Wondering what film to see come Christmas? Well, we've already taken a look at both Valkyrie and Benjamin Button, so now its time to have an early look at Bedtime Stories.

Bedtime Stories Reviewed

Some of the first official reviews have surfaced for Bedtime Stories and they claim that the Adam Sandler comedy, though targeting a younger age group, still has all the laughs to guarantee box office gold.

Not long ago, it would have been inconceivable to see the words "Adam Sandler" and "Disney family film" in the same sentence, but parenthood does strange things to people. With "Bedtime Stories," Sandler has delivered on his promise to make a movie his kids can enjoy. What's more, he's managed to do so without alienating his core audience. While the comedy -- about a hotel handyman whose outlandish tales spring to life -- clearly skews to a younger demo, there's enough sophomoric humor here to reassure the Sandler faithful. Combo of Sandler regulars plus family audiences augurs well for a B.O. happy ending.

Hollywood Reporter
While not being pitched exclusively as a Christmas movie, "Stories" makes a better Christmas movie than those generic comedies manufactured this time of year. The hits-to-misses ratio for its gags is above average, the sentimentality is kept in check and the film plays well to its audience. It winks nicely at parents and smiles broadly to children. Disney might have a Christmas hit with this late-arriving sleigh ride.
