A clunky flick that doesn't think at all, and ends up aping the worst traits of both siblings: Far too big and way too shallow, it's a bloated lightweight of a movie.

It would be a terrible shame if half the population didn't see it because the film was labeled unjustly.

It's a chick flick for non-chicks too, one of those movies that makes you laugh and cry and leaves you feeling satisfied and drained and vaguely embarrassed for having such a good time.

It's difficult to think of a Hanson film in which the performances are wanting, and Shoes is no exception.
October 7, 2005
Hanson and his three leading ladies have given us the gift of a finely crafted movie full of humbling and humorous truths.
October 7, 2005
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.
October 6, 2005
The movie works neither as a comedy nor as a lame melodrama -- its entertainment value is embarrassingly feeble.

It ultimately emerges as a movie of warmth, wit and wisdom.

This marvelous, up-with-the-lark movie stays sunny all day, with wit and intelligence to spare.

No great claims should be made for In Her Shoes. But there is something to be said for froth when it's expertly whipped.
October 6, 2005
As it was winding down, I remember thinking I wasn't ready for this movie to end. These were people I liked, and I wasn't ready to give them up.
October 6, 2005
It's Hanson's astute directing that makes the film's life lessons go down painlessly, turning the smartly entertaining In Her Shoes into a comfy fit for both sexes.
October 6, 2005
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.
October 6, 2005
Classy junk.
October 6, 2005
In Her Shoes doesn't leave much to subtlety or chance, but MacLaine, the one-time gamine, proves she is not just a star. She's an actress.
