Utterly predictable, but well acted, story of a big city doctor forced to reassess his value system after being stranded in a small town.

It works, with a hearty sense of character connection established, making the climax less about programmed theatrics and more about two smart, hesitant people finding comfort in an unlikely situation.

Has no real taste of its own, but, in its mildness and predictability, offers the reassurance of a fast-food or motel chain.

The whole thing bubbles along nicely in a fresh, witty, unselfconscious manner, making you forget the dated Capra-corn message.

When you see films like this show how easy it is to make a formulaic rom-com without offending, it's a nasty surprise to see what the Nancy Meyer's are churning out.

While retaining his boyish appeal, Mr. Fox also seems a shade more substantial this time, possibly because he is seen making life-or-death decisions when not fielding comic lines.

Insignificant but fun "city boy meets country girl" tale. Julie Warner is gorgeous, and David Ogden Stiers is wonderful as the mayor.

far from classic comedy. It is however a reasonably worthwhile romantic comedy. Some of the chemistry between Fox and Warner is a bit off, but thanks to a sturdy support cast - including Bridget Fonda and David Ogden Stiers - our visit to Grady isn't so b

Entirely sweet and lovable. An "old-fashioned" modern comedy that actually works.

This isn't a bucolic, small-town romance. It's "Porky's."

Overall disappointment, despite some sporadic laughs.

Predictable as sunburn on the 4th of July, it is a film as ingratiating as its star.

Dialogue and plot and all the rest take second place to the conviction that two people only have eyes for one another. Fox and Warner create that feeling, which is why "Doc Hollywood" is a sweetheart of a movie.
