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

Twisted and funny. It's cute... like "Scrubs" gone wrong
11 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was looking for something simple and funny, and "Intern Academy" is most definitely it! It centers around the internship of six young interns working in the worst run hospital in the country, "where the dregs of med school are sent when every other hospital turns them down". While it may be cheesy, it is pulled off in such a way that it is simply funny and a thoroughly enjoyable movie.

Pat Kelly and Peter Oldring play the two prominent interns in the film, though no one intern is truly the "main character". Dan Aykroyd makes an appearance as the negligent and nonchalant hospital director. Some of the other cast members are well known, though certainly not blockbuster names. All in all, the group has good chemistry.

In terms of plot and design, "Intern Academy" is highly similar to NBC's "Scrubs". Oldring and Zack Braff's characters are both quirky, geeky type doctors who are definitely lacking in suave. Both narrate their shows in a satirical voice-over, making for a hilarious view on life in a hospital. This is especially true in the case of "Intern Academy", where characters are in constant mishaps amid the womanizing director, cynical supervisor, terribly run surroundings, and a heap of typical "young-person" life problems.

If you're looking for the next "E.R." or a serious attempt at the portrayal of intern life, this is not the movie for you. But if it's satirical, witty, and in some cases crass humor that gets you, the hilarious blunders of these six interns will have you laughing in no time.
