Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Robin Williams , I thought I should give it a shot. Indeed, Robin Williams can be a funny actor and sometimes, he can be great in dramatic parts as well (Actually, I think he is even better in thrillers like ‘One Hour Photo’ or ‘Insomnia’ but never mind…). Unfortunately, quite often, he can be downright ... read more

We definitely need a few more doctors and nurses like Patch around the world. I absolutely adore this movie and it's cast. The message is sends to viewers sticks with them for a very long time. It just makes you wish there were more hospitals like this :]

Based on a true story, the movie Patch Adams is a remarkable movie touching almost all emotions defined. The movie is an adaptation from a book, an inspiring drama, comedy and a true story of a Virginia medical student, who breaks the shackles and stereotype in medical practice.

Patch Adams is an inspiring drama based on the book "Gesundheit: Good Health is a Laughing Matter" by Hunter Doherty Adams with Maureen Mylander. It presents the true story of a Virginia medical student who breaks all the rules by daring to proclaim that the best medicine for patients is listening, love, compassion, laughter, and play. This exuberant and enthusiastic character, more than any other screen hero in 1998, demonstrates the spiritual practice of zeal — being aroused by life.
Release date: 25 December 1998

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: August (45 movies items)

"August 16 "You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you'll win, no matter what the outcome." While this movie is undeniably flawed, it still has things to like about it. Robin Williams was perfectly casted for the leading role, it had a lot of funny jokes and the drama in this movie worked. It's far from perfect, but it's still enjoyable."

The Most Insulting Movie Moments (13 movies items)

"This movie is a supposed biopic of Hunter "Patch" Adams in his days in medical school. Now what is insulting about this film is the portrayal of Patch Adams. In this film, he portrayed nothing more than a student who doesn't study and just clowns around during his studies, while the people around him, both teachers and fellow classmates, try to their job. And this include, clowning around when other students are trying to take a test, stealing supplies from one hospital for another hospital Patc"

Robin Williams playing the role of Patch Adam rendered a classic performance. Punch line of his cause was that the doctors should not be indifferent, rather "A doctor's mission should be not just to prevent death but also to improve the quality of life of patients."
