Action/Adventure, Comedy, Family
In this uneven Disney family picture, Adam Sandler tones down his arrested-development persona, trading crass for cuddly as a hotel janitor stuck with babysitting his niece and nephew. After a slow setup, the comedy takes off as the children's additions to his improvised, self-involved bedtime stories begin coming true in daily life, like when the sky rains gumballs, or when he rescues a contemporary damsel in distress (Teresa Palmer, channeling a sanitized Paris Hilton). Richard Griffiths, playing Sandler's phobic boss, best gets the antic spirit of this enterprise, whether evoking a latter-day Howard Hughes, or the fantasy characters of a Greco-Roman emperor, medieval king, or sci-fi potentate. Director Adam Shankman (Hairspray) shows an affinity for fractured fairy tales, but Guy Pearce and Lucy Lawless are miscast as Sandler's nemeses (99 min.).
