What more can be said about this film but brilliant, four mental patients go on a field trip with their doctor to a baseball game. Only when the doctor goes missing they must go on the run and rescue him from a pair of crooked cops.
Billy (Michael Keaton) is a patient that is a pathological liar with a violent streak. Henry (Christopher Lloyd) a neat freak, Jack (Peter Boyle) a former advertising executive who thinks he's Christ. and Albert (Stephen Furst) a near catatonic couch potato.
A great movie and certainly worth sitting through an 1 hour and 48 mins for. Great comedy a real classic a movie which shows how a comedy is meant to be done.

The Dream Team is directed by Howard Zieff and written by John Connolly and David Loucka. It stars Michael Keaton, Christopher Lloyd, Peter Boyle, Stephen Furst and Lorraine Bracco. Music is by David McHugh and cinematography by Adam Holender.

Billy Caulfield (Keaton)-compulsive liar and prone to violent outbursts; Henry Sikorsky (Lloyd)-tidy freak who thinks he's a doctor; Jack McDermot (Boyle)-thinks he's Christ; Albert Ianuzzi (Furst)-near catatonic personality who can only speak in sports jargon.

There are people, and perhaps even that little old angel on your shoulder from time to time, that tell you that one shouldn't make fun of the afflicted; case in point folk with mental issues. So it be with this here amusing picture, a film that basically sees four odd balls let loose in New York as they try to find their missing doctor and foil the couple of dirty cops who want to silence said doctor for good. Yet Zieff's film is neither crass or stupid, the comedy is well drawn, with the characters themselves not the danger to society kind, but the misfit sort who are struggling to fit into said society. Looking in at it a bit deeper, film has valid points about acceptance, messages about understanding, friendships and collective group unity being powerful. Even the effects of work pressure is given a sardonic glance. It's not like the makers set out to offend, pic never even sails close to the wind, evidently they clearly set up to entertain and amuse, and that goal is achieved royally because The Dream Team is awfully funny.

A comedy about what happens when four mental patients -- an aggressive sociopath, a Jesus freak with a penchant for removing his clothes at inopportune moments, an obsessive-compulsive with a neatness fetish, and a young man who can communicate only in baseball-speak -- are set free in Manhattan. It all begins when their doctor takes them on a day-trip to see a baseball game at Yankee Stadium. When the doctor is abducted after witnessing a murder, these four crazies are on their own. Each takes advantage of his freedom to pursue his own off-the-wall concerns before banding together again to rescue the doctor.
A brilliant comedy that just keeps giving!

This is comedy at its best, and also has that 80's feel,a good story, specific to comedies until the 90's when they started to rarely have an interesting one.Four mental patients suddenly find themselves alone on the run in the Big Apple and "better get sane real goddamn fast" , as they are being accused of attacking their psychiatrist -what a great premise for a comedy.Michael Keaton was born for this part, the "mental patient with a history of violence".Peter Boyle is also great as an ad executive who believes Jesus is speaking to him, Lloyd and Furst are also great.Combined with the great dialog, delivers one of the best comedies made in the 80's.

Memorable quote:"Ah, it's great to be young and insane!"

I loved this film the first time i saw it many years ago on a VHS tape. So i was thrilled when i stumbled across it by accident. I immediately ordered it on dvd format and couldnt wait for its arrival. It was so dated but still a Great Funny movie none the less. It really did take me down memory lane and filled me with a rather surreal overwhelming emotional feeling from doing so. Memories from a very distant past that this movie brought flooding back to me when watching it. However those feelings were short lived when i was reminded where one of my many famous (but copied) quote`s came from...That of course being `Group Hug` whilst standing with my arms outstretched. This is a Classic movie and although its dated, that doesnt spoil any of the funny quirks and one liners. That will still make you Laugh Out Loud

This is something a nut would do but a good humour side to it and that takes the top awards. Very different to most comedy's with great ideas and marvellous actors to match what more do you want. Plenty of laughs that will have you nearly in tears but every so often it gets serious well tries to anyway. I rated this an A grade plus for sheer fun entertainment that only Michael Keaton could bring to life fabulous story plus the torture of watching this and well worth the pain so sit back put your feet up grab some munchies and relax to your hearts content, a classic worth having a look see before it disappears forever from the shelves. Enjoy!
