Bed Time Story is such nonsensical fun, that it’s amazing Brando decided to act in it. The film has got bum rapped for a very long time. I thought it was a hilarious ride and superior to its remake - dirty rotten scoundrels.

Its great entertainment and should be accepted for what it is. a farcical comic caper. Brando is hilarious and i think critics could not comprehend why would the most dramatic of actors, play so against type and even dare to do something comically silly like this.

i think he did it coz he just wanted to try out every kind of genre and had had his fill of serious stuff - so he goes out on a limb and does something which a bob hope / jerry lewis would do.
Brando does a fab job at it, so which just proves that he was a consummate actor

Brando in his later years says that this was the film he had the maximum fun working, as he really liked david niven, his co star.

The film is a great laugh riot, dont go expecting subtle humour, its nonsensical humour and works at that level.

This is one story which will keep you laughing and revisiting ever so often.
