I am glad I ignored the bad reviews from users and critics and watched this movie. I didn't have any expectations when I rented it, but was merely in the mood for a comedy that would take my mind off of a hectic day. Luckily, The Cobbler fit the bill. It was funny, charming, clever and overall very entertaining. The premise of the movie was unique and intriguing, and I enjoyed the plot twists and fantasy moments alike. Adam Sandler was in great form, and the entire supporting cast made the movie work like a well oiled machine pun intended . I didn't find the characters played by Adam <more>
Sandler offensive or distasteful, and there were some real laugh out loud moments. Of course, there were plenty of moments full of genuine sentiment, with lots of lessons to be learned. This is the kind of movie I want in my permanent collection, and if there is going to be a sequel, I can't wait to see it.
Yes, this wasn't Adam Sandler's typical work, it had very subtle comedic undertones, and it missed out on potential "laugh out loud" moments, but what it brings to the table was something I honestly didn't know I was craving. What starts out as a slow and soggy beginning, gradually turns into something fresh and light hearted that I really enjoyed. If you were expecting the slap-your-knee comedy you are used to, this may not be for you, but if you are ready to see some just good quality acting, than this movie is just the ticket. It's always welcoming to have a movie <more>
take what seems like everyday life and introduce a touch of "what if" magic to the mundane, and I think this movie hits that mark perfectly. It wasn't over the top, it didn't try to hard, and it takes a concept that we take for granted and introduces it to us in a very kind way.
Great. Just kept getting better through out the story. Not a silly comedy but a wonderful tale. Adam Sandler out does himself. No goof ball here. Filled with comedy,suspense and love. Dustin Hoffman was the perfect choose as the father. Steve Buscemi was perfect as the barber,and "tie in"" of this sweet story. It made me want to find a cobbler! It takes the viewer in and eager for the "next turn" of the plot. Did not want it to end. Pure magic! Was amazing how it all ties in. It makes you laugh. It touches your heart.At the same time, it keeps guessing. Treat yourself <more>
I'm really surprised at the low rating! I thought the plot idea was very original for a movie. I thought it was a good idea to involve his heritage too. My only critique is that the love interest was too young for him. But I also liked how the humor was less silly than some of Sandler's other movies- simply because I like to see man of his age mature and transition. I mean, I enjoyed many of his other movies, but I'm happy to see him transition to other forms or levels of humor. Some of the previous moves he made were rough, namely Click, Spanglish, and Punch Drunk Love- I still <more>
enjoyed them but I thought they were a little out of touch of his spark. I hope to see more movies of the caliber coming from him, very good and entertaining movie.
This not-so-typical Adam Sandler movie makes up for a delectable watch (by itsmuks)
The Cobbler doesn't come up as a typical Adam Sandler movie having a typical humor. This in fact constitutes a perfectly entertaining flick having moments of subtlety and non-pompousness. The trailer did show some emotional scenes and gives an impression as if the flick is about a brooding Adam Sandler but the real matter totally contradicts that. It is funny and leaves a big smile on your face when it ends. Now about Adam Sandler. This is one of his finest performances owing to the fact that he makes no effort to act. His natural awkwardness perfectly fits the character and i don't <more>
think there could have been anyone more perfect to play this coward yet clean at heart protagonist.Don't fall for the reviews or the ratings. This movie is sumptuous in its own way and will leave a great taste in your mouth when seen on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Excellent and Surprising Sandler (by personaleassistante)
I was never a fan of Sandler, 'cause he always used the same jokes, the same base-storyline, same characters and etc. Even similar locations and chicks blond in preference , to all of his movies!With this one, from the trailer I have watched one year ago, I was so anticipating to watch it. Sandler, played out of his comfort zone and he won. To all the points: acting, story, scenes, photography, production, other actors, WOW just WOW. Loved every single minute of this movie. Even if you are a hater of Sandler, you should give it a try. I put my hands on fire, that you will be also happily <more>
surprised.My rating is 9/10 cause, nothing is perfect, right? :-
As you've read, this is not your typical Adam Sandler movie.. yes it has it's jokes but it's not his typical shtick .. some of that is thrown in for good measure, but this is much lighter.This has what I thought to be a very good story and even a nice twist, even though I saw it coming before it was revealed, it was still a nice twist.I think this movie has a lot of heart and it has morality tale spun in for good measure.. It has a pretty good cast of characters as well.. I got my laughs, I got some sincere emotional moments and the "yay for the underdog" moments as well <more>
.. I left satisfied!The KEY to this movie is don't go in with expectations.. if you're going there hoping to see another "Click" or "Happy Gillmore" movie you'll be disappointed.. I honestly do feel bad for Adam because he's gotten typecast .. if he tries to step out of the expectations then people think he sucks.. Jim Carrey has fought that for a long time.. just as so many others have... Give them a chance!
I used to be a big Adam Sandler fan, until he started phoning it in with the same kinds of immature jokes and "safe" comedies that sucked but still made a lot of cash.I'm really glad he branched out and took a chance with this film; I think it really paid off. This film has a lot of heart, some decent comedy, and a nice story. It's more drama than comedy, but it's not too much drama. It even has a nice fantasy element without getting too caught up in it.I don't get why it has such a low rating. I read some negative reviews by "critics" and thought it was <more>
another disappointment by Sandler, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it wasn't. Give it a chance, and if you're not already prejudiced, I think you'll be glad you did.
I truly liked this movie and I admire Adam Sandler for sticking to his roots and having heart. The story has the flavor of a Yiddish folktale and maybe you have to be Jewish to get it but I found it entertaining. Sometimes you want something silly and light with a happy ending and this delivers. It even made me laugh! The movie has a great cast to boot including actors like Dustin Hoffman and Ellen Barkin who I'd like to see more of. Maybe they're stereotype characters but that's what makes it funny! It's not a movie that will appeal to all audiences but it appealed to me. <more>
There are surprises and twists and it is a comedy fantasy so keep and open mind and enjoy!
