Movie Info

Academy Award-nominee Kathy Bates (Misery, Fried Green Tomatoes) helms and stars in Ambulance Girl - her third directorial credit on a made-for-television feature. Produced by and originally aired on Lifetime Television, Bates's comedy concerns Jane Stern (Bates), a housewife of thirty years who spent decades building a successful career as co-author of food books with her husband, the rebounding ex-alcoholic Michael (Robin Thomas). When faced with a chain of unpredictable mood swings, Jane refuses to take the problem lying down - and instead opts to launch a new career as an EMT. Her only real obstacle is a beast: she must learn to surmount her phobia of ambulances! Ambulance Girl waxes bittersweet, interweaving over-the-top, hilarious comedy with perceptive insights and a heartwarming message about confronting and overcoming the obstacles that life dishes out.

Audience Reviews for Ambulance Girl

Any movie with Kathy Bates in it is bound to be good. I'm usually not a fan of Lifetime movies, but this one is a cut above. My only quibble: the argument scenes between her and Robin Thomas just don't quite ring true and things seem to magically resolve between them too quickly. I read that in the book that the movie was based on the couple does get divorced. Great, uplifting ending!

She did what she wanted in the end and it worked out. One sometimes finds their reason for living and being happy in other ways.

Good acting, but not much more than you'd expect from a lifetime movie. Kathy Bates is always good, tho.
