2.0 out of 5 stars waste of a great concept Aug. 4 2009
By Cheryl TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I expected more from Disney, but this film was boring and not entertaining. (I blame the Sandler-schtick which I wasn't expecting, so if you're a fan, you might actually like it.) This seemingly great concept was completely wasted, with lackluster writing and poor execution (however, given the title, 2 out of 3 viewers did fall asleep). The talented supporting cast are underutilized (especially Lucy Lawless), but Guy Pearce easily commands his scenes and is worth the watch. Also, there are no fun Disney dvd extras, only preview trailers. Overall, I tried but couldn't give a 1 & 1/2 star rating (so please don't have a 2 star expectation - it's not that good.)

Really not crude not bad language but still funny. Anyone taking thier children for a show should check this out.
I will definitely buy it on DVD

4.0 out of 5 stars Once Upon a Time or When Movies Were Simpler. April 2 2009
By tvtv3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Let's just clarify at the beginning. If you are looking to just own the movie, buy the less expensive regular BEDTIME STORIES DVD. However, if you or your family enjoys the special features that usually are included with movies, you'll want to purchase this, the DELUXE DVD EDITION of BEDTIME STORIES.

In 2008 Sandler starred in two movies. One (YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE ZOHAN) was a complete bust on all accounts. The other was BEDTIME STORIES, a film the critic meeting with mediocrity, but that was made major box office during the Christmas season. The film has a pretty decent story line with enough laughs for kids and adults and is actually quite family friendly (the movie was the first Happy Gilmore Production to receive a PG rating).

Sandler portrays Skeeter Bronson the son of a father (Jonathan Pryce) who attempted to fulfill his life dream of owning and operating a small hotel. However, Skeeter's dad just isn't a very good businessmen and ends up having to sell his hotel to Barry Nottingham (Richard Griffiths), but only on the condition that when Skeeter is grown that he will be made manager. The deal is struck and Nottingham tears down the quaint hotel and builds a luxurious, mega-hotel. He keeps Skeeter around as the head janitor, but soon forgets the promise he made. When Skeeter learns that Nottingham is going to be building a new hotel, he believes this is his big break, but then Nottingham announces his future son-in-law, Kendall (Guy Pierce) will be the manager of the new hotel. Skeeter is heartbroken. However, he does have other matters to occupy part of his time because his sister, Wendy (Courtney Cox) has to leave town for a job interview and asks Skeeter to watch over her kids, Patrick (Jonathan Morgan Heti) and Bobbi (Laura Ann Kesling), in the evenings and overnight. Wendy has already arranged for a friend of hers, Jill (Keri Russell) to watch the kids during the day but in the evenings she has classes to attend. Initially Skeeter is a bit hesitant with the kids and he absolutely abhors Jill. However, after an evening of bedtime stories the kids are hooked and bond is made between them. The next morning events from the bedtime story he told that night before begin to come true. Skeeter is amazed and then attempts to manipulate his nephew and niece ideas to allow his own dreams come true, but true to life, things don't exactly turn out the way he imagines.

I really enjoyed BEDTIME STORIES. The idea of the film is not exactly a new one, but it was done in a fresh and interesting way. The film has a great amount of family humor, with nothing too gross and very little crudity. The movie also has some very positive messages about family and living in a community. Bedtime stories can have a major impact upon children and I really enjoyed how the filmmakers used this concept as a way of strengthening the bonds between emotionally-distanced family members. Unlike some other recent Sandler projects, BEDTIME STORIES has no pretensions about being some kind of movie it isn't. It's just an enjoyable and quality family movie which also happens to be the best movie Adam Sandler has made in years.

The Deluxe DVD Edition of BEDTIME STORIES has the same movie and trailers as the regular DVD. However, as mentioned at the beginning, the Deluxe DVD Edition is the DVD you want to purchase if you like special features. The special features on this 2-disc set include the featurette "Until Gravity Do Us Part", which is a look at the special effects of the movie; "It's Bugsy"--a special look at the big-eyed and hearted guinea pig of the film; "To All the Little People"; a special look at Blu-ray entitled "Dylan & Cole Sprouse: Blu-ray is Suite"; bloopers, deleted scenes, and a few other surprises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, parents, it is SAFE March 8 2009
By L. Peary - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Yes, it is safe to take the kids to this one! The whole family enjoyed it. We had left the 14 year old at home, but will rent it as soon as it comes out so she can see it too. The message is positive, the innuendos few, and the theme is just plain fun. Even the "Paris" character keeps things mostly covered. Nice change for a 21st Century film.

The lead, though he starts out trying to manipulate life to go his materialistic ways, learns how to manipulate life to benefit all of those around him. He is just that kind of guy who never could have been the selfish fool. So, it really can be a great discussion starter for the family about morality, unselfishness, and proper behavior in community.

On top of all that deep stuff, it is just hilariously funny! There were even some applause at the end when we watched it in the theater. It has been a long time since I've been in a movie where the audience was moved to applause.

5.0 out of 5 stars bedtime stories July 18 2009
By dream factory - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
funnyman adam sandler stars in walt disney pictures bedtime stories the magical family comedy that's packed with adventure and lots of heart. when skeeter bronson sandler babysits his sister's couteney cox children his imagination runs wild as he dreams up elaborate bedtime stories always casting himself as a hero. entranced the children add their own ideas to these ouce upon a time tales of heroics and chivalry. then... magic happens. these nighttime fantasies become skeeter's daytime realities leading him on a real life adventure in search of his own happy ending. filled with colorful characters humor and whimsy this heartwarming comedy will enchant your entire family again and again.

