Editorial Reviews

Once upon a time, a lovely maiden lived in an enchanted land. Surrounded by great friends and a terrific job, yet cursed with insomnia, she longed for the day when Prince Charming would enter her life ... so she could finally get some sleep. DREAM FOR AN INSOMNIAC is a charming, hip romantic comedy, a reverse Sleeping Beauty tale for everyone who's ever dared pursue their wildest dreams, starringIone Skye, Jennifer Aniston and Mackenzie Astin. Frankie (Ione Skye, Gas Food Lodging) hasn't slepta full night since she was six years old. She's convinced that once she and her best friend Allison(Jennifer Aniston, The Good Girl) leave San Francisco to pursue acting careers in Los Angeles, she'll meet her dream man: one "with the soul of a poet and eyes like Frank Sinatra." Then, she'll be able to sleep. Four days before moving to L.A., David (Mackenzie Astin, The Evening Star) walks into Frankie's life. She's convinced he's her very own Prince Charming. She now has only three days to convinc

Customer Reviews

This movie is really great if you take it for what it is - a fun romantic comedy.
Angela D. Moore
There are so many lines from this movie that have become my mottos. "Anything less than mad, passionate, extraordinary love is a waste of time.
"atheatergirl"
And Jennifer Aniston is great, too, as the ditzy best friend of Frankie (Ione Skye).

"Dream for an Insomniac" is an incredible movie that I truly didn't think I would enjoy. When I first saw it, I thought it was going nowhere, but it turned out to be one of my favorite movies ever (second only to "Gone With the Wind.")
I know a lot of people think this movie in unrealistic and fails where other Gen X movies succeeded. My note to them is that this movie isn't a typical Hollywood romantic comedy, which is why it was done independently. You have to acknowledge and respect Tiffani DeBartolo (writer and director) for her wonderful sense of language. I realize some people do not talk like Frankie, David, Allison, Roberto, and Juice, but that is not the point. Enjoy this movie for the lessons in life and love it has to offer. There are so many lines from this movie that have become my mottos.
"Anything less than mad, passionate, extraordinary love is a waste of time. There are too many mediocre things in life to deal with and love shouldn't be one of them."
"I either get what I want or I change my mind."
Please just give this movie a chance. I know not everyone will like it, but don't knock it until you see it.

I have watched this movie over and over. I disagree with the editorial review that says that Frankie is "utterly spoiled and obnoxious." Do these people watch the movies they review at all?? She is an aspiring actress, and as such, she is perhaps overly dramatic and prone to overly contrived speeches. But, aren't all aspiring actresses (professional or merely by lifestyle) that way? And don't our friends love us anyway? Are we not entitled to love?

I am sprawled across my red, velvet chaise, wrapped in a marabou stole utterly distraught over that review. I cannot go on.....

I picked this movie up by chance one night while looking for some "hidden treasure" among the aisles at my local video store. I found it in Dream for an Insomniac. Although I am the eternal optimist, I found myself able to relate to Frankie and crew even through the sometimes cheezy dialoug. (Hey it happens in real life too!) I found myself repeating lines as I went about work the next day, "Anything less than mad passionate extraordinary is a waste of time." I have tuned some of my friends into believers as well. Not everyone will appreciate the romance and the humor, no. But not everyone understands Shakespeare either! If you are one of the few who fell in love with someone who "when they are not with you, you wish that they were in your arms..." then I reccommend you watching DFI. You make not fall head over heels, like I did. But some parts of you will be touched.

This movie is for all the romantics out there. I couldn't have picked a cuter movie if I wanted to. Ione Skye, Jennifer Anniston, and Mackenzie Astin are absolutely fabulous. The writing, the creativity and the chemistry is amazing. I can't say enough good things about this film. I fell in love with it and finally found it to buy and jumped at the chance. To this day I still watch it over and over. The characters are smart, witty, and charming. If you are into romantic comedies this one is for you.

I saw the title of this film, and by chance I picked it up and decided to rent it. I watched it right after I watched Reality Bites (I was into a whole depressive thing today I guess), and I watched it through the eyes of someone who knows what its like to not sleep. At first I thought something was wrong when the movie started out in Black and white, but it was made clear of the purpose for that once Frankie meets *the One*. I loved this movie because I imagine all the time that the guy I love (who sadly knows not about that) would try to help me sleep... (hes an insomniac too), because I know what its like to not go to sleep because of being tired of being alone. Watch this movie if you are in love :)

Awesome romantic comedy. Intelligent as hell. Highly recommended. Ione Skye fans should also check out Gas Food Lodging and Say Anything. Dream For An Insomniac is a Dream Come True for a Hopeless Romantic (such as myself). Rent it. Buy it from amazon.com. It's inexpensive. You'll thank me. -Skip Frederiksen

Unfortunately, I have read numerous terrible reviews of this movie but, I have to disagree with them. I understand that this movie lacks in many aspects when comparing it to the "big budget" movies of the day and that the "movie reviewers" have an obligation to trash movies that aren't complex both technically and script wise. I feel in love with this movie and since first watching it 6 months ago, I have showed it to over 20 people...all who have fallen in love with "Dream for an Insomniac". The movie is perfect for all of you hopeless romantics who are wishing upon that star for your soulmate to enter your life and "make everything wonderful". Who cares if it isn't realistic!!! Sometimes we all need a little magic in our lives...that's where movies come in.
