In Bedtime Stories Adam Sandler gives his most bearable performance yet.
January 5, 2009
A fun idea turns into a so-so comedy thanks to an unappealing hero and variable performances from the well-known cast.

Sandler tames his jokes for family-friendly fantasy flick.

January 3, 2009
It's a little odd that making a film for children has almost made Adam Sandler grow up.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 2, 2009
Part live action, part animation, Bedtime Stories is relentlessly silly, kept buoyant by Sandler's zany cheer.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
January 1, 2009
The very definition of a disposable, kid-quieting fluff, done in a predictably Sandler way (read: watch out for Rob Schneider's umpteenth variation on the 'You can do it!' schtick).
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Everyone knows Sandler can be grossly funny; this movie proves he can be family friendly funny

Adam Sandler tones down his normally racy humor effectively, but the lightweight story is a one-note sidestep.

The twitchy anxiety that once powered his persona has given way to a doughy anonymity.
December 29, 2008
Russell Brand is absurd, funny and wonderfully out of place in a family movie. And hello: crazy pop-eyed animated guinea pig alert!

After sitting through this fractious fairy tale, we feel as plucked as a Christmas goose.
December 29, 2008
An innocuous but haphazard family comedy that seems less crafted for children than dreamed up by a team of them.
December 29, 2008
For a creative premise, it's downright dispiriting to see such a banal interpretation.

December 29, 2008
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.
December 29, 2008
It's a delightfully innocent movie that the actor can actually show to his two baby daughters without blushing.

December 29, 2008
Despite its flaws, Bedtime Stories has the charming, giggly spirit of an imaginative toddler.

Continuing on this trajectory, the much-maligned funnyman probably will create yet another generation of fans. And maybe even another generation of haters.

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.
