Audience Reviews for In Her Shoes

  • Apr 14, 2012
    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.

    I missed in 2005 this American comedy-drama in the cinemas because I thought that a film based on the novel of the same name by Jennifer Weiner must be just a brainless chick-flick! Have to say that I was wrong because this really funny movie, directed by Curtis Hanson with an adapted screenplay by Susannah Grant, gave me a chance to enjoy in its variety of situations and superb performances of Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette, and Shirley MacLaine. The film focuses on the relationship between two sisters and their grandmother. Maggie (Cameron Diaz) and Rose Feller (Toni Collette) are sisters with nothing in common but their shoe size. They were raised by their father Michael (Ken Howard) and always nagging stepmother (Candice Azzara) after their mother died in a car accident. Rose is the eldest and she is a lawyer while Maggie is a free spirit who is unable to hold a steady job (due to her virtual inability to read) and turns to alcohol and men for emotional and financial support. Rose grudgingly allows Maggie to move in with her when their stepmother throws her out of the house. Their already difficult relationship ends, however when Rose catches Maggie in bed with Jim (Richard Burgi), her boyfriend, Maggie subsequently disappears from Rose's life... but: there is more and I'll keep it a secret! Watch it for yourself :-)! Carino Chocano of the Los Angeles Times described this film as "a curious movie, hovering for upward of two hours between light and dark, truth and fake uplift, menace and mollycoddling." What a nice way to describe it!

    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!

    Two sisters with quite opposite characters, sexy, uneducated party animal Maggie (Cameron Diaz) and the somewhat dull responsible lawyer Rose (Toni Collette), are unwillingly confronted with each other. They learn that they can actually learn something from their deficiencies and combine the strands they have - with help from their grandmother - to improve their lives.
