i liked this movie.it's about first year medical students and what they
go through.it focuses specifically on a small group of five in
particular.it's a drama more than anything.the first half of the movie
is pretty light in tone,but the second half is much more serious in
tone.this is a very much a character and story driven movie and it
succeeds,in my mind,at least mostly.the acting is pretty good.Matthew
Modine, Daphne Zuniga and Christine are the main actors.all are likable
characters,in their own way.overall, well written,well acted movie.not
great,but pretty good.for me,"Gross Anatomy" is a 3.5/5

The only people I know who've even heard of this movie are med students and aspiring med students. I'll be starting medical school in a few months, myself, so I can't say that I'm any different. That's what initially drew me to the movie, and maybe that's the reason why I liked it.
This movie has Matthew Modine playing a first year medical student named Joe Slovak. He's the antithesis of everything that a stereotypical med student is perceived to be. He's laid back, worldly, handsome, and not especially self-serving. At first I thought his character would be in the style of Robin Williams in "Patch Adams", where he'd end up being the rebel who believed that medicine lacked humanity and would lead a crusade to somehow change things for the better. However, he doesn't really seem to care about people enough to make such a change. While this apathetic lack of motivation might be realistic, it certainly doesn't make for a colorful character in a movie. He is surrounded by four other med students who, as any movie about medical school would require, are all driven to excel and are vilified as a result. The movie tells how these five people worked together to get through their first year in school. All the typical elements are here: cut-throat competitiveness, jealousy, elitism, ways of dealing with stress, and of course, the obligatory subplot involving the budding romance between two lab partners.
If you're thinking about going to medical school, don't use this movie to decide whether it's a good idea. It won't sway your opinion in any particular direction. However, aside from the way in which the characters are skewed, this movie will give you a good idea of what medical school might be like. Though, if you're just looking for a movie to provide you with entertainment, this isn't what you want. Go watch "Patch Adams" instead. It's of the same genre, and it's better. Unless you're medically inclined, I don't recommend this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Special Features Dec 7 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
If you read all the reviews of this film below based on the VHS version, you'll see it is one of the more enjoyable films of the late 1980s. Everything said about it is correct, and I stand by the praise I gave it as well.
I just wanted to alert viewers of the DVD, however, that there are NO special features. It's a bit odd for a DVD not to have any, but that explains why this is is so inexpensive.
Of course, the nice thing is, it's widescreen, so you can see the full picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best med movie ever! May 29 2003
Format:DVD
For my opinion the year of 1989 it has been one of the most exciting years in the history of cinema. Three movies from this particular year changed my life. First Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, second Dead Poets Society and third is Gross Anatomy. the last one i saw it the first time in TV but i loved it right away. This movie mixtures two of my favorite items. Colleges and relationships. It has believable and true characters and most of all it has Daphne Zunigha. Its directory it is honest and modest but above all some melancholy corresses the story. I think the character Matthew Modine plays is a genious who he dosen't know he is genious. I loved it and i am waiting for the european edition of the movie because i cant buy it yet.
Dont miss it either youare med student or not...

5.0 out of 5 stars This film is actually outstanding! June 10 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
While "Batman" may have pulverized "Gross Anatomy" at the box office in the summer of 1989, this film is worth seeing and owning. This is one of those films where you watch a character evolve in front of your eyes. You watch Matthew Modine's character grow up in the film. As he goes from being a careless flunky who barely made his way through a less than top notch school, you see, as Christine Lahti does, that he has something. And she makes him believe it. And finally, in an emotional scene in a diner and an even more emotional scene in a classroom before final exams, you realize he has. A great film that you can identify with if you've ever known someone who seemed to have so much going for him, but seemed to just want to play the clown all the time. A beautiful film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming Aug. 10 2002
By A. Eby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
"Gross Anatomy" is a predictable, but heartwarming, little film about five eager first-year medical students. I appreciated the occasionally goofy medical humor and the fine performances from all the actors, notably Christine Lahti, as a rigidly serious, if ultimately well-intentioned anatomy instructor This film has been sadly overlooked for years; it deserves more than a passing glance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not enough praise for Gross Anatomy Aug. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
In my opinion, this movie never received the recognition that it deserved. As a medical student hopeful, I was drawn in by the medical school backdrop of the film. Aside from that,I also feel that the movie's use of drama, romance, and comedy in the main characters' struggle to discover things about themselves and each other was superb. Although largely underrated, this remains one of my favorites.

3.0 out of 5 stars DECENT EFFORT BY MODINE. HARD TO DEFINE GENRE OF THIS FILM. Aug. 8 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
I found this title in the comedy section at the video store. It is more of a romantic drama with comedic elements. Modine excells at the sensitive smart-aleck role found in "Gross Anatomy," a la "Vision Quest." He plays a cocky med student, with his own way of doing things, thus ruffling the feathers of the more conservative characters he meets. Along the way, he falls in love with Daphne Zuniga's character who don't immediately mesh. Film langours at parts where Modine and Dr. Woodruff argue. However, interplay between Modine and Zuniga is great. Worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the most underrated film of all time. Aug. 12 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
I am always disturbed to see the lack of recognition which "Gross Anatomy" has suffered. It is in my opinion one of the best films ever produced. The humour is good, but more significant is the character development which is so perceptive and subtle. It is certainly worth seeing, unfortunately it appears to be unavailable.
