a fun movie with fun and unexpected twists

The title character, played by Robin Williams and based on a true story, had a mental illness, for which he spent some time in a mental hospital. Once released he decided to go to medical school so he could treat patients in a way that worked for him- with laughter. That he did and did well. His unconventional ways did not sit well with the faculty, especially the dean of the medical school, who tried to stop Patch from getting the degree that he rightly earned. But Patch won the appeal. This movie is filled with enough suspense to keep the audience on its toes. This movie celebrates a character and ideas that were ahead of their time.

not for kids, but all of us

You can see how the old mentality and a new one collides... you may understand why the first and second wold war erupted... dont want to be far fetched, but bringing new idea seems always difficult:)
