Perverts in the hospital.
8 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

It seems like many of the specialty channels owned by CHUM here in Canada enjoy airing these British sex comedies from the 1968-1982 era. I have to admit that I've always found them to be middling at best but they are much better than anything produced by the Americans. I'd rather see French sex comedies but the British output isn't too bad and the 70's era ones have always offered up an honest slice of life in England.

Rosie Dixon is about a teenager who has come to work at Adelaide Hospital as a nurse. Unfortunately for her, the hospital she's working at has some absolute rakes in it. The whole movie sees her being sexually assaulted (in humorous ways, mind you) and sexually harassed by patients and the young doctors. However, she also finds love.

Pretty much everything about General Hospital and medical dramas are spoofed here. Yes, there is the requisite T&A. Of course, there is no way we could see a hospital be allowed to run today with rampant sexual harassment by the staff but here they seem to mask it with the fact that everybody here is open to some loving.

Also, unlike a lot of films that have an exclusive British cast, this film has a few Scots and Irish characters in the mix. The acting is actually good here; as they are actually trying. It's a lot better than 2006's hardcore pornstars attempts at method acting.

A pretty good effort; I don't think this is on DVD but I'm sure in the British Commonwealth Nations it can be seen occasionally.
