Critic Reviews for The Secret of Dr. Kildare
It's all pretty silly, but the actors project just the right tone, avoiding life-or-death hysterics and keeping a sly edge.
Audience Reviews for The Secret of Dr. Kildare
An okay movie. I was a bit annoyed that Dr. Kildare didn't really have any kind of deep dark secret, or any secrets at all, really. I did enjoy the movie, though, it was charming and dramatic. Of course, I knew what was wrong with Dr. Kildare's patient two scenes before he did, so he seemed like an idiot, as did some of the other characters sometimes. This movie started out trying to be a dark dramatic adventure, but ended up a sweet happy family friendly drama instead. It's interesting, but disappointing.More
