Skeeter Bronson’s life is changed forever when the bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start coming to life. Check out the adventurous comedy, Bedtime Stories, starring Adam Sandler.

The Promise

When Skeeter (Adam Sandler) was a young boy, his father owned a cozy motel. But money became tight, and his father was forced to sell the motel to Barry Nottingham, a budding businessman who planned to build a brand new hotel on the property. Sensing Mr. Bronson’s grief, Nottingham made him a promise: when Skeeter grew up and proved himself worthy, he could run the new hotel.

Hotel Handyman

About 30 years later, Skeeter still works at the hotel, but not as the manager. He’s the hotel handyman, dealing with broken TV’s and clogged toilets. Worst of all, Nottingham just made his daughter’s manipulative boyfriend the hotel’s new manager.


It’s Raining Gumdrops!

But Skeeter’s circumstances change when his sister Wendy goes out of town for a week and asks him to help her best friend, Jill, babysit. Each night he tells the kids a bedtime story. And by morning, the stories unfold in his own life. First it rains gumdrops. Then Nottingham gives him a chance to compete for the hotel’s management position.


The Kids Control the Story

When Skeeter realizes the power of the bedtime stories, he tries to use them to make his life better—he wants a shiny new car, a kiss from a pretty lady, and most importantly, the job as manager. But instead, he gets mugged, kicked by a little person and stung on the tongue by a bee! Why? Because the kids control the story!


The Bottom Line

Bedtime Stories is a fun family film. The movie explores outer space, the Wild West, the Medieval era with kings and peasants, and Ancient Greece where Sandler performs a daring jump with a Grecian chariot, just like Evil Knievel!

Adam Sandler is his usual goofy self. And Keri Russell (from Felicity) plays an adorable love interest. You’ll also recognize a few other characters—Courteney Cox Arquette, who starred as Monica Geller on the hit sitcom Friends, plays Skeeter’s sister Wendy; and Richard Griffiths, who plays Vernon Dursley in the Harry Potter films, plays Nottingham, the hotel’s owner.
