The DVD came quickly and is in good condition. The film has a number of different titles including "Flying" but this is "Dream to Believe" which actually makes less sense. It's a very typical montage-a-plenty 80s film, and despite the amateurishness of the overall production I thought Reeves stood out as more controlled and focussed on his role. It's a typical underdog makes good film, totally unoriginal and rather silly in places but not entirely unenjoyable to watch if you can switch off your modern brain ;-) It wasn't so bad. It was quite a blast from the past actually, seeing very VERY 80s stuff and references but it's dated and hasn't aged well. Probably one of Reeves' most forgettable film roles, although I quite liked his character. Not bad for a few quid.

HASH(0x96dcdd94) out of 5 stars I remember this one.. 17 Sept. 2005
By None of your Business - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I saw this 100 years ago (OK - it was 1986) and must have rented it a billion times because of the gymnastics and this is where I was first introduced to the hottie Keanu Reeves.

Not very realistic in the gymnastics department but then, no "gymnastics" movie ever is. I am going to get it out of nostalgia and will let you know how it holds up nearly 20 years (!) later....

HASH(0x96dcdde8) out of 5 stars Good Early performance by the Reevester! 8 Sept. 2000
By Nettie - Published on Amazon.com
Hey!
A must for Keanu fans....
Ke gives a good early performance as geeky Tommy Werneki, who gets the girl and helps her overcome her trials.
He looks awfully cute and fresh looking and his love scene is tender and caring.
Add this to your collection....!

HASH(0x95e2cc18) out of 5 stars Possibly the nadir of Keanu's carreer...and he was just getting started. 8 Oct. 2008
By The Whatever Dude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I only today, picked this up at the 99 cents only store today, and I still think I got ripped off. "Dream to Believe" is a pretty boring and unrealistic gymnastics drama and $1 is just too freakin' expensive for this. This film is probably only notable for 2 things: 1. It has a young Keanu Reeves. And 2. It's directed by Paul Lynch, the man who also did Promo Night. Now onto the movie.

It's about a girl named Robin (Played by Olivia D'Abo) who is badly injured from a car accident that also cost her father's life. So the accident prevents her from competing in gymnastic tournaments, she is often picked on during her classes and eventually she meets some wild kid named Tommy (Played by Keanu.) Robin, when not in training, works part-time, along with her mother and stepsister, at a Laundromat owned by her abusive stepfather. Eventually she is chosen to compete.

Overall, Keanu alone and some catchy 80s tunes are what prevent me from giving this 1 star, and it's also not one of the worst movies ever, but still far from good. The DVD itself is not getting any medals either as it appears to be sourced from an old VHS and towards the end, the sound goes out of sync and when the end credits are almost over, it fades to black, even though sound can still be heard. So this can probably be passed as a bootleg. The DVD artwork makes no sense either as it has what appears to be recent photos of Keanu and Olivia and the background has nothing to do with the movie, as it's also not in the movie itself, so the cover's obviously photoshopped. In any case, avoid at all costs, unless you're a Keanu fanatic. I probably won't be hanging to it any longer. I'm probably gonna give it to The Cinema Snob, who's a great YT critic btw. Hey, if any of you have any crappy movies that they no longer want in their sight, feel free to donate to him to keep his show running.

HASH(0x96dce070) out of 5 stars Keanu and more 18 Jun. 2014
By Miss Hater - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I got this movie because I'm a big fan of Keanu Reeves. It is always great to see him in anything but I didn't expect that much from the film. I was pleasantly surprised. I found myself really getting into the story and rooting for Robin in her struggle. When she did her final routine I was actually nervous, just hoping she'd make it. Keanu was great and very adorable as Robin's supportive boyfriend Tommy. Tommy and Robin made a cute couple and I enjoyed their love story. I also liked her relationship with her close friend ,played by Jessica Steen. I've heard people complaining this isn't a realistic gymnastics movie but I have no interest in gymnastics so I couldn't care less. Cute and enjoyable little movie.

HASH(0x96dce2b0) out of 5 stars No visine needed. 25 Mar. 2014
By Boyd Henson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Dream to Believe is sort of a Flashdance for the gymnastics crowd, and that's a good thing. Good movie with great gymnastics, with a very young Keanu Reeves establishing that he would become a big star someday. This edition of the movie was watchable, too, an 8/10 on the viewing scale. Other DVDs and VHS tapes are so poorly transferred you can't sit through them - believe me, I bought all of them!
