I haven't heard much about Bedtime Stories, the new movie with Keri Russell and Adam Sandler, and there don't seem to be many reviews released yet. Here's all the information I have from the Washington Post:
Bedtime Stories is an adventure comedy starring Adam Sandler as Skeeter Bronson, a hotel handyman whose life is changed forever when the bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to mysteriously come true. Sounds creative (though I've also heard that it's Sandler's attempt at a Ben Stiller-type Night At the Museum fantasy gone wrong). In any case, the Los Angeles premiere was last night, and here were some of the fashion hits and misses.

HITS

Keri Russell in Premiere Of Disney&squot;s "Bedtime Stories" - Arrivals

Honestly, this thin, white material has the potential to look way to angelic, but she has smartly contrasted it with the thick black belt, black pumps, and short length. And let's talk about her above-the-shoulders successes: Could her hair be more wonderful? I love the short 'do and the subtle, glamorous waves. Her lipstick is bright and pretty, and the rest of her makeup is understated. I cannot shower her with enough praise.

Though his hair looks a little greasy, his glasses and scruffy beard look cool, and I love his collared shirt and tie under sweater under blazer. It looks preppy in a non-boring way, and he keeps it casual in jeans. Overall, cute.

CLOSE, BUT NO CIGAR

I don't hate Courteney Cox's navy silk frock, but I definitely don't love it. Only because she would look great in ANYTHING, so why she chose this is a mystery. I wish that she had chosen one body part to accentuate, either a little cleavage or some leg or a peek of forearm, because she's undeniably hot enough to pull off something with a WOW factor. Still, I like her necklace, and her hair is glossy, and this dress doesn't make me cringe.

Teresa Palmer in Premiere Of Disney&squot;s "Bedtime Stories" - Arrivals

I actually love the color (though it's a little too close for comfort to that of her hair), and she looks very shiny and pretty. The length works because the top is so revealing, and the shoes are adorable. I even like the contrasting waistband. My hesitation, of course, is with the bodice: While I like the overall structure, the accent color on the boobs makes me uneasy. It reminds me a little bit of this adhesive bra I bought to go under backless dresses, but I have never thought to wear it OUTSIDE my clothing. Now I know what I'll be sporting tonight.

MISSES

I even get that this is his "look" and I respect that. But he's wearing too many necklaces, too many belts, and effeminate ankle boots that I do NOT respect.

(Photo by Michael Buckner/Getty Images) *** Local Caption *** Jessica Stone (Getty Images)more pics »I don't know who Jessica Stone is, but she's totally cute, and I know a lot of short women out there who sympathize with her plight of stumpiness. Tip: Don't choose an ankle strap to cut off what little leg you have, and avoid lacy minidresses that I suspect are supported by taffeta underneath, because you now have NO shape. Oh, and cute jacket.

Rodriguez/Getty Images for Disney) *** Local Caption *** Aisha Tyler (Getty Images)more pics »Aisha Tyler almost got away with a "Close, but no cigar" on this one, but I have to put my foot down on the grounds of endless potential. What is she, six feet tall and gorgeous? This dress just screams mediocre. Her beautiful skin is crying for a prettier color, and the dress seems to be so poorly made that the fabric near the empire seam is tweaking. Those tiers aren't doing anything for her (though if anyone can get away with it, she can), and she should have shown off those curves underneath. That being said, way to be tall enough to really pull off the ankle strap!

Adam Sandler in Premiere Of Disney&squot;s "Bedtime Stories" - Arrivals

I get that you're a dad now, and you are so chill, and I love Happy Gilmore, but can't you just try a little bit? I'm not saying you need to go all out Russell Brand with your style choices, but couldn't you try a button down shirt? A black shoe? SOMETHING THAT'S NOT A HOODIE? Cool, thanks.
