Matt’s Movies: “Bedtime Stories” Is Funniest Movie This Year
by Matt Marble
When Adam Sandler first appeared on Saturday Night Live in the 80’s, it was clear that he was going to become a great comedic actor.
He has stayed strong since then with films like Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, and The Longest Yard.
Now he stars in Disney’s “Bedtime Stories” as Skeeter Bronson, a happy-go-lucky hotel handyman who dreams of one day running the establishment that his father built.
But when the current owner informs him that the job will go to his arch enemy Kendall (Guy Pearce), he feels like all he’s worked for has been flushed down the toilet. Then his sister Angie (Courtney Cox) has a business trip and asks Skeeter to watch his niece and nephew for a couple days. This seems like his worst nightmare, but when the stories he tells them actually start to come true, Skeeter sees this as an opportunity to help his situation.
I had a feeling going into this film it was going to funny and…I was right.
Filled with tons of laughs and great chemistry, this has been the funniest movie I have seen this year! And with this film being a made by Disney, you can be sure that it’s kid friendly.
Adam Sandler makes a great role model in this movie by showing children that happy endings aren’t just for fairy tales.
