Movie Info

Curtis Hanson's adaptation of Jennifer Weiner's novel In Her Shoes stars Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz as a pair of very close but very different sisters. Free-wheeling irresponsible Maggie Feller (Diaz) gets through her life thanks to her remarkable looks and her lack of scruples. She constantly goes to her straight-laced, plain-Jane successful lawyer sister Rose (Collette) for financial help. The two sisters have been very close to each other in part because their troubled mother died when

Considering it doesn't star Maggie Smith or Judi Dench, it's surprising how mature and moving this female-focused drama is.

I think one reason this movie is so appealing is that it's the anti-Sex and the City-its earnestness and relative lack of rank bawdiness or cynicism seem novel in the present pop-culture atmosphere.

Although In Her Shoes aims to rub along, with that scuffed worldliness which Hanson has made his own, it keeps bumping into the archness of the romantic-domestic genre.

There'd be nothing wrong with this if the film 'fessed up to its kitschy soul. Instead, it pretends to be the high-minded drama it's not.

It's hard to believe chick flick tripe like this was even revered with critical praise, but it happened.

"In Her Shoes" is an unbalanced movie that teeters between saccharine fluff and preachy self-help sentiment.

Cluttered and predictable; but laced with laughs and enough of an emotional payoff to make it all worthwhile.

When it comes to offensive depictions of disability, even with its abundance in movies, the silence can be really deafening, no pun intended.

A Hollywood movie that feels real; one that engages the tear ducts and the mind.

A simple yet rich drama played with humour and compassion and blessed with excellent performances.

...the movie loses focus, meanders, and changes tone at the drop of a wine glass, but it can be touching and revealing, too.

Una comedia dramática moderadamente disfrutable si bien previsible, donde Toni Collette y sobre todo Shirley MacLaine elevan el interés.

[Diaz] is the reason that In Her Shoes works as the perfect date movie. Women will fall in love with the story and men will fall in love with her. It's win-win.

The dialogue is exceptional -- bruising, funny, wise, with the directness that only siblings can inflict on each other.

You know where this is going, but it is done well. Curtis Hanson who directed L.A. CONFIDENTIAL and WONDER BOYS manages to make this one work

In between the first 20 and last 20 minutes this is an excellent film. Absolutely top notch dialogue -- smart, biting, and very well delivered.

Easily feels predictable, but the movie did such a good job in making me angry with these characters that I began to genuinely pull for them when they started to become better people.

For such a serving of yet another chick flick, In Her Shoes certainly has a fanciful bounce in its forceful step.

Diaz, in particular, gives a career-best performance, although the film-makers hedge their bets by having her appear either semi-naked or skimpily-dressed in almost every scene.

Audience Reviews for In Her Shoes

In Her Shoes is a boring awful film with an a bad cast and a flawed story. Cameron Diaz is passed her prime, and she has made her one good film in recent times, unfortunately her career has been very hit and miss, with more misses that actually good films. In Her Shoes was a boring, awful affair. One that was simply not worth your time. In Her Shoes was a boring film with bad acting. I really wasn't liking Cameron Diaz here, and I thought that she ruined a potentially good film with her annoying performance. The film was bad because it could have used more story development and better characters. The film is really clichéd, and you know what will happen next. I just can't recommend this film. I thought that the film could have been improved on, and that they could have done better than this. Unfortunately, the filmmakers delivered an awful film that isn't worth watching. Bad acting, a bad script and overall bad direction make this film a pointless and awful film to watch. I just despised the film from start to finish, and the film goes from a potential good film to a clichéd chick flick in a matter of minutes. The film misses the mark, and maybe, just maybe if it had a different cast an d are worked script, this film would have been watchable and not the atrocious mess that it turned out to be. The film shouldn't be seen, and if you do watch it, go in with mediocre to bad expectations.

Really enjoyed this film, Cameron Diaz was fantastic and it's a really heart wrenching film. You really feel empathetic towards the two sisters. A must see!

    1. Rose Feller: I don't know what's wrong with your girls. My Marcia never uses the word vagina!
    2. Maggie Feller: My Marcia doesn't even have a vagina!
    3. Rose Feller: Oh, My Marcia has a vagina alright, but my Marcia's vagina is made of solid 24 carrot gold!
    4. Maggie Feller: My Marcia's vagina is so perfect, it's in a museum!
