Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It descends into pathos, undermined by an insipid romantic subplot and the usual platitudinous guff about self-belief."
‑ Tom Huddlestone, Time Out
"An innocuous but haphazard family comedy that seems less crafted for children than dreamed up by a team of them."
‑ Dan Kois, Washington Post
"There's nothing fresh in Sandler's role that you haven't seen in almost every movie he's ever done -- the same mumbly, underachiever-schlub notes he's been hitting for years, only taken down a notch for his first PG-rated comedy."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"...ultimately comes off as the most entertaining Adam Sandler comedy to hit theaters since 2004's 50 First Dates..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Given that Sandler's main appeal has always been to the 12-year-old in all of us, it probably makes sense for him to aim his movies directly at that age group."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"The twitchy anxiety that once powered his persona has given way to a doughy anonymity."
‑ Tim Grierson, L.A. Weekly
"For a creative premise, it's downright dispiriting to see such a banal interpretation."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"A family-friendly Adam Sandler movie that, even with its strained plot developments, is tame without being lame."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Enjoyable, silly and a wee bit whimsical. It's also treacherously predictable at times, the two leads lack chemistry and it has the token horrible Rob Schneider cameo."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"A big step backward for director Adam Shankman ('Hairspray')."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"After sitting through this fractious fairy tale, we feel as plucked as a Christmas goose."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"It's a delightfully innocent movie that the actor can actually show to his two baby daughters without blushing."
‑ Daniel Getahun, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"If you are forced to attend, then at least Bedtime Stories is tolerable, and occasionally fun -- when it forgets to be dumb."
‑ Andrew Osmond, SFX Magazine
"The real charm of Bedtime Stories is how it works as a family film."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Bedtime Stories lacks the required thrills, imagination, comedy and drama required to be a truly entertaining family film."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
