Adam Sandler seems to be trying something a tiny bit different with The Cobbler, sticking with comedy but adding in a side of whimsy, with the result that it looks like a kids film for adults, at least if this trailer is anything to go by.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘THE COBBLER is a warm and character-driven comedy that plays to the strengths of Adam Sandler’s and Thomas McCarthy’s most commercial successes. Sandler plays a 4th generation shoe-maker who discovers a magical sewing machine in his father’s basement that allows him to transform into other people by wearing their shoes. Similar in theme to Tom Hanks’ BIG, TRADING PLACES, and 13 GOING ON 30, THE COBBLER provides the perfect vehicle for Sandler to exhibit his endearing and selfless boyish charm, taking him on a voyage of self-discovery and learning the importance of family via the magic of “walking a mile in another man’s shoes.” A journey that results not only in changing himself, but the world around him.’
It’s not clear when we’ll see the movie, but take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
