Storyline

Follow a group of interns in a large teaching hospital. When Jo, Chief Resident, has a breakdown the interns are reluctantly placed under the tutelage of the senior resident known as The Fatman. Like "M*A*S*H," "The Hospital" and "St. Elsewhere" (which is drawn from this story) this film is closer to the truth than the public wants to know. Written by Raymond Clay <banquosa@concentric.net>

The movie is great, a must for medical students and residents who didn't read the book.

It's fulla GOMERS and LOLs in NAD. Also Kramer playing Pinkus was awesome. It was fairly close to the book, left out alot of the raunchy stuff the book had. Hmm, actually the book was about 70% raunchy, so it did leave alot out, but the plot is there. I really enjoyed the video, and I hope they eventually dvd encode it and release it for everyone to enjoy.
