Follow That Dream
Director: Gordon Douglas
Writers: Charles Lederer / Richard P. Powell / Herman Raucher
Release Date: 1962
Original Title: Follow That Dream
Portuguese Title: Venham Sonhar Comigo
This is a comedy in which the protagonist, Toby, is a big boy from New Jersey with no particular qualities, who finds himself, despite himself, facing life’s difficulties in a rather unusual way.
The problems arise from the fact that the protagonist’s father, driving home from a holiday in Florida, enters a stretch of road that is not yet open to the public, and once he runs out of petrol, he is left alone with his family.
The Kwimper family, consisting of the father, Toby, two terrible and mischievous twins (Eddy and Teddy), and the young babysitter (Holly), learn the art of making do as no one passes by on this road lost in the middle of nowhere for days.
The troubles continue, as they have to deal with the director of public works Mr. King, a gang of gangsters who, having sniffed out the possibility of doing what they want on state land, set up an illegal gambling den and, last but not least, the social services who want to take custody of the twins away from Mr. Kwimper senior.
In the end, everything works out for the best.
