The made-for-TV The Dream Breakers harks back to all those Pat O'Brien and Spencer Tracy "fighting priest" films of the 1930s and 1940s. Kyle MacLachlan plays an idealistic young cleric who opposes a powerful real-estate broker (Hal Linden) with mob ties. Complication One: MacLachlan's father (Robert Loggia) is the broker's ex-partner. Complication Two: MacLachlan's brother (D.W. Moffett) is on the broker's staff. As The Dream Breakers enters the home stretch, the film has boiled down to a B-picture extortion scheme. It's best just to watch the stars and ignore what they're required to say and do.
