The first family film produced by Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions. It received a PG rating whereas all previous entries were PG-13 or R. See more »
Near the beginning of the movie when Skeeter goes to his sister's house for her daughter Bobbi's birthday, Skeeter mistakes Patrick to be Bobbi, presumably due to the "boyish" sounding name. However when Wendy's best friend Jill shows up and is talking to Skeeter outside of the house, the present she has with her is wrapped in very "boyish" wrapping paper with basketballs and footballs all over it.

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.
