TCP#58: Patch Adams

Hello Couchers! Welcome to the September 27th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes where we post about a movie each week. So things have been hectic for me last weekend. My hands are aching from too much wall painting yesterday and I am not even done painting yet! I only have until Friday left to paint before we move houses this Saturday. It's a miracle that I can still type on the keyboard considering the state my hands are in. Thanks to hubby who massaged my hands last night, they are feeling better.

So anyway, back to the serious business of this week's TCP theme: Favorite Robin Williams Movie. William Robins has been and always will be a comedian. He has never failed to make us laugh in his movies. It is no wonder that my favorite movie of him is Patch Adams, where he played the role of Dr. Hunter "Patch" Adams. The film tells the story of Hunter "Patch" Adams (Williams), a medical doctor who became famous for his unconventional approach to medicine. I liked his approach to treating patients: with humor and compassion and I think that's what sick people need the most: to see beyond their illness and feel that they are loved and cared for despite their illness.

This movie made me cry buckets. I was once a patient after all and I stayed at the hospital for almost two months when I was still a little girl due to an accident. I can relate to some of the patients and thankful for the care that the medical team and the support my family gave me.

What's your Favorite Robin Williams movie? Come share it with us this week and don't forget to enter your TCP link below:

So what awaits the Couchers next Tuesday? It's gonna be another month of TCP as we start a new month. For October 5, our theme will be Here Comes AUTUMN / FALL... movies that depict the fall season or movies that came out during the fall season. 

I guess that's about it for this week's TCP. Thank you for joining us! Take care and Happy TCP!

Patch Adams was a great movie and I agree with you that we everyone needs some loving care, especially from those who oversee our health.

I have seen this movie and this is great. I cried at the end, coz I can feel the love and the hardship of being different from the normal kids. Good choice Marce.
