What If The Stories You Told Magically Came To Life?
Hotel handyman Skeeter Bronson's life is changed forever when the bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to mysteriously come true. He attempts to take advantage of the phenomenon, incorporating his own aspirations into one outlandish tale after another, but it's the kids' unexpected contributions that turn Skeeter's life upside down.
Skeeter grew up running a motel with his and and sisiter, when it was sold to a wealthy business man, the man promised that one day Skeeter could run it, but over time the promise was forgotten and Skeeter was still just a handyman. Enter in his niece and nephew and his world is set to change drastically.
This storyline is some good fun. Skeeter discovers that the parts of his bedtime stories with his niece and nephew are coming true, such as raining with gumballs and saving the damsel in distress. There are a few good laughs, Bugsby provides some good laughs as well as Brand's character. Upon first viewing I wished some of the 'come to life' parts had been more mysterious, but upon second viewing I thought it perfect just the way it is.
The acting is good, the kids are simply delightful. Keep an eye out as the usual 'cameo in an Adam Sandler movie' appear in the movie, I must say it is now one thing that I come to expect from an Adam Sandler movie. Everyone did their part in this movie well and so it was a delightful fil all around. We had 90% of the audience glued till the very end.
Such a fun movie that I'm hoping to own one day.
