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 playing the role of Patch Adam rendered a classic performance. Punch line of his cause was t... read more

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.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" Based on a actual story, about an actual doctor, that used laughter as therapy for his patients, named Hunter Doherty "Patch" Adams. He wasn’t too thrilled about the film, and Robin Williams depiction of him, and his work. Despite negative reviews, the film made $202.3 million against a $50–90 million budget."

An excellent movie.

“Robin Williams is great, as usual. The story is touching and based on true events. I don’t know why so many people hated this movie when it came out. They remind me the people who tried to stop Patch on the movie Maybe they need a little more joy in their lives? ;) ” read more

"28.1. 2020 Patch Adams wants to be a doctor but the "evil" doctors don't like him because they consider his methods too unorthdox. That's the main idea of the film, and it's also the only idea. Everything in "Patch Adams" is so sugar-coated, sentimental, and ridiculously black and white that it's hard to believe that it wasn't meant to be a parody. Of course, it wouldn't be a good parody either because parodies are supposed to be funny, but at least then it wouldn't be quite as pretentious. "
