The Cobbler

2015-03-13 07:50

What it's about:

Max Simkin repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Sometimes walking in another man's shoes is the only way one can discover who they really are.

What the critics say:

Fans of Adam Sandler are a hardy lot, impervious to the derision of friends and family and the slings and arrows his films frequently attract from critics. The Cobbler is likely to test their mettle.
- Bruce Demara, Toronto Star

Sandler is solid, and a supporting cast that includes Steve Buscemi, Melonie Diaz and Method Man are all very watchable. But the movie is never able to find its footing.
- Steve Tilley, Toronto Sun

The Cobbler is such a weirdly somber comedy that it would almost be in poor taste to laugh during it, though there's not much danger of that happening.
- Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve

The world may never again witness Peak Sandler, but that's OK. We'll always have Punch-Drunk Love.
- Barry Hertz, National Post
