The first time I watched this movie, it was truly wonderful and has been every time I've watched it since. "Patch Adams" delivers a powerful message of how to just be silly and break the rules when it's in the best interest of everyone around. He knew in his heart that all the patients needed to laugh. Laughter is after all the best medicine anyone could ask for. But Patch knew how to be serious and when to be. How he treated all the other students, faculty, nurses, and patients truly inspired more than just me, but many people I know. His way of life is one that I recommend <more>
for anyone.Robin Williams give a 5-star performance in Patch Adams. He is a genius in creativity and comedy, but knows how to bring every aspect of a person's life out on the screen. I know that he is just playing the role, but he wraps you entirely into a movie and makes it seem like he is the man.I recommend this movie to all...young and old. It's a winner forever in my heart.
My husband and I loved this film. We laughed, cried and felt warm and fuzzy all over! Very well made film. Robin, as always did a great job with his part. His co-actor/actress were very good too. The movie made us a part of what was going on. I want a doctor just like Patch. To bad there aren't more doctors like that.
Perfect (by nassty_hobbitses9)
I can think of absolutely NOTHING bad to say about this movie; and believe me, for me, that is RARE. As Patch, the ex-psychiatric-turned-brilliant-med-student, Robin Williams has displayed that he has talents that go far beyond the goof prancing around in drag. He adds the perfect blend of humour, drama, and real feeling to the picture- which I suppose some cynisists would call "hamminess" or "corniness", neither of which I see in this film. I do not know the story of the true Patch Adams, so I cannot comment on its historical accuracy, but as just a film in and of itself, <more>
I say it's wonderful. The script is neither over-done nor left to rot, but seems to hit the perfect note of helping the actors but not attempting to do the acting for them. Monica Potter was excellent as the defensive, book-worm, hesitant girl-friend who half-reluctantly helps Patch with his unethical schemes. She also brings a note of tragedy to the film- which I will say nothing more about ; For cinematography and music, this film is fairly straight-forward, but it was pretty well unnecessary in this case. All around- although I hate to use the VERY old cliché- it made me laugh and cry.
Not-That-Sugary Look At A Good-Hearted Man (by ccthemovieman-1)
There are a lot of sugary clichés I use - in a nice way - to describe this story about a doctor with a good heart who truly believes in the healing power of laughter. Based on a real-life person who looks a lot wackier than Robin Williams, who plays him in this movie , the story has its usual rebel fights-the- straight-laced-establishment cliché but is a warm, sentimental film that can't help but make you feel really good when it's all over. It's hardly all sugar, either, as there are not only frustrations but an immensely-shocking tragedy in here.For a nice "family" <more>
movie, the profanity and sexual innuendos are a little much, so I don't think is one for the kids. They wouldn't like it anyway. Adults shouldn't mind. The language isn't that bad, anyway."Patch's" remedy for not only sickness but to get-the-girl is humor. It takes him awhile but he softens the hard-shell woman he's after Monica Potter and even the super stiff-ass roommate Philip Seymour Hoffman in the end. This film is tailor-made for Williams and his great sense of humor and ability to ad-lib. He has a lot of funny lines in here.There is one little kid in here who's smile is one of the best I've ever seen on a human being, and I wish the boy had more scenes. The touches of sentimentality he brings, along with the laughter, is wonderful to see and heart- warming, to say the least. This is an inspiring story with comedy and romance and drama. That's what makes it so effective: a good combination of genres. One minute you're laughing, a few minutes later you have tears in your eyes. A wonderful story, nicely acted and nicely told.
Great film! Just a hair off center, but still well in the bullseye. (by StephenC)
During a family day at the movies over Christmas weekend, most of my family picked "You've Got Mail". But I pretty much detest romantic comedies, so I picked "Patch Adams" instead. How much did I like it? I went and saw it again the next day, dragging the whole family with me this time.Don't let the previews fool you: this is not a comedy. This is a very moving drama based on the real life of Hunter "Patch" Adams and his trials on the road to becoming a doctor and attempting to revolutionize the health care industry by creating a free hospital in West <more>
Virginia which has come to pass and is presently being constructed, or so the overlayed tagline at the end of the movie claims .Williams delivers a stellar performance as Patch, who practices "Laughter Is The Best Medicine" and entertains and amuses hospital patients in an effort to befriend them and ease their pain. So as you can imagine, Williams' clownish personality and humor seep in and bring an incredible vibrance to the character. His performance alone is worth your ticket, but the supporting actors Philip Hoffman and newcomers Daniel London and Monica Potter also deliver great performances and add a lot to the story. The plot is well done being partially written by Adams and the story may inspire you.My only major complaint about the movie and why I say it's a hair off center is the very stereotypical and uber-evil portrayal of the dean of the medical school, who has a vendetta against Adams but for which a real reason is never given. This could be attributed to Adams' hand in the scripting, but I doubt it. Beyond that, this movie is very enjoyable, very touching, and very award-worthy. If it doesn't show up at least a couple times at the Oscars I'll be very disappointed. But just go see it for yourself. And if you don't cry at least once before the end, be worried; there is probably something wrong with you.If you enjoy the movie, you may also want to check out the book by the real Patch Adams, entitled "Gesundheit!: Bringing Good Health to You, the Medical System, and Society Through Physician Service, Complementary Therapies, Humor, and Joy". Amazon.com carries it as should any other reputable bookseller .
