Where's morphine when you need some?
14 November 2002 | by VideoPokerAddictSee all my reviews

Even at a swift 72 minutes, the time seems to stand still. "Tender Loving Care" is a medical melodrama/sexploitation flick...and it's very painful.

This film is filled to the brim with terrible acting, gratuitous female nudity, and a plot that will make the most serious movie watcher burst out laughing. At one point, I actually thought I had slipped into unconsciousness for about half an hour. Picture this: a hospital patient is laying in a bed paralyzed. A nurse is telling him about how she is going to help him get through physical therapy so that he can walk again. The guy screams at her and tells her to get out. The next thing you know, the guy's all better and the two of them are rolling around together naked. Sadly, that's just one example of editing which seems to indicate that entire scenes were probably removed from the movie.

I usually like to describe the plot a little bit. However, I have too much respect for my time (and yours) to bother with that. Let me assure you...the events that occur are both silly and boring. 1/10
