Flatliners - Burn Unit, Stat!
OK, when Julia Roberts' character "dies" and is brought back,she is STILL wearing her bra when the defibrillator (the electric shock thingie) is used on her. This would NEVER happen, and if it did, she would be in a world of hurt after the electric charge caused any metal clips or fasteners on her bra to sear into her flesh, branding her for life, if not worse. Any med student knows this one's a big no-no.

Actually, not all bras have metal parts, some are entirely plastic

It doesn't matter if the patient's bra is lacy cotton, plastic, lizard skin or stainless steel, and it doesn't matter what it is wired up with: plastic or metal, makes no difference. Defibralator paddles go against the skin and nothing else. If a female patient was in cardiac emergency the cardiac team would just pull her bra right out of the way, or they'd cut it off; that's how it happens, all the time. (Fortunately) Julia Roberts has a "no-nudity" clause in all her contracts and she has the clout to make sure it is adhered to - and that's why they performed this absurd, impossible medical procedure on her.
