Storyline

The only thing standing between Dr. Lisa Leland (Candice Cameron Bure) and the wedding of her dreams in the Hamptons is a 2600-mile drive from Los Angeles to Long Island. However, a run in with the law in the country town of Normal, North Carolina leaves Dr. Leland with a choice--Jail or community service. Sentenced to serve three days as the town's doctor, Lisa has her world turned upside down by a man she would never expect. Quickly, Lisa finds that there's a lot more to Normal than she could have ever imagined. Written by Jeremy M.

Did You Know?

Trivia

During Dr. Leland's court appearance for her speeding violation, Lester mentions she was driving a 3-series with the N54 twin-turbo inline 6 (engine). This is an actual BMW car and engine combination, and the internal company code used to identify this particular engine really is "N54". This means that despite his simple nature, Lester is a car aficionado and likely very tech savvy for even knowing this information. See more »

Goofs

Promotional materials, including the description on Netflix, say that the movie is set in North Carolina. Lucas says that the lawsuit over the cross is in Buncombe County Superior Court, which would be in North Carolina. However, the film repeatedly indicates that it is set in Louisiana. Lisa is shown leaving Texas, she tells Steve she is driving into Ouachita Parish, Louisiana, and then she is immediately pulled over. There is a map of Louisiana in the city court. The ACLU lawyer ask Lucas, "Is your cocounsel admitted to the Louisiana bar?", And the Louisiana state seal is on the wall behind the judge. When Lucas is in the restaurant and pulls the deed out of the envelope, the seal shows it is registered in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. See more »

Remake of Doc Hollywood
16 January 2019 | by tabunoSee all my reviews

28 July 2014. This predictable, but enjoyable gender twist on Doc Hollywood (1991) starring Michael J. Fox as the urbanized male doctor instead of Candace Cameron Bure who doesn't get top billing even though she has the lead role makes for an entertaining city slicker who begins to appreciate the simple ways of country life.

Unlike Doc Hollywood, there are not as many short clips of doctor visits to fascinating patients and the dramatic older doctor scene is not as pronounced which makes for a more monotone storyline. The old doc in Finding Normal though is a much more fascinating, if less irascible character.

Overall, Finding Normal while it has its charms, some nice photography, and a more prominent religion tone, doesn't quite have the charm and comic finesse as Doc Hollywood.
