Trivia: Patch Adams
  • Creator Backlash / Disowned Adaptation: The real Patch Adams himself was dissatisfied with the film, saying that it is more commercial and focuses more on him being funny than his actual methods note . He was also annoyed that Robin Williams did not bother to donate any of his salary to his institute, although he does not dislike Williams and does applaud his support for St. Jude Children's Hospital.
  • Dawson Casting: Patch Adams, who was 24 when this movie takes place, was played by 47-year-old Robin Williams.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Of all people, one of the kids is played by Greg Sestero, who later played Mark in The Room.
