Meet Patch Adams (Academy Award® winner, Robin Williams), a doctor who doesn't look, act or think like any doctor you've met before. For Patch, humor is the best medicine, and he's willing to do just about anything to make his patients laugh - even if it means risking his own career. Based on a true story, Patch Adams combines sidesplitting humor with an inspiring story that transcends the traditional comedy.



  • A fantastic film about believing in yourself.

    The late Robin Williams portrays Patch Aden’s with heart and wit. The story is based on real life events, it the direction is amazing. This film is more of a drama than a comedy, as it was advertised as a comedy, but best movie I have seen in a while. I 100% recommend this film.

    Robin Williams gives a good performance as a man with mental health issues who decides to become a doctor after a stint in an institution. Based on a true story, the film is funny, sad and inspiring. Well worth seeing.
