BED­TIME STO­RIES (2008) SEVEN, 6.30PM, G, FAM­ILY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Adam San­dler’s for­ays into com­edy have gen­er­ally been strictly for adults ( INow Pro­nounceYouChuckand Larry), so it’s nice to see the fun­ny­man back in some fam­ily friendly ter­ri­tory. San­dler is Skeeter, a handyman re­cruited by his sis­ter (Courteney Cox) to babysit her two chil­dren. In the hopes of bond­ing with the young­sters, he en­ter­tains them with made-up bed­time sto­ries, but once events in the tales start hap­pen­ing in re­al­life, he re­alises that the kids’ nar­ra­tive in­put has some sort of mag­i­cal effect. Co­me­dian Rus­sell Brand stands out in a cast of sub­stan­tial ac­tors, in­clud­ing Keri Rus­sell, Guy Pearce and Teresa Palmer. ★★
