Someone had another Hospital in mind, and they even hired Arthur Hiller to direct it, but the attempt to merge black humor and strident social commentary seems even more uncertain this time. The characters have all been invented for strictly didactic purposes: they come on waving their moral conflicts like big white bed sheets, and as soon as you see them you can predict every trite turn of the plot. Since it's impossible to believe in any of these crude, mechanical figures, the film's final exhortation of compassionate, flexible humanity in the face of a cold, rigid system has a distinctly hollow ring. With Nick Nolte, JoBeth Williams, Judd Hirsch, Ralph Macchio, Allen Garfield, Lee Grant, and Richard Mulligan.
