Movie Review – In My Dreams (2014)

By Manofyesterday

Director: Kenny Leon

Stars: Katharine McPhee, Mike Vogel

Two people, frustrated with their romantic luck, toss coins into a fountain and subsequently dream about each other. However, according to the legend of the fountain they only have a week to find each other…

From In Your Eyes to In My Dreams, this film shares a similar idea to the film I reviewed yesterday in that the two protagonists fall for each other in their own headspace. It’s a pretty standard romantic comedy with the usual mismatched love interests, the near-misses etc, but I did enjoy the performances of the leads. It doesn’t quite have the dramatic bite of In Your Eyes and I felt that the dream sequences could have had more of a surreal feeling, and the two characters don’t really seem to question whether the person in their dreams is a figment of their imagination or if they are actually real. And, really, there wasn’t much stopping them from finding each other. They could have just told each other their names in the dream and then looked each other up so I don’t know why they didn’t just do that.

But it’s a pretty sweet film and it doesn’t disappoint on the romance front so if that’s your thing, like it is mine, then it’s worth checking out.
