      Audience Member The funniest medical comedy ever, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member martin.hillstad@mail.cm Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review ashley h Doctor at Large is an okay film. It is about Dr. Sparrow who graduates and sets out into the world. Dirk Bogarde and James Robertson James give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Ralph Thomas did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the humor. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The third in the Doctor comedies is back to it's best following the rather poor second instalment. Good harmless fun. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member #3 in the 'doctor series' Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Such a supprise!
