SAVING GRACE (2000)
...but I did enjoy the film, because SAVING GRACE is the first time we ever see Martin Clunes as "Doc Martin". I absolutely love the TV show Doc Martin and have watched it from beginning to end multiple times, so this film, while it was completely predictable and not funny, was interesting because we get to see Martin Clunes, Tristan Sturrock and the town of Port Isaac. All three would go on to star in the television show. It was very interesting to see just how wildly different the character of Dr. Martin was in this film compared to what he became in the show 4 years later.
Long story short: SAVING GRACE is a mildly entertaining film that is totally predictable, but it's worth a watch for Martin Clunes fans. As for me, I'll never watch it ever again.
