Will Adam Sandler’s Bedtime Stories Destroy Princess Bride?

By Gabe Delahaye / September 22, 2008 - 12:01 pm

Adam Sandler is starring in a new children’s movie titled Bedtime Stories in which the stories that he tells his niece and nephew come true.

I know that the stories didn’t exactly come true in the Princess Bride, that’s more of a Neverending Story thing, but whoever made this definitely saw that movie and is trying to capitalize on its particular brand of wonder and imagination but in basically the worst way. I fear for the generation that grows up referencing this movie and having unironic nostalgic viewing parties of this movie with their adult friends. Not that I do that. I don’t do that. But that movie is so beloved, someone probably does that. Lindsay probably does. Lindsay gets together every week with her girlfriends for cosmos and Princess Bride. Good for her. It’s so cute that Lindsay does that.

Also, I don’t know about you, but my imagination doesn’t use CGI. It’s strictly mechanical effects and green screen, with no CGI whatsoever. Old school.
