my week at the movies: ‘Bedtime Stories’

Just one movie this week, my last movie for the year (not counting the piles of screeners I’ll be spending the holiday weeks plowing through before I have to finalize my nominations ballot for the Online Film Critics Society awards). I’m dreading it because it’s Adam Sandler, but maybe Bedtime Stories (opens wide in the U.S. on December 25, and in the U.K. on December 26) won’t be completely unbearable. Some of the other cast is awesome: Guy Pearce, Lucy Lawless, Jonathan Pryce. I’m guessing they’re in some of the stories Sandler magically brings to life. I dunno, though: the idea of Sandler being magical kinda gives me the creeps. And though director Adam Shankman is responsible for the very good Hairspray and “Prop 8: The Musical,” he also gave us Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and The Pacifier, which surely must be among the very worst movies ever made.
