Editorial Reviews

"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!

There are some yucks in this burlesque of TV's General Hospital, but you've got to concentrate. What is interesting is the cast and what has become of them since, and what they were before, especially in TV land.
Michael McKean, who plays the lead, has had a fine career, but I remember him best as Lenny Kosnowski on TV's "Laverne and Shirley"; Michael Richards who plays a bumbling mafia hit man became Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld; Patrick Macnee was John Steed of "The Avengers" from the sixties; and although I'm sure you recognized Dabney Coleman, do you remember him from "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman"?
Director Garry Marshall directed both "Laverne and Shirley" and "Mork and Mindy," which explains why "Young Doctors in Love" plays a little like a scattered sit-com. Nostalgic in a cameo was Jacklyn Zeman, who, last I heard, is still "Bobby" on General Hospital; and eye-popping in another cameo was Demi Moore, looking, I swear, a little like Monica Lewinski with muscles. (Moore was at the time also a regular on General Hospital.)
This was the year (1982) in which the beautiful Sean Young, who plays the female lead here, was also presented in the classic sci fi "Blade Runner." Who can ever forget those close-ups as Harrison Ford examined her eyes to see if she was a replicant?
The prize for best acting, however, goes to little known Pamela Reed as frigid mousy Nurse Norine Sprockett, who is sexually awakened by being romanced for her key to the drug cabinet, a surprising bit of reality amid the general mayhem.

Jammed full of soon-to-be-stars(or at least well-known performers) had tough job to better other hospital satires, and succeeds. Gags are just as good or better than most send-ups of this type, and story has beginning, middle and ending. Loved Dr. Prang's (Dabney Coleman's)role. Michael McKeon delightful obsessive-compulsive. Strictly for those who can enjoy this type of comedy.

This movie does for medical school what "Airplane!" did for airline disaster movies. It is a must-have for those with a love of the "B-side" comedy and have a few extra beers. It follows the paradigm of a soap opera with all the cliches. Without giving away too much, an assorted bunch of characters pursue their medical degree (and each other) and move through their residency. Good for some very good laughs: "Due to a mix up in urology, there will be no apple juice served today." Oh, yeah, Demi Moore and Sean young...

Shortly after this movie was available on VHS in video stores, my family rented it and found it to be extremely entertaining. After more than 20 years later, we thought it would be fun to see it again. You'd be surprised at how many of my friends have never heard of this movie.

Another movie that my father chalks up as: YUCK! And again, now he likes it, lol. Go figure! This movie is not short of stars as well as up and coming stars. It stars Sean Young (Dune, No Way Out, Stripes), Harry Dean Stanton (Down Periscope), Michael McKean (D.A.R.Y.L.), Dabney Coleman, Ted McGinley (Married...with Children, Love Boat, Revenge of the Nerds), Taylor Negron (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Last Boy Scout, Easy Money), and Michael Richards (Sienfeld). Don't forget Hector Elizondo also.

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.

If you're into hospital humor and don't mind a little nudity and such, this video is for YOU! It also has a nice theme song at the end. It's MUCH more exciting than watching Jeopardy, or your money back (in my opinion)!

I first saw this movie in a theater years ago and loved it. Having seen it on dvd recently, I noticed more name actors in the movie than I had at first. If you liked the movie "Airplane" from years ago, then you'll like this movie. Both movies have many site gags and one-liners. A warning to some people, there is a fair amount of profanity in the movie, mostly by one character. This is very funny and raunchy movie.

I worked as an RN all my life so I "got" every scene. I think I saw it as a rental soon after it was made & I have thought about it & giggled over it ever sense. I am so glad to have it in my possession now. Anyone should appreciate the humor, especially hospital workers.
