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 (Courteney Cox) children, his imagination runs wild as he dreams up elaborate bedtime stories always casting himself as the hero. Entranced, the children add their own ideas to these once-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.


Once upon a time, there lives a stand-up comedian called Adam Sandler who started his career with Saturday Night Live in 1990 and subsequently moves on to the movies. In 1998, the goofy comedian became an overnight Hollywood sensation when his star vehicle, "The Waterboy" becomes a huge hit, the following year Sandler founded his production company "Happy Madison" producing a string of comedic hits. The rest as they say is history.    

Produced under the Walt Disney banner, "Bedtime Stories" is Adam Sandler’s first foray into the family comedy genre which explains the mild PG rating in the States. The usual foul-mouth and R-rated comedian plays a hotel handyman Skeeter Bronson whose bedtime stories he told to his niece and nephew starts to become a reality. And now what Skeeter has to do is make use of this advantage to win the love of his life, Jill (Keri Russell) and also becomes the manager of a new hotel his boss is building.   

Most critics dismissed "Bedtime Stories" as bland and unimaginative when it was released in which this humble reviewer feels otherwise. In the spirit of the great old Walt Disney who inspires the plaque at the entrance of every Disneyland Parks 'Here You Leave Today And Enter The World Of Yesterday, Tomorrow And Fantasy' , "Bedtime Stories" is a reel example of it. There are no rules in the stories created by Skeeter and his sister’s children. It could be a Western theme story whereby a cowboy gets to rescue a damsel in distress, a romaction featuring a Greek gladiator named Skeeticus or a galactic space battle in the style of Star Wars. The execution is lively and all in the name of good fun. Perhaps this explains why you wouldn’t mind the cheesy CG effects and a constant bug-eye guinea pig named Bugsy that gets to hog the spotlight.

Boasting a terrific cast including Jonathan Pryce who narrates the movie, Guy 'cashing-a-paycheck' Pearce and Lucy 'Xena' Lawless as two fumbling villains, Keri Russell as the love interest Jill and Happy Madison regular Rob Schneider not forgetting British funnyman Russell Brand who hams it up as Skeeter’s bosom buddy Mickey. Our dear old Adam Sandler is cheeky and likeable as the good-heartened Skeeter Bronson (minus his usual style of offensive racy humour) who obviously had a great time bonding with his young co-stars.

Adam Shankman (Hairspray) turns in a surprisingly fun family movie and the Guy Pearce’s song and dance skit proves Pearce can actually sing as well as fellow Australian Hugh Jackman. It’s all about not giving up your dreams and your imagination is limitless and yes in the great grand old tradition of Walt Disney but presented in a more contemporary style.  


Until Gravity Do Us Part – A 4 minutes feature that touches on how the zero gravity space battle in the movie is filmed.

To All the Little People – The title is a bit misleading apparently it’s not about the dwarves but the two cutesy child actors.

It's Bugsy – Take a look behind-the-scenes on how the bug-eyed guinea pig is trained and created.

Deleted Scenes -  12 deleted scenes can be found here, some in fact are pretty funny.

Gag Reel – More fun stuff which runs at 7 minutes.

Dylan & Cole Sprouse: Blu-ray is Suite! – A Blu-ray promo reel featuring the adorable twins from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Magic in high definition.

Sneaks peek
including the upcoming Snow White DVD and UP theatrical trailer round up the extra features.


The dialogue is clear with a nice dynamic soundtrack during the story sequences. Colours transfer is bright, vivid and vibrant not surprisingly as this is a Disney production.
