Adam Sandler stars as a cobbler continuing his family's business in New York City. His seemingly monotonous life is flipped upside-down when he discovers a magical heirloom which transports him into the lives of his customers.~Daniel Gelb
Very nice fairy tale, very touching. I'd give it 5 Stars, but it has a tendency to drag, possibly from lack of editing. It's a perfect vehicle for Sandler as a nice Jewish boy coming from a long line of immigrants, keeping up the family business. He discovers by accident a special power in an old stitching machine in his basement. Like the dutiful man he is, he sets out to use it for good and meets evil along the way.
Having not seen any trailers for this movie in the theaters my wife and I were concerned about how good it might be. We decided to take a risk based on the relatively low price. It kept us interested, had the odd twist in it, made us laugh, provoked a tear or two, and overall we were quite happy with our purchase. I would not recommend this to a family with young children.
This is not the Adam Sandler from Billy Madison or even Blended. I knew nothing of the movie and waited for the humor only to discover this was a very dark movie. not to say I didn't enjoy it, but definitely not what I was accustomed to seeing from Adam Sandler. he does a great job in his role as a Cobbler able to assume the identity of others by simply wearing their shoes and I don't think I would have enjoyed this movie with any other actor. As a fan of Adam Sandler it was nice to see him in a different movie genre, but took a minute to realize this movie was not filled with the brand of humor I was used to.
Tom McCarthy wrote and directed this charming urban fairy tale set in New York City. Adam Sandler plays a cobbler who accidentally discovers the power of a family heirloom that lets him walk in the shoes of his customers.
Very good movie. Everybody loves this movie that I watch it with. My girlfriend loved this movie. Her mom will love this movie. My mom will love this movie. I'm not sure why it got bad reviews on rotten tomatoes. It was a movie about real stuff that matters and real stuff that could really happen. Good life lessons can be learned for the young children. Should have been rated PG.
It was nice for an Adam Sandler movie but you have to be patient. When I was watching it I was wondering where it was going. Then the action started. The way it ended looked like the making of a TV series.
