    Year: 1989
    Director: Thom Eberhardt
    Summary:
    Matthew Modine (ANY GIVEN SUNDAY) stars as Joe Slovak, a brilliant first-year med student whose casual, nonconforming approach to life gets tested when he enrolls in gross anatomy, the toughest course in med school. Joe's freewheeling, independent style creates funny moments in the classroom, but puts him at odds with his demanding professor (Christina Lahti, HIDEAWAY), who questions whether her class "rebel" has what it takes to be a doctor. On top of that, Joe falls in love with his no-nonsense lab partner (Daphne Zuniga -- THE SURE THING, TV's MELROSE PLACE), who won't let anything, especially romance, interfere with her plans. And while Joe's never done anything by the book, he proves he does have what it takes to succeed -- without changing his ways!

    I watched this last night and found it pretty entertaining. It is formulaic and a little bit corny though.

    I can’t believe that Matthew Modine doesn’t have a picture at IMDB. He and Daphne Zuniga also starred in one of my favorite movies, Visionquest. This was one of those 80’s movies that I watched several times, but have since forgotten about.
