About the Movie

Max Simkin has had enough of working in his little New York shoe repair shop where he quietly envies people with more interesting lives. So when he discovers an old family heirloom with the magical ability to change his appearance and transform into any of his customers, the temptation is too good to pass up. However, his newfound ability to become someone else proves to be as troublesome as it is fun. When a ruthless real estate developer tries to take over his neighborhood, Max uses his gift to become the hero he always hoped he could be. Featuring an all-star cast including Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi, Cliff “Method Man” Smith and Ellen Barkin, THE COBBLER proves that sometimes you have to walk in another man’s shoes to discover who you really are.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The sophomoric humor may be absent, but in its place is only a souffle of whimsy, seasoned with soot, that fails to rise. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Mar 12, 2015

Rotten: What starts off as a potentially charming fantasy never finds its footing. – Esther Zuckerman, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 12, 2015

Rotten: It's a toxic smear of curdled whimsy about a New York shoe-repair man (a lumbering Adam Sandler), who transforms into his customers when he puts on their shoes. The film is beyond awful. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Mar 12, 2015

Rotten: "The Cobbler" is a wildly ill-conceived curio from director Tom McCarthy, who co-wrote with Paul Sado. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Mar 12, 2015
