...it emerges as a magically entertaining blend of heart, soul, mind, wit, farce and, finally, an idyllic idealism.
...the performances are juicy and intelligent.
...a drily funny satire about America's health care woes...
Lumet moves with confidence between satire and intriguing, heightened-reality spirituality.
There's not much that's subtle in Lumet's tirade against the greed of the medical profession and health-care system and patients who sue.
Lumet tries to do for the US healthcare system what he did for the television industry with Network, but it's lacking bite.
Not bad medical drama hampered by the fact that for a great deal of the film Spader's character behaves like an idiot. This isn't the actor's fault, he gives as good a performance as possible considering the actions forced on him by the script. He is certainly supported by a high quality cast in almost every role. Kyra Sedgwick is annoying and not terribly convincing but she is the lone sore spot. Helen Mirren is wonderful as an understanding and compassionate nurse and Albert Brooks a stitch as a loony doctor well past his sell by date. The script has many holes but it does make a strong plea for doctors seeing patients as people not just science projects and sources of income.
