Doc Hollywood is a 1991 comedy film based on the book "What? Dead again?" by Neil Shulman M.D.
Doc Hollywood stars Michael J. Fox as Benjamin Stone, a hotshot young doctor, whose cross-country drive to become a Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon is interrupted when he crashes in the rural hamlet of Grady, South Carolina, and penalised to serve 32 hours of community service at the local hospital.
Since their idiosyncratic local physician is retiring, Dr. Stone is urged by the folksy locals to stay - an offer made tempting by his romance with Vilula, a law student.
Tagline: He's a big city plastic surgeon...in a small town that doen't take plastic.
