Some inventive visuals, but the plot is mediocre and the humor juvenile and often stale. All the performances feel pretty phoned in and uninspired.

Another perfectly mediocre Adam Sandler offering. The jokes are too few and too far between. It tries hard to be heartwarming but never feels like it has much heart. I think younger kids will like it, but adults will be disappointed.

Who doesn't want it to rain gumballs, or gummy bears or whatever else a kid can come up with. Although this wasn't the most brilliant movie all time, I thought it was cute and a fun family movie. It was a more 'grow-up' comedy role for Sandler, but to me a refreshing change for one movie.

Bedtime Nightmare

I now declare Adam Sandler's happy gilmore days are officially over. This one's probably the nail to his movie making coffin. I mean let us face it he's getting old and as he ages his jokes are becoming more annoying than ever. A good example is his latest Bedtime Stories, you see I'm a fan of his work and now I'm not anymore (remember Zohan). The only reason I went to see this is to witness a heartwarming Disney tale and (wait for it) that didn't happen. The jokes didn't work (Russell Brand mind-numbing humor), the characters are lame (specially Sandler's role which happens to be same every movie he's in) and the Bedtime stories are downright uninteresting. I know this is supposed to be a kidís movie but I just did not see myself laughing and enjoying this film even if I was to become 20...

I liked this movie, kinda. I thought it was funny but there of course were completely stupid parts. I honestly thought that weird gerbil hamster thing was the greatest, Bugsie. He was great. Kerri Russell did a good job, I think she's slowly coming back into Hollywood and this was a pretty good transition movie.

Yeah can see that.  But those are all old.  My personal favorite post Billy Madison is Punch Drunk Love. It was very odd but I really enjoyed it while most did not.