A Sad Parallel to Robin Williams Life (by Hollywood_Yoda)
Looking back on Patch Adams, it's easy to see the parallels between the story on film and Robin Williams' life. It's about a man having a mental breakdown, and only wants to help others and make them happy. Truth is though, you can't forget about your own happiness, because like Robin, you'll feel all alone.Williams gives one of his best performances as Hunter "Patch" Adams, and I'm surprised he didn't win any awards. The cast was pretty good too, a lot of famous faces. However, it's not one of the best roles of Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was good to <more>
see Josef Sommer and Harve Presnell in positive roles. Bob Gunton played a real jerk though, which I guess he's good at since he played the warden in The Shawshank Redemption.It's hard to watch the film though, seeing all the faces that have died, some naturally and some by drug overdose and suicide. It is a great comedy, but it makes it hard to laugh.
I think that the critics missed an important aspect of this movie, as did many viewers who have commented before me. Too many have claimed that this movie was a drama full of comedy, or a drama that was trying to be funny. Whether the critics think it achieved that goal or not, they missed an important point. The point is that Drama and Comedy are not two seperate things to be combined. A movie shouldn't have to combine the two. The two things are already combined. This movie attempted to show that there is comedy and laughter inherent in the drama of our everyday life. If we can find it, <more>
it can help us through the drama. This is the reason we cry when we are happy and we cry when we are sad. All emotions are part of something bigger and they are more similar than we think. I think that's part of what Patch Adams is trying to say.
Perhaps Williams finest effort to date. I laughed till my sides ached, and maybe even shed a tear or 2, but I won't admit to actually doing so. Liked that big shock the film produced a little over half way through - totally unexpected. If I had a problem at all with this picture, it would be that it is a tad pat, but I still thought it was excellent. Highly recommended.
Laugh away your ills. (by Spikeopath)
Patch Adams is based around the true life story of Hunter Adams, a very interesting man, who, after becoming suicidal and committing himself to a mental hospital, found a new lease of life and wanted to help people. Enrolling at medical school to become a doctor, Hunter became a flag waver for the "laughter is the best form of medicine" train of thought. Something that simultaneously irked his superiors and garnered a lot of patient support. A fascinating tale is given the Hollywood treatment with Robin Williams slotting into the role of Hunter Adams.Not only is Patch Adams a <more>
fascinating story in itself, the reaction to it, pro & con, is also of high interest. I first ventured into this film a couple of years ago, believing it to be the devil's spawn. That belief was born out of the disdain brought down on it from the revered critics of the time. It's also suffered kicks a plenty from many a film fan during the advent of internet movie sites and the snowball effect that comes with such communities. I revisited the film just this last week to see if my initial positive reaction to the film still held. It did. What I found out was something I never knew the first time that I watched the film, namely it was well regarded enough to be nominated for awards. And not some by the bye magazine awards either. Williams was nominated for best actor at the American Comedy Awards and the Golden Globes, while the film itself was nominated at "The Globes" in the best picture category. It should also be noted that the film was a success at the box office. Made for $90 million, it's Worldwide gross in theatres was $203 million, and it was the number one box office film in America at Christmas 1998.Why do I tell you these facts? I do so because sometimes the reputation of a film is distorted, such is the case with Patch Adams. Look, It's not a masterpiece or anything, it's an odd mixture of humour and drama and for Williams haters it's a definite no no. But it still has something for the discerning viewer. It's a film that is loaded in the protagonists favour, I mean who in their right mind could not side with the guy who makes the kiddies on the cancer ward laugh and cheer? Exactly. Things are further loaded by the portrayal of Dean Walcott by Bob Gunton, it's all snarling pomposity of the highest order, the suit you just love to hate. Then coming in from the side is Philip Seymour Hoffman as jealous swot room-mate, Mitch. Make no bones about it, the makers here are telling Hunter Adams' story; thus the other side of the fence is barely given any credence or intelligent debate. That's an itch that will not go away, but it barely stops Patch Adams being an emotionally driven, and potent, viewing experience.If you have not seen it then you now have the facts to hand, it wasn't a bomb, the kind of lead balloon release that some would have you believe it was. It's divisive for sure, and, yes, it has problems that "us" fans are fully aware of. But maybe you will become a fan too? Williams is on full tilt animation mode, able to make one laugh and make one cry all in the confines of one little movie. And the ending, coming after the roller-coaster has done its run on the emotional track, is itself a form of medicine that you just can't get from the chemist. 8/10
