Patch Adams


Patch Adams

Year released





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, humour 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 humour with an inspiring story that transcends the traditional comedy.

Cast and crew

  • Robin Williams
  • Daniel London
  • Monica Potter
In Patch Adams, Robin Williams portrays Hunter "Patch" Adams, a heroic man who wants to become a doctor because he genuinely enjoys helping people. As a result, he enrolls at Virginia Medical University but is disillusioned by the school's clinical perspective on patient care. With the aid of a wealthy friend, Adams decides to open his own medical clinic for patients without insurance.

To call Patch Adams a tearjerker would be an understatement. The movie is sentimental and moving, with occasional moments of silliness and a great performance from Robin Williams. Stream it when you're in need of a good cry.
