A Very Moving Story

by Damian Potesta on 6/23/1999

Going into Patch Adams I was expecting another typical Robin Williams warm-fuzzy movie. The ones that we've become so accustomed to in the past. What it ended up to be was a very warm, sad and hilarious movie that made you really care about all the charac

A Must See for all Doctors!

by Dr. William on 7/2/1999

Great movie from the beginning. This movie had it all: Drama, romance, and comedy. All doctors should be like Patch Adams. The real Patch is a good inspiration to all people in that he gives them hope, even in times when all seem lost. A must see!

Review ...this is Robin Williams we're talking about, and he brings a magic and charm to this character that no one else could. The film's best moments come at the beginning when Patch is self-committed at a mental institution and helps his roommate overcome his fears of imaginary squirrels by shooting them with an equally invisible bazooka. The supporting cast is also noteworthy, though romantic interest Monica Potter (Without Limits) plays the ice queen with such steely resolve that it would be tough to fathom why Patch would even be interested in her if she didn't so closely resemble Julia Roberts. Philip Seymour Hoffman (recently seen stalking Lara Flynn Boyle in Happiness) plays Patch's suspicious roommate with an intimidating intensity. Patch Adams succeeds in putting a twinkle in your eye.

Review Patch Adams is a perfect vehicle for Robin Williams. He again plays the compassionate, manic clown that has been his main character throughout his movie career. And audiences love his wild end runs. Williams has an amazing knack for breathing new life into his persona, and Patch Adams, opening today, is a fine showcase for his talent. Only Williams could could play the part (although he seems too old to be a medical student).
