Movie Summary

Howard Deutch
Released:
1992
Rating:
R

Article 99 the movie takes place in a Veterans' Administration hospital where "Article 99", a new regulation, promises to provide full medical benefits to veterans. In reality, this article actually has a hidden clause that does not allow patients to receive full care. When Dr. Richard Sturgess (Ray Liotta), a surgeon at the hospital sees how the hospital administration is foregoing patient care in favor of saving a few dollars, he and a team of like-minded and irreverent doctors decide to do everything they can for their patients. The physicians and patients feel as if they are on the defense. Dr. Henry Dreyfoos (John Mahoney), Dr. Sid Handleman (Forest Whitaker) and Dr. Peter Morgan (Kiefer Sutherland) work with Dr. Sturgess to find ways to get around the new regulations. Sturgess also begins a romance with caring hospital psychiatrist Dr. Robin Van Dorn (Lea Thompson). This 1992 dramedy was directed by Howard Deutch and the tagline for the movie summarizes the stand the doctors take: "When your hospital is a war zone, you have to fight to save lives."
