PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A young doctor on his way across the country to a job interview crashes his car in a small town and is sentenced to work for several days at the town hospital.
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.
Dr. Benjamin Stone:
I don't need a car. I'm moving to Los Angeles. Why would I need a car?
Stone's jacket has a hood in some scenes but it's missing in others.
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.
