Goofs

The judge sentences Dr. Stone to community service as a doctor because he's "a licensed physician." However, since medical licensing is by state, it is highly unlikely Stone would just happen to be licensed in South Carolina. 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.
