FINALLY, an Adam Sandler movie that we can be excited for. It has a great story and supporting cast(who doesn’t love Dustin Hoffman). Let’s hope this leans toward Punk-Drunk Love more than Jack and Jill.
“a lonely New York shoe repairman who starts to sense that he’s let life pass him by — going nowhere while fixing the shoes of more-assertive customers taking vacations and living adventures. Things change, though, when he discovers a family heirloom that magically lets him “walk in another man’s shoes” and see the world differently.”
The director Tom McCarthy also had this to say about casting Adam Sandler:
“For a guy who’s known as a funny guy, Adam has a very soulful quality to him. One of the things that makes Adam right for [the role] is that he does handle the various levels of comedy very well. And he transitions really well from comedy to drama. He can make even the smallest, simplest moments funny.”
