Bedtime Stories

Bedtime Stories

Another year and another Adam Sandler movie is out for many to enjoy, mainly families and kids this time.  Bedtime Stories is basically about Adam Sandler’s niece and nephew who have the power to make their bedtime stories come to life.  Of course, once Sandler’s character realizes this he tries to use it to help him gain his dream job that he was promised.

The movie is cute, funny, and a typical Sandler movie.  All of his usual cast returns in minor roles.  I was, however, shocked to see Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential, Memento) in this movie because he was never shown in any of the previews. He sure has fallen from L.A. Confidential.  The jokes are tailored for kids, but adults will enjoy them too. I mean, who doesn’t like a guinea pig with gigantic cow eyes.

Overall I wouldn’t pay full price here but it is a good Netflix rental for those that were considering that.


Additional Review:  For this movie, May and I headed to the AMC Fork & Screen, once known as the Buckhead Backlot.  Recent renovations had been performed and I was interested in the update.  I have to say this theatre made the right changes.  New seats, better looking theatre, nice updated bar in the lobby, etc.  For those that don’t know, the concept for this theatre is “dinner and a movie.”  The screen is smaller and servers walk the room serving food and drinks during the movie.  The food isn’t the greatest or the most expensive, but it is a nice way to combine the two (dinner and movie) into one event.  I wouldn’t go to the Fork & Screen for an epic movie, but small comedies are great.  I did like the addition of a button at your seat to call the server over instead of having to try to get his/her attention in the dark.  Overall, the changes make for a better experience and I will be heading back again.
