Plot:
Michael Keaton heads an all-star cast in this wild and crazy comedy about four mental patients who get separated from their therapist on the way to a baseball game.

Billy (Keaton), a pathological liar with a violent streak, finds himself on the loose in New York City with his fellow group therapy patients: 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. Faced with the task of rescuing their missing doctor from a pair of crooked cops, the group finds themselves sharing a series of hilarious adventures in this farce The Washington Post calls an "irresistibly nutty buddy movie."

Extras:
Scene Access
Feature Trailers

My Thoughts:

Comedy about 4 mental patients out on a day pass to go to a Yankees game but never make it as their doctor goes missing.

Not bad, but not great. The movie isn't nearly as good as some of the individual performances. Peter Boyle, who thinks he is Jesus Christ is a hoot!  :laugh: Christopher Lloyd was the perfect choice to play the obsessive compulsive neat freak. He was funny but also had a touching moment or two as well. While there was nothing special about Lorraine Bracco's performance she is gorgeous in this early role, the first time I've seen her without the BIG hair.

Michael Keaton headlines this but he was the same as he was in so many of his comedies from the 80's... hyper, outlandish, smart ass and also with BIG hair.

This was ok but if you want to see a better comedy about mental patients gone awry I recommend Crazy People with Dudley Moore.  ;)

September Dawn, a review by Rich


September Dawn





Staggeringly based on a true story, it is hard to imagine how any man, in any moment of history, could have partaken in such a slaughter. Having read a bit more on the subject it is a bit biased, but if you can ignore a sloppy and fictitious love angle in the movie it is highly enjoyable.
A film with substance and some solid acting performances, notably Voight and Shaun Johnston, this is a skilful portrayal of a delicate subject. You are compelled to watch as the story unravels, culminating in a heinous crime supposedly ordained by gods will.
Fascinating viewing and given the cheap prices this can be picked up for, a true bargain.

A nice series about a teenage girl coming to terms with her homosexuality. The pilot is a good introduction and I enjoyed it.
