Most underrated comedy of all time!


I really love this movie and put it very high up on the list of greatest comedies of all time. I dont stop laughing throughout this entire movie. The cast is supurb especially Christopher Lloyd! If you haven't seen this movie I highly suggest you do so, you will not be dissapointed. 10/10!

I agree. It also has very strong things to say about what happens when people's "roles" don't work anymore

it was good... not one of the greatest of all times by any means

Yes, definitely one of greatest comedies of all time. 👍

Probably not the most underrated comedy of all time, but nevertheless one of my all-time favorites.

I just watched this last night for the first time. I literally laughed once throughout this movie, when Christopher Lloyd was rearranging the shirts because someone put a large with the XLs, or something of that nature. I don't mean to be disparaging, but I honestly want to know, what other parts of this movie made people laugh? I love movies, especially comedies. Just yesterday I watched "Evolution" and "Club Paradise." Neither of those movies made me laugh very much, but at least I enjoyed watching them. I can't say the same for The Dream Team. For those of you that liked this movie, please sound off and let me know which parts were supposed to be funny.

I'd forgotten all about this film! It just popped in my head just now .

i think because the doorbell in the warehouse next door has been set to "row row row your boat ...."
which rang a distant bell with mental illness (just figured out now it was cos of dana carvey in "moving")
thought of discussion on "the jerk" board about "is it pc?"
and then arrived at this film about mental patients!

must get a copy :)
