This review is from: The Dream Team [DVD] (DVD)
Mike is a tad delusional. Harry believes he's a doctor. Jack is an ad executive who believes Jesus is speaking to him. Albert is an adult who occasionally wets himself.
When they are taken to a ball game by Dr. Weitzman they witness a murder and Weitzman is attacked and hospitalised.
The four crazies find that Weitzman will be murdered as a witness and no one believes four mental patients.
They have to both use and overcome their delusions in order to save the only decent doctor who is treating them, with both the police and the killers looking for them....
I was Thirteen the first time i saw this movie, and i instantly fell in love with it. Having not seen in in nearly 17 years, i was very worried that one of my favourite movies as a child would not have the same effect now, than it did in 1992.
Although it has dated quite a bit, it is still laugh out loud funny, and quite surprisingly touching in place. Understandably, the best parts of the film are when the four are bickering. It's consistently funny, and the lines are funny and never fail to raise a smile.
Keaton is in full on wacko mode in this, and is probably one of his best forgotten roles. Lloyd can play straight and yet be hilarious, but carries the films most humanistic element. If the scene where he visits his wife and daughter doesn't bring a lump in your throat, you need your brain checking.
it's a very sunshine orientated movies, with lots of quotable lines, and if you are feeling down, this is the sort of film you want to watch to brighten your day.
it's very easy to watch, goes along quite breezily, and most importantly, never gets boring.
plus Keaton has an amazing mullet.
