"Beverly Hills. The most beautiful women in the world. Plastic surgery. What do these three things have in common?" Dr. Ben Stone (Michael J. Fox) asks. "Me, in less than a week!" It turns out to be an eye-opening week. And Doc Hollywood turns out to be a witty charmer. Stone is a newly minted MD whose medical fast-lane cruise takes a small-town detour. Grady, South Carolina, Squash Capital of the South, is home to salt-of-the-earth folks (Julie Warner, Woody Harrelson, Bridget Fonda, David Ogden Stiers, Barnard Hughes) who give the West Coast-bound hotshot the seasoning he lacks. Doc Hollywood is a surefire prescription for comedy cheer!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Doc Hollywood isn't particularly graceful in its attempt to put a '90s spin on its Capraesque formula, but a light touch and a charming cast make its flaws easy to forgive.

Dated '90s comedy has nudity, some language.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Doc Hollywood from 1998 features Michael J. Fox as a hotshot, know-it-all young doctor waylaid by an accident on his cross-country drive to a job with a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. Sentenced to perform community service at a small town's hospital, he disdains the good values and the narrowness he observes during his stay. This changes when he meets the girl of his dreams, who has no desire to move to the big city. A woman's breasts are seen, and a man and woman run around the woods urinating to scare away deer. Kissing is shown. Adults drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes. A man says he wants to get an attractive woman drunk, implying she might have sex with him then. A close-up is shown of a finger with a fishing hook stuck in it. There's one utterance of "f--k" as well as other cursing, including "s--t," "hell," "damn," and "ass."
