The Washington Post says it's "cozy, picturesque and soothingly reassuring." The remake of the 2003 French-Canadian farce Seducing Doctor Lewis is another folksy-funny somewhat deadpan charmer a la Waking Ned Devine and The Full Monty — another uplifting film about residents of a small town who get in touch with their inner mojo. The plot centers on a small harbor village in need of a doctor so that the town can acquire a new factory, which will save the town from financial ruin. Resident Murray French (Brendan Gleeson) leads the search. When he finds his candidate, Dr. Paul Lewis (Taylor Kitsch), he and the whole town employ various tactics to get the good doctor to stay.
