The Cobbler : Movie Review

The trailer of The Cobbler has really an interesting premise. However, the reviews tell you to avoid another Adam Sandler junk due to his past trash films (except for Blended and Hotel Transylvania.) We had the chance to watch it last Monday night, and we were not disappointed with the outcome of it.

Max Simkin (Adam Sandler) is a cobbler at a New York shop owned by his family for generations. He is living with his mother, and he is quite disappointed on his daily routine. However, when Max stumbles into the magical shoe making machine of his father; his life changes as he can step into the lives of his customers. With the power in his hands, Max tries to fit every shoe in his shop and use it to enter the lives of different people.

The Cobbler has a great story in it,  but it didn't capitalize on it and should have explored more around on its fascinating plot. It already had an amazing idea, but all of these were rushed and never reached that full potential. There are some fun moments with the usual Adam Sandler vibe, but without the offensive comedy antics. Adam Sandler looked disgruntled at times, and it seems he's not too interested in making this film.

Overall, The Cobbler isn't terrible as the other critics say. It just felt half baked along the way, and its too bad that it didn't come out exciting as the trailer suggests.
