While in his teens, Donny fathered a son, Todd, and raised him as a single parent until Todd's 18th birthday. Now Donny resurfaces just before Todd's wedding after years apart, sending the groom-to-be's world crashing down.
Max Simkin repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Sometimes walking in another man's shoes is the only way one can discover who they really are.Written by
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 »
It's a privilege to walk in another man's shoes, Max, but it's also a responsibility.

The scene in which Leon is killed by being stabbed in the neck with a stiletto heel is censored in both the US and UK versions of the film to attain a PG-13 and 12 rating respectively. The version shown at festivals, and the German release, are uncut. In the censored version, blood has been digitally reduced in the medium shots of Leon, and a shot is removed entirely of Leon taking the heel out of his neck as blood runs down his shirt. The UK version makes an additional change to the scene where Leon roughs up a thief; throughout the scene, the blood on the thief's face has been digitally recolored to be darker in order to soften the impact of the scene.

This isn't the typical Adam Sandler movie, but...
... it's a very good one. If you're looking for something funny, then go watch something else as this film goes far away from the regular comic act from A. Sandler we are all used to.
In fact, this film is anything but regular. This is an out of the box, imaginative and creative story. The plot has a good pace as it keeps presenting characters and information but also progresses quickly through the story. As every good movie, there's a bit of a twist in the end, which was very positive to the story.
In a certain way, it reminds me of two other fine movies starred by two comedy actors but focusing on a creative story rather than a funny one. Those would be "Be Kind Rewind" (Jack Black) and "Stranger Than Fiction" (Will Ferrell). The connection with Be Kind is mainly due to the preservation of the tradition that lies in both plots and how important that is to the course of the story. The connection with Stranger is because of the innovative fantasy that gives such peculiar taste to these stories.
If this film had at least a couple of funny scenes, it would be better, but it is good to take a break from all the dumb comedy movies we have been seeing lately. Definitely worth checking out!
