In the end, my impression of Patch Adamsis that is has some really funny scenes, and you can't help but fall in love with the guy when he's doing all of these great things, a lot of which you have probbly seen in the trailers. And he has a lot to teach everyone he comes into contact with in the film. So throughout I'm thinking, "What a great guy; I wish I was more like him." Which is always a good set-up. But it never follows through. The dramatic conclusion falls flat, and based on a true story or not, the plot points are a bit cliched. Patch Adamsis a comedy, but more appropriately it would be classified as an inspirational film. And the hallmark of the inspirational film is that climactic scene at the end where the inspirational character takes a stand and is met by stiff consequences, but ultimately we realize that he made a difference. You see it in Dead Poets Soceity in the "Oh Captain, my captain" scene. In Patch Adamsthough, it never comes. Though Patch does take an emotional stand at the end in a scene that tries to steal the emotion of a film like Dead Poets Soceity, I don't know that we're convinced that he truly made a difference.
