Synopsis

The residents of a once-thriving Newfoundland coastal town are having trouble finding a way to make a living since the collapse of the fishing industry. They're thrilled when a plastics manufacturer proposes to set up shop—until they find out the contract requires a resident doctor.

The villagers decide to woo Dr. Lewis (Taylor Kitsch), an ethically suspect cosmetic surgeon temporarily banished to the physician-starved seaside. Without revealing their plan, they take up the doctor's beloved sport of cricket, falling all over themselves in an effort to persuade him that their sleepy hamlet is loaded with cosmopolitan sophistication.

  • 5 stars "If you want a charming and amusing break from the disfunctions of the "real world" this is your film."
  • 5 stars "Best movie we have seen in ages! A truly funny, warm story without any slap-stick, rude humour! It is a good representative of what life is for some Canadians and there is lots of good Canadian humour in the movie. Well done and kudos to all involved!! Love the scenery, too!"
