An Adam Sandler movie Disneyfied. Amazing how they did that! Perfect!
Verified purchase
Wow, an Adam Sandler movie Disneyfied. Amazing how they did that, but it was perfect! I loved it. Very cute. All the corny goofiness of Adam Sandler's comedy without the sometimes overboard low brow humor in his regular movies. With Adam Sandler movies, I either hate them or love them. Generally, the ones toned down from the low brow are my favorites. (Wedding Singer, 50 first dates, most of his movies with Drew Barrymore, The Cobbler, Mr. Deeds). I wish he would do more like this. I even like the 80's music in this movie. (aging myself now). This had a cute plot that was great for kids and great for adults who like Adam Sandler. I do recommend it if you also like Adam Sandler movies toned down a bit. : )

The imaginative element of the story-line was fun to watch as it developed. The crude humor could have been left out because it detracted from the film's overall message, but there wasn't too much of it in the film to have us stop watching to the end. The story followed predictable romantic comedy elements but when one wants a bit of escape from reality, it's always comfortable to watch a bit of predictability in a story. The maturing transformation of the main character is something Adam Sandler handled well, as he did in 50 First Dates.

Shocking representation of Native Americans
Verified purchase
The premise seemed really fun, and initially it was. Until the "Cowboys and Indians" story line. Actor Rob Schneider plays the Indian in full orange face paint with a crazy accent. Not an exaggeration. We immediately skipped that story line and had a conversation about representation. The rest of the movie was OK, but that portrayal of Native Americans is what grants this one star.

Fantastical Dreams Can Come True? Uh-Oh! Better watch what you wish for!
Verified purchase
Cannot say I'm a huge fan of Adam Sandler's funny little voices in general, but they are all appropriately played in this particular film, full of fun & fantasy as well as true-to-life conflicts (& resolutions). Our family has watched this film several times and we laugh just as hard each time at the outrageous antics played out from Skeeter's (Sandler) dreams in his real life.

PG rating is appropriate for some suggestive settings with one particular character, the hotel-owner's spoiled daughter, who dresses skimpily and acts inappropriately . . . also, plenty of "potty humor," though pretty tame compared to typical Sandler releases.

Overall, a super fun show! We quote it often.

Surprise from Sandler
Verified purchase
Surprisingly, Adam Sandler stars in a fantastic family movie, and he doesn't even seem out of his comfort zone. Threaded with great themes of honesty, justice, and especially family love in a broken home, this movie is definitely a deviation from Sandler's regular roles, but he is still his same funny self.

Summary: Skeeter Bronson, a maintenance man who, by all rights should be managing the mega-hotel he works at, is cajoled by his sister into babysitting the niece and nephew for a few days. When the bedtime stories he tells them begin coming true, he sees a way for him to realize his dream of managing the hotel. Of course, unforeseen consequences provide strange and hilarious happenings along his path.

Fun Movie
Verified purchase
Fun, family, fantasy movie with Adam Sandler being a little bit goofy. A "rom-com" with some goofy fantasy to lighten the mood.

Bedtime Surprise
Verified purchase
I am shocked if not embarrassed to report that this was a fun movie---great for the whole family---including my six year old boy who roared. Truthfully, my wife and I roared. I NEVER have been able to sit through one of Sandler's moronic, 1st-grade potty mouth movies---but this one was a perfect combination of his childish, low-brow comedy meets kids' movie. It was well written and put together very, very well! I was surprised to see it get ony 25% at Rotten Tomatoes (most everyone panned it.) What's odd about that is I am REALLY critical and dislike far, far more movies than any audience or critic. I'm fine with any movie (low brow to high brow) so long as it sticks to its own premise and concept. This one did. Judging from the basis of what this movie sets out to do, it does it, and it does it well. (I hope I don't regret this review...again, I can't believe I'm saying this...maybe I too was hexed by a bedtime dream come true.) BTW: If you don't have (or never had) kids...this probably is not a good watch. It's mostly an INSIDE laugh! I WISH Sandler would just sculpt his usual adult-movie nonsense into this venue--kids' movies! What a perfect fit!
