Young Doctors in Love VHS
"There's almost always something to laugh at" (Los Angeles Times) at City Hospital, where the amorous young interns think that love or at least lust is the cure for everything! Michael McKean (A Mighty Wind), Sean Young (Fatal Instinct), Hector Elizondo ("Chicago Hope"), Harry Dean Stanton (Anger Management) and Michael Richards ("Seinfeld") star in this "refreshingly wacky" (LA Herald-Examiner) hospital parody from the director of Overboard and Runaway Bride! The new interns at City Hospital are desperately hoping to survive their first year of residency which could prove difficult, since their minds are on the wrong body parts!But when one of the residents suddenly requires emergency surgery, the young wannabes must pull themselves (and their clothes) together and learn to mind their bedside manners!

In brief we have a brand new group of interns beginning their stint at City Hospital on New Year's Eve. The film is roughly divided into episodes by the holidays of the year and moves along at a brisk pace. The interns range from a snobbish, disliked but brilliant Dr Simon August to the inept, pill-seeking Dr Phil Burns, all under the `famous' and tough tutorage of Dr Prang.
The interns go from classes in pathology and surgery to their stints in the emergency room - always followed by rousing word play and tricks (my favorite is the urine taste testing).
Playing as concurrent plots, a gangster dresses up as a woman to watch over his hospitalized father and is wooed by one of the interns for the entire year. Another is the rival gang's hit man (Malamud) whose rotten luck gets him everything from an anal exam to a kidney transplant. The only thing he misses is his assigned target, gang chieftain Sal.
This movie is a no-brainer. You needn't think about it, just listen to the dialog. It's enjoyable although perhaps a bit inane. Some strong language and nudity probably makes this unsuitable for children under 13.
Was not a hit when released.
It is still very funny.
A lot of cameos from THEN soap opera stars. Look quickly for Demi Moore & Ed Begley Jr as well. You see Garry Marshall briefly.
A movie for the time, the then topical references.
No extras of course. Good the did it letter box or wide screen
NO chapter list inside.
Now, this bugs me. On the back of the DVD holder it of course talks about the film & mentions ONLY SOME of the actors in it.
It is how the actors that are mentioned the I do NOT like. Sean. INSTEAD OF MENTIONING her notable films "Blade Runner", "No Way Out" & "Stripes" it mentions a bomb movie "Fatal Instinct". Michael McKean, easy should have mentioned GARRY MARSHALL'S classic hit "Laverne & Shirley" no we see "A Mighty Wind". Hector Elizondo OK for the mention of "Chicago Hope" but how about GARRY MARSHALL's "The Princess Dairies" or any other of their hit movies? Harry Dean Stanton, OK on the""Anger Management" mention but where was the "Alien" mention?
Michael Richards of course got "Seinfeld" but it does not explain how the above mentioned actors were talked about.
Also, Dabney Coleman got NO mention in this section .
A funny film to this day.
The 80's brought us Airplane which was a spoof on airplane movies. Young Doctors in Love is a spoof on anything about the hospital, its residents, and patients. The calamity in the hospital is hillarious and its got it all: nudity, comedy, cross-dressing, and suspense. Everything is going on in this L.A. Hospital: Doctors healing ducks, doctors flirting with nurses, patients flirting with nurses, interns taking drugs, a chemist drinking urine, the head doctor throwing a temper-tantrum when someone wears the same white cap as himself as well as taking out a gun and trying to shoot his accountant, and finally a hitman sent to kill a member of the mob who is a patient at the hospital.
If you like spoofs then this is a must have for your collection. It's one of those classics that doesn't get much attention. The first time you watch it, you'll laugh hysterically. Then a few times later it will just be hillarious and silly. So if you like comedy, hijinks, spoofs then this one will grow on you.
