INTERN ACADEMY MOVIE POSTER INTERN ACADEMY, 2004
Movie Reviews

Directed by Dave Thomas
Starring: Dave Foley, Dan Aykroyd, Peter Oldring, Pat Kelly, Viv Leacock, Maury Chaykin, Saul Rubinek, Christine Chatelain
Review by Brian Last



SYNOPSIS:

This film follows a group of young interns trying to learn at St. Albert's teaching hospital, one of the worst in the country. They are out of the classroom and are now dealing with life or death situations. On top of that pressure they have to worry about an administrator wh sells off all the good equipment to make the payroll, their grades, their senior teaching staff who only look down on the young pups, and their fellow interns who they need to be friends with to be able to get through the year in one piece.

The Interns are a colourful and interesting bunch, they each bring something different to the table that makes it all work well. Mike is the bumbling nervous intern who is pushed into medicine by his parents who are respected doctors. Dale has more than adequate skills but he is more about meeting women. Marlon is good for an intern, he knows the book but he takes his medical approach to more of a "street" mentality. Mira is the type who wants to prove something to men which is why she is gunning for a job in surgery that is dominated solely by men. Christine is the stereotypical Asian overachiever who just needs to loosen up. Mitzi is loose enough, she quickly develops a reputation and always tries not to get in those kinds of situations. Along the way they are guided by two nurses Cynthia and Sarah who help them through their first year.

REVIEW:

I really enjoyed this movie, it is a good Canadian film and a shot in the arm to our industry, the film is mostly all Canadian cast and crew. What fell short for this film was the promotions and the release. I saw one making of special on television and one trailer in theaters. It did not get a wide enough release, which happens a lot in this country. It will get released in a couple of major cities like Toronto, Vancouver, and perhaps Edmonton or Calgary, but they never reach the whole country coast to coast. It Seems unless itís the trailer park boys or a Paul Gross film they donít do a good job of promoting their films.

The budget for this film was very modest and the return was the same. In this country 20 million is our highest budgeted movie with Passchendale. In the U.S. that is a joke, they pat themselves on the back for making a $20 million movie and calling it ďindieĒ. Canadians have to support their local pictures, and in time producers will return the favor and dole out higher budgets. Somethingís have to be done for Canadian Cinema to be taken seriously in other parts of the world, we canít rely on hipsters like Quentin Tarintino to jump on a film and bring it down south of the border like he did for hard core logo, which was already a known film here.

This film also rings true about the medical crisis in Canada and the U.S. In Canada Doctorís and Nurses often leave for greener pastures because of the cap that is placed on them in terms of money that can be made. Of course disease should be public enemy number one but you spend a decade plus in school you would like to see some quick returns. This causes less staff to me able to take care of the patients which causes 5-10 hours waiting in emergency rooms, and waiting almost a year to see specialists or surgeries. Funding is also an issue that often causes in cutting down on resources and equipment which inhibits the staffs ability to treat.

It is a great melding of three legendary comedy groups ( SCTV, Saturday Night Live 7 Kids in the Hall). Although Thomas' comedy is a bit dry , Foley's comedy is very sarcastic and out there, they make it work. I thought the script was written well with some good one liners. Just for good measure Thomas threw in some hilarious slapstick moments and sight gags. Although the slapstick moments derive from medical blunders it isn't too far out of the realm of possibility. I found this film very funny, the cast was very likable and a joy to watch. They all worked well off each other and had good chemistry. I also thought it was paced well, where shows like Scrubs had 22-24 episodes to flush out a whole year of medicine and develop a character, Thomas did it in 90 minutes. He didn't dwell on any one point he picked a few of developing moments and spaced them out accordingly. My only complaint was I wish it was longer, more gags and more time with these characters. It is a very good film that I would recommend. Like a Police Academy, I felt this film had potential to be a cult comedy, just needs more following.
