Critic Reviews for Electric Dreams

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (9)

  • Electric Dreams is too lightweight and, in the last analysis, inane to take the sinister attributes beyond comic bounds.

    April 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • This is a lighthearted romantic comedy that has its moments, both humorous and thought-provoking.

    April 1, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Photographically busy, though to no meaningful purpose, mildly amusing at best, the piece finally expires with what could be, but probably isn't, a parody of a feel-good ending.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • It's not often that a modern movie has the courage to give us a hero who doesn't seem to be a cross between a disco god and an aerobics instructor, but the von Dohlen character is a nice change.

    October 23, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In the failure of Electric Dreams to blend and balance its ingredients properly, plot elements are lost (the brick), credibility is overtaxed (the lovelorn computer), and what remains is high tech without being high art.

    August 30, 2004 | Full Review…
  • There are all kinds of disassociated, disturbing ideas floating around in the screenplay, none of which survive the filmmakers' decision to play everything for cloying cuteness.

    Very dated and very silly. Someone may make a good remake one day though. Mainly it survives for nostalgia.
