Doc Hollywood [DVD] [1991]

Michael Caton-Jones' lightweight but engagingly performed romantic comedy Doc Hollywood comes to DVD with a standard full-frame 1.33:1 image that fails to reproduce the original theatrical aspect ratio. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. There are no subtitles on this release. This by-the-numbers film gets a by-the-numbers DVD release that is palatable mainly because of its inexpensive price. Fans of Michael J. Fox may want to give this disc a look, but there is nothing on it for DVD enthusiasts.

    Synopsis


    Doc Hollywood
    A big city doctor is stranded in a small rural town, where he finds love, professional challenges, and a pet pig, in this comedy. Fresh out of residence at a Washington D.C. hospital, hot-shot plastic surgeon Ben Stone (Michael J. Fox) hops in his Porsche and is headed for California, where a lucrative practice in Beverly Hills awaits. However, Ben accidentally plows into a fence in Grady, South Carolina; the wreck puts Ben's car out of commission, and the town's mayor, Nick Nicholson (David Ogden Stiers), sees to it that Ben is sentenced to perform community service while he's waiting to get his car back on the road. For a week, Ben will serve as the community's general practitioner, filling in for the aging Dr. Hogue (Barnard Hughes). Many of the locals go out of their way to make Ben feel welcome, since they need a new full-time doctor and hope he'd be interested in staying on a permanent basis. Ben isn't especially interested until he meets Lou (Julie Warner), a beautiful, intelligent, and feisty local woman he first meets as she's enjoying a morning skinny-dip. Ben now finds himself wondering what the odds are of winning her away from her less-than-brilliant boyfriend Hank (Woody Harrelson). Bridget Fonda has a memorable supporting role as Nancy Lee, who doesn't make much of a secret of her attraction to Ben. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      This is the exact same movie. Only it's a doctor instead of a race car.
