The main problem that we have with Nurse 3-D, is Paz de la Huerta. She's an awful actress, and if it weren't for the fact that she has a killer body (and a complete willingness to constantly get naked on-screen to show it off), we can't imagine her having much of a career at all.
She's just always rubbed us the wrong way, and her "acting" has always left us cold. We're really not trying to be dicks here, that's just how we feel.
For all we know, Paz de la Huerta is a really cool girl who just likes to do her own thing, and march to the beat of her own special drummer, and God bless her on that front. If she has the power and opportunity to rock on, then by all means, rock on.
With all of that being said, we went into Nurse 3-D with an open mind, hoping that it would be a fun, exploitation-filled hour and a half. For the most part, that's exactly what it is.
|What kind of Hospital allows this level of nudity?|
|But its men that are all creepy, sex-driven pigs, right?|
|"Like, who's going to mentor me now? OMG!"|
|Jack Osbourne was awesome in this movie.|
Maybe if Paz de la Huerta could act, the movie would have worked a lot better for us. She tries her hardest to pull of a character that is as crazy as she is seductive, but she just doesn't have the chops for it. Towards the end of the movie, we cringed when her enraged character screamed "Danniiiiiiii!" It was like watching a really horrible singer crash and burn during an American Idol Audition.
|Dial back on the crazy, Paz.|
The rest of the cast is a mixed bag: Katrina Bowden is cute as a kitten in this one as she always is, but she's not winning any acting awards either. We love her in many ways, but watching her trying to share the acting load with Paz was just painful at times. she's good, but she's just not great. Judd Nelson hasn't really been good in anything since maybe Airheads (1994), has he? Same goes for Kathleen Turner.

Nurse 3-D is also a really gory movie. Sure, a lot of the movie's blood flow is CGI, but it still looks great in most places. As a bloody spectacle, this movie is aces.
We'd recommend you wait until this one hits Netflix before giving it a go, unless you think it would be right up your alley and are really dying to see it, in which case, just give it a rent on VOD.
Depending on which way we look at it, this movie is either a D+ or a C-, so we'll just go ahead and call it both.
Nurse 3-D, because if nothing else, it was at least a visually pleasing experience.
