Bedtime Stories (2008)
Critic Consensus: Though it may earns some chuckles from pre-teens, this kid-friendly Adam Sandler comedy is uneven, poorly paced, and lacks the requisite whimsy to truly work.

Critic Reviews for Bedtime Stories
It descends into pathos, undermined by an insipid romantic subplot and the usual platitudinous guff about self-belief.
The twitchy anxiety that once powered his persona has given way to a doughy anonymity.
After sitting through this fractious fairy tale, we feel as plucked as a Christmas goose.
An innocuous but haphazard family comedy that seems less crafted for children than dreamed up by a team of them.
For a creative premise, it's downright dispiriting to see such a banal interpretation.
Audience Reviews for Bedtime Stories
Very sweet and funny movie. Adam has to babysit his niece and nephew. He reads them bedtime stories which come true, so he tries to get them to tell stories that will help him in real life, such as getting a friend and the job at the hotel that he was promised. Full of fun - castles, cowboys, gladiators, aliens and mermaids. Good cast.
Well I was expecting or hoping for a witty, sarcastic Sandler film but alas as it turns out this IS actually for kids. Its very tame, very silly and childish...its for kids haha Nothing wrong with the film atall, a nice gentle story with fantasy elements and nice visual effects, kids will enjoy it im sure. Apart from some very nice looking girls there isnt too much for the adults. Russell Brand makes his film debut (I'm guessing) here, I was horrified to see him but there you go, he wasn't too bad actually, shows he can be a normal person instead of a prat. Take the family.
The movie's premise is more interesting than the movie itself. It's a bit too kid friendly to be classed as a family movie and essentialy its another unfunny Adam Sandler flick.
