Adam Sandler Wears Other People's Shoes in 'The Cobbler' Trailer

The Cobbler

The buzz about Adam Sandler's performance in The Cobbler following a premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival hasn't been significant, and that's mostly because reviews of the film itself haven't exactly been glowing. Now the first international trailer has arrived and this doesn't feel like it's directed by Thomas McCarthy (The Station Agent, Win Win) at all. It feels like one of the films they forgot to place somewhere in Funny People. That's not to say it looks absolutely terrible, but there's something that just doesn't feel right. This isn't the kind of role we were hoping for from Sandler, but maybe it's good?

Here's the first international trailer for Thomas McCarthy's The Cobbler from YouTube:

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 hitting theaters in 2015.

Like the concept, poorly cut trailer. They missed an opportunity to tug at the heart.

The Trailer made it look like a movie that someone wrote in the 90s that didnt get made till 2004. I could get into this though, its just so much better looking than BLENDED.

I don't trust people who work with Adam Sandler.

This movie is actually based on Daniel Day Lewis' life.

Considering it's an Adam Sandal movie, this is not too bad.
