Do you like shoes? False sentimentality? Something that mistakes generalizations for insight? Then In Her Shoes is the film for you.

For the guys, this movie may be just as painful as going shoe shopping with a lady friend. Yet, it's refreshing to see Shirley MacLaine still has a bit of Irma la Douce left in her.

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

Forsaking all art and subtlety, something he used to display in abundance, Hanson has chosen to adapt a Jennifer Weiner novel that is so light, it should come with weights attached to keep it from floating away.

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

In Her Shoes is the most overly dramatic and estrogen-filled motion picture since Garry Marshall's Beaches.

I was so repulsed by these pigs of characters that if they were near me, I couldn't have resisted the urge to hurl them into a tank filled with man-eating sharks.

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

A saggy, baggy monster whose mood swings and personality tics spill over in unrelenting gushes.

You can see that some of the stuff on the screen might have actually worked in print, especially for a certain audience. But so much more is gooey and lazy and just not especially smart.

Entertaining enough, but it's more pat than provocative -- this is what makes it a bona fide audience pleaser while keeping it from drawing real blood.

A bungled mess that spends an hour creating two characters whose lives are about as believable as a successful ambush set by Wile E. Coyote for the Road Runner.

The characters seem authentic -- until the chick-flick template distorts them.

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.

Despite some strong performances and funny parts, including a wedding shower gone bad, the movie never seems to find the right fit.
