Adam Sandler (You Don’t Mess with the Zohan) shares the movie screen with Keri Russell (Waitress), Guy Pearce (Traitor), Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Courtney Cox Arquette (“Friends”) in Bedtime Stories, a touching comic fable of an underdog whose fortune finally changes.
As the handyman at the hotel his father used to own, Skeeter Bronson (Adam Sandler) spends his days changing light bulbs and competing with the hotel’s smarmy manager (Guy Pearce) for the attention of the new owner’s beautiful, partying daughter, Violet (Theresa Palmer). When Skeeter’s sister Wendy (Courteney Cox) asks him to babysit her two kids for a week while she’s out of town, Skeeter entertains his niece and nephew with elaborate, original bedtime stories that transport them to exotic locales like ancient Greece, the Wild West and outer space. As he tells one outlandish tale after another, it’s the kids’ unexpected contributions that turn all of their lives upside down. Full of imaginative special effects and good-natured hilarity, Bedtime Stories is a winning combination of comedy and adventure.
