Bedtime Stories (2008, USA) C-99m. SCOPE ** D: Adam Shankman. Starring Adam Sandler, Keri Russell, Guy Pearce, Courtney Cox, Lucy Lawless, Jonathan Pryce, Carmen Electra, Rob Schneider. Feel-good Disney movie about janitor Sandler, who works for his father's hotel business but it now belongs to someone else. One day his sister Cox asks him to look after her kids, and when every bedtime story they concoct together comes true, Sandler sees a way to change his sullen life. Not completely believable, but fairly entertaining and warm-hearted. Okay family fare.
