Jim Turner is on the movie poster for Dr. Brinks & Dr. Brinks, so you might expect to see him in it.
Jim plays Doctor Brinks, a humanitarian who dies before the movie begins, in a plane crash with his humanitarian wife, also Doctor Brinks. The film opens at the funeral. Their long separated children are total shits. Raucous hilarity ensues.
Jim is briefly in a flashback sequence.
As of today you can stream Dr. Brinks & Dr. Brinks via a whole bunch of streaming services, including YouTube, Amazon, and Apple. Read the rest
