Our Score
In this mildly diverting, folksy comedy, Michael J Fox plays an ambitious California-bound intern who finds himself press-ganged into becoming a doctor in a small South Carolina community. Revelling in local idiosyncrasies, director Michael Caton-Jones gives the film a lovely golden glow and produces a Capra-like hymn to the small town as Fox's dreams of becoming a rich cosmetic surgeon are put on hold. It's insubstantial, but corny fun all the same, and Fox is as charming as ever. The talented supporting cast includes Woody Harrelson, Bridget Fonda and David Odgen Stiers; look out, too, for a neat cameo from George Hamilton near the end.
