"Young Doctors in Love"
Young Doctors in Love (1982) is a General Hospital spoof in the tradition of Airplane and Naked Gun. Ebert didn't find the subject of hospitals amusing, and awarded 2 stars. IMDb voters have it at 5.0. I thought it was the funniest thing I had seen all year, and was laughing out loud through most of it. It takes place in City Hospital, where a groups f interns have been assigned to a real asshole of a chief surgeon and medical director of the hospital. The main plot centers around a relationship between a brilliant but totally insensitive wannabe Beverly Hills surgeon, Michael McKean, and Sean Young as a daughter of a country doctor who dreams of reviving her fathers mostly charity practice. Naturally, the two end up together.
Major sub-pots include an intern who is holding down two other jobs to pay for school and romances nurse Pamela Reed because she has the key to the drug cabinet, and a Mafia Don and the hitman sent to whack him. The hitman is tortured by medical science the entire film. The Don's son (Hector Elizondo) dresses in drag as a disguise, and has a relationship with another of the male interns. There are many running gags, such as the repeated testing of of the controls for a hospital bed with a patient in it, oversexed candy stripers, and PA announcements.
We have lengthy breast exposure from former Heffer (Jan 1982) Kimberly McArthur and Peggy Trentini. Watch for Demi Moore, Ed Begley Jr, Frank Pesce, Dabney Coleman, Harry Dean Stanton, Michael Richards and a host of cameos from Soap Stars. Sean Young looked great, and pulled off the romantic lead. The standout performance was from Pamela Reed as the "plain" nurse Sprockett, guardian of the drugs.
Perfect comedic timing made virtually every gag work, some of the lines are sidesplittingly funny, and there are five hilarious things going on behind the main action at all times. I will admit that I have a weakness for films of this nature. Judging by the comments at IMDb, I am not the only one. I suppose the key question to ask yourself is whether or not you can find hospitals and medical situations funny. For me, this was an A+, but the proper score is C. Some genre lovers will adore it, others will not care for it.

I'm not sure which film holds the record for "most money lost",
but this baby is going to give it a good run. With a production
budget of $155 million, plus another $60 million in marketing and
distro expenses, it is not far behind Titanic in cost, but seems
destined to finish with about a $40-$50 million gross. The
individual theaters get about half of the gross, so the investors
will be left holding the bag for nearly two hundred million dollars!
They will make some of that up with DVD sales, cable rights,
overseas rights, and rentals, but that will still leave a gaping
hole in someone's pocketbook.

8 Days a Week (1997):
Cute, forgotten film.
Writer/director Mike Davis has a specialty story, and it goes like
this: the sincere, articulate, sensitive but insecure guy pursues
true love with the incredibly hot girl of his dreams, who is also
his soul mate. His idealism is contrasted to the carnal appetites of
a best friend who denies the existence of true love and lives only
to pursue the perfect orgasm. The dream-girl is very sweet, but
she's currently overlooking our nerdy hero to pursue a relationship
with a shallow but studly asshole. Our hero is undeterred by the
competition, and undistracted by obstacles and temptations. It is
true love, after all, so he is completely steadfast in his
idealistic pursuit, for nothing can prevent him from winning his
true love's hand.
Throughout his career, Davis has worked that premise from several
different angles. In this particular version, Peter, our quixotic
hero, spends the entire summer camped on the front lawn of his
neighbor, Erica. She has been Peter's best friend since childhood
but takes no notice of him since she grew up into a major babe and
started to notice football players. Peter didn't plan to take such
dramatic action, but he was urged to by a story from his
grandfather. It seems that back in Italy their mutual ancestor was
not noticed by his own true love, so he decided to
stand under her balcony until she came down and loved him back. He
did and she did. The scene in 19th century Italy was shown in sepia
tone, with the lovers played by the same two actors.
(If you hadn't noticed, the Italian balcony story is a
tribute to the film classic Cinema Paradiso. The author is obviously
a major film fan, and sprinkles this story with cute references to
several films. You musn't miss Peter's dowdy parents acting out the
door-smashing scene from Body Heat.)
The dream girl does not immediately respond to Peter's attentions.
In fact, as you might expect, she finds his stalking to be
flattering but also slightly creepy. Were he not a lifelong friend,
she'd probably be calling the police. Her parents don't mind at all,
however, since they like sweet, comfortable Peter much better than
the creepy football player with the hot car. Peter's horny friend
informs him quite correctly that no guy has ever been able to woo a
hot babe if her parents like him, so he concocts a plan to defy her
religious parents and cause Erica to see him in a different light.
While he baits his hook from her front lawn, he has a chance to
observe the comings and goings of everyone in the neighborhood.
Since he has too much time to kill, he forms some mistaken
impressions of his neighbors' activities, often imputing malicious
intent where none is warranted, as if he were a Hitchcock character.
Peter's runaway imagination gives the author a chance to make some
funny and rich observations about the difference between appearances
and reality, but the important thing about this is device is that it
allows Peter to learn that people are far more complex and wonderful
than they seem on the surface.
As time goes on, Erica starts to talk to Peter, they bond ...
well, it doesn't matter, does it? You always know how these
nerd-pursues-babe stories are going to end (except maybe for The
Last American Virgin), so the important thing for you to know is
whether the situations, observations, and jokes make it worth
In this case, they do.
I like this film, always have. It shows a lot of genuine wit, a true
understanding the uneasy balance between idealism and raging
hormones in adolescence, and an embracing compassion for its
characters, even some minor ones. Mike Davis writes some intelligent
and witty observations which come through in the dialogue and in the

