    Synopsis


    The Dream Team
    The eponymous team consists of four residents of a New Jersey psychiatric hospital: ex-postal worker Henry Sikorsky (Christopher Lloyd), who fancies himself a doctor; one-time ad agency exec Jack McDermott (Peter Boyle), suffering from a Messiah/martyr complex; writer Billy Caulfield (Michael Keaton), who cannot abide the "idiots" in the world (namely, everyone but himself); and TV-obsessed Albert Ianuzzi (Stephen Furst). Permitted a field trip to a baseball game, the four unfortunates wander off when psychiatrist Dr. Weitzman (Dennis Boutsikaris) is waylaid by two corrupt police officers after he witnesses them killing a third cop. The innocent inmates are accused of attacking Dr. Weitzman, but it is they who team up to bring the actual culprits to justice. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      In your Dream Team

      A side-splitting comedy about four mental patients: Michael Keaton as a habitual liar who has violent tendencies, Christopher Lloyd as an obsessive-compulsive who thinks he runs the hospital, Peter Boyle as a former advertising executive with a messiah complex who likes to take his clothes off, and Stephen Furst as catatonic couch potato. Against the wishes of the hospital administration, their compassionate doctor takes the four patients to New York City to watch a major league baseball game. When the van reaches the city, the doctor has to exit the van - with patients still inside - only to witness a murder committed by two corrupt cops. The doctor is attacked by the cops, leaving him hospitalized and unable to help his patients. The patients then find themselves framed for the murder. Now the patients have to not only act "sane" to prove their innocence, they also have to save the life of their doctor who is still a target of the two cops. What makes this movie work is the relationship of the patients. It is so much fun watching Keaton, Lloyd, and Boyle bicker all the time about the littlest things. Boyle has a really funny scene in which he leaves the van while Lloyd tries to block him. Boyle then muscles his way past Lloyd, tells him that He shall have no false gods before Him, and finally he tells Lloyd to get out his way before calling him a seven-letter word. There might only be so much you can do with a catatonic character, but Furst is quite memorable. Even though the doctor must have the patience of a saint when dealing with them, he probably has a harder time suppressing a laugh. Quite simply, this is a movie that gets better every time you watch it.

      This underrated comedy classic has finally been resurrected for Blu-ray. And despite the low price tag and relatively inconspicuous placement in stores, the disc features solid picture and sound quality. I expected a marginal upgrade over the DVD, but this release is proof that someone out there cares about The Dream Team. And so should you. Now, let's see about some of those other Michael Keaton classics from the 80's still in need of some high-definition love.

      This is one of those movies that kinda slipped through the cracks IMO. I watched this in the early 90s and thought it was hysterical even though it wasn't really a huge blockbuster of a movie. Regardless, this movie features a hoddle of great actors including Michael Keaton, Christopher Lloyd and the late great Peter Boyle. Highly recommend you pick it up and give it a shot. You won't regret it!

      I hadn't seen this film in quite awhile but have always enjoyed it when I have watched. When I saw this sitting in one of the local Best Buy stores I knew that sooner or later I was going to breakdown and buy it... and of course I did. The cast here is outstanding and the movie is quite good. Good writing and the fine performances make this one well worth watching!

      I don't know why, but I've loved this movie since I was a kid. Maybe it's because it's odd seeing Michael Keaton in a comedy. When you say "Michael Keaton", I automatically think of Batman. This isn't the best movie in the world, but it's really cheesy 80s fun.

      when I originally saw this in the theatres I didn't think it very funny despite a very talented comical cast. but rewatching it on this nice blue ray feature the movie seem to have gotten better with age. or maybe it just plays better on a small screen as apposed to the theatres. also, with a price under ten dollars you have too give it a shot.

      Classic 80's comedy, they don't make them like this anymore sadly. Has some of the funnier actors of the day Christopher Lloyd, Peter Boyle, and Michael Keaton. I been hoping to see a blu-ray release of this movie as I never did get it on DVD, Bestbuy as of right now is the only place exclusively selling it till later this year.

      Dream Team is a awesome movie. Cool older movie with some big name stars. Michael Keaton, Christopher Lloyd and Peter Boyle. They along with Stephan Furst's character escape from a mental institution for a day on the town and get in to all kinds of hijinks. Very very funny. All-star cast as well.
