When I was a boy, Tickle Head was a proud fishing harbor. Back then, people from Tickle Head were strong, dignified, brave. Their days were filled with purpose. By no means was this life for the faint of heart, for the weak, the lazy. As I look back now, I can truly say life was a thing of beauty.

I am not usually a fan of these types of movies, but my friends convinced me to see it and I am so very glad I did. It was funny and silly and very well acted. I must say the "Dr" was not hard on the eyes either.
The setting of Tickle Head was beautiful and reflects on the times in Newfoundland.
My husband saw the French version of the film years ago, but really enjoyed this version as well.
I would totally recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good laugh. There people of all ages teens to seniors in the theatre and we all laughed at the same times.
