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!

It's like they had two movies filmed on the same sets/locations...both failed to finish...then some genius editor figured out how to blend them into one movie.

Alternatively, someone went in with a scrip about a surreal idea to transcend the real world into the dream world and Hollywood said "That's great, but you know what kids are loving in the 80s? THE COREYS! Let's work them in there, and some musical numbers, and some ridiculous clothes designed by that Cindy Lauper broad...then we'll fund your movie." And they did.

Ah this brings me back to my teen years growing up with the two Corey's. I remember seeing this when I was younger and was disappointed back then when I saw it. Corey Feldman was going through his Michael Jackson faise. I had a crush on Lanney too. Now when I watched it was little better then I remember, just not good direction between the two Corey's I think they just let them play the part they had in soo many movies they've done together. I was also very surprised they did a sequel to this one!

This movie may not be for everyone, but it's one of my all time favorite late 80's movies. The Corey's are great in there roles! This movie has all the elements of an 80's Teen Buddy/Romance film but then also has a fantasy/mystery element that takes it to a different level. On top of that, it has an excellent sound track!

Old and Young work together in this movie when an older man's mind ends up in a teenager's body. The music is terrific in this movie. The song "Dream A Little Dream Of Me" was written in 1934 and performed by such people as Louis Armstrong. And this movie uses that song three time, plus some background music throughout the movie. I even looked up that song and wrote out the trombone part because this movie, along with the movie "Leap Year" make good use of that great old song. The movie reminds me of the movie "18 Again" with George Burns and Charlie Slater, another 5-star movie, maybe a bit better than this one.

Speechless. This will go down as one of the crappiest movies of all time. Was not even in a bad way good. Baically just A Flock of Seagulls haircuts and high school girls in leotards bending over (you'll feel creepy). Concept was not clear, I understand cocaine is a hell of a drug.
