Laughter is contagious.
Movie #2 of this weekend! I was playing Just Dance 3 and randomly thought, “I haven’t seen Patch Adams in a long time. I should watch that.” So I did. Lovely how my mind works sometimes.
Hunter “Patch” Adams is a man who desperately wants to be a doctor after he realizes how much he enjoys helping others. He challenges the system that preaches distance from patients and makes connections with them. Why should a doctor be just a man in a white coat? Why can’t he a friend as well?
This movie is just so cute. I like it because it has elements of a lot of movies in it. Ok, not a lot, but more than just a comedy. It makes me cry. It’s so cute how he’s great with kids and other patients. I wish my doctor was more like Patch.
This kind of captures my interest too because my boyfriend is a pre-med major and I hope he turns out like this. I could go on for far too long about him, so let’s just sum it up in saying this is what I imagine his med school will be like. All I really have are Scrubs and this to show me what med school is like.
The supporting characters in this are great too. Truman is a favorite and weirdly so is Mitch. I think it’s just because I respect Philip Seymour Hoffman as an actor. But whatever. Robin Williams kills this movie. Oh, bad pun.
