Storyline

A bittersweet satire about Hollywood's bottomless capacity for corruption, Dreamers follows the travails of two friends who leave their small Tennessee town for Tinseltown. Opening with a view of Hollywood through the lens of an Asian tourist's video camera accompanied by the movie-loving tourist's ramblings, the film cuts to Jefferson City, Tennessee, where two boys indulge in fantasies of fleeing to L.A. Several years later, one of those boys, Dave, is heading west to join his childhood friend Ethan in Hollywood. Ethan has spent the past five years trying unsuccessfully to finish his untitled film, scraping together a living as an Amway salesman and construction worker. Following his arrival, Dave finds brief work on a porn set before being fired, and, as part of an attempt to help Ethan find funding for his movie, loses his virginity to a lusty Beverly Hills housewife. Written by Rebecca Flint

So-so
14 March 2000 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I had the oppurtunity to attend a sneak preview of this movie before it was released. While I think that Lu is a terrific story-teller and I would like to see what she has in store next, this movie did nothing for me. I've seen a story similar to this many times. The actor's were all adequate. I don't know what it was but it was a very unpleasant movie to watch, and you're reading a comment by a guy who thought Boogie Nights is one of the best movies of the decade. The characters were all kind of cardboard. I couldn't relate to any of them on a personal level. I definately understand if people like it though because there's a lot to like.
