Editorial Reviews

Based on the memoirs of Jane Stern. Oscar winner Kathy Bates stars as Stern, a food writer riddled with crippling anxieties and phobias, who is able to overcome what plagues her by becoming a volunteer EMT. Ambulance Girl is an inspiring story about a woman who found, somewhat late in life, that in helping others I learned to help myself.

I'm a 45 year old male who is currently recertifying as an EMT. I read Jane's book of the same title and then later found the movie. I must admit, as a guy, this movie was a little sappy and made for the woman viewer, but I admit I liked it. If anything it's something to watch with the members of your family that don't have any idea what drives someone to become an EMT and the possible problems it can cause in family relationships. Overall I find this a great movie!

Kathy Bates stars and directs in this hilarious story about a successful woman hitting her mid-life crisis. Paranoid of just about everything, Jane is a celebrity food writer who makes the most bizarre career change choice by becoming a volunteer ambulance driver. She bumbles down this new path while struggling to save her floundering marriage. This movie speaks to the hearts of anyone who has hit a rough patch in their lives, and or marriages.

I have not watched yet but the outside envelop was fine and no damage but when opened the case was cracked and damaged. Should have shipped it better or the case was already cracked and if so that's poor service!

I originally saw this movie on the Lifetime network. This is a good story with a good message. Kathleen Bates is superb. The acting was credible, the filming and editing were perfectly balanced. This has the potential to be a 'chick flick', however I think it has universal appeal.

I had to check to see who wrote this because it followed my own life in so many ways. I was an "ambulance girl" at an older age like Kathy Bates in this movie. I made the same dumb mistakes. When I first started as an EMT I did like she did, went to bed with my clothes on, just waiting for the radio to go off. It brought back so many memories, and was a great part of my life. Love it!!!

I decided to purchase a copy of this DVD because I caught this movie on TV a few years back and found it really enjoyable. So much on TV has the same old stale themes - either it's dark...heavy on murders, violent deaths, forensics and autopsy graphics; or it's the opposite and is unbelievably silly with adolescent, immature and off-color humor...and a pointless waste of time. This movie was neither of these extremes. I found it very entertaining and Kathy Bates plays her role flawlessly.

I've been a fan of Kathy Bates ever since I saw her in a small role in ARTHUR 2. She's a wonderful actress, and can handle comedy and drama roles. (who can forget MISERY) and was very happy to see AMBULANCE GIRL on DVD.

Kathy Bates performance as a new EMT is spot on in this movie. It proves you're never too old to try something new, and have a great time doing it. Helping others in their time of need makes YOU a better person, able to laugh and enjoy life, the good, the bad and the hilarious.
