A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
A comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional.
The St. Albert's Teaching Hospital, considered the worst in the public health system and administrated by the corrupt Dr. Cyrill Kipp, receives a new group of interns: the clumsy Mike Bonnert, whose parents are prominent doctors and forced him to study in medical school; the wolf Dale Dodd, who has come to the hospital to meet women and falls in love for the nurse Cynthia Skyes; Marlon Thomas, who like to play pranks with his mates; Mira Towers, who aims to be a great surgeon; Christine Lee, a very efficient student and promising doctor; and Mitzi Cole, who works as stripper to pay for her medical school and becomes Mike's girlfriend. Leaded by Sarah Calder, the group spends the year learning how to become medical doctors in an environment of lots of confusion. Written by

of all the movies i have ever seen this ranks in the top ten and no i'm not kidding. complete overlooked for some reason this movie by dave thomas of sctv and grace under fire fame .... not to mention the uber cult classic strange brew ... deserves a better shot. catch it on movie channels or rent or buy it on DVD and video because there is nos shortages of laughs in this movie. who says comedy in canada film comedy films is dead? i'm no expert but this I know what makes me laughs and this had me rolling on the floor for several minutes at a time and not just when i saw it but after wards just thinking about some of the hilarious situation and great dialog between characters. lots of recognizable Canadian talent and greatly written by the legendary dave thomas look out for this film.
