* BlackAndWhiteMorality: The villain seems to have no motivation other than to enforce traditions, while the charming rebel is always portrayed in good light, even when he does highly questionable things.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: Lots of changes were made. Most notably, the romantic love interest Carin was really a male best friend of Patch Adams [[spoiler:who was killed under similar circumstances]].

''Patch Adams'' (1998) is a VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory movie starring Creator/RobinWilliams as Hunter "Patch" Adams, a medical student who wants to treat people, not just diseases. To do this, he bucks authority, dresses up as a clown, and acts silly and (on occasion) unprofessionally. Also features Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman in a smaller role as Patch's roommate.

The movie centres largely around Adam's clashing with the old guard of medicine over how to treat patients, specifically their cold and detached bedside manner. Patch argues they need to be more involved with the person and not treat them as another statistic, whilst his superiors point out that getting emotionally involved helps neither doctor nor patient.
