Audience Reviews for Where Does It Hurt?

Barely a comedy with a horrible musical soundtrack. Sellers plays a hospital administrator who urges unnecessary surgeries from the staff. Purely a dark comedy and spoof of hospitals, the goal is to keep patients indefinately in the hospital to acquire insurance benefits or their homes.

The acting is pathetic, the cinematography television-like, the script lousy. Without Sellers, this would have been a rotten.
