“This was a humorous film about a small group of mental patients who are let loose in New York City for a day. They are u0026quot;Jacku0026quot; (Peter Boyle), u0026quot;Henryu0026quot; (Christopher Lloyd), u0026quot;Billyu0026quot; (Michael Keaton).and u0026quot;Albertu0026quot; (Stephen Furst). Actually, they are taken to a ballgame and the doctor in charge of them is kidnapped there, after he witnesses a crime. The boys are are now on their own in a u0026quot;lost in New Yorku0026quot; scenario.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMainly, this film is a bunch of sight gags more than a cohesive story. Boyle, Lloyd and Keaton are all, by now, well-known actors who bring a lot of life to their characters here. Itu0026#39;s a lot of silliness but, for the most part, works and provides a lot of laughs. As a baseball fan, I appreciated Furstu0026#39;s performance best.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePeter Boyle (u0026quot;Jack McDermottu0026quot;) plays one of several insane people who are u0026quot;lost in New Yorku0026quot; and are out on the streets having a good time. He is a u0026quot;Jesus freak,u0026quot; which the screenwriters consider nuts, of course. He and other churchgoers are pictured in the movies as lunatics. Gosh, what a shock Hollywood would do that. They also have crooked cops in here – another shock.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film still had a lot of funny moments, thanks to the actors and the interesting premise of mental patients fending for themselves in the big city. Itu0026#39;s total lunacy.”
