"This is a surprisingly funny and engaging movie about two patients in a hospital. The humor is often dark and/or sophisticated. "The Medicine Show" is a little uneven in quality, but Natasha Gregson Wagner is captivating as Lynn Piegi, an interesting, quirky, amazingly up-beat gal. Jonathan Silverman's portrayal of the other patient, Taylor Darcy, is much lower key, but serves as an effective foil for Lynn. More broadly, this movie is an interesting and insightful study of the sociology of life, romance, the threat of death and dying, and the challenges of being a family member and of being a hospital patient.
"The Medicine Show" might function better without the tacky sexual humor at its beginning. Consider starting at Chapter 5 on the DVD."