prostitution, the film stars Daryl Hannah, Denise Richards and

Richards, under her wing. Richards who is doing her thesis on
prostitution gets an inside view by conducting a series of

the directory of your choice. UnZIP and play from there.
I know this is not especially convenient, but it
allows the film clips to continue. I can protect .zip files from
hot-linking in the same way I can protect still images. For some
reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not

work-around. Perhaps I will find a better solution, but for now this

Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble
with the codecs for these movies:
FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use
DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use
virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the
vids says the video codec: DivX Decoder Filter & audio
codec: Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with.
When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG
Layer-3. A friend of mine told me about compressing the
audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been
capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this
info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp &
asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using
camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could
never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost
too much to buy in my opinion.
A reader says:
You mentioned that some users were
having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool
designed to determine what codec is needed for a video.
http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you
or your users.
I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9.
The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in
the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly
larger, and slightly lower quality.

Silvester Countdown (1997)
I don't know much about German
actress Marie Zielcke, except that she can make a lot of noise.
I suggest that you close your windows and turn the volume of
your speakers down before you download clip #1, unless you want
your neighbors to think you're having a good time of course.
Clips 2>5 don't require such treatment although things seem odd
here. All clips come from the 1997 film "Silvester Countdown",
early in Marie's career.

Last but not least....A bit of skin was shown on a recent episode of "Verschollen". Both Katrin Brockmann and Alexandra Sydow show some side view toplessness.
'Caps and comments by Dann:
"And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself"
Pancho Villa has been called a revolutionary hero. He's also been called a murderer, bandit, and outlaw, but perhaps another label also applied: con man. This 2003 quasi-documentary by HBO purports to tell the (kinda) true story of Villa's alliance with the 1920's silent film industry, an alliance which helped Villa finance his revolution against the leaders of Mexico. It undoubted contains a lot of fiction, but the basic facts are true, because in fact famed Producer D. W. Griffith did indeed stage-manage and produce films of actual battles that Villa and his men participated in.
As the film makers follow Villa in his battles, events are staged and battles fought during the daytime (when the light is good), in order to allow filming. Villa is glamorized and in return receives money to fight his war.
Not a bad docu-drama, although draggy in parts. How much of this is true is questionable, because although the making of the film did indeed happen, the film itself has been lost so there isn't much factual evidence around to support the events in the movie.
This movie was capped on request, for a Alexa Davalos fan. She didn't show much in this, but she still looks great.

Bond, James Bond...Bitch! - The London Daily Telegraph reports that the
producers of the James Bond series are considering Colin Salmon, a tall,

They reportedly want to update the stale franchise with a new direction, and
a hard-boiled thriller plot with fewer gadgets and explosions and a black

They could even give James Bond a new name, like, say, "Shaft".
