Adam Sandler in Bedtime Stories

For Adam Sandler, the world of movies have always been his playground. In his own films and with his Happy Madison production, he seems to be able to do whatever he wants and still make plenty of money. No matter how bad the movie, he is always bringing in the dollars. Take for example, his recent string of comedies — The Longest Yard (2005), Click (2006), I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007) and You Don’t Mess With the Zohan (2008) — none of which were what the thinking public would call “good movies,” but all of which earning over $100 million dollars at the domestic box office. It is as if Sandler is completely impervious to any critical thought — he is a man above the good senses of audiences.

And good for him — because for all of his follies, the man has entertained over the years. And it appears that with his next comedy, the family-oriented Bedtime Stories, he is bringing to life another loser character named Skeeter Bronson — one that will surely join the crazy guy with the remote control issues and the Israeli counter-terrorist hair stylist in the $100 million club.

This time, he has teamed with Disney for a film that will also star Keri Russell, Guy Pearce, Courtney Cox and Forgetting Sarah Marshall’s Russel Brand. The cast looks strong and the first trailer doesn’t look to bad, either. Now if only the main character’s name wasn’t Skeeter…

Have a look at the trailer for yourself below. Bedtime Stories hits theaters December 25th.
