Movie Review - Bedtime Stories

by Alex Popp

What if you told a bedtime story and the next day it came to life?

Only a valid question in the world of the clever family film "Bedtime Stories."

Adam Sandler stars as Skeeter Bronson, an ignored worker at a country famous hotel who learns that sometimes the happiest of endings aren't always what we'd expect. He has to babysit for his niece and nephew for a few days, telling them bedtime stories each night. He isn't much in the habit of doing this until the stories he tells them start becoming his daytime realities. Now he finds himself looking for his own "happy ending," hoping that maybe now he can be noticed.

This a very cute and family-friendly movie with a lot of good humor, sometimes you even explode with laughter. But it's also very optimistic with a mildly inspiring message. Although mainly aimed toward children, it's a film that kids, adults, and even teenagers can enjoy.

Rated PG for some mild language and some mild suggestive humor (the only Adam Sandler movie to recieve this rating).

Three stars for the thouroughly enjoyable, "Bedtime Stories," and, yeah, it's a good story to watch right before bedtime, just in my opinion.
