Patch Adams is determined to become a medical doctor because he enjoys helping people. Unfortunately, the medical and scientific community does not appreciate his methods of healing the sick, while the actual patients, medical professors, and hospital nurses all appreciate the work *he* can do, because they are unable to do it.Written by

One of the film's producers, Mike Farrell, met the real Patch Adams when Adams served as an advisor to the TV series M*A*S*H (1972), in which Farrell played B.J. Hunnicutt, one of the Army doctors. See more »
When Patch tells Dean Walcott he wants to see his records, the Dean replies that they are confidential. As Patch walks out, the Dean has his head down, he is writing and his left arm on the desk, before he lifts his head, moves both his arms and prepares to get out of his chair. However, when the Dean says "Only the staff...", he is still writing and his left arm is back on the desk, before he stands up. See more »
Patch Adams is the remarkable true story about a man determined to become a medical doctor because he enjoys helping people. The medical community though do not like his methods of healing the sick patients, even though everyone else appreciates and enjoys what he does as he is the only one who can do so. Robin Williams stars as Patch 'Hunter' Adams and he does a brilliant job as always. He's an amazing actor and *really* funny too. Other good performances, come from Philip Seymour Hoffman and Monica Potter. Patch Adams is a must-see and I give the movie a 10/10.
