This film is actually outstanding!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Gross Anatomy [VHS] (VHS Tape)
While "Batman" may have pulverized "Gross Anatomy" at the box office in the summer of 1989, this film is worth seeing and owning. This is one of those films where you watch a character evolve in front of your eyes. You watch Matthew Modine's character grow up in the film. As he goes from being a careless flunky who barely made his way through a less than top notch school, you see, as Christine Lahti does, that he has something. And she makes him believe it. And finally, in an emotional scene in a diner and an even more emotional scene in a classroom before final exams, you realize he has. A great film that you can identify with if you've ever known someone who seemed to have so much going for him, but seemed to just want to play the clown all the time. A beautiful film.
