On one hand, you’ve gotta respect Adam Sandler for leveraging his sizable Hollywood clout in order to focus on making “heartwarming” family fare.
On the other hand. No. Absolutely not.
Yes, The Cobbler is entire movie built around the cliche of walking a mile in another person’s shoe.
Odds are you’ve already figured out the entire plot, all the “twists” and the inevitable “learns to love what he has in his own life” ending, already. If not, we suggest boning up on similar Sandler-fare like Click, Blended, Grown Ups (1 and 2) and may god have mercy on your – and his – soul.
