Dream a Little Dream Reviews
March 5, 2010
It made no sense. This is probably one of the worst movies of its kind. Very dated too. You will have to be an eighties nut to have any hope of enjoying it, and I would still advise skipping it even if you are. It stinks. (First and only viewing - 10/15/2014)

Loved it. One of the best body swiching movies I have seen. Plus it's got the 2 Corey's in it.

Dream A Little Dream is one of those body swap movies. Took me a while to figure that out since the beginning of the film is awfully confusing and almost seemed liked it was going to be one of the worst movies ever. Soon enough, we realize that an old man scientist and his wife conduct some mind transfer experiment that somehow transferCorey's character, a troubled high school teen, and part of another girls character into body swap. And there's a dream world. The huge problem with this film is that nothing is ever clearly established, stuff happens quickly, scenes come in and end without much impact, and you genuinely don't care. You feel like there's supposed to be this thing where the old man and Feldman will learn something positive from the body swap, and I suppose they do, but instead I pity the old man and think Feldman's an asshole for playing with this old man and refusing to swap back just because his life is screwed up, so he makes the old man repair it for him in Feldman's body. It's sloppy, uneven, and lacking clarity. I like the Two Coreys, and the old man played by Jason Robards is a good character, but the film really amounts to nothing. I see exactly what it was trying to do, and I even read the plot summary for this film and thought "Geez, the film didn't really bring on that vibe with much success, did it?" I really SOOOO wanted to enjoy this film, but man does it flop. Not sure if it was the script or the way it was edited, but something wasn't right with this film. There's a small handful of good moments, but when the whole film doesn't click in the end, that doesn't really seem to matter, does it?

This is some what of an overlooked gem . No doubt it would fare better among critics now that America is aging. Piper Laurie and Jason Robards make real a beautiful adult romance in their few moments together on screen. So much so that terror fills your heart when it appears that they could lose one another forever. Meredith Salenger is convincing as a teen inhabited by an older spirit. The Coreys as a team just do not belong in the movie. Corey Feldman's performance is uneven but not awful - it just doesn't work to switch back and forth from the dominant plot to a sidebar double Corey subplot.

I still don't understand this movie. It makes no sense and the Corey's have never been worse (and that's saying a lot!!)

entertaining movie but corey feldman channeling michael jackson was so distracting. why the director let that go on i will never know but anyway... to me what helps this movie is the switching premise. i have always liked movies that are like that. corey haim is very good as usual. if you watch it for anything watch it for the story and for haim :)

Another Two Corey fave from a kid that I think is interesting in the whole switching bodies scheme of things. Feldman and Robards making a switcheroo could have only happened in the late 80's. And Meredith Salenger was beyond a dream here. It was between her and Heather Graham for hottest actress in the late 80's.

I love this movie. Very different and makes you think about your life. I seriously think everyone should watch this movie at least once.

I'm not sure that anyone can tell me what this film was about. It's such a muddled mess that I just found myself staring at the screen until my eyes crossed and turned things into a blur matching the quality of the screenplay.

This movie is great.. A teenage flick that actually makes you think. When you speak to other people who have seen it, everyone interprets the story line and ending differently. Two thumbs up.

I'm not kidding when I say this is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, film makers need to watch and study this to know what not to do when making a movie.

Fun, yet meaningful teenage flick. I was the perfect age for this when it came out and I still can't see it too many times.