Our 6 year okd daughter loved this sophisticated child/family oriented movie. Ususally in movies the dream time sequences happen to the children. Here the take is that the fantasy affects the adult. Sandler put forth anothre brilliant 'reluctant guru' performance.

2.0 out of 5 stars dis-ENCHANTED June 29 2009
By H. Bala - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't really think of Adam Sandler as a polarizing creature, but the prevailing sense seems to be that you're either in his camp or you're not, either you're entertained by his low brow, mush-mouth humor, or you're not. For me, it comes and goes. I've liked stuff of his in the past, really enjoyed The Wedding Singer - Totally Awesome Edition, The Waterboy, Big Daddy, Punch-Drunk Love (Single Disc Edition) and 50 First Dates (Widescreen Special Edition). But I've also cringed at LITTLE NICKY, MR. DEEDS, ANGER MANAGEMENT and now this one, BEDTIME STORIES. I had hopes for this one.

The cool premise is what drew me in. Adam Sandler plays yet another lovable underdog loser. Here, he is Skeeter Bronson, a lowly, ill-treated maintenance man toiling at the posh high-rise Sunny Vista Nottingham Hotel, which years ago used to be his pappy's humble hotel, before all the fancy remodelings. Skeeter visits his travel-bound sister (Courtney Cox) and is talked into babysitting her little boy and girl for a week.

His sister is one of those uptight broads who doesn't own a TV and reads to her kids from books like "Rainbow Alligator Saves the Wetlands" and "The Organic Squirrel Gets A Bike Helmet." Skeeter hasn't seen these kids in four years, what with the brother-in-law harboring a hate on for him, so there's some awkwardness in the air. Sis has banned TV and video games for her kids and feeds them crappalicious health foods. As a last recourse Skeeter begins to regale the children with his own invented bedtime stories - these tailored around his hapless life experiences - only to be startled when his fairy tales take on life and begin to impact his everyday reality. This being an Adam Sandler character, thoughts on how to capitalize on this magical phenomenon soon crop up. This being a Disney flick, the movie audience feels secure in that Skeeter will soon turn a corner and become that guy who does the right thing.

There's a subplot concerning an elementary school about to be demolished to make way for a fancy mammoth hotel. What are the odds that Skeeter's sister works at that school and that the projected hotel is actually a chain extension of the Sunny Vista Nottingham Hotel? Subtle are the inner workings of a Sandler flick.

Thing is, BEDTIME STORIES is one of the more kid-friendly flicks Sandler's ever been in, so from that angle, I guess I recommend it for the tiny tots. I do think they'll laugh themselves silly and, as usual with Disney, there are good family values to pick up on. However, the more sophisticated kids may turn their nose up at Sandler's predictable sense of humor - or not. It all depends on if you like potty jokes, dwarves kicking you in the shin or snot monsters slobbering all over you. Sandler is more restrained and does tone down the raunchy stuff, to merit that PG rating. And who would've thunk that I'd feel sorry for a defanged Sandler? And I guess, with the trend nowadays of injecting that hip, contemporary wink within all these fairy tale comedies, the film had to follow suit. But, unlike in Enchanted (Widescreen Edition), the SHREK flicks, and even Ella Enchanted (Widescreen Edition), the modern-day twists in the CG-heavy fairy tale sequences feel forced and unfunny, with Sandler's laziness stampeding over the film's few grace notes. And I couldn't help but feel that the guinea pig with the disturbingly huge saucer eyes was put in mostly as a running go-to gag, so that, if the kids aren't laughing - well, hey, kids, look at the funny-looking guinea pig!

Keri Russell comes in as Skeeter's co-baby-sitter and projected love interest, although there isn't much spark between the two actors. Following a certain romantic cliche, Sandler and Russell's characters are almost instantly at each other's throats and for much of the film engage in antagonistic banter, leaving me feeling lukewarm. Guy Pearce is over-the-top as the prissy, conniving hotel manager, although he does get a thumbs up for that one song and dance routine. Old Xena Warrior Princess herself, Lucy Lawless, is unrecognizable and wasted as the snooty assistant who hangs her star to Pearce's manager. Jonathan Pryce plays Skeeter's dad and Pryce is instrumental in nicely setting up the story, but then he disappears once Sandler comes into the picture. Courtney Cox is also wasted and not much in the film.

Also helping to sink the movie is that the fairy tale sequences come off as dull. There's a lack of wit and charm, and, after a while, a mind-numbing repetitiveness as we see the cast time and again play characters in Skeeter's self-absorbed fairy tale dramas. There's a scene early on in which Skeeter's cool dad states, "Your fun is only limited by your imagination." If only the screenplay writers had heeded their own advice. As it is, when I hear another line in the movie, this time coming from Sandler - "I'm like the stink on your feet -- I'll always be there." - I can't help but feel vaguely threatened.

On one hand, I liked Skeeter's ringtone, and I like that the flighty Paris Hilton type actually turns out to be an okay character. On the other hand, Rob Schneider makes his token appearance, and he's never been more unwelcome.

Maybe I've been too hard on INKHEART.
