Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Second City takes on National Lampoon
26 January 2005 | by (San Pedro) – See all my reviews

This movie was a lot better than I thought it would be. This film was killed by critics who were obviously expecting a lot more. Expecting not much at all because of those reviews, it became apparent this movie deserved far better. Every joke was great, the setup and executions were flawless. Dave Thomas' character was very strong, not the idiocy I expected. The main cast of new interns all did a quality job, and I'm looking forward to seeing them all in the future in other endeavors. There was some very intelligent sketching going on. It peaks near a moment when an intern must inform a family of failed operation resulting in death. This joke was long, drawn out and agonizingly funny in a Fawlty Towers sort of way. Then it instantly shifts back to low-brow slapstick. This can be disconcerting for some, but they throw so many jokes at you so fast, you quickly get right into their groove. This is polished comedy brought to you by the masters of the craft.

What wasn't so great was the movie part. They spent the whole budget on the cast, because the set and the costumes all looked "C" grade, maybe even porn movie bad. Dan Akroyd as the partying hospital administrator had me thinking he was skimming hospital funds, right from the beginning, but that is not the case. His character needed just a few lines of justification for his lifestyle and it would be easier to identify with. Matt Frewer's character was interesting, but bordering on unbelievable. They probably cut his believability in favor of outrageousness.

If you are a fan of modern National Lampoon movies, then you should see this one, it's much better. This isn't a "Classic", but it's a great movie to put on when you've brought friends home after a night at the pub.
