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.

"Robin Williams plays one of of the most sanctimonious, obnoxious and morally bankrupt main leads ever. It's unforgivably sappy, and doesn't really offer any insight whatsoever on the real beliefs of the real Hunter Adams."

Nostalgia Critic's closing thoughts (45 movies items)

"People, this movie is disgusting. If you want to talk about the benefits of emotional interaction with your patients, fine. If you want to talk about new forms of practicing medicine and treating people, fine. But, DO IT AS A F*CKING ADULT! Not this childish, poorly written, non-factual bullsh*t! You know what you do? You know what? Don't watch the fictional, bad Patch Adams! Watch the real, factual Patch Adams. I've looked him up. His work is fascinating, and it goes beyond simply jumping aroun"

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."
