Roy 'Chubby' Brown,
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

First let me say, I'm a big fan of SCTV, Kids in the Hall, Newsradio etc. I think Dave Foley, Dave Thomas and Dan Akroyd are very talented comedians, and I have enjoyed most, if not all, of their work up until now (see "The Wrong Guy"). I'm a proud Canadian because, in part, of the contribution these people have made to the entertainment industry in general.
However, this film is a black spot on their collective record. People will no doubt think that "I didn't get it", or "I'm not taking it in the spirit it was intended". This couldn't be farther from the truth.
Sadly, this was quite possibly one of the worst films I have ever seen, and one of the very few I have ever walked out of. I went to it on a free pass, so I'm not even angry that it cost me money. I didn't walk out of it on the grounds that I was offended or upset but because I couldn't convince myself that there was any reason to stay. Normally, if a movie is poor, I would sit through it just to "see how it ends". In this case, because of a complete lack of plot, there simply was no reason for this film to exist. Juvenile humour and gags so predictable it felt like you'd watched this as a 12 year old, and were viewing it for a second time as an adult. Cardboard performances of 'cue card' dialogue reminiscent of a failing SNL skit. Interspersed with suddenly serious and gory bits of "ER" action. I could go on, but I've already put more thought and writing effort into this comment than went into the film. Stay away from this rotting pile of exploded colostomy bags, for the sake of the children.....
