On the first night that Skeeter keeps the kids, when he is saying "goodnight" and turns out the lights, we see Bobby roll over onto her stomach. However, in the next shot we see her on her back (shrugging her shoulders). See more »
You, truth or dare?
How old were you the first time you kissed a girl?
Patrick never kissed a girl.
Girls are ick, except for Tricia Sparks.
Ohh, this Tricia Sparks, is she a girl in your class?
Aunt Jill, did you get our message?
Yes I did, and now it is time for you to get ready for school. Oh my gosh you are...

I have never been an Adam Sandler fan as he seemed to be an actor for humor geared towards teens...but I really enjoyed this movie. I took my 4 year old to see it and didn't expect to like it as much as I did. This is THE perfect family movie that is funny and magical and a bit silly. It actually can be enjoyed by all ages in the family...even the teenagers. Sometimes we all need to relax and laugh and imagine. Bedtime Stories does that. I left the theater feeling like I had spent my money well on this movie. I recommended the movie to my teens and other families. Unless you are the over-serious type, you won't be disappointed.
