Dr. Weitzman works with patients in a sanitarium. Convinced that all that his "group" needs is a some fresh air and some time away from the sanitarium, he pursuades the administration to allow him to take them to a ballgame. Unfortunately, he accidentally stumbles across a crime in progress and ends up in hospital. The group are stranded in New York City, forced to cope with a place which is often more bizarre than their sanitarium. Written by

Michael Keaton, who would star in "Batman" the same year opposite Jack Nicholson as the Joker, appears in this film playing basically a version of the same type of character that Nicholson played in the earlier "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". Christopher Lloyd also appears in this film as well as Cuckoo's Nest. See more »

[in the hospital room of whom they think is Dr. Weitzman]
Father, may I say a few words? I knew this man perhaps better than anyone here. I pledge to continue his work for as long as I live.
He devoted his life to the treatment for the insane.
[looks at the corpse - turns to Henry]
Henry, may I say a few words?
Oh certainly, William.
It's not him.
Perhaps I'd better bring my remarks to a close.

This movie is very funny. It's one of those movies that I don't think the company had any awards in mind while making it, they just wanted to have fun. Movies like this are the best kind. I think Peter Doyle and Stephen Foster did great as supporting actors.
