Sandler’s not-quite-grown-up antics as a goofy uncle (he tells zany bedtime stories!) meet big-budget CGI (gladiators! outer space!) in Bedtime Stories, a family-friendly, life-affirming package (can Sandler save his family from financial peril?). And it’s all wrapped up for a Christmas Day release. Like Santa, Shankman (Hairspray) is under the gun to deliver on a tight deadline: ”There are so many effects, it’s crazy!”
