Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Cobbler is a quirky dramedy with fantasy elements starring Adam Sandler as a fourth-generation cobbler on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Unlike many of Sandler's other movies, this isn't a lowbrow comedy with sports and bodily fluid jokes: It's a story about birthright, community, and what it takes to understand someone else's life. But there's also a lot of casual violence that's occasionally depicted humorously but is no less disturbing. People are stabbed, choked, kidnapped, tortured, and killed. A man almost impersonates a woman's lover to have sex with her, and the language is occasionally strong, with "s--t," "bitch," and "a--hole" peppered here and there.

Sexual Content

Max and Jimmy admire a model's body. When Max gets the chance to impersonate the model's boyfriend, he nearly showers/has sex with her but stops himself.

Violence

Characters are mugged, beaten, tortured, jolted with electricity, stabbed, and killed. A woman makes it clear that her ex had been physically abusing her. One of the people Max can turn into is dead, so he looks like a zombie and scares people when he's in that guise. While disguised as a woman's lover, Max almost takes advantage and has sex with her.

Language

Occasional strong language includes "s--t," "a--hole," and "bitch."

Social Behavior

The idea of walking in someone else's shoes to learn empathy (in this case, literally) is a worthy one, but the positive potential of the movie's message is largely undermined by the fact that, for much of the movie, Max uses his special ability to commit crimes and do other ugly things (including taking advantage of stereotypes).
