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 Max returns to the apartment to show two officers the body of the one he's "murdered," the two have their gold badges pinned to their lapels going in. On the way out, the shields are looking loose as they now appear to be the hang-around-the-neck ID badges and are not even in the same place as before. 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.

The story is so catchy,, the comedy is fresh,, one of the best Sandler's movies in years ;)
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.
