* DefrostingIceQueen: The Critic points out how prevalent this trope was in [[TheNineties 90's films]] to compensate for the DamselInDistress trope [[InUniverse and discusses the]] UnfortunateImplications regarding how strong independent women back then weren't like that because they're strong and independent ,but because deep down they're fragile and emotional thanks to a male character.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Critic is quick to point out that Williams!Patch is too determined to be a comedian and BlitheSpirit to be a doctor (let alone a ''good'' one), and might genuinely be better as a clown cheering up patients.

* NeverLiveItDown: After learning that the real Patch Adams didn't have a love interest, to point where he gives the movie a whipping.

* CallBack: To his [[Recap/TheNostalgiaCriticS4E38 review]] of ''Film/{{The Haunting|1999}}'', saying the way the nineties writes women is similar to how it writes homosexuals.

Added DiffLines:

* WhamLine: After Patch's love interest dies and the Critic tries to figure out what to say about this without being distasteful...
-->'''Critic:''' (''frantically browsing the internet on his phone'') Maybe she ''was'' molested. Maybe she did go through all that horrible stuff. Or maybe she was... (''finds what he was looking for and suddenly stops dead in his tracks'') ...A MAN. Who was not romantically interested in Patch at all. In fact, the female character was a complete work of fiction in this movie...

Added DiffLines:

* {{Letterbox}}: The Youtube encode is non-anamorphic.

* TomHanksSyndrome: [[ThisIsGonnaSuck The Critic's reaction]] at figuring out that this is the movie's approach to using Creator/RobinWilliams says everything.

* RageBreakingPoint: After finding out the love interest was entirely made up for the movie (albeit based off of a similarly murdered friend of the real Patch).

Added DiffLines:

** However the review also gets some details wrong, such as not realizing that psychiatrists still need to go to medical school, which he corrected in the third "Top 11 Fuck-Ups" video.


* MonsterClown / NonIronicClown: The Nostalgia Critic is harassed throughout the review by "Bitch Spasms", an obnoxious clown who straddles the line by not exactly being ''evil,'' but annoying, potentially injurious, and obliviously insistent that laughter is the best and only medicine. Interestingly, he also suggests that the film's fictionalized and often unsympathetic "Patch Adams" shows less promise as a medical doctor than, and he makes it clear that he means this, as a clown who could cheer up patients -- where even then, the onscreen character is shown doing things like a sudden, loud, in-your-face performance late at night, where the film bends over backwards to have his pranks go over nice and he's just hoping no one getting the rest they needed really ''needed'' that rest. (Meanwhile, in the review, he takes a poorly-thought-out rubber ball to the nose with a wince, then a stone-faced stare.)
