The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web

A delightful black comedy, which is (pardon the old cliche) more fun than a barrel full of monkeys. Streep proves once again that she can play anything, while Willis is strangely convincing as a wimp. Goldie Hawn has the most fun as the woman scorned by Streep and Willis. Her character is certainly different from anything she's ever done before. The Academy award winning effects are outstanding, as is the frantic pace set by director Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future). The only thing wrong is that they could have done a little more with the screenplay. Take some huge jabs at Beverly Hills lifestyles, plastic surgery and so forth. But even if the screenwriters could do such things with it, they'd be heavily overshadowed by the superb effects. Still, you can't say that they didn't try.
