Michael J. Fox,
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

When this film was released on VHS in late 1991, two previews that preceded the start of the movie were for Danny DeVito's film Other People's Money (1991) and for Christina Applegate's film Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead (1991). Michael J. Fox co-starred with both DeVito and Applegate in Tim Burton's science fiction comedy Mars Attacks! (1996). See more »

For its reruns on the Nine Network in Australia, four scenes have been edited:
-The line "I'm so fucked" was removed, and so was all following dialogue in the court scene.
-In the dream scene, they cut a silhouette of Julie Warner nude, where one nipple was visible.
-They cut most shots of Julie Warner nude after emerging from the lake, to remove the sight of her bare breasts.
-They cut the line "Now I'm sending him to Athens General. You're his regular fucking doctor, you get your fat ass out of bed, get down there and go with him."
Presumably this is because it is usually shown as an afternoon movie and such a scene is not appropriate for this time of day. A detailed comparison of the uncut version and the edited version can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m020R8pdis See more »
No surprises. No twisted plots. No complex love triangles. This movie is pure and simple entertainment. Okay, it's hokey and it's trite, and the acting at times is marginally acceptable. But it goes with the terrain, for this is America, this is life, this is real people.
It's a nice movie. See it. Don't expect much, but do expect to enjoy it.
