    Plot: Plagued by uninsured patients, greedy insurance companies, heartless health care conglomerates, and stressed out doctors, the health care delivery system is on the verge of a total breakdown – and Jake Gorman couldn't be happier. The egomaniacal medical malpractice attorney has it all. His face adorns billboards, his ads run constantly on TV and radio, while his army of informants tip him off to profitable new cases. Suing doctors has made Jake a famous and very wealthy man. Jake never met a doctor he couldn't sue, until now. As a cost cutting measure at its hospitals, R.I.P Healthcare has developed the perfect doctor. MD 63 (a.k.a. Robo-Doc) is a robotic doctor whose data bank contains all the medical knowledge in the world, and therefore Robo-Doc CAN'T make a mistake. Robo-Doc was designed to save both money and lives. Success would bring flawless, affordable health care to all and spell ruin for Jake Gorman.

    Movie Quotes: Prior: See, the bright light… it ain't heaven, son. It's just a muzzle flare.


    Crazy Credits: We know about 4 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    Personal Slave to Tim Swartz and Tim Beckley: Jan Dobbs

    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Factual errors: While not a major error, the SS soldiers featured in the movie did not wear the camouflage smocks characteristic of the Waffen-SS. If they were combat veterans, rather than Allgemeiner/death camp guards (general Occupation security) troops, they should have worn camouflage smocks, camouflage covers for their helmets or full-camo uniforms in the later part of the war. Instead they were all clad in the generic grey SS uniforms, with SS 'sigrunen' collar patches, helmet insignia and long overcoats. The Second Battle Group, a Scotland-based '1st Division SS-LAH' Waffen-SS reenactment group (which was featured in 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Steel Tempest') could have provided the necessary camouflage clothing, but I suspect the filmmakers deliberately went for the stereotyped 'evil SS troops in overcoats' to enhance the eerie and ghostly atmosphere of the bunker and its doomed trespassers.
