Movie Info

Cocky young doctor Ben Stone (Michael J. Fox) is off on a road trip to California in pursuit of a relaxed and high-paying career as a plastic surgeon to the rich and famous. But before he can pass the Mississippi River, he crashes his car on a small-town judge's property in South Carolina and incurs a community service fine, to be served out at the local hospital assisting the aged town doctor, Dr. Hogue (Barnard Hughes). Ben is soon tempted to stay by a pretty ambulance driver (Julie Warner).

  • The movie oversells its whimsy and fits its quirkiness into a sitcom formula that's as preordained as the hero's moral rejuvenation.

  • Has no real taste of its own, but, in its mildness and predictability, offers the reassurance of a fast-food or motel chain.

  • The whole thing bubbles along nicely in a fresh, witty, unselfconscious manner, making you forget the dated Capra-corn message.

    Top Critic
  • While retaining his boyish appeal, Mr. Fox also seems a shade more substantial this time, possibly because he is seen making life-or-death decisions when not fielding comic lines.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 3/5
  • This isn't a bucolic, small-town romance. It's "Porky's."

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • Dialogue and plot and all the rest take second place to the conviction that two people only have eyes for one another. Fox and Warner create that feeling, which is why "Doc Hollywood" is a sweetheart of a movie.

    Cute movie - although the plot is exactly as expected. A highfalutin big city doctor lands up in a small town complete with caring people and "a beautiful, intelligent, and feisty" woman and has to consider his options.

    Campy, off color, and not so daringly original, Doc Hollywood is enjoyable, if not a slight cliche of the standard comedy. Julie Warner keeps it very heartfelt and original, even if she has to be nude in order for her to be in it.

    He was a big city plastic surgeon...in a small town that didn't take plastic. A lot of LOLs. Typicall Michael. J Fox Movie

    Doc Hollywood is a pretty good comedy/chick flick. I've seen this quite a few times and I never tire of it. Michael J. Fox is such a great and funny actor. I'm a fan of Bridget Fonda, however, I didn't like her character at all. The part just wasn't right for her. I noticed the reviews of this film here on Flixster and the rating is very low or people aren't interested. I think if people give it a chance they will enjoy it.
