Bobby has a crush on Lainie, the girlfriend of Joel, the school jerk. Coleman is a crotchety old man in Bobby's neighborhood who wants to spend eternity with his wife, Gina, and seeks a mystical way to do it. During one of his experiments, Coleman winds up in the body of Bobby, while Gina ends up in the body of Lainie - only Lainie doesn't realize she's now hosting Gina, but Bobby is completely displaced by Coleman and only accessible through Coleman's dreams. Now Coleman has to convince Lainie that they were husband and wife in another life, put back together Bobby's life, and avoid being killed by Joel, with the help of Bobby's best buddy, Dinger, in order to get everyone in the proper bodies.

This is one of the most unique movies I've ever seen. Very original. It's very much in a class of it's own. It is a fun movie of the 80s with the Coreys in another one of their adventures. However it's not exactly a John Hughs type of movie. Not only is the story a bit different but even the direction, and essence of the movie is different and unique as well. I am not saying that it is a bad movie at all, I really like it for what it is. A cool 80s soundtrack from opening to closing credits. The price of this movie is very generous and worth the buy. Buy it if your a fan of 80s teen movies and add it to your collection. The soundtrack is also available here at Amazon.

Although I am doing this a bit hesitantly, I can't help but to give this movie 4 stars! This film captures the spirit of the 80's, but it is also relevant to the lives and feelings of teenagers in the new millennium.
It's not the best movie I've ever seen, but "Dream a Little Dream" has quite a good script and motivating music that fits the film well. Corey Feldman did a great job in this flick, and it's bound to capture the heart of any teenager, movie buff, or 80's junkie. Do you remember when you had that annoying love-hate relationship with your parents? Do you remember your first love or perhaps that special someone that you lost? Do you remember that punk who always bullied you and talked (...) about you? What about your "so-called" friends? If your answers to these questions are mostly "yes", then this is the film for you!
"Dream a Little Dream" really is a heart-rendering movie that captures the essence of adolescence. Definitely worth renting. Enjoy!

One of my favorite films so defining of the 80's. A classic teen angst high school movie but with imagination. I think Corey Feldman & Corey Haim made a great team in this. This film makes you want to go back to the 80's. I was just going into high school at the time this release in theaters .Watching it nowadays I completely related to Corey Haims character Dinger. Dinger and Bobby are best friends Bobby falls for Lainie the hottest girl in school and has to convince her that she loves him before the night's over but here's the story in an accident Bobby switches his body with the old man next store living life thru his eyes and vice versus. The same thing with Lainie and the old man's wife. A romantic comedy with a twist. Pay attention to the characters and their bond. A great film about friendship & relationships in high school. An essential to collection for anyone who grew up in 80's cinema. I own the DVD and the soundtrack is great too.

This is not a John Hughes film, but it is right up there with all of his. Corey Feldman and Corey Haim were always great together, and this little known classic is no different. The soundtrack is awesome from opening to end credits.

I loved this movie when it came out, and now that I own it my own teenager can't stop watching it. There is a subtle underlying message that I didn't really get when I was younger, but it is fun to see my 17 year old daughter relating to the same things as I did nearly twenty years ago.

Corey Feldman blatantly demonstrates his affinity for all things Michael Jackson in an especially fun dance scene. Screen legends Jason Robards, Piper Laurie, and Harry Dean Stanton add a nice depth to this wonderful movie.

This movie is a great movie and I have been enchanted by it since I first saw it in the 80's. Now it is out on DVD and I still enjoy it. It is so romantic and has alot of human emotion in it. I have to also admit I used to be in love with Meredith Salenger. She is such a fine actress and Wow, what a bod. This movie has soooo much cool music in it and it appeals to all ages. The romantic part of me loves this movie and it is right up there with another romantic movie that I love, "Xanadu" with Olivia Newton John. Corey Feldman might not have been the best actor ever, but he was excellent in this and the Academy Awards should have noticed. (Like they ever vote for anthing that REALLY deserves it). The rest of the crew made an excellent movie and the dirctor and editor did a first rate job. What else did the director go on to do?
Pick up the sound track and you will love it. I listen to it all the time and the inclusion of the Van Morrison hit "into the mystic" sets the mood for any situation. Beautiful movie and all time classic.

I saw this movie when it first came out... I"ve owned the soundtrack on tape and now on CD... I've bought the movie used from a video store when I couldn't find it new - and I hope that it will somehow get onto DVD... The movie is a must see if not a must own.. the Soundtrack is a MUST OWN for sure... one of my fave's of all time with it's ONLY problem being that it doesn't have the song "Where Is She" by Blue Future on it - if you've seen the movie, you know the song... other than that it's near perfection... another great soundtrack "The Lost Boys" ironically another Corey/Corey tagteam hit...

Mrs Haim (NIcola) As two Corey fans(from years ago...), this is definately a cult Coreys film. It reminds of me of the fab 80s, the Brat Pack and the all round "cool"ness that was and is 'dream a little dream'. If you are a fan of either of the Coreys, then definately watch this and reminisce... Mrs Feldman (Melissa) We are huge Coreys fans, so we have seen all of their films and this is by far the best. The soundtrack is fantastic!!!! and I just love my "husbands" dancing! I just wish this film was easier to buy in England as we have worn out our current copy!!!!This is a must film, so go watch it!!!!!!!

Jason Robards is obsessed with transcendental meditation and is constantly trying to get his wife to experiment with him. They live in a classic turn of the century style house near the school - so near in fact that he keeps threatening the school kids who keep cutting through his garden - notably Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. Just as he finally cajoles his wife one night into experimenting with the meditations with him out in the garden, Feldman and his girlfriend, or rather the girl he would like to be his girlfriend, ride through on their bikes colliding with the couple and with metaphysics.
Several improvements are made on the classic "Freaky Friday" theme. For thing, Feldman and Robards are adversaries. For another, it is not just Robards and Feldman that make the switch. His wife has too but she doesn't realize it. She, as Feldman's young girlfriend, doesn't understand why she can't remember her locker combination or dance routines. As Robards, with help from Haim's character, tries to adjust to life as a high schooler in the days of mousse and Michael Jackson, he is haunted by cryptic dreams where Feldman - who seems to know more than he is letting on - warns him that he must make her realize who she is before it is too late and Robard's wife is lost forever.
