Like too many of Mr. Williams's recent movies, Patch Adams wastes the genius of a peerless clown. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- It extracts tears individually by liposuction, without anesthesia! Full Review

An overdose of sentimental claptrap, underscored by Marc Shaiman's clichéd string arrangements. Full Review

...[Williams] brings a magic and charm to this character that no one else could....PATCH ADAMS succeeds in putting a twinkle in your eye...

Rating: 3/5 -- The pat manipulation of emotions comes with a dangerously high level of saccharin. But anyone who's ever felt aggrieved by impersonal treatment from the medical establishment will enjoy Williams's system-bucking antics. Full Review

Rating: 0/5 -- Has obviously been made for an audience that has never seen a movie before. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Indulges to the hilt every obnoxious, hyperactive, oh-what-I-wouldn't-give-for-a-tranquilizer-gun aspect of Robin Williams' performing style. Full Review

Product Description:

Tom Shadyac's (ACE VENTURA) film tells the true story of Hunter "Patch" Adams (Robin Williams), an aspiring doctor in the 1970's who attempted to treat his patients with a medicine that modern science had totally disregarded: humor. After a stint in a mental hospital where he discovers his need to help others, a young Patch enters medical school. There he develops his own methods of reaching patients as an antidote to the the pomposity he witnesses in his instructors and fellow students. While his patients and fellow staff members appreciate his approach, the powers-that-be frown upon his "unschooled" methods and attempt to prevent him from practicing. Philip Seymour Hoffman (MAGNOLIA) and Monica Potter (ALONG CAME A SPIDER) co-star in this crowd pleaser based on a book by Adams.
