Have you seen the one about … DOCTORS

Doctors mean hospitals and hospitals mean surgeries. Those can be stressful and kinda gross which doesn’t necessarily make for the best entertainment. That being said, some movies do get it right. Here are some good medical movies and the best cinematical docs.

Doc Holiday (Val Kilmer) from “Tombstone”
If I’m ever in a shoot-out in the old west there is no man I’d rather have next to me than this charismatic¬† gunslinger.

Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) from “Back to the Future”
1.21 gigawatts! The inventor of the flux capacitor may be the most brilliant man alive.

Dr.Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) from “Captain America”
He is responsible for creating the world’s first super hero. Plus Stanley Tucci can do no wrong in my book.

Miracle Max (Billy Crystal) from “The Princess Bride”
Prince Humperdink may have fired him, and he may not be a real “doctor,” and his wife may be a witch, but he brought Wesley back to life so he could save his Buttercup. I’d trust him.

Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) from “Silence of the Lambs
This one I may not trust so much, unless it’s for a good wine recommendation to go with my liver and fava beans.

Dr. Leo Marvin (Richard Dreyfuss) from “What About Bob?
He may have a slight anger management problem but he cured Bob Wiley. Now that’s impressive.

Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) from “Rocky Horror Picture Show”
He can sing, he can dance, and he looks damn good in a pair of fishnets!

Doctors Spengler, Stantz, Venkman (Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray) from “Ghostbusters”
Three brilliant minds all coming together to rid Manhattan of ghosts and ugly slime-balls.

Stu Price (Ed Helms) from “The Hangover”
True, he’s not a doctor, only a dentist, but he pulled out his own tooth. That’s … something … right?

Dr. Evil (Mike Meyers) from “Austin Powers”
Somebody didn’t get hugged enough as a child. But he has a fascination with sharks and laser beams that I can respect.
Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) from “Jurassic Park”
I’m not entirely sure how a mathematician could help me survive an island of recreated dinos but it’s better than being stuck with that lawyer dude.

Carlisle Cullen (Peter Facinelli) from “Twilight”
This guy can live forever so when it comes to medical advice, I’d listen to him.
