Once upon a time, Adam Sandler was in an entertaining family movie. True story...
The thing about Bedtime Stories is that it is light, funny, easy to digest and all around great for the whole family.
It's just like any other Sandler's movies except this one doesn't contain any only-for-adults jokes.
It might not be the movie I'd recommend to someone who is in for something serious or something that is seriously funny, but this movie has got it all. There's comedy, slight drama and a lot of action; from cowboys to the outer space.
Great writing and great acting.
Really, there's nothing to complain. It's just a very entertaining family movie, which we don't get a lot these days.
I recommend Bedtime Stories to any Disney fans and also to anyone who'd enjoy Adam Sandler's movies, minus the sexual and dirty jokes.
