Storyline

Spencer, a struggling comedian and hypochondriac, is convinced that he's dying from a bizarre array of symptoms. Out of options and armed with a binder full of WebMD printouts, he flies cross-country to his quaint hometown in upstate New York to consult with his five childhood doctors in a single day, planning to take the red-eye back to L.A. that night without seeing any of his friends or family. The only exception is Jay- the sweet, emotionally repressed townie Spencer convinces to chauffeur him around. "5 Doctors" is the story of their increasingly disastrous day together, as Spencer is prodded, dilated, and biopsied into accepting that the cause of his symptoms and his reasons for coming home may be more complicated than he thought. Written by Matt Porter

Sweet, Funny, and Nostalgic
14 March 2018 | by miloburkeSee all my reviews

5 Doctors is a truly unique coming of age comedy. It's got incredibly funny scenes and performances (Bobby Moynihan, a hilarious Joe Pera), but it really sets itself apart with the charming, easy chemistry between the two leads. The movie is subtle and really has something to say about getting older and going home. It's also full of knockout supporting performances, beautiful, warm cinematography, and great music. Can't recommend it enough.
