BEDTIME STORIES (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Bedtime Stories
—an Adam Sandler story—is whimsical with light presentation and touchdown on the power of words to come to life, especially words spoken before drifting off to sleep. While this is not Adam Sandler’s best work, it still becomes worth a watch and can be a good background flick for parties. While the original trailers for the film focused on the sky raining gumballs, do not expect those kind of unique and spectacular special effects throughout the movie.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. While the movie seems a low-budget B-grade film, it still has value especially for children that qualify for the movie’s rating.
