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.
November 1, 2005
A simple story, lovingly polished.
October 20, 2005
The movie gets much, much better as it goes along.
October 11, 2005
Very well written. All the supporting performances are good.

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.
October 8, 2005
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.

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.
October 7, 2005
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.
October 7, 2005
Collette's performance is so full of juice and the beneficiary of good dialogue that Diaz's may end up being underrated.
October 7, 2005
In Her Shoes is aimed squarely at a demographic -- grown-up women -- who aren't often catered to by Hollywood, and it's competent and sometimes charming. But there's a soap-opera blandness to it that even the gifted cast can't overcome.
October 7, 2005
The characters seem authentic -- until the chick-flick template distorts them.
October 7, 2005
Try on these Shoes. Even if you don't like the style, you will love where they take you.
October 7, 2005
A genuinely heartfelt look at sibling rivalry, and the bonds (and battles) that sisters are heir to.
October 7, 2005
Schmaltzy, but reasonably entertaining.
October 7, 2005
In Her Shoes may be corny, but its tenderness is genuine, and the movie's affection for its characters is awfully contagious.
October 7, 2005
Never lurked a Chick Flick that looked fairer on the urge to talk things out. Never lurked one with a smarter cast or a more cluttered screenplay, full of mirth and sorrow.
October 7, 2005
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.
