There have been times when I’ve thought that the reason I was put on the Earth was to keep a strict watch on Adam Sandler. There he was, being his rude, crude, fidgety self with bad posture, and there I was in the screening room, ready to jump into the movie to smash him over the nose with a fly swatter. It’s amazing how Sandler still has a career after all his attempts to flush it down the toilet, and in my book he heads the list of “Incredible Hollywood Job Survivors,” with Johnny Knoxville coming in a distant second.

It is my duty to tell you, however, that “The Cobbler” is the best thing Sandler has done in a long, long time. For one thing, he plays a guy who’s very nice to his mom. Secondly, there are times when his back is almost straight, but that could be because he’s wearing other peoples’ shoes.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
