About this deal

Sandler’s best friend and confidant in the end of the movie wears a hula skirt with a top piece on his chest like a women’s 2 pc. I don’t know what that was about. Oh yes, this movie has the wonderful added feature of women strolling about in bikinis, tawdry outfits, and air-headed attitudes. This adds a nice dimension. After the movie you can spend an hour or so trying to de-program your young girls from the idea that they are sexual objects whose bodies are to be freely displayed, flaunted, and commercialized. Don’t forget to remind them that they have brains in their heads and that men should remember that as well. Bedtime Stories (2008) - IMDb". IMDb. Archived from the original on 2021-01-25 .

If you are still reading this review after all of this negativity, two positive things I can say are that it was refreshing to see that the couples actually got married, at least keeping the value of marriage, and the bit about the bedtime stories the kids’ overprotective mother read to them was really funny.Calvin reaffirming each New Year's Day that he's not changing anything about himself because he's already perfect, as well as being disappointed with the new year being exactly like the old year. One thing I LOVED about “Bedtime Stories” was that the lead characters were trying to do the right thing. When Skeeter told the kids that life had no happy endings, his sister took him to task for it. When the champagne thing was mentioned, or when he wanted money as a reward, the kids set him straight. When the dad took off, and the kids wondered about that, Skeeter touchingly told the kids their dad must have some kind of “mental malfunction” to not want to spend every moment with them. They are flawed and broken characters, but trying to do the right thing, and I appreciated that.

Calvin trying to get out of doing some assignment or test at school and getting into huge trouble in the process. Calvin's obscenely long wish-lists and letters to Santa Claus, usually asking for ridiculously unsafe items like grenade launchers or atomic bombs.Other than that, I don’t really think this movie is good for anyone because you have to sit through all of the bad stuff for a tiny bit of good, but if you really want to see it I would wait until it comes to your local library so you can get it for free and not waste your money on renting it. Also make sure you go to the closest library possible so that you don’t waste too much money on the gas it takes to get there. Hobbes not getting anything on Christmas, as well as his tendency to not want for anything, to Calvin's confusion. On the flip side, “Bedtime Stories” reaches deep into the biblical sense of “do unto others,” and loving and respecting your fellow man in a gentle, subtle heartwarming way, that shows renewed hope that films such as these can take off once again in Hollywood. The children were allowed to be children and not run around like little miniature adults cussing and being disrespectful of others. Skeeter was allowed to be a loving man and his wisdom was taken as fact and a gentle strength, not boo hoo’d as a weakness. The moral lessons of treating the one’s you love with kindness and compassion, giving much for a friend, sacrificial love, and doing what is right in a situation even though it might mean hurt on your part was a refreshing change in direction for children’s film. It not only shows these afore mentioned qualities in a positive tone, but also does a good job of showing the negative consequences when we act out of greed, selfishness and pride. On a similar note, Calvin calling the library, a hardware store, or some other business asking for something ridiculous and getting told off.

Calvin also trying to reason (particularly close to Christmas) that every time he's been bad was never actually his fault, it was extenuating circumstances that pushed him to do it, or it's society's fault for considering what he does "bad". Calvin espousing the greatness of television in terms that make it clear Watterson is lambasting it. Other notable running gags include Calvin's annual struggle to be "good" enough in December to avoid the wrath of Santa, Calvin being ambushed by Hobbes at moments when he least expects it, and of course Calvin's alter egos. I am very happy to say it was a sweet, funny (in a kid’s potty humor sort of way), exciting, magical fun ride all the way through! A perfect, holiday family movie and I, as a Christian Mom, would take my family to see it without worry as to whether I need to cover my kid’s eyes and ears during certain scenes. A PG rated Sandler film which is a joy to watch. Another minor one is Calvin attempting to fly, such as with construction paper feathers, a blanket parachute, or as a human kite.

Now for the three charges leveled against the film: name calling, immodest attire and using the Lord’s name in vain. As quoted in "First Look: Behind the scenes of Hollywood's biggest projects," Entertainment Weekly 1025 (December 12, 2008): 9.

As the title refers, “Bedtime Stories” is just that. A set of bedtime stories spun by a wayward handyman employed at a major Hotel chain, who over the course of a week has to babysit his sister’s two children while she looks for work out of town. During that week some pretty unexplainable things happen as each bedtime story transforms from nightly fairy tale into daily real life events. Also, I do not like the lazy plot device of putting a bunch of kids near a building that is about to be blown up, and then two little kids wander in to the building. It is unlikely that there would be a demolition that is not properly fenced off or one that would have a bunch of kids at it. But almost blowing up kids shows an underlying disdain for kids. These writers could do better. The whole story seems lazy and half-baked. …If you see it, rent it don’t buy it. It definitely will offend some parents and people with small kids. Negative—This movie is inane (as are most Adam Sandler movies… or for that matter, most movies geared toward children). It offers no deep substance or real moral character. It is not delightfully fanciful. It is vaguely fanciful with a propensity for idiocy. Bedtime Stories". American Film Institute. Archived from the original on October 28, 2021 .

Surprise!Neutral—This movie had some funny moments and a lot of rude moments, but mostly it seems disjointed. The director is not good, sometimes the movie seemed like it was thrown together. Adam Sandler is very talented, but the director is not. This comment is not about the movie, but about safety issues glossed over in sloppy filmmaking. There is one scene where Sandler’s character Skeeter makes a sandwich with toothpaste, it turns out eating flouride toothpaste instead of spitting it out can be dangerous. So caution to parents.
