Quotes

Gary Tucker: I don't know why I had sex with Tipper Gore.
Dr. Beth Noonan: Gary, you dream about having sex with everyone. It's why you're here. It's one of your problems. Why should it be so strange to dream about Tipper Gore?
Gary Tucker: Well, I'd like to think I had some standards.
Dr. Beth Noonan: Tipper Gore is a very attractive woman.
Gary Tucker: She's not my type.
Dr. Beth Noonan: Oh. So being a sex addict does not preclude being sexually discriminating?
Gary Tucker: No, er... yes, absolutely. I mean, when I see people on the street, I only undress those that I find attractive. Now ...

An excellent insight into women's minds using the considerable skills of Stockard Channing to their fullest.
18 September 2002 | by (Placerville, Calif.) – See all my reviews

Most astute U.S. movie viewers have recognized the talents and skills of the excellent Stockard Channing. More gratifying than seeing her quality finally recognized with the rolls she has played in both "A Girl Thing" (TV mini series)and in the White House centered series is the appearance of the former series as an entire movie available in both VHS and DVD in video stores nationwide. As a psychiatrist whose patients are mostly women she serves as the hub through which the four different patient centered episodes revolve.

Although the first three would result in a "good" movie, we are not let off or let down by that being the case. In the forth and final episode Channing (the "doctor") figures not just peripherally as the center but is the main character around which the drama unfolds. Confronted by an intelligent and dangerously angry patient, the doctor fails to establish any healthy connection and terminates the patient. This soon results in a violent confrontation, which puts the doctor, another patient and a few others in an explosively dangerous situation in the psychiatrist's office. Channing herself is challenged to justify all that she has done, is doing and believes in concerning people in general and her professional relationships with them in particular.

Does she make a good showing for herself? Is anyone hurt, and, if so how badly?

Watch the movie and find out.
