Washington Post - Rita Kempley
A surprisingly amiable romp about a zany quartet of escaped mental patients four who flew out of the cuckoo's nest.
Time Out - Unnamed
Despite the barrage of one-liners and almost farcial plot twists, Zieff's light touch and some unselfish ensemble acting make this team genuinely endearing.
Empire - Kim Newman
A well-put together team performance, with enough in-jokes and self-effacement to steer clear of any detours into bad taste.
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
Writers Jon Connelly and David Loucka have fashioned a script that works largely because of the efforts of the four capable and credible actors who comprise The Dream Team: Christopher LLoyd, Stephen Furst, Peter Boyle, and Michael Keaton.
Variety - Unnamed
The Dream Team is a hokey comedy that basically reduces mental illness to a grab bag of quirky schtick. Yet with a quartet of gifted comic actors having a field day playing loonies on the loose in Manhattan, much of that schtick is awfully funny.
