The lives of a crusty old scientist and a bratty, teen Michael-Jackson-wannabe are about to intersect in a paranormal way. Coleman Ettinger seeks to break down the door of reality through studied dreaming; Bobby Keller wants Lainie Diamond, the girlfriend of his high school friend Joel, a handsome school jock. As Coleman persuades his wife Gena to join his experiments, an accident knocks their bodies out of existence, along with Bobby's consciousness. Coleman's consciousness winds up in Bobby's body while Gena's ends up buried and asleep inside Lainie's. Only when sleeping can Coleman contact Bobby and elicit his help in putting things back, except that Bobby smugly prefers limbo over his aggravated life as a modern teenager.Written by
This was the last time Corey Haim appeared in a mainstream film. His drug addiction got him blacklisted from Hollywood, and he would spend the rest of his career making low-budget, direct-to-video movies. Though he did make a cameo in Crank: High Voltage (2009) alongside Jason Statham. See more »

Dinger! Dinger, wake up for a minute. I gotta talk to you, Buddy.
Bobby, I'm asleep. I'm sound asleep, Bobby. I'm dreaming. Apache women. Mai-taih's. Vannah White and a whip.
I'm in love.
That could be a problem.
I don't think you understand.
No, no, I do understand. I really do. Which hand is it this week PAL?

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Just another teenage flick was turned into a decent movie by the direction and production team. I normally don't care for slow motion sequences like the ones in this movie, but they work because of the eerie tone. The soundtrack of familiar 60/70s music also works for the same reason.
My favorite scene is where the Robards character is pretending to be the Feldman character by trying to speak teenage slang. I can picture Robards speaking the lines and it just breaks me up. A nice supporting cast rounds out the story, which essentially doesn't amount to much more than two people finding respect for each other. In this case, it's all that it needed.
