Bedtime stories provides a fantastic route to escapism. I love watching the 'real-life' interpretations of the children's stories (e.g. the gum balls falling from an up-ended truck, making it look like it was raining).
I'm not normally a fan of Adam Sandler, but I think he was brilliant in this. He didn't go over the top or too silly. My friend's 7 year old daughter loved the guinea pig- she squealed with delight whenever it appeared on screen! Russell Brand was perfect as the oddball friend-cum-dream-sidekick.
All in all a great family film, or one for twentysomethings wanting a little break from reality.
