A Cut Above Review

Image for A Cut Above

An independent, freewheeling med student enrolls in the toughest course in the curriculum - Gross Anatomy - but struggles to keep his focus.

Symptoms : Mutation of The Paper Chase in which five first-year med students (principally Matthew Modine and Daphne Zuniga) dissect corpses, cram, have pizza and sex in between. Christine Lahti is the tough-but-kindly chief medico and the wise patient. Health warning: The distributors misdiagnose this as a comedy of med school life, birth, death, hanky panky and the horror in “E. R”, but exposure proves debilitating.

Crappy genre-mish mash.
