The Dream Team

No, it's not about basketball players, it's about a quartet of mental asylum escapees who wonder around New York City where they get into heaps of trouble. The premise is rather entertaining; one guy is a very violent person, another is an exhibitionist, another has a vocabulary that is restricted to only baseball terms and another thinks he's a doctor or a person of great authority. The director and the writer try to paste a story together, and they didn't do it very well because the plot is jumbled and misleading. It's an entertaining film done by fairly respectable comics (among them is Michael Keaton, Christopher Lloyd, and Peter Boyle) and they do an excellent job in their roles. See it only if you think you might like it.
