RMG 313 – Doc Hollywood (1991)

May 3, 2023

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by Maggie Kruger, and they’re geeking out over Doc Hollywood (1991) and

  • Michael J. Fox
  • naked cars
  • the cast
  • romance with plotholes
  • and much, much more!


”Beverly Hills… The most beautiful women in the world… Plastic surgery… What do these three things have in common?” asks Dr. Ben Stone (Michael J. Fox). “Me… in less than a week!”

It turns out to be an eye-opening week… and Doc Hollywood turns out to be a charmingly funny film. Part Alex Keaton of Family Ties, and part Marty McFly of Back To The Future, Fox’s Stone is a brash, newly-minted MD whose cruise toward the medical fast lane takes a small-town detour! The town is Grady, South Carolina, Squash Capitol of the South, and home of salt-of-the-earth folks who give the West Coast bound hotshot the seasoning he lacks.

Newcomer Julie Warner is Lou, the ambulance driver who sends Stone’s heart racing. Woody Harrelson is affable insurance agent Hank. Bridget Fonda is Nancy Lee, who hopes Stone is her ticket out of town. David Ogden Stiers, Barnard Hughes, and Frances Sternhagen are Gradyites who know it’s better to follow your heart than your wallet. The wisdom is warm… The laughs are abundant… Doc Hollywood is a surefire prescription for comedy cheer!
