Official Show NotesEdit

"It's the Jewish magical realism tale that almost made Elliott hate his own Judaism: The Cobbler. Meanwhile, Stuart suffers from cartoon eye degeneration, Dan would like you to know very much that he's a wealthy murderer, and Elliott's singing has started to bleed dangerously outside the letters section."

Movie SummaryEdit

PremiseEdit

Adam Sandler has some magic shoes.

StoryEdit

­Speaking of things that don't really go and just sit around and don't do a lot, The Cobbler starring Adam Sandler.
     —Elliott @06:18

­[Dustin Hoffman] reveals, 'Oh yeah, all craft tradesmen– dry cleaners, etc.– they all have these secret societies. Anyway, there's a lot of danger and a lot of excitement. Let's go son!' And they drive off into the distance and that's the end of the movie.
     —Elliott @42:52

Movie PitchesEdit

All Shoes Go To Heaven @18:31

Elliott's childrens' movie where shoes go to heaven but people go to hell for abusing shoes by walking on them, forcing them to slave away for nothing. Jimmy Pixar loved it, calling it their best movie since Monsters University.

The Cobbler: Rated R @16:44

Same basic premise as The Cobbler, but the shoes come to life and give Adam Sandler romantic advice. Sample dialogue: "Hey, ask her out! I'll be your wingtip man!"

QuotesEdit

­'And then Goldberry came to the door it was as if an elf maiden had come to the door, a thing that has not shown up in this book yet.'
     —Stuart improves on Lord of the Rings @04:43

­It is also a moment for the director to be like, 'My audience is pretty stupid. They are not going to be able to follow this. They're just going to think we're following a random person around for some reason.'
     —Stuart @13:46
