这是1974年，一个名叫Marty Bronson (Jonathan Pryce)的人正在讲述一个故事。这个故事是关于他自己的，他是一家古雅旅店的老板，这家旅店也是他自己和他的两个孩子经营的。女儿(Abigail Droeger 饰)，12岁，很认真，很有效率地管理前台。儿子(Thomas Hoffman 饰)，10岁，有一种奇妙的想象力，会带他去任何地方，但对旅店是绝对，完全，完全，完全，完全没有一点用处。然而，孩子们很少知道汽车旅馆的欠债，Marty 被迫卖给一个名叫Barry Nottingham (Richard Griffiths 饰)的英国人。然而，条件是只有同意他儿子成年时管理经营这个地方Marty 才能卖给Barry……
It’s 1974, and a man by the name of Marty Bronson (Jonathan Pryce) is narrating a story. The story is about himself as the owner of a quaint hotel that is also run by himself and his 2 children. The daughter (Abigail Droeger), at 12 years old is very serious minded and runs the front desk efficiently. And the son (Thomas Hoffman), at 10 years old, has a wondrous imagination that will take him anywhere, but is absolutely, totally, completely, utterly, & entirely useless to the hotel. Little do the children know, though, that the motel is in debt, and Marty is forced to sell to an English chap by the name of Barry Nottingham (Richard Griffiths). However, Marty will only sell to Barry under the agreement that his son run the place when he is of age.
Fast forward and we see the quaint hotel quadrupled in size and is no longer a family establishment but more for the rich and famous, and Marty’s son Skeeter Bronson (Adam Sandler) is the hotel handyman. When Nottingham announces plans to build a new hotel he appoints another man named Kendall (Guy Pearce) to become the manager.
After work, Skeeter visits his sister for it is his niece’s birthday (who he hasn’t seen in 4 years). There his sister Wendy (Courteney Cox) informs him that the school that the children Patrick (Jonathan Morgan Heit) and Bobbi (Laura Ann Kesling) attend, which she herself is the principal at, is being closed down and that has to relocate to Arizona for a job and asks Skeeter if he could watch her kids while she goes for an interview. Even though Skeeter doesn’t know his niece and nephew very well, he agrees.
After the day shift babysitter Jill (Keri Russell) leaves, he settles them into bed and they ask him to read a story. After looking at the lame books that the children have, he refuses to read them and instead makes up his own story. Modeled around his own life, he tells the story of a medieval squire named “Sir Fixalot” and his rival “Sir Buttkiss”. Throughout the story the kids make their own additions, such as the king giving Sir Fixalot a chance to prove himself. During the celebration, Patrick announces that “it starts raining gumballs” and the story ends.
