I had doubts about this movie when I checked this out and my doubts were correct. It's a very strange (and not good) movie, but the surprise appearance by (***spoiler!!***) Dustin Hoffmann was nice to see. I liked his scenes with Adam Sandler. Not enough to save this one though
It's amazing that some people enjoyed one of the few movies I yanked out of my machine. Changing lives by changing shoes could have been so much better. Instead the shoes he comes to stay in are those of a violent criminal who happens to be Black. The movie sinks from then on. Just my opinion of course. Those some people love men kicked in the balls and machine gun duels. Zero stars.
I found this movie to be both racist and sexist all at the same time. Sandler had an opportunity to explore ethnicity, family and morality. He botches the whole thing. That said, the result certainly isn’t boring. A film this sole-less deserves its very own rung of limbo.
Feel good nice movie. Lots of 'awwww' moments. Charming change from a lot of movies available.
interesting plot with a few twists. a bit racist: when he stole the man's shoe, he was black. when he ate at a fancy restaurant and presumably skipped on the bill, he was black. when he was spying on the activist, he was black.
I read one very negative comment about this movie (and many positive ones). I was going to watch this movie and if it was as bad as the reviewer said, I was going to quit. To my surprise I really enjoyed this movie - it was good. Dan Stevens from Downton Abby played an interesting character which was nice to see.
A light feel good movie that leaves you wanting to help people.
Good entertaining movie. A little bit of comedy, a little bit of drama and a little bit of heart. Is it one of Sandler's best?..... no. But it was great for an evening at home when nothing is on TV.
Not a comedy, but not really a drama either. Very quirky, we really enjoyed the story. Adam Sandler did surprisingly well, without comedy to fall back on.
This time, the mythological object was in the basement of a cobbler. Disappointing as a comedy but engaging plot when a shoe repair man, who led a mundane existence, stumbled into an evil plot of a property developer, but all ends well for the good guys.
This may be the worst Sandler movie I've ever seen. Don't expect anything funny, and you won't be disappointed. This is actually just a really bad drama, which would have needed some substantial rewrites to turn it into something worth watching. The concept is interesting, but that's where my compliments end, because everything else sucks. This almost kind of reminded me of one of the old disney movies from around the 70s, but not in a good way, and completely lacking in charm or anything remotely funny. Dustin Hoffman is only in this for a few mintues, just so you know, in case your a fan of his. I was hoping for another Meet the Fockers type role for him, but that didn't happen. Not worth watching.
I would rate this as an average film, not great but not bad, either. It's an interesting concept and had just enough substance to keep me interested. I think that with better writing this movie could've been so much more.
