In Her Shoes Reviews

Future Movies UK

It features wonderful performances by its three leading ladies; Diaz has the showier part and its great to see her playing complicated, unhappy Maggie.

The landmasses of Asia and Africa took less time to split apart than this interminable film does to grind towards its emotionally forgiving conclusion.

Hanson is a remarkable director of actors, particularly when working with ensemble casts, as in three of his last four films.

To call it a chick flick would be doing a huge disservice to a film that is more about relationships than it is about women.

Hanson flexes his versatility in this sweet and funny film.

It may do for the chick lit genre what Silence of the Lambs did for the horror genre: make it OK to like it, and encourage more people to adapt these underrated works to film.

A funny, generous film with strong performances, In Her Shoes redeems the often derogatory 'chick flick' label.

Quality acting can overshadow a certain amount of plot and direction looseness, however. That's what makes In Her Shoes worth trying on.

Director Curtis Hanson...moves to Chick Lit and turns it into an entertainment with true human emotion and only a few minor concessions to Hollywood gloss

It's still pretty engaging and at times quite poignant, bolstered by terrific acting and crisp, effective direction.

Boys, you're missing out. Hanson is one of our most unobtrusive directors, and his work is exactly the kind of rock-steady craftsmanship movies are missing these days.
