The VHS box cover says:
This morning they were playing ping-pong in the hospital rec room. Now they’re lost in New York and framed for murder.
This was never covered in group therapy.
Michael Keaton heads up an all-star cast in this irresistible comedy about four mental patients who are separated from their therapist on the way to a baseball game.
A chronic liar with a violent streak, Billy (Michael Keaton) finds himself on the loose in New York City with his fellow group therapy patients: Henry (Christopher Lloyd), a clean freak, Jack (Peter Boyle), a former advertising executive with a Christ complex and Albert (Stephen Furst), a near catatonic couch potato.
Faced with the task of rescuing their missing doctor from a pair of crooked cops, the group takes to the street in a series of hilarious misadventures. Rex Reed, At The Movies calls The Dream Team “a fresh and inventive comedy with laughs that come straight from the heart.”
