If you like the show Scrubs, and love Data from Star Trek the nextGeneration, you will love this movie. The movie is about a slimy lawyerwho sues every doctor for even the dumbest little reason. And getsfilthy rich doing so. The hospital is full of comedy. Ultimately thehospital needs a doc that never makes a mistake, so here comes robodocto the rescue! Can the slimy lawyer sue a doctor that never makes amistake? How do the human doctors and nurses take to the perfect doc?It's worth finding out how this plays out to the end. Lately I haven'twatched a movie all the way through, but this one was entertaining allthe way to the end.

I saw this film on TV and found that it is quite funny. But its ratinghere does not reflect what it deserves. So I want to say something forit.
In a humorous way, the acting and the story is acceptable. I did laughat some jokes. I cannot say the story is well crafted since there aresome flaws of less interesting/unnecessary plots. But overall isenjoyable to me.
If you look for some "serious" films, this one is absolutely not. Butif you want something for a relaxing afternoon, this is the one you maytry.

This could have been politically poignant and relevant, adding an extralayer of unique satire to the comedy. Instead, they totally missed themark. On both the satire AND the comedy. Most of the jokes fell flatand it just wasn't enough to make it to a passing grade. It's like abunch of has-beens are trying to make a movie, but they just couldn'tget their groove on. Alan Thicke was kind of wooden, Corin Nemic(Parker Lewis) didn't have much going on. David Faustino (Bud Bundy)was good, but his character wasn't funny. They literally got MichaelWinslow (Police Academy guy who makes funny sounds) and then only hadhim make one sound effect.
So the movie just ended up not living up to what it could have been. Onany level. This is bad even for a National Lampoon film!
Plagued by uninsured patients, greedy insurance companies, heartless health care conglomerates, and stressed out doctors, the health care delivery system is on the verge of a total breakdown - and Jake Gorman couldn't be happier. The egomaniacal medical malpractice attorney has it all. His face adorns billboards, his ads run constantly on TV and radio, while his army of informants tip him off to profitable new cases. Suing doctors has made Jake a famous and very wealthy man. Jake never met a doctor he couldn't sue, until now. As a cost cutting measure at its hospitals, R.I.P Healthcare has developed the perfect doctor. MD 63 (a.k.a. Robo-Doc) is a robotic doctor whose data bank contains all the medical knowledge in the world, and therefore Robo-Doc CAN'T make a mistake. Robo-Doc was designed to save both money and lives. Success would bring flawless, affordable health care to all and spell ruin for Jake Gorman.
