It's a little odd that making a film for children has almost made Adam Sandler grow up.

Part live action, part animation, Bedtime Stories is relentlessly silly, kept buoyant by Sandler's zany cheer.

Russell Brand is absurd, funny and wonderfully out of place in a family movie. And hello: crazy pop-eyed animated guinea pig alert!

That Skeeter benefits from what he does for his niece and nephew is an object lesson in responsibility and benevolence -- and it blesses the audience, too.

Leading man Sandler has done street-smart goofball a million times over, but the guy also knows how to play emotion.

Richard Griffiths best gets the antic spirit of this enterprise, relishing his multiple roles as Sandler's phobic boss and several fantasy characters.
