Was it medically accurate? Was it anatomically accurate (that is, do residents actually look like that?)?

To think of it, I never seen a movie centered around a doctor...except with the Wedding Planner with Matthew McConaughey as a pediatrician. hahha does that count?

The one that pops off the top of my head is Doc Hollywood with Michael J. Fox where he gets stuck in a country town and becomes their doctor. Not a great movie but it was funny. Not necessarily a doctor movie but it is based on medicine or in particular insanity is One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I love that movie.

I cried at the end where the Chief killed McMurphy.

I would say The Doctor and Patch Adams is the best movie on doctor or medical school.
