Bizarre dream sequences are only a small part of this fabulous fantasy comedy starring Corey Feldman, Corey Haim, Jason Robards, Piper Laurie, and Meredith Salenger.
Bobby Keller (Corey Feldman) lives his life day to day, as he puts it. He is failing all his classes, his parents don't talk to him, and he is head over heels in love with Lainie (Meredith Salenger), although he dates Shelly. But, an accident involving Bobby and Lainie and Coleman and Geena (Jason Robards and Piper Laurie) causes Coleman to take over Bobby's mind and body, and part of Geena's mind takes over Lainie. Now, Coleman has to find a way to switch back and get his wife back. But, Bobby isn't so willing to, unless Coleman can correct his screwed-up existance, while helping him to get Lainie.
Fave scenes:The opening scene intercut with the opening credits involving Bobby and Dinger (Corey Haim) talking about Bobby's infatuation with Lainie, as well as singing the blues and why Dinger's leg was broken (reason: his mom ran him over with her Volvo), the accident scene, the dream sequences, the scene where Bobby discovers that he's Coleman, and when they were having a hard time going to sleep, the scene in the gym when they were dancing to the rock version of "Dream a Little Dream of Me", and the closing credits with Bobby and Coleman dancing to the same song. I guess you can say that I enjoyed EVERYTHING!!
This was a wonderfully romantic movie with an original plot. It was adorable, and Corey Feldman was kinda cute,despite the Michael Jackson look, something he was into for a few years. The Dream sequences wre really interesting, filmed in a strange blue tint. The movie also had an interesting plot, and great music (especially Frank Sinatra's "Young at Heart" and both versions on "Dream a Little Dream of Me."). I highly recommend it to anyone who likes the two Coreys, good acting, creativity, or body switching movies. I'm a little disappointed that some people did not care for it too much, because it was wonderful and mysterious, and very cute (I can't stress that enough.)
This is one dream you'll truly want to remember!:)
