When this film was first released on VHS in late 1991, two previews that preceded the start of the movie were for Danny De Vito's film "Other People's Money (1991) and for Christina Applegate's film "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead" (1991), both of which were released the same year as Doc Hollywood. Michael J. Fox the main star of this movie would go on to co-star with both De Vito and Applegate in Tim Buron's sci-fi comedy "Mars Attacks!"(1996) five years later. See more »

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.
