Trivia

The plot involves Adam Sandler's character "becoming" other characters. Ellen Barkin appears in the film. She also starred in another body-swap film called Switch (1991), where she played a womanizing man who is killed and comes back in the body of a woman. See more »

Goofs

When the thug who is beating "Patrick the Ratprick" pulls out a semi-automatic Glock pistol to shoot Patrick, you hear the sound of the gun's slide being cycled, which would put a round into the empty chamber. When Leon tells him to stop, you see the thug cycle the slide again, as if this action would "de-cock" the weapon, which it does not. In addition, no cartridge is ejected when he does this, which is what would happen had a round actually been in the chamber. See more »

Quotes

Abraham Simkin: It's a privilege to walk in another man's shoes, Max, but it's also a responsibility.

The story is so catchy,, the comedy is fresh,, one of the best Sandler's movies in years ;)
9 May 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

The idea of the movie is fresh new ... at the beginning it starts so vaguely intriguing .. if i didn't knew it's Adam sandler's movie and already had watched the trailer and knew it's a comedy i wouldn't get it from that start of New York 1903 story ;)

The plot is catchy starts easy understandable and grows nicely to the flip point where the shoe maker uses that magical "stitcher" machine we saw on the trailer and wears his first shoe ,, there is some predictability but it was still nice storyline to follow.

The screenplay is tight ,, perfectly written, the movie itself is purposeful ,, like literally "put yourself in somebody's shoes" what would you do !! Seeing how everyone's life really is ... having his own life, problems, having fun ...etc until things go waaaaay bad :D

Well as for the cast ,, i mean come on .. it's Adam Sandler and i don't know but i really liked the short appearance of Dustin Hoffman i like him too,, his role kinda brought some emotional moments to the movie ;)

Overall the movie is really sweet ,, not the type of comedy where you find yourself on your back laughing ,, but it works with the events smoothly.
