Critic Reviews of "Patch Adams"VarietyMay 20, 2008
Williams pulls out all the stops in a lead role that gives him carte blanche to careen between extremes of silliness and sentimentality; he tries too hard, too obviously, much like the pic itself.Time OutJune 24, 2006
An overdose of sentimental claptrap, underscored by Marc Shaiman's clichéd string arrangements.Miami HeraldJanuary 01, 2000
Has some very funny moments, but they're all drowned out by an overbearingly sentimental script.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It extracts tears individually by liposuction, without anesthesia!Detroit NewsJanuary 01, 2000
A movie of depth and delight!Dallas Morning NewsJanuary 01, 2000
A sure-fire crowd-pleaser!Sight and SoundJune 18, 2012
Shadyac underscores Williams' comic routines with superfluous and frankly relentless reaction shots of patients and hospital staff alike crumpling with laughter.Common Sense MediaDecember 27, 2010
True-story medical tale is made shallow and sentimental.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)September 02, 2009
Indulges to the hilt every obnoxious, hyperactive, oh-what-I-wouldn't-give-for-a-tranquilizer-gun aspect of Robin Williams' performing style.eFilmCritic.comAugust 18, 2007
Has obviously been made for an audience that has never seen a movie before.Film Quips OnlineFebruary 08, 2003
...Formulaic from the word go, with so many trite, overused devices that it could serve as a primer for 'things to avoid when making an original movie.'
