I feel bad for Adam Sandler in this movie so I'll give it twice as many stars as it gave me laughs.

This movie is just Adam Sandler being Adam Sandler. In other words, IT'S BAD! The story doesn't make sense, and the jokes weren't funny.

It's a fun idea, but Bedtime Stories doesn't seem to know what to do with it and Sandler is on autopilot.

A movie you can watch with your child 6+ entertaining for him and not suicidal for you.

Watched this with my fiance. She loves children's movies. Definitely not saying I've grown up, but I generally avoid kiddie films. This was no sillier than any other Adam Sandler movie of the last 15 years despite having several fantastical stories dreamed up by two kids and Sandler's usual laid back, wise assed but well meaning character. I surprised myself by liking this. It's not laugh out loud funny but I caught myself smiling through most of it. The language and dick jokes have been cleaned up compared to Sandler's usual output although it managed to squeeze out a fart joke. Fine by me, I'm as low brow as they come. An enjoyable, good hearted film for all ages.

Ah yeah, I remember seeing the trailer back in 2008 and wanting to see it. 8 years later, through the magic that is the internet, I finally got my wish. And I gotta say, for a film collaboration between one of the best film industries in the world (Disney) and one of the worst (Happy Masion), it's... nice. I mean, it loses some points for Skeeter being kind of an assh- oh wait, this is a Disney movie, I mean, jerk in the beginning, Rob Schneider making three cameos, it being hardly the greatest movie ever and throwing all logic out the window in the climax (then again, this IS a Disney movie, so that goes without saying), but as far as children movies go, it's not bad. it does its job fine and kids will be entertained by it, and maybe some adults will get a chuckle or two out of it (I know I did). Besides, considering the main actor and his company's record, it could've been worse.

Good but a little silly but at least it's different to what Adam usually does and the kids will love it too.

Adam Sandler Doesn't deserve to be in a disney movie,
It makes a disney movie absolutely shit!
This Also Had Russell Brand who is bad enough...
One good thing about this movie is this didn't have rob Schneider.

Score: 2.5/10

this movie might not be so funny now but it's meant for kids and I loved it as a kid

For this Disney movie Russell Brand's humor is (if we can compare it to salsa) mild and not fiery hot.  Adam Sandler is given a tremendous supporting cast in this flick which consists of Keri Russell, Russell Brand, (Hot) Lucy Lawless and Courtney Cox-Arquette
and I think they are what add to the humor.  This movie was funny and not too laden with the wholesomeness Disney usually shoves down our throat.  In the end I recommend this one.

Adam Sandler fails to Disneyify himself by giving a film with his awkward humor and a good premise wasted.
May 28, 2016
While the idea sounds really good for a kids movie, it fails to use that idea smartly, and all you are left with is a badly paced movie, and a not-so-great story.

What shines in this film, are the actual story sequences that while very silly, are also very imaginative. This movie is very underrated in my opinion, it's a lot better than most of Adam Sandler's recent efforts. It's clever and funny and I was invested in the unique premise. It does rely on a lot of immature humor but overall it's a sweet movie that I personally had a good time with.

Has laughs, but same stuff as always

Maybe one of Adam Sandler's least ridiculous movies, but just as bad as the other ones. Actually, if you think about it, it actually is just as ridiculous

An incredibly amusing film at times, an incredibly dull one at others. I really didn't feel that Adam Sandler made this movie any better. The one things that brings this movie to it's feet is the funny and interesting concept.

Pretty good comedy Adam Sandler plays a pretty good character in this movie but not a perfect movie How the kids control the dreams that come in real life but other then that I love it so much a good family comedy I can watch this over and over really really funny
