Worth watching!

Nothing happens up until an hour in.

Still, fictionally, it can be an enjoyable one.

Waste of time, even on a boring day .

This is actually quite an engaging, optimistic film with the 6" 3', handsome, OJC as an electrician who sets up a business in a small town - only to discover that the residents think he can cure their ailments.

Seriously one of worst movies ever I've seen lately.

And finally, it was so predictable.

Definitely worth watching.

Worst Movie Ever .

Spoiler: confusion, wining, aaaand he refuses to accept this gift.

I couldn´t keep watching it as it bored me.

The film had a lot of potential but it was ultra boring and dragging for too long.

Set mostly in Nova Scotia, the film reeks of depth and richness, with breathtaking scenery and Nathan Wang's full-orchestra score.

The main character is all whinning, unbearable.

It is hard to follow, confusing, and just skips and leaves other ends untied.

Lice the directing which looks the part at first sight, but the director allowed for flat, dull performances without pushing the actors to do better.

Decent cast and a good story, was an enjoyable watch, no sex or excessive violence scenes, just an all round decent watch.

We watched this film which was a total light relief and enjoyable!

The plot is extremely predictable (even obvious), doesn't even have a moral, not one that isn't a mainstream already at least, Disney movies are less predictable and have deeper teachings.

I give it 2 stars because it promised so much and didn't give anything at the end, just the typical and predictable mainstream movie.

I highly recommend that you do not watch this movie unless you love cringey movies with bad writing, bad acting, and no plot line.
