  1. Very ''Waking Ned Devine.'' There's shrewd wit to Pouliot's gentle, no-bull farce.
  2. 75
    May not offer anything new, but in its well-tested premise, you can't fail to be seduced.
  3. The story isn't as funny as it tries to be, but it grows increasingly winning as it goes along.
  4. 70
    Most important, the film has a terrific supporting character in St. Marie herself, portrayed by the real Canadian island of Harrington Harbour (pop. 300).
  5. The makers of Seducing Doctor Lewis have a cute idea, but they milk it for all they can, sometimes to the point of embarrassment.
  6. 50
    Agreeable but overlong.
  7. Reviewed by: Anna Smith

    Amused, maybe - but you won't be seduced.

    Funny, but with a light touch that some may not appreciate.
