Already a B.O. success in Sweden, this mix of “The Money Pit” and “Home Alone” is amiable entertainment for the moment, strictly for local use. Traveling opportunities are slim.

Leading man Bjorn Skifs is a popular singer/entertainer/actor, and his films are always centered around his sympathetic character. In “The Dream House,” he plays a family man who buys an old house.

Abode, however, turns out to be in more than urgent need of repair and, along the lines of “The Money Pit,” Skifs soon loses both his job and his family. He also discovers that a band of burglars is searching the house for something they’ve hidden there, and when he decides to strike back at them, pic becomes a clone of “Home Alone.”

First part is the most satisfying, with Skifs coping with workmen demanding more and more money. The “battle scenes” are less interesting, especially when they take on a touch of unnecessary sadism.

Tech credits are fine, as is most of the acting.
