Bedtime Stories, It's a must watch!



Still remember Adam Sandler?? Yep, he is a guy who acts in 50 First Dates. Now, we can see his stupid action in "Bedtime Stories". "Bedtime Stories" is recommended as a comedy, family, and fantasy movie. Well, I wouldn't like to tell the synopsis, I'm trying to analyze the similarities between this and other movies. Hehe.

Family and Comedy
Hollywood's movies mostly consist of family and comedy genres. For example, have you seen "The Pacifier" and "Yours, Mine, and Ours"? In these movies, there is a family, which has so many children. Their naughtiness is totally unstopable. Even though they are so naughty, but, what-they-do becomes a joke, so we can laugh and enjoy their naughtiness in the movie. Besides that, the adults always try and find a way to look after the children.

In "The Pacifier", Vin Diesel gets a job and agrees to take care of the children. Vin Diesel should stay with them during one month. Since their naughtiness, he never succeeds in looking after the children, but finally he makes the children so calm.

Or, maybe, have you ever watched "Yours, Mine, and Ours"? If you've ever watched this movie, didn't you see that there were 18 children? Haha, sounds crazy, right? Could you imagine how the parents could take care all of them in a house everyday? The movie tells how Helen and Frank are high school sweethearts, they reconnect at a reunion, and fall in love again. But, they face up a new problem, they should set up a big happy family (with 18 children!). Haha.

Now, we discuss "Bedtime Stories". In "Bedtime Stories", Adam Sandler should take care of his nephew and niece (Bobbi and Patrick) while their mom leaves the town. So, Adam Sandler always looks for new ways to look after Bobbi and Patrick in everynight. Eventually, he decided to tell bedtime stories everynight. Suprisingly, Bobbi and Patrick begin to bring their ideas about the continuity of those stories and the stories turn out to become in a real life. Sounds silly, doesn't it?

Another thing that you can find between these movies..an animal! "The Pacifier" has a duck. In "Yours, Mine, and Ours", you can find a cute pink pig! Of course, "Bedtime Stories" has BUGSY! Bugsy is such a little cute marmoot whose eyes are so big!


Fantasy
Have you ever seen "Bridge to Terabithia"? "Bridge to Terabithia" is about the briliant imagination of Jesse and Leslie. Yup, Jesse and Leslie always discuss their imagination. Finally, their own city is made from their imagination, and they call that city "Terabithia". In "Bedtime Stories", Bobbi and Patrick always imagine how the story should go. In fact, their imagination is so silly and funny. So, "Bedtime Stories" is a wonderful fantasy to see.

That's my explanation about the similarities between "Bedtime Stories" and other movies. Well, I want to thank to my fellows in campus (Hadi, Nova, and Dodi), who have already asked and accompanied me to watch at Setiabudi 21. Thanks for hanging out with me guys!
