Storyline

A group of doctors in a veteran's hospital must contend with their hopeless situation: too many patients and not enough beds. The main cause of their problems is bureaucratic belt-tightening by the hospital administrators. The doctors are determined to give the best service they can, even if that means defying the orders of management and performing unauthorized operations. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

Apparently Ray Liotta, as one of the "good guys" felt that he should dislike the actor playing a "bad guy", John Mahoney, both on and off the set; when he saw Mahoney in wardrobe or makeup, he would either rush out of the room or immediately end all attempts at conversation. At the end of the shoot, Liotta smilingly approached Mahoney and told him it was a pleasure to work with him, to which Mahoney replied, "I wish I could say the same." See more »

When truth is stranger than fiction . . .
22 June 2001 | by VernonPopeSee all my reviews

the greatest casualty may be due to Red Tape. Not only does this film benefit from some true TALENT in the acting department, but Howard Deutch does a great job of portraying the sad state of Veteran's Care in the US. No, this does not appear to be "based on a true story," but it is typical of what goes on in the VA Hospitals; as a former Army Medic (now a Service Connected Disabled Vet) I know whereof I speak. I highly recommend this film!
