I wonder if anyone in history has ever excitedly proclaimed "Hey gang! The new Matthew Modine movie's out!" With nothing notably good or bad going for it, "Gross Anatomy" may be the gold standard by which all two-star movies should be judged.
When I originally first viewed this film year ago, it struck me to be quite morbid, a bit frightening with a twinge of sarcasm. Ironically year later, I find myself suffering with the very same disease Christine Lahti's charactor suffers with and dies from (Systemic Lupus). As a fully developed adult now, I can see the inner meaning of this flick and if you too enjoy venturing into the unknown waters of cinematic wonders....then this is definitely a film to add to your collection. It is most meaningful to me now. You will likely enjoy the abstract contrast of each charactor as they interact and find yourself tranformed into somebody else's life experience. A definite must see!
Entertaining meet-cute romcom starring Matthew Modine and the underrated Daphne Zuniga. Standard story of a young man's search for place in the world, typical trials and tribulations. Yet this movie has an emotional depth and charm that's usually missing from these flicks, and the leads do more than mug for the camera. Solid acting, script makes this a solid recommendation for those looking for a few laughs and an interesting romance.
Esta película trata de un estudiante de medicina mediocre que tiene potencial para ser brillante , sin embargo no sabe lo que quiere, pero todo eso cambiará gracias a las vivencias en el transcurso del primer año. La película enfoca el punto de que a los estudiantes de medicina se les pide demasiado, olvidando que son solo humanos; se les pide que sean robots, olvidando la humanidad, que es lo que convierte a un doctor en un sanador.
LOVED this movie. Saw it in the theater and laughed (and cried). Later, in med school, I would quote lines (esp. from Dr. Banumbra) in my anatomy class. Wish I could find the soundtrack on CD but no luck. If you know of a way to get a CD, message me.
