"Million Dollar" Medicine

Tuesday's Atlanta Journal-Constitution (registration required) ran a guest column from a local doctor about the award-winning Million Dollar Baby. In it, the good doctor does exactly for the movie what we're doing for comics here:

"Unfortunately, the medical premise of Million Dollar Baby is dead wrong..."

And fair warning: while I haven't yet seen the film, I believe this column deals heavily in spoilers. But it's interesting to see someone doing a similar factual critique of a movie, and a very lauded one at that.
