Movie Info

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

Hilarious and unexpectedly touching. A great vehicle for Keaton.

Yet another Keaton-related disaster. Get this guy a new agent!

Mental illness is no laughing matter, and neither is this film.

Audience Reviews for The Dream Team

The Dream Team is a very funny, well acted comedy with a great cast of talented actors. This is a very good film that has great comedy moments provided by its cast. The jokes are very funny, and the film is brilliantly directed. The Dream Team has so many good performances, that it's hard to pick the best. Every actor here is wonderful. The film has a fairly simple plot to it, but what makes this film worth seeing are the cast who are simply just hilarious. What makes the film good is the cast of accomplished actors who have proven themselves with wonderful films. The directing is good and the script has plenty of laugh out loud moments. Howard Zieff direction is well paced, and there are enough comedy bits to keep you interested from start to finish. The Dream Team is one of those rare comedies that every performance of each of the main cast stands out, and makes the film what it is. This film is quirky, zany and lots of fun. With a brilliant cast at hand, director Howard Zieff has made one of the best comedies of the 1980's. If you're looking for a great comedy, then give this film a shot. With a cast like this, it's a shame to pass up on this film. If you love well constructed comedies with a fine cast then this film is for you. The Dream Team is fun from start to finish, and there's plenty to enjoy and like I've stated before, this is a great cast who make this comedy worthwhile.
