Medical-grade likability

Watching "Doc Hollywood", I was happily reminded of "Local Hero". Not that they're sharing the same plot, but both feature a young main character sent-to/stranded in a baffling small town, and bot have comparable levels of warmth in each story.

Here, it's Michael J. Fox sentenced to community service in a one- pig hamlet. And that folksy fascism slowly becomes endearing quirk as he starts to get attached. These situations bring out the comedic side of this romcom, but it's the scenes he shares with (the utterly winsome) Julie Warner that really suck you in. Their (hesitantly budding) relationship is mature, develops organically, and I have nothing negative to say about it.

Or the movie overall, for that matter. It's charming, sweet, and beautifully populated by the right character actors.

This is my kinda romance.

7/10

What's Up Doc?

this film is a pure piece of American schmaltz, it has a small town, a man who changes his way because of the good hearted folk around and if you look up Capraesque in the dictionary the chances are that it would say "... see Doc Hollywood". I love it. As a piece of pure Sunday afternoon entertainment it has the lot. Winning performances from an assured cast, a witty script and a warm cuddly plot. Michael J Fox brings a natural charm to his role as the young Doctor who is forced to spend time in the small southern town of Grady (home of the Grady Squash) after knocking down the judges newly built fence. He is sentenced to community service under the eye of the irrascible Dr Hogue (played with relish by Barnard Hughes)and unexpectedly falls in love - with a woman (Lou the ambulance driver) and gradually the town.

The plot's simple,but Fox carries it well,and he's surrounded by a great bunch of quirky characters.Warner is great as the love interest,sexy,tough yet vulnerable,and always believable.It's funny,heart-warming,and thoroughly enjoyable. The cast is filled out with some lovely turns from David Ogden Stiers, Woody Harrelson and Bridget Fonda and a hilarious knowing cameo from George Hamilton. For me the real stars are the locals - the man who is so pleased with the Doc he brings him a pig, the couple who see the Doc so he can read their letters, and a jack-handed fisherman are just a few of the small delights this film offers. The movie teaches some broad values while giving tons of smiles!

Overall rating: 8 out of 10.

A Michael J. Fox Winner!

Michael J. Fox is leaving his position at a hospital for the life (and pay) of a plastic surgeon in Hollywood. His coworkers are disappointed in him, but off he goes, until a cow in the middle of a country road causes him to have an accident and damage a fence in the process. He is then sentenced to volunteer his services for the little town, but he's got to get to his job. The old crotchety doctor, played by Barnard Hughes, and Lou, played by Julie Warner, are some of the town's colorful characters. Despite his wanting to leave, other feelings start to develop. This little film about a small town and its proud citizens is a crowd-pleaser and will certainly leave you happier than when you started it, even with its predictable complications and obvious ending. Not much really happens here, not much to speak of. But its simplistic charm will win you over and I do believe, except for the "Back to the Future" series, it's one of Michael J. Fox's better films of the 1980s and 1990s. Confidentially, one of my favorite films of his is "The Secret of My Success," which I do think is funnier. But I'm not complaining, just enjoying the porch-side view.
