Beyond Terminal
25 August 2003 | by (Deming, New Mexico, USA) – See all my reviews

If you're more than twelve years old, do yourself a favor and don't see this. It's just plain awful. It's about a young man who has just joined the endless ranks of those who have been refused a career in medicine, after having been browbeaten into believing that he must become a superdoc by his dad when he was a youngster. He comes from one of those families that believes the fetus isn't viable until it graduates from medical school.

Failing that achievement he goes around capturing "patients" and giving them a muscle relaxant, which prevents them from squirming or speaking but not from feeling pain. It also doesn't paralyze their speech organs enough to prevent them from moaning, or their periocular muscles enough to keep them from rolling their eyes. He then opens them up, while carrying out one of those casual jokey surgery-type conversations with the nurses and other physicians (who exist only in his head). "Hmmm, looks like we've got a bleeder here." "Would you mind closing the patient up, doctor?"

Maybe I'm making it sound more amusing than it is. It's not bad enough to be funny. It's just plain bad. Trust me, you don't need this operation. You suffer enough in real life.
