Goofs

When Dr. Hogue is having his heart attack and Dr. Stone uses the defibrillator paddles on him, he tells Nurse Packard to set the machine to "400 Watts." Defibrillation magnitude is measured in joules and/or watt-seconds. While older defibrillators could deliver a maximum of 400 joules the model defibrillator shown in the film (a Physio-Control LifePak 5) could only deliver a maximum of 360 joules. See more »

Better than I imagined.
27 November 1998 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When I sat down to watch this film I thought I would be very bored. It turns out that this film is intoxicating. I couldn't stop watching it at all. Michael J. Fox does a good job in the lead role, and there are great character turns from Woody Harrelson and Bridget Fonda. The love story between Fox and Julie Warner is very funny to watch develop and their timing is classic romantic comedy. The director, Michael Caton-jones, does a great job with a typical fish-out=of-water script and the score from Carter Burwell is exceptional. I had alot of fun watching this film.
