Movie Review; Bedtime Stories8:59 AM
We had heard about this movie when it came out and it seemed cute, but you can tell so little from trailers these days. I have to say, out of the movies I have watched this year, this one has to be one of my favorite.
The basic plot is that a young man, who has grown up with the promise of someday running the hotel he works at, is still just the lowly mechanic. When his sister need to go out of state to look for a job, she leaves her two kids with him. Not knowing how to handle these kids, he tells them amazing and fantastical bedtime stories. In funny ways the bedtime stories come true and change his life.
My family laughed our way though this film, it was probably the best family film’s we have seen in a long time. It kept all of us entertained from Dad to my ten year old sister.
Okay, now for a list of things that you might want to think about. There is one girl that dresses in immodest clothes but the scene with her in them are brief. There is one creature in the last bedtime story that some little kids may find scary, although even in our house where we have some kids that get scared easily they found it more gross than scary (they do it in a silly manner). Lastly, there is a little bit of crude humor, but not much.
On the plus side it has some good moral lessons embedded in it like; just because a girl is pretty doesn’t mean she is the best. He doesn’t start throwing punches just because the bad guy gets on his nerves.
Have a fun filled day!
