Release Date: April 5, 2009 Movie Rating: PG Runtime: 99 Minutes Summary: Funnyman Adam Sandler stars in Walt Disney Pictures’ Bedtime Stories, the magical family comedy that’s packed with adventure and lots of heart. When Skeeter Bronson (Sandler) babysits his sister’s (Courteney Cox) children, his imagination runs wild as he dreams up elaborate bedtime stories always casting himself as the hero. Entranced, the children add their own ideas to these once-upon-a-time tales of heroics and chivalry. Then magic happens. These nighttime fantasies become Skeeter’s daytime realities, leading him on a real-life adventure in search of his own happy ending. Filled with colorful characters, humor and whimsy, this heartwarming comedy will enchant your entire family again and again.
This was an adorable movie. And it’s the first time I’ve seen Adam Sandler in anything that was actually made for kids (although I’m sure he has other stuff out there, but I haven’t seen it). And he was pretty clean, considering his other work. Also, I did not notice that Lucy Lawless was in the movie. She was one of the front desk clerks in the hotel but I thought that that character was the woman who played the mother in Beetlejuice. You probably have no idea what I’m talking about huh? Anyway…
I can’t really say what I liked or disliked about the movie. One thing I think they should have changed was how Skeeter (Sandler) always made himself the hero of his stories. It would have been nice to see him make one of the kids the hero or something. Would have made it more childlike or something. And the guinea pig with the huge eyes cracked me up. When I saw the trailers I thought it was something they did with a story, but he’s naturally like that. I suggest everyone get this movie. It’s very cute and your family will love it. My four year old has already overplayed it and I’ve only had it for a day.
