Adam Sandler is Sad & Goofy in Second Trailer for 'The Cobbler'
"You have not seen this before, trust me." As we wait for Adam Sandler to embark on the first film in his new deal with Netflix (it'll be the western comedy The Ridiculous Six), this spring brings The Cobbler. And while we previously hopes that director Thomas McCarthy would help Sandler deliver another worthy dramatic performance, instead, as the first trailer indicated last fall, this is a pretty broad, quirky comedy that just seems to miss the mark. Now another trailer has arrived, and Sandler doesn't even get to have that much fun since he inhabits other people (like Method Man and Dan Stevens) when he puts on their shoes. But this time we get a glimpse at what Melonie Diaz is doing in the film, and she might be the bright spot.
Here's the latest trailer for Thomas McCarthy's The Cobbler originally from Yahoo:
The Cobbler is directed by Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, The Station Agent, The Visitor) from a script he co-wrote with newcomer Paul Sado. Following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, Max (Adam Sandler) runs a charming if rundown shoe repair shop on the Lower East Side of New York City. Happy being his own boss, Max nonetheless feels mired in his daily routine and yearns for something he can’t name. One day, in the shop’s dusty basement, he stumbles across a forgotten family heirloom with magical powers that allow him to literally step into the lives of his customers. Dustin Hoffman, Method Man, Melonie Diaz, Ellen Barkin, Dan Stevens and Steve Buscemi also star in the film arriving on March 13th.
