Storyline

An 'Airplane'-style spoof of hospital soap operas: a brilliant young trainee can't stand the sight of blood; a doctor romances the head nurse in order to get the key to the drugs cabinet; there's a mafioso on the loose disguised as a woman - in other words all the usual ingredients present and correct, though in this case the laughs are intentional.

Trivia

Some movie posters featured a man and woman embracing in the sea wearing surgical gowns and masks spoofing the famous beach waves romancing scene in From Here to Eternity (1953). Taglines for this movie poster read "From here to maternity...". Moreover, a working title for the previous year's comedy picture Paternity (1981) was "From Here to Paternity" with that working title also being a spoof of the classic Hollywood film From Here to Eternity (1953). Further , two filmed productions with that classic title had also just been recently made and broadcast prior to both Paternity (1981) and Young Doctors in Love (1982) [See: From Here to Eternity (1979) and From Here to Eternity (1980)].

One Of The Best Spoof Movies I Have Ever Seen!!!! Totally Underrated!!
15 August 1999 | by MovieMan-112See all my reviews

The title "Young Doctors In Love" is perhaps the most mis-leading title ever to be placed on a movie. It sounds like a passionate love story and not like a hilarious "spoof" movie that it is. This spoof movie is right up there with the "Airplane" and "Naked Gun" movies, and far better than the spoof movies of the 90's such as "Wrongfully Accused", "The Silence Of The Hams", "Hot Shots", and "Mafia". Rather than poking fun at other movies, "Young Doctors In Love" has an original idea for a spoof movie....A Total Satire On Hospitals!!!! It may sound crude or it may sound boring, but it's nothing less than hysterical and once you view it you'll find out for yourself. I loved Michael Richards' performance as a hit man who tries to assassinate a mafia godfather who is a hospital patient but has trouble finishing the job due to his mis-identity. Hector Elizondo is great as the godfather's son who dresses up as a woman to disguise himself from the other gangsters! There are great one-liners! Dabney Coleman was marvelous as an insane surgeon! Every doctor, along with the patients, have something comical about them that makes all of the jokes that are pulled in this film work 100%! If you love silly movies, then this one is a treasure! Stay tuned during and after the credits! Great fun from beginning to end!
