Movie Info

When Coleman Ettinger (Jason Robards, Jr.) and his wife, Gene (Piper Laurie), attempt a mystical experiment, an accident transports their minds into teenagers Bobby Keller (Corey Feldman) and Lainie Diamond (Meredith Salenger), while the kids end up trapped in a dream state. While Coleman enjoys his youthful existence for a little while, he soon longs to return things to the way they were, which proves to be more problematic than he had imagined.

    A strange, but fun tale of body switching, and it's got both Coreys! I highly recommend it, it's a great teen movie.

    The two Corey's again hmmm odd plot here, nothing original but plenty of holes leaving you wondering what on earth is really happening. There is no proper explainations as to how and why the body/mind switch happens and then it all becomes nothing at the end?? huh? Poor performances from all really, many of the bigger names are possibly there simply to cash in on being with the younger stars, to show they are still hip hehe Can't recommend unless you love the two Corey's.

    after viewing Licence To Drive and Lost Boys, I was totally looking forward to this flick. A major dissapointment, it sucked large!

    Not exactly that entertaining. I didn't find this all that funny. This movie certainly did not bring out the best in Jason Robards either. Not that fun of a movie to watch.
