What to know

critics consensus

Doc Hollywood isn't particularly graceful in its attempt to put a '90s spin on its Capraesque formula, but a light touch and a charming cast make its flaws easy to forgive. Read critic reviews

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).

    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.

    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.
