Tom McCarthy United States, 2014

msmichel's rating of the film The Cobbler

The first 30 minutes and the final 10 hint that there could have been something special achieved. Unfortunately the time spent between is lost in clichés, missed opportunities and every ethnic stereotype imaginable. Lack of wit or interest so surprising coming from the director of 'The Visitor' and 'Win Win'. Sandler is adequate in another sad sack role but the rest of the cast just flounders.
