One year later, Dream a Little Dream (1989) followed suit. Coleman Ettinger (Jason Robards) is forever scolding the local high school students who use his yard as a shortcut to and from their nearby school. Coleman is not a crotchety old coot, however. He's deeply in love with his wife Gena (Piper Laurie) and is good friends with his next-door neighbor Ike (Harry Dean Stanton). In fact, Coleman is looking for a mystical way to preserve his and Gena's lives forever by transferring their consciousness into the bodies of younger people. One day, student Bobby Keller (Corey Feldman) has a bicycle mishap with Coleman while cutting through the yard, and their minds change places. Now Coleman has the brain of a teenager, while young Bobby uses Coleman's wisdom and life experience to win over the girl of his dreams. Dream a Little Dream was the directorial debut of Marc Rocco, son of actor Alex Rocco, who costars in a supporting role. Karl Williams, RoviRead Less
VG. Book Dream A Little Dream (VHS) Video By Robards, Jason; Feldman, Corey; Laurie, Piper; Salenger, Meredith; Stanton, Hary Dean; Haim, Corey Product Details 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.
