Storyline

A group of doctors in a veteran's hospital must contend with their hopeless situation: too many patients and not enough beds. The main cause of their problems is bureaucratic belt-tightening by the hospital administrators. The doctors are determined to give the best service they can, even if that means defying the orders of management and performing unauthorized operations.

Trivia

Apparently Ray Liotta, as one of the "good guys" felt that he should dislike the actor playing a "bad guy", John Mahoney, both on and off the set; when he saw Mahoney in wardrobe or makeup, he would either rush out of the room or immediately end all attempts at conversation. At the end of the shoot, Liotta smilingly approached Mahoney and told him it was a pleasure to work with him, to which Mahoney replied, "I wish I could say the same." See more »

One that got away - great film
23 February 2005 | by jan-adlington-2See all my reviews

This film was made in 1992 but i only heard about it when i saw that it was on FX channel last night (22 Feb 2005). Ray Liotta was a goody which i'd never seen before, and he was great. The story is about low paid doctors trying their best to provide war veterans a complete medical service of treatment (including psychiatric) and operations. The hospital is overcrowded, understaffed,underfunded and under-supplied of medical provisions. The film takes us through the trials and tribulations of the underhanded tricks they pull to get provisions and perform operations on the needy Vets. The uncaring chief Administrator, wants the hospital run by the book, which does not include certain types of treatment and operations. Indeed, it seems like he doesn't think there should be patients in his hospital at all! - so of course, they have the expected run-ins with him. Plenty of famous faces as patients, a little bit of romance, humour in the right places and an exciting climax, complete this great drama - well worth watching. I'll be getting the video i think!
