Review of "Young Doctors in Love," DVD version

Review of
Young Doctors in Love, DVD version

Four out of five stars
 To a first approximation, this movie attempts to do to doctor movies what “Airplane” did to airline disaster movies. It is a spoof of many of the standard elements used to create tension in movies with a medical plot and like in “Airplane” many, if not most of the jokes are predictable groaners. Some of the more original jokes are carried out too long. For example, one of the doctors is a little person and they answer the phone. Too short to put the landline headpiece back on the holder, there are several ineffectual tries before he is successful.
 If you have the right sense of humor, you will find this movie funny. However, if you apply too much intellectual rigor and predict the jokes in advance, not hard to do in many cases, then you will find it a bit tedious.
