Critic Roger Ebert wrote a withering review of the film ("This movie is shameless. It's not merely a tearjerker. It extracts tears individually by liposuction, without anesthesia"). Later, attending an event with the actual Patch Adams, Ebert avoided him until Adams introduced himself by walking across the room and declaring, "I agreed with every word of your review of that loathesome film about me".

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.
