Storyline

Dr. Charlie Keegan had a thriving medical practice in New York City until he was busted for insurance fraud. In order to keep his license, he must serve six months working at a elder care facility in upstate NY. While he is there, he starts to connect to the residents and staff, and regains a passion for patient care. But, his boss is now the one defrauding insurance companies and residents. Will Charlie choose his career or his patients' welfare when his six months are up? Complicating matters is Nurse Jill (Emmanuelle Chriqui), who is passionate about the facility and always demands the best from Charlie. Written by beetlejump

A real Indie sleeper
10 August 2006 | by harleydbreiteSee all my reviews

Despite my girlfriend dragging me to its advanced screening in NYC, I was most pleasantly surprised with "Waltzing Anna." Sure, it is a great chick flick, but it was actually more than that. It turned out to be a very well-written comedy with a nice dramatic edge. Artie Lange, Howard Stern's side kick, was hysterical and played well with the female lead who I immediately recognized from "Entourage" as E's girlfriend. The male lead was very convincing as an ethically challenged Doctor. I'm sure we'll be hearing more from him very soon with his top notch performance. With appearances by J. Eddie Peck from "All My Children" and the old Judge from the Clint Eastwood spaghetti-westerns, the cast was of great support to a funny script that was well shot. If you enjoyed "Hitch," you will most certainly find "Waltzing Anna" well worth your while. It will remind you of "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" meets "Patch Adams!"
