It is nice to see Adam Sandler rise back from the ashes, after the summers big disaster You Don't Mess The Zohan, it seems these days he can take a hit or a miss in strive.
The story centers around Skeeter(Adam Sandler), an down on his luck hotel repair man, is asked to babysit his sisters(Courtney Cox) kids at night, while her friend(Keri Russell) watches them during the day, while she goes away for a week at a few job interviews. One night before putting them to bed, he decides to tell them a made up depressing story, semi based on his own life, but the kids change it, and make it more happy. Then the next day, the events described in the made up fantasy, begin to start happening in real life. Is it just a strange case of Deja Vu, or is there something magical in the works?
Now imagined if Walter Mitty, fantasies actually start coming true. It's nice to see Adam Sandler not over perform with his comedy for once with his comedy. He has such funny one liners, and delivers them with perfect timing. And he and Keri Russell play off each other well. It's nice to see serious actor Guy Pearse play up against Adam Sandler, and he is also good as Sandlers nemesis. It has great effects also, and great slapstick too. A terrific magical tale for all ages.
