I bought this film for £1 in my local corner shop when I had a hangover. It made it worse. Much worse. .....
19 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There's much you can write about the made for TV extravaganza that is "When Dreams Come True". I bought this movie for camp value when I had a particularly bad hangover and it actually made it worse. It's the story of a man with a giant head - but his face only takes up half of this head. Not only does he have a tiny face and a giant head but he also has very big hair. This is the entire plot of the film, apart from some deeply unnecessary subtext involving gypsies. The most frightening thing was that having seen and, supposedly got over this film, I then started seeing giant head tiny face man everywhere - he popped up as the virus carrier in "Twelve Monkeys" and then working with Lar Von Trier and Bjork as the creepy guy with the massive head in "Dancer in the Dark". So, there is a moral to this sad and twisted tale. Never buy a film for a pound - it will haunt you forever more. (The punchline being that I've now watched "when dreams come true" about ten times!!!!!)
