Dreams are the funny pictures you see inside your head while you are sleeping. Most of the times they involve sex. Dreams that have an adverse or frightening effect on the dreamer are referred to as nightmares. Oddly, these too are usually about sex.

The content and purpose of dreams are not fully understood, though they have been a topic of speculation and interest throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is known as oneirology.

Dreams plays an important role in movie fiction, as they provide a convenient vehicle for plot and character exposition, recapping events from previous installments and foreshadowing future events. They may also be used as filler material if a particular script does not meet the required running time for a particular film.
