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 Lou drives Ben to his house call, she steps out of the ambulance, and a cushion (from where the accelerator and brake pedals would be) falls out of the door. 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 »
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.
