This film is fantastic
5 April 1999 | by (White Plains, New York) – See all my reviews

Dream Trap is a film for those who enjoy a little fantasy with a little bit of that late 1980's College Frat silliness. Kristy Swanson is great in this film and many will fall in love with her innocence and beauty. Sasha Jenson plays his role terrifically as the nerd that has fantasies about a character and actually meets the identical looking twin to his dream in real life. I wish Kristy Swanson had shown more skin in the film however she has a terrific body and a great personality.
