The critics agree: they’ve cobbled together a HIT!

Grantland’s Wesley Morris gushes, “A movie like this…reminds you that it’s truly a miracle when movies work.”

The New York Post‘s Lou Lumenick writes, “Adam Sandler plays it relatively straight in The Cobbler, a[n] earnest and…magic-realist fable set on the Lower East Side that works.”

The AV Club’s A.A. Dowd raves, “There are Adam Sandler movies.”

Baret News Wire’s Kam Williams describes Adam Sandler as “very convincing.”

David Nusair of Reel Film Reviews notes, “It’s ultimately impossible not to label the movie as…reliable.”
