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.
Rotten: What starts off as a potentially charming fantasy never finds its footing.
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.
Rotten: "The Cobbler" is a wildly ill-conceived curio from director Tom McCarthy, who co-wrote with Paul Sado.
It was odd, predictable, should wait till it hits netflix. Usually like Adams movies but this was not good.
I love all the critics who gave this one star. Would love to see them do some acting. Was a great story! It's a good movie that is worth watching again.
I don't know what movie the critics were watching or if they have it in for adam sandler,but there wrong!!! very well written and fun to watch with the family!
