What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Annette Bayne This is a light-hearted children's film and younger children will probably enjoy the adventure and the comedy, but generally one is left feeling a little let down at the end.
Ivan Sadler Adam Sandler plays yet another emotionally stunted cretin in this tedious fable about a loser who tells magical stories.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The first PG family comedy starring Adam Sandler.
Nick Flanagan Bedtime Stories isn’t quite enough for adults to bother with unless accompanied by kids, but the CGI hamster is less irritating than I thought it would be, and the vehicle creeps by on silliness and charm.
Peter Travers Sortage of wit and the excess of goo.
C. Fuchs If there's one lone positive thing I can say about the film, it's that it will make you want to rush out and see The Princess Bride once again to prove that filmmakers can make smart, funny and engaging movies about imaginative bedtime stories.
Tomatometer Though it may earns some chuckles from pre-teens, this kid-friendly Adam Sandler comedy is uneven, poorly paced, and lacks the requisite whimsy to truly work.
