Bedtime Stories—in the morning

My bus stop had a colorful new poster this morning. While I’m usually too groggy to pay attention to the street-side adverts, this one made me think of my dad and the crazy stories he used to tell me and my brother.

The poster is for a new movie called Bedtime Stories, where apparently the kids come up with story ideas that actually come true. Can’t say that that ever happened to me, but I might just go see this one for the fun of it.

Did any of your parents tell you stories? Do you tell stories to your kids? Here’s a trailer for the film, FYI http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/bedtimestories/

That looks like it could be fun! I'll have to look for it. I love light, silly movies.

In a world where we all take ourselves pretty seriously, it is good to have some lightness -- for sure! How about bubble gum balls raining down on ya? Found this still shot from the film...pretty fun eh?

Hmmm, Adam Sandler huh? Well, then it can be a hit or miss thing.

But the combination Disney + Adam Sandler ... I dunno....

Yea I understand what you're thinking, considering Sandler's more "mature" humor in other films. But based on the premise alone (which is what caught me), it should be a pretty big hit. Sandler is great with kids, from what I remember of Big Daddy. I'm guessing Disney is going to emphasize his more family-friendly side. It just looks like one of those "let's see it again" movies, with all the special effects and stuff. We'll see when it comes out...

I just think fun, positive movies are too few these days. Sandler or no, I'd see it.

Xena never takes herself too seriously. The show is full of self referential humor; very campy! The banshee scream is only to frighten The Bad Guys. You needn't worry, pshrynky. You'll only get the light touch of my whip, when I'm in a good mood. To draw you closer to me.....

Talking about advertisements on buses, Richard Dawkins is helping to sponsor atheist ads on London buses:

which will certainly make a change from the evangelical preachy adverts that one often has to endure.
