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.

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.

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

The picture, which was directed by Michael Caton-Jones, is corny and filled with quaint country eccentrics, but it has a redeeming sweetness of spirit.

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.
