Running Time: 
95 Minutes

Bedtime Stories has all the classic elements of the Disney formula but with Sandler in the mix the comedy is lowered to a simple dumbed down patronizing level that smaller children will get a kick out of but will have everyone else's eyes rolling.

The picture dips in and out of a slight background haze to almost perfect (mostly in the CGI heavy scenes). When there is to much light, for example, when the kids are roasting marshmallows by the fire, the color is off a little and shadows interfere with the clarity of the picture. The sound is a little light as well. I had to boost my surround sound up five extra notches to get maximum sound quality.

Seemingly there are a lot but they don't do much to bring the overall enjoyment of the purchase up. Bloopers are mildly entertaining but not in the least hilarious as the package would lead you to believe. Deleted scenes offer up mostly extensions on scenes already in the film but there are some gems in there that help clarify some aspects of the plot. A feature on the guinea pig from the film (Bugsy) which is forgettable at best. A behind the scenes feature that is humorous and informative but all things considered with this film nothing that would awe you. 

In this limited time combo pack you get a standard DVD version as well as a digital version and as always a Disney Rewards Code which in itself boosts the value of the package considerably but  not substantially.
