Editorial Reviews

Aspect Ratio: 1.78:1
Matthew Modine (ANY GIVEN SUNDAY) stars as Joe Slovak, a brilliant first-year med student whose casual, nonconforming approach to life gets tested when he enrolls in gross anatomy, the toughest course in med school. Joe's freewheeling, independent style creates funny moments in the classroom, but puts him at odds with his demanding professor (Christina Lahti, HIDEAWAY), who questions whether her class rebel has what it takes to be a doctor. On top of that, Joe falls in love with his no-nonsense lab partner (Daphne Zuniga -- THE SURE THING, TV's MELROSE PLACE), who won't let anything, especially romance, interfere with her plans. And while Joe's never done anything by the book, he proves he does have what it takes to succeed -- without changing his ways!

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.

"Gross Anatomy" is a predictable, but heartwarming, little film about five eager first-year medical students. I appreciated the occasionally goofy medical humor and the fine performances from all the actors, notably Christine Lahti, as a rigidly serious, if ultimately well-intentioned anatomy instructor This film has been sadly overlooked for years; it deserves more than a passing glance.

In my opinion, this movie never received the recognition that it deserved. As a medical student hopeful, I was drawn in by the medical school backdrop of the film. Aside from that,I also feel that the movie's use of drama, romance, and comedy in the main characters' struggle to discover things about themselves and each other was superb. Although largely underrated, this remains one of my favorites.

Gross Anatomy follows one year of new medical students who end up together in a lab group and deal with the tribulations of their stressful assignments and responsibilities in order to pass. Matthew Modine plays the somewhat stereotypical "hotshot streetsmart bad boy" with some hidden insecurities, and his love interest, fellow medical student Daphne Zuniga (of Spaceballs) plays a more serious headstrong type who somewhat disappointingly goes for Modine a little too fast and soon to be totally realistic.
While the movie may be labeled as a Romantic Comedy, there honestly is not much comedy to be had in this film as it is not all that funny, nor does it really try to be. While the film mostly should be labeled a drama, there are few comedic influences as well as a vibe that almost promises a comedy but never really delivers, albeit a few scenes. No, this is mostly a fast-paced drama that at first feels as if it will not fare too well, except that during the second half of the film (and the cast's 2nd half year of medical school) tensions begin to arise, friction between lab partners and love interests as well as friction between students and professors.

What makes this film work is that while the script is not too daring on comedy or memorable choreography or even dialogue, it doesn't ever really try to be, but seems more concerned with building characters, ones in which reveal themselves throughout the school year in forms of deeper insecurities and stresses. While the characters do try and keep a professional attitude at first, the tensions of medical school assignments soon begin to weigh them down, thus they end up depending on each other emotionally more than they originally thought they would need to.

For my opinion the year of 1989 it has been one of the most exciting years in the history of cinema. Three movies from this particular year changed my life. First Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, second Dead Poets Society and third is Gross Anatomy. the last one i saw it the first time in TV but i loved it right away. This movie mixtures two of my favorite items. Colleges and relationships. It has believable and true characters and most of all it has Daphne Zunigha. Its directory it is honest and modest but above all some melancholy corresses the story. I think the character Matthew Modine plays is a genious who he dosen't know he is genious. I loved it and i am waiting for the european edition of the movie because i cant buy it yet.
Dont miss it either youare med student or not...

I had never heard of this movie until I read about it in a book, First Cut, which I bought from Amazon. Very interesting this 80s movie that shows life in a laboratory of human anatomy, although it is a simple romantic comedy. It's a shame that the film has no subtitles, even in English, it would help facilitate in their understanding for foreigners. A pleasant rarity.

I have no idea how close this comes to a first year medical student's experience. I am sure they took liberties like most movies and TV shows of the same or similar genres. It is however a very well acted, funny at times, and even dramatic movie. In some ways it was pretty typical of the movies back then. Matthew Modine played the good natured, fun loving "almost" slacker perfectly. He gets into med school on average grades and good test scores, and is initially more concerned with having fun until he turns it around. They had the hot girl that he had to chase, the obnoxious foil, the friend that can't stand the pressure who all come together as a group to get through class.

The standout performance to me was Christine Lahti, who played a great hard ass professor. They definitely wanted to portray her as the tough teacher who cared (another great 80s movie cliche), and she did a great job with it.

I remember thinking it was a great movie when I first saw it years ago, and it is definitely one of those that holds up well over time. While I do not think it is the greatest movie of all time, it is very enjoyable and definitely worth the hour and a half or so your time. There is not really anything in the way of extras on the Blu Ray, nor is it going to be the stellar picture and audio you get with newer movies. That said, if you are a fan of the movie already, 80s movies in general or any of the actors, it is worth adding to your collection.
