    A strangely done movie,

    James Spader plays a very successful businessman who just got a divorce and is very lonely until he meets the beautiful Mädchen Amick. They marry and have children but soon he discovers that his seemingly perfect "Dream Lover" of a wife has many hidden secrets that she always seem to have a perfect explanation for. <br/>DREAM LOVER has a tightly wound plot and the twists and turns really work taking the viewer along for the ride as well. Definitely worth a rent for anyone looking for a psychological Neo-Noir style mystery thriller.

    There was only one reason why I watched this and that reason was satisfied. Anyway, the actual movie was lame. I was distracted by above reason and in the olden days I would probably give this a high rating, but I'm looking past that, and rating fairly (sort of). Yeah, so without being cryptic... the plot was lame, acting was ok, good endind but the movie was fairly sucky.

    This psychological thriller is rather coldly calculated, but slickly made and unpredictable - it will certainly hold your interest, through you may hate yourself in the morning.
