''Young Doctors in Love'' is a 1982 ScrewballComedy directed by Creator/GarryMarshall. Essentially ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' [-[[RecycledInSpace IN A HOSPITAL]]-], the film is largely a parody of medical dramas and soap operas; what the Zucker-Abrhams-Zucker team did to airport dramas, this film does to ''Series/GeneralHospital''.

It tells the story of [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits a group of doctors]] fresh out of school working in a rather [[PuttingTheMedicInComedic chaotic hospital]]. Several common plots of medical soap operas are present: multiple sets of lovebirds, Mafia patients, doctors abusing drugs, the hospital facing bankrupcy, protagonist's LoveInterest being terminally ill, as well as unconnected plotlines which last anywhere from the whole movie to a few seconds, with a few {{running gag}}s (namely, a bed that refuses to be fixed) for good measure. Think one really long episode of a long-running drama [[PlayedForLaughs turned on it's head]] and where everything is resolved in 90 minutes.

''Young Doctors in Love'' is a 1982 comedy about [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits a group of doctors]] fresh out of school working in a rather [[PuttingTheMedicInComedic chaotic hospital]]. The film parodies typical medical dramas, especially soap operas like ''Series/GeneralHospital'' (in its early years) and does it quite well. Though it failed to do what ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' did for disaster movies. Some critics blame recycling of old medical jokes.

The film unsubtly uses some of the common plots of medical soap operas: several sets of lovebirds, Mafia patients, doctors abusing drugs, the hospital facing bankrupcy, protagonist's LoveInterest being terminally ill... There are several unconnected plotlines, some get a lot of screen time, others just appear for a few seconds several times, like the bed that refuses to be fixed. All in all, it feels like an episode of a long-running series, only everything is PlayedForLaughs and gets resolved within 90 minutes.

Directed by Creator/GarryMarshall, who later would direct such films as ''Film/{{Overboard}}'' and ''Film/PrettyWoman''. The cast includes Michael [=McKean=], Creator/SeanYoung, Hector Elizondo, Creator/HarryDeanStanton, Patrick Macnee, and Dabney Coleman. Also includes very early appearances by Creator/DemiMoore and ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''[='=]s Michael Richards.
