Bedtime STORIESby Eric Sloss, Writer     When you think of Adam Sandler, family comedies do not come to mind.  Most of his characters have ranged from angry immature men to angry immature men.  He has a comfort zone and it has treated him right over the years.  Acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson played off this persona to great effect in the vastly underrated “Punch-Drunk Love”.  In “Bedtime Stories”, he dials down the persona to good effect.   Adam is Skeeter Bronson, a hotel handyman whose father was a hotel executive.  Rich hotel owner Barry Nottingham (Richard Griffiths) has plans to build a new luxury hotel.  Skeeter desperately wants to run this new venture because he feels he is qualified with all the years he has lived in the current hotel.  His rival to this position is the scheming Kendall (Guy Pearce).  Kendall is one of those guys who would do anything to get ahead. »
