Bedtime Stories :- Adam Sandler (Skeeter Bronson) works at a hotel as a repair guy and dreams of becoming the hotel manager one day. His sister played by Courtney Cox goes to look for a new job, leaving her son and daughter with Adam. Adam in his attempt to get along well with his niece and nephew, starts telling them bedtime stories just like his father used to do for him. But the fun begins when these stories start coming true in real life.
It is an entertaining family movie with comedy and little fantasy. Adam Sandler was his usual self. It was nice to see Courtney after so many days even if in a small role. The concept is new and presented nicely. One time watch for people who enjoy short, funny and feel good Disney movies and for kids under parental guidance.
Marley & Me :- John Grogan (Owen Wilson) and his wife Jenny (Jennifer Aniston) are two reporters who move to Florida and get jobs in two different newspapers. When John realizes that Jenny is thinking about having a child, he gets a Labrador puppy instead on the advice of his friend and colleague Sebastian (Eric Dane). But the cute new born puppy turns out be a naughty, out of control and incorrigible dog. Or as John puts it “The world’s worst dog”. But is he that bad? Should the couple leave him because he is hard to handle?
Its a story of a couple becoming a family, a story of their marriage, career ambitions, sacrifices, emotions and above all love that binds it all. Jennifer has acted better than Owen. The story is simple without any twists or suspense. The humor is there only in the first half. Basically its all emotional drama. It is a touching family movie and a must watch for those who have pets or love dogs.
