I watched Patch Adams
, and I have a few questions for the writers.
-As the Nostalgia Critic pointed out, how was he able to maintain almost perfect grades if he never studied? It's medical school, I should think you'd have to be very smart and
study like a motherfucker if you wanted to graduate. But we never see him study at all. Even in the study group scene, everyone else was trying to study while he was trying to chat, according to his roommate he wasn't just studying offscreen or something.
-Even if we assume that he's just magic, how the hell did his friends stay in the course while simultaneously running around with him, especially when they were running the clinic? Especially Carin, since early on in the movie, she did pretty much nothing but study, while later on, she ran around with Patch, helped with the free clinic, and I guess studied when she got the chance, and yet somehow she was doing fine
-How did he manage to construct the giant legs
by himself in a week? For that matter, where did he make them (he lived on campus) and how did he get them there?
-How the hell did he and his buddies practice medicine without a licence and receive no punishment whatsoever? I'd think that right there would've automatically prevented the court from letting him graduate, regardless of whether he meant well or not.
-Why didn't Dean Wolcott crack down on him a lot more, since he didn't want Patch clowning around inside the hospital and Patch never hestitated before breaking this rule as often and as publicly as possible?
-Why would Dean Wolcott trust Patch to treat the gynecologists with respect and dignity?
-How did he not get caught stealing the medicine by more than those two nurses, since he was so obvious about it?
-Why did the concept of a "bedside manner," not exist in this movie until Patch came along?
