It's here at last, the one you've all been waiting for!
Yes, Patch Adams was a Robin Williams (MHDSRIP) vehicle, but did you know the real Patch Adams is still fighting the good fight? The fight is good, but the movie isn't. Still - Clown Doctoring (no laughing matter)! Medical Insurance! This movie gave us a lot to talk about. There's science babble and no shortage of rayon cargo pants. Abi's counsellor falls asleep on her, Freda rages on those who make a joke of gynaecology and, somewhere, there's a millionaire playing Fur Elise.
Why can't you been the one I'm running from?
