Paddy Chayefsky's black comedy about the head of a hospital facing disasters all round him while he undergoes a bout of personal depression. It starts off with some marvellously cruel moments, and Scott's performance towers over the proceedings throughout. But Hiller's direction is pretty shoddy, while the script eventually loses its way and begins to look increasingly hysterical, at the same time shamelessly trivialising Scott's crisis (sex cures all ills).
