Storyline

Benjamin Stone is a young doctor driving to L.A where he was offered a new 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 hrs of community service at the local hospital. All he wants is to serve the sentence 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?

Goofs

(at around 10 mins) Doc Stone first walks into the hospital. There is no Time clock under Dr Hogue's Picture, but the next visit to the hospital about 21 Mins, we see the time Clock. It's not like the time clock was put there for Doc Stone because of his community service, there are several other time cards also. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Benjamin Stone: What are you talking about?
Mayor Nick Nicholson: Timing. Same thing with women. And with southern women, well, they require a substantial commitment. You might have to stay here six months, I don't know, maybe more.
Dr. Benjamin Stone: Are you a betting man, Nick?
Mayor Nick Nicholson: Well, I have been known on occasion.
Mayor Nick Nicholson: It'll take me about a week.
Mayor Nick Nicholson: Wait a minute, you mean... Vialula in the center pocket?

All the Good Things Michael J. Fox Represents.
14 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Entertaining little film that has Michael J. Fox on his way to Hollywood to take a job as a plastic surgeon. However, a freak accident causes his car to be wrecked in a small country town that he just cannot seem to get out of. Naturally his very expensive car needs special parts that are not available. Thus the townspeople try to get Fox to stay as the community doctor to take the place of the elderly acid-mouthed Barnard Hughes. While in town Fox locks horns with Woody Harrelson, becomes friends with the priceless Bridget Fonda (who has her eyes on Fox) and falls in love with ambulance driver Julie Warner. George Hamilton is also a real scene-stealer as the all-world plastic surgeon that Fox should be working with. A really good over-achiever that represents all the things that make Fox a likeable screen presence. Far from excellent, but a charming little production nonetheless. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
