My thoughts on the film:

This was a different sort of film.  Different but enjoyable.   Sandler’s character is a humble cobbler who misses his dad and sacrifices a life of his own to take care of his ill mother.  This changes when he makes a simple discovery.  A discovery that changes the lives of many, and in different ways.

The film has heart.  True heart.  In saying that, there is violence, pg-13 style nudity and some weird shit.

The story flows, aided by a love interest, a friendly neighbor, and some unforgettable characters and moments.  This isn’t your typical Sandler film.  It’s funny, sweet, sharp and flows masterfully.  And that ending…. I won’t say more, but damn… what an ending.

My rating…  ☆☆☆☆
