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.

The Most Insulting Movie Moments (12 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"

“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.

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."

Concluding the film Following information given to the viewers:

"During the next twelve years, Patch Adams opened a home-based family medical practice and treated more than 15,000 people without payment, malpractice insuran” read more

Most Extreme Movie Performances (56 movies items)

"Not just extremely annoying, but also extremely well-researched, as it happens. Robin Williams helped prepare for his role by spending months performing as a clown for sick children. We almost feel guilty we hate the movie."

50 Biggest Lies In Biopic History (50 movies items)

" The Untruth: Robin Williams plays Patch Adams a sweet and funny medical student who believes laughter is the best medicine. The Truth: Hunter ‘Patch’ Adams hated the film. Saying it made him look like nothing more than a funny doctor. Williams’s fans were also disappointed and have been unhappy with his career ever since."
