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.

Very well written. All the supporting performances are good.

Top Critic

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.

New Yorker
Top Critic

It's a rare film that requires a trash-talking best friend and a lively, smart-mouthed, comically blunt little old lady to liven things up. It's an even rarer film that can't be helped by either one.

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

Cinema Crazed

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

Full Review… | April 15, 2009

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.

Movies for the Masses

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

Christianity Today

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.

Movie Metropolis

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

Reel Film Reviews

[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.

Full Review… | January 28, 2006

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

Sydney Morning Herald

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

Full Review… | January 13, 2006

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

Hollywood Report Card

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.

Daily Mirror [UK]

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!

Bethany Murphy

Super Reviewer

Maggie (Cameron Diaz) and Rose (Toni Collette) are both best friends as well as sisters and absolute opposites when it comes to values, goals and personal styles. Maggie is a real party girl who barely graduated from high school recycles jobs as quickly as yesterdays newspapers and believes her biggest asset is her attractiveness to the opposite sex. Rose is a Princeton educated attorney at a top law firm in Philadelphia her low self esteem regarding her physical appearance has left her dating life just about non existent. Roses one joy in life is shoes (because they always fit), but unfortunately she has few social opportunities to remove them from her closet. After a falling out, the two sisters travel a bumpy road toward true appreciation for one another aided along the way by the discovery of the maternal grandmother they thought was dead and through their reconnection with their grandmother, Ella,(Shirley Maclaine), Maggie and Rose learn how to make peace with themselves and with each other.
