The Shoe Kinda Fits

A mature film from Sandler as he discovers that living in other people's shoes is not as great as it may first appear. A sweet entertaining film.

Such a weirdly somber comedy that it would almost be in poor taste to laugh during it, though there's not much danger of that happening.
