A great little movie.
my trepidation upon watching this wasn't Michael J Fox. I've long thought that the knocking he takes is nothing to do with him being a poor actor. Far form it, he's a great actor. The bad mouthing is because of his success. It becomes 'trendy' to put a successful actor down.

Any trepidation I had was purely down to the fact that it was described as a rom-com. And it isn't. Not really. It's only a rom-com in the way that Groundhog Day is a rom-com. It has a magic that lifts it far above labelling it as a rom-com.

Fabulous little movie that deserves a space on anybody's DVD shelf.

Trivia

While in the restaurant in Los Angeles, Nancy Lee asks Hank (Woody Harrelson), "Isn't that a star?" He replies, "No, that's Ted Danson." Danson was Harrelson's Cheers (1982) co-star.


Quotes

Dr. Benjamin Stone: The music's stopped.
Vialula: What music?


Goofs

In the restaurant, before and after the mayor holds the town council meeting in order to offer Dr. Stone a salary, the catsup bottle moves closer to / further from the napkin dispenser between every shot. Also the orientation of the napkin dispenser changes from face on / side to Dr. Stone.


Alternate Versions

For its reruns on the Nine Network in Australia, four scenes have been edited: -The line "I'm so fucked" was removed, and so was all following dialogue in the court scene. -In the dream scene, they cut a silhouette of Julie Warner nude, where one nipple was visible. -They cut most shots of Julie Warner nude after emerging from the lake, to remove the sight of her bare breasts. -They cut the line "Now I'm sending him to Athens General. You're his regular fucking doctor, you get your fat ass out of bed, get down there and go with him." Presumably this is because it is usually shown as an afternoon movie and such a scene is not appropriate for this time of day.
