Nurse Betty

Too low to display

Nurse Betty explains how to use a cylinder of Max Dog nitrogen to achieve a peaceful, reliable and totally undetectable death. Max Dog cylinders provide 30 min of pure nitrogen at the optimum 15 litres/min and are robust (very long shelf-life) and refillable.

Playwright-turned-filmmaker Neil LaBute followed his first two incendiary movies (In the Company of Men and Your Friends and Neighbors) with this quirky black comedy that has its odd, surprising moments of sweetness. Nurse Betty (2000) stars Renée Zellweger as a spaced-out waitress who is obsessed with a soap opera actor (Greg Kinnear).

Reviews

"Nurse" Betty Sizemore (Renee Zellweger) from "Nurse Betty" (2000).

Despite NURSE BETTY’s unique storyline, this dark comedy contains strong violence, language and one scene of depicted sex. Winner of the Best Screenplay Award at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, NURSE BETTY’s maniacal plot is, surprisingly, nowhere near the absurdity and stupidity of DROWNING MONA, another black comedy. Most of the actors play highly familiar roles, with the exception of Morgan Freeman, whose character greatly contrasts from his previous ones. The pervasive foul language and strong violence greatly mar an otherwise funny movie with a unique storyline and talented actors. The heroine, Betty, has a sweet innocence that only adds to the laughs when the antagonists are in pursuit, resulting in some bizarre situations. The movie’s worldview embraces the character’s romantic, humanist attributes
