Every movie need not necessarily blow your mind away. There can be some that simply keep you entertained and that's all. Skeeter Bronson (Sandler) works in a ultra-luxurious hotel as a handyman. His father once owned that very hotel but due to financial troubles he had to sell it to a friend who gave him a verbal promise of eventually allowing Skeeter to run the hotel. Barry Nottingham (Griffiths) has decided to not live up to his word that he gave to his friend and Skeeter continues to remain as the handyman, hoping that his hard work would eventually pay off some day. When Skeeter's sister Wendt (Cox) asks him to babysit her two children whilst she was out of a town for a few days, Skeeter doesn't realise that this would change his life forever. The bedtime stories that he used to narrate to the children every night, started coming true in reality and he realised that he could probably use these stories to make his life much better. The movie is very typically made for the young and could only possibly appeal to their mindset. Adam Sandler is funny, but not all and out funny. It is good enough for the audience it is conceived for and is a decent family entertainer.
Thumbs up: Great entertainer
Thumbs down: Sandler could be more funny
