Cast / crew
Hotel handyman Skeeter Bronson has to look after his niece and nephew for a few days and finds that the bedtime stories he tells them have a way of coming true in the real world.
Unsatisfactory Adam Sandler fantasy comedy largely thanks to not fulfilling the potential of the premise. This could have been a wonderfully clever movie as the real world paralleled the bedtime story world but it seems that nobody gave it the time and thought it needed. Making Sandler’s awesomely named Skeeter Bronson start off as uncharacteristically rude to Keri Russell (how could anyone?) was a mistake as it crushes that story arc before it begins. That said, what’s left is entertaining and funny enough. Just not convincing.
This movie contains mild bad language and mild unpleasant scenes, mild fantasy violence and mild sensuality.
Classified PG by BBFC. Parental Guidance.
