Considering it doesn't star Maggie Smith or Judi Dench, it's surprising how mature and moving this female-focused drama is.
The dialogue is exceptional -- bruising, funny, wise, with the directness that only siblings can inflict on each other.
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.
The landmasses of Asia and Africa took less time to split apart than this interminable film does to grind towards its emotionally forgiving conclusion.
The movie gets much, much better as it goes along.
Very well written. All the supporting performances are good.
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.
full review in Greek
A Hollywood movie that feels real; one that engages the tear ducts and the mind.
Enjoyed much more rewatching it. Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz are great here. The theme is a little darker than your average chick flick. Perhaps the reason I initially rated it lower - not quite what I expected.
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!
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.
