Movie Info

This film's title refers to a fictional legal loophole which states that American veterans cannot be treated in VA hospitals unless their illnesses are related to military service. The pinchpenny administrator of a Kansas City hospital intends to follow this proviso, while his irreverent staff tries to circumvent the rules.

    Wasnt bad, I thought it would be alot better considering the cast. Loved when Keifer donned the floppy hat as his father did in M.A.S.H

    A very entertaining film about the innovative means by which doctors in a veterans hospital try and actually help the patients,while being thwarted by bureaucratic red tape at every turn.

    I was an army brat so I appreciated this movie since the goverment *does* work this way. However, I also work in a hospital and I realize there are rules for a reason. This movie was very idealistic and I can't believe no one got locked up for some of the stunts they pulled.

    If you haven't seen this movie then I recommend it, kinda like a modern day M*A*S*H, but instead of a far off distant country the war is right here at home, as a group of doctors have to break every rule in the book to defeat a corrupt system and get America's war veterans the treatment they deserve.
