Product Description

Brendan Gleeson is Murray, a once proud fisherman who now, along with his former colleagues in the harbour of Tickle Cove are out of work and forced to live off welfare.  Prohibited from fishing enough to make a living and the community spirit having faded a long time ago, the Mayor comes up with a dazzling plan – a giant corporation need a location to build a factory and Tickle Cove could be just the right place. But there’s just one problem – in order to qualify, they must have a doctor in residence. Which they don’t have…

Tickle Head was once a proud fishing community that now draws government welfare checks. A factory is interested in the location, but there is one problem. They require a full time resident doctor. Taylor Kitsch plays the role of this Canadian version of "Doc Hollywood." The young Dr. Paul Lewis was caught at the St John's airport carrying a wee bit of cocaine. In order to get out of being reported he agrees to work 30 days at the "inbreed" harbor...too small to be called a village which was like Ireland with hockey.

Once there, it is up to the community to do whatever it takes to make him stay there which involves a long line of deception engineered by Brendan Gleeson.

We have seen this plot before in a number of different ways. I am a big fan of Brendan Gleeson who always seem to play a likeable quirky character. He did not disappoint. A comedy that made me smile and even laugh a few times.

Parental Guidance: No f-bombs or nudity. Implied sex with women screaming orgasms in the beginning.

A joy of a film based in the waters of the Atlantic Coast of Canada and how a community where fishing has been reduced by quotas etc and a community striving to survive, attract new work opportunities and most importantly a doctor. Through circumstances a Doctor is sent for one month to work off an infringement and how the community strives to ensure he stays. Gentle humour but funny and an ensemble cast that are brilliant, lead by a tour de force performance from Brendan Gleeson. A film should not be missed!

I was a bit weary watching this film from the start as it felt like it had a contrived quaintness to it, however it won me over and I'm glad I watched it, it's a remake of a french movie 'le Grande Seduction' aka The Seduction of Dr.Lewis. I like Brendan Gleeson a lot, a charismatic screen presence who always gives the impression he's having fun in what ever role he plays. Beautiful photography compliments the location, all in all, a nice wee movie with heart

The town of Tickle Head used to be thriving fishing port on the coast of Newfoundland. Then the Cod dried up and the town fell on hard times. We join them at a time when everyone is on Welfare and the civic pride has ebbed from the small community like the fish stocks that once sustained them.

Then a petro chemical company turns up willing to build a reprocessing plant on the coast – their bid is in with a chance. They like the community but they must have a resident doctor which they do not have and with a small community are unlikely to get one. Brendan Gleeson plays Murray French erstwhile fisherman and now – by default – the Mayor and they think all is lost when fate deals them a one off chance. A plastic surgeon gets sent to the community as a way to avoid awkward questions by the law. The community decide to do a charm offensive in order to persuade this man that their little community is heaven. Problem is he loves cricket, jazz (and they don’t) and he has a life he is already missing. Can the plan ever work?

Now this is a gentle comedy and the laughs are more smiles than guffaws. However, the film has a warmth and charm that makes you want to watch it. Taylor Kitsch is nice, charming and plays the part to a tee but Gleeson as ever is the scene stealer though he is ably aided in this respect from a supporting cast that all do a fine job. If you like your humour on the slow side but don’t mind a tale from left field then I think there is a lot here to enjoy.

Oh my - lots of laughter in the audience with this film. Brendan Gleeson is like a bear coming to life after a long hibernation, gathering his fellow villagers together to rally to this one purpose - get the doctor to stay. A really lovely film to put a spring in your step.

Very amusing and lots of gorgeous Canadian scenery but a little lightweight. However, this film has a "feelgood" factor that makes it worth watching.

Brendan Gleeson must be one of the easiest actors to watch in any film yet is not as critically acclaimed as many lesser gifted artists of his genre. He surpasses himself with honest delivery of a genuine script and is unassuming in his portrayal of a self declared community leader and in his interactions with his fellow cast members. This film is a gentle joy. No special effects, no killing or mutilation just beautiful scenery and a wonderful mix of small harbour people. This film is a hidden gem, one I am delighted to have found. For relaxation and smiles this film delivers.

I loved this movie - the characters were so well studied and the actors faultless in their performances. Brendan Gleeson is marvellous but the ensemble cast are equally commendable.
