      Sandler and no script make this a nightmare

      By Rick Bentley | MCT

      If you look closely at Bedtime Stories, it's almost possible to see how the
      cast and crew made up the movie as the shoot progressed. There's certainly
      no evidence of a script. It's just a series of nonsensical events
      sporadically anchored by reality.

      Maybe if the movie were funny, no one would notice the lack of direction.

      Adam Sandler plays a hotel handyman who discovers that elements of the
      bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew are coming true the following
      day, and decides to use this gift to get his dream job.

      Director Adam Shankman should stick to musicals like Hairspray, a format
      that allows him to take the action over the top without looking stupid. But
      Shankman didn't make this mess on his own. Sandler, for example, makes room
      in the movie for buddy Rob Schneider, whose portrayal of a American Indian
      is the most offensive since F Troop was on the air in the 1960s.

      If nothing else, Bedtime Stories lives up to its name. It can certainly put
      you to sleep.
