The Dream Team Character Analysis

Good Essays
The movie, The Dream Team, is about four different men who are in a mental institution. The four men are all sick with some mental illness. The four men are Billy Caufield, Henry Sikorsky, Albert Lanousi, and Jack McDermott. Dr. Weitzman has a group of these four men to bring out their real selves. He wants to bring the group to a Yankees game as a field trip out of the institute. Dr. Weitzman ends up in near a crime and ends up back at the hospital. The four men are wondering around New York City having a weird time.
The character that I am analyzing is Henry Sikorsky. To me, I believe that Henry has an anxiety disorder called Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Two different types characterize OCD. One is based on truth, and the other is ritualistic.
