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

The famous movie quote "What's wrong with Death, sir?", which Patch Adams said in this trial can be seen as a direct reference to the book "Gesundheit" by Hunter Adams, which the movie is partly based on. The chapter "Humor and Healing, or Why we're building a silly hospital" contains a part named "Fun Death", in which Adams criticizes that the society is uncomfortable with death that only a few are willing to discuss this matter. It is mentioned in the book that the real Patch Adams even asks his patients what kind of death they want. See more »

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.
