This is where a review of Patch Adams should be

In accordance with Silly Hats Only (and, uh, others) annual White Elephant blogathon. And I was supposed to post yesterday. But I didn't. Because I suck, but above all, Blogger sucks.

And, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen...

Patch Adams sucks.

It sucks in a way only a 90s Robin Williams feel-good comedy can suck. It's that special kind of suck that has to involve cancerous children and doctors who, as well-meaning and fun as they are, have no business being doctors, seeing as how they know jack shit about curing people with anything but the power of laughter.

Fuck Patch Adams.

I feel the same way about Patch Adams as I do about Life is Beautiful. Probably the reason I burned out on the show "Enterprise," too. They kept playing THAT song as the Main Title. Instantly introduced bad associations.

I had to watch Patch Adams in my high school film class. HATED IT. Not only are the doctors stupid, as you mentioned, the whole movie itself is cheesily manipulative and just bad. Our film teacher thought it was brilliant but he also loved Mork and Mindy was later arrested for driving drunk with possession of ecstasy, cocaine and weed. Which explains a lot actually...

(drags "Patch Adams" to #202, initially #24, on his Netflix queue)

And to add insult to inanity, it was released on Christmas Day.

Yes, Blogger sucks. It's eaten about half a dozen of my posts recently. And not Cookie Monster just-pretending-to-eat, either, where you can piece the crumbs back together.
