December 10, 2004
The best thing about Seducing Dr. Lewis is that, like the villagers, director Pouliot and writer Ken Scott seem to grow the story, and our affection for these characters, organically.

It's great to escape to these fantasy burgs, especially if they're as quaint and colorfully peopled as Ste. Marie-La Mauderne.
October 1, 2004
Heart-warming fun it is, and heck, after getting to know its quirky people, it might not be that bad moving to Ste. Marie-la- Mauderne.

You'll enjoy spending a little time with these people, as the film performs a low-key but irresistible seduction of its own.
August 6, 2004
Seducing Dr. Lewis has its warm moments, but it suffers from fuzzy thinking, and that's no way to seduce anyone.
August 5, 2004
Sails by on charm and confident character acting, even if it's navigating well-charted waters.
July 30, 2004
So disarming, it's hard to say anything but good things about it.
July 30, 2004
Has the cozy, genteel warmth of a well-worn blanket.
July 22, 2004
A movie that reminds viewers benumbed by big movies of the joys of being small, of the deep laughs to be found just beneath a simple surface.
July 22, 2004
A genuine feel-good movie -- nothing memorable, nothing brilliant, but guaranteed to put you in a good mood.
July 16, 2004
Has a quick-thinking, screwball exuberance that doesn't strain itself.
July 8, 2004
It's all fitfully amusing, thanks in large part to Bouchard's richly comic performance, but the movie is never very involving, and it overstays its welcome by a good, long while.
June 30, 2004
What follows is only moderately amusing and almost totally lacking in suspense, surprise or even uncertainly.
June 29, 2004
Wears out its welcome some 20 minutes or so before the end, and leaves the nagging sensation that all this has been done before, and better.
June 17, 2004
The makers of Seducing Doctor Lewis have a cute idea, but they milk it for all they can, sometimes to the point of embarrassment.
June 17, 2004
There's shrewd wit to Pouliot's gentle, no-bull farce.
June 17, 2004
No more than a TV sitcom stretched to feature length. All that's missing is the laugh track.
April 29, 2004
One of those infuriating comedies that practically nudges you in the ribs while you're watching to remind you how cute and funny it is.
April 2, 2004
A slow-simmering treat.
April 2, 2004
Pouliot's direction remains as taut as it began -- he's not above broad farce, but never dips too far into the maudlin well. Neither does the cast.
