Even Obama Would Be Ashamed at this Lame Look at Health Care
13 February 2015 | by danew13See all my reviews

The most amazing thing about this nonsensical and terribly conceived film is how an actor who in the same year can play a riveting character in NightCrawler can sign on for this rubbish.

Other than seeing how well endowed Jessica Biel is, I can't think of many better moments. This is nothing more than a low grade TV movie based on an absurd premise...that a woman seriously injured in a restaurant by an employee would not have any medical care provided by the restaurant or any legal recourse.

From there the plot only gets worse in what evolves into a propaganda film promoting US health care legislation. While I support such legislation, I refute this film entirely. It's not a rom-com since it's not romantic or comic. The writing is juvenile in the extreme. The only guy with any decent lines was the versatile James Marsden.
