"But in Your Dreams, Whatever They Be..."

Dream a Little Dream (1989)
Dir - Marc Rocco

This is the movie where Corey Haim's best friend, played by Michael Jackson, switches bodies with an old man. Ok, so I'm joking but look at how Feldman dresses, acts, dances (!) and wears his hair. It's like he was trying to be MJ. I know he did hang out with him quite a bit but this is kinda creepy.

I remembered VERY little about this movie since the last time I saw it about 15 years ago. It has a few moments of good, Meredith Salenger is quite cute (and looks a bit like Justine Bateman if you ask me), but overall this is a weird flick. More drama than comedy and I still don't understand if the old man's presence was dominant in Feldman's body (he didn't even know how to dress like the teen) then how did he know to bust out the sweet MJ dance moves? Whatever, maybe I'll brave the sequel soon.

  1. I actually re-watched this one myself not long ago. it was... odd. I can't decide whether I liked it or not, actually, so I think I ended up giving it three stars.
