Plot Summary

Meet Patch Adams (Academy Award® winner, Robin Williams), a doctor who doesn't look, act or think like any doctor you've met before. For Patch, humor is the best medicine, and he's willing to do just about anything to make his patients laugh - even if it means risking his own career. Based on a true story, Patch Adams combines sidesplitting humor with an inspiring story that transcends the traditional comedy.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Here is the year's least welcome technological advance, the computer-generated butterfly meant to provide a touch of magic for a film that has none of its own. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Offensive and deeply false 'inspirational!' – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: Williams pulls out all the stops in a lead role that gives him carte blanche to careen between extremes of silliness and sentimentality; he tries too hard, too obviously, much like the pic itself. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Dec 22, 2014

Rotten: Its simpleminded mawkishness aside, Patch Adams also represents filmic storytelling at its most corrupt. – Dennis Lim, Village Voice, Dec 22, 2014

Fantastic

this movie was very funny, touching, and sad. Robin Williams was great and I am stunned by the negative reviews. do not listen to critics because this movie is brilliant

truth

As all art should, this movie showed a most essential universal truth: love, though a source of great loss, is the only way to reality, the good. Love requires trust, and trust necessitates faith in goodness. Patch is one of the very few people on this planet to have faith in the goodness of all. And because of that trust, he has given himself completely to humanity. I can find no other work of non-fiction that has better shown the value of love. Patch does not even pay for malpractice insurance!! And this is only foolish if we can't trust one another, but we can.

another robin williams's great work!

I like robin williams . He makes me smile all the time.
