"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."
Metaphysical twist on classic theme

"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."

"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!!!!!!!"
