Benjamin Stone is a young doctor driving to L.A., where he is interviewing for a high-paying job as a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. He gets off the highway to avoid a traffic jam, but gets lost and ends up crashing into a fence in the small town of Grady. He is sentenced to 32 hours of community service at the local hospital. All he wants is to serve the sentence, get his car fixed and get moving, but gradually the locals become attached to the new doctor, and he falls for the pretty ambulance driver, Lou. Will he leave?Written by

Near the beginning of the film, when Ben goes outside his cabin toward the lake, there is nothing visible on the path as he sits down. After Lou emerges topless from the lake, and has her exchange with Ben, she then reaches down to pick up a robe to cover herself. The robe would have been clearly evident to Ben as he approached the lake, but there was nothing in the prior shot of the path. See more »

For its original UK cinema release, one use of 'fuck' was removed in order for the film to receive a 12 rating. All video releases are uncut, upgraded to a 15 at first and lowered to a 12 in 2006. See more »
A video I have in my collection, which is limited to only those films worth watching repeatedly. A bit of a fantsy, but so refreshing. The photography and lighting helps make the sets believable and adds much to viewers ability to loosen their mind and become involved in the movie.
