What Kinky Boots has going for it is a terrific performance from Chiwetel Ejiofor as Lola, who serves as the emotional heart of the film.

It's cheerful, predictable and far from edgy, but buoyed by a likable cast and a standout performance by the versatile Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Kinky Boots stands out for 3 reasons: 1. It's inspired by a true story. 2. It's about what it really means to be a man AND the power of fabulousness. 3. It has the formidable Chiwetel Ejiofor in drag, singing!

Kinky Boots is so loveable and its characters so charming, it may have you forgetting how much of it is firmly rooted in stereotype and cliché.

The cast of eccentrics is endearing, and the lessons of acceptance slide down easily with minimal emotional manipulation.

It's Ejiofor who takes the film from the realm of good into something verging on greatness.

...If you've seen The Full Monty (or Waking Ned Devine or Calendar Girls or Billy Elliot) then this film's surprises will be few and far between, although no less pleasant for it.

Kinky Boots is a rare and unassuming tale about everyday folk, or shall I say blokes, who climb out of their comfort zones to change their lives for the better without the help of Richard Simmons or Tony Robbins.

It's a feel-good movie that happens to dress in drag.

First-time director Julian Jarrold brings to Kinky Boots the dry humor and blue-collar insight that we expect from England's legendary Ealing Studios -- and that's high praise, indeed.

The brilliant Ejiofor (Dirty Pretty Things, Serenity) is fabulous as the outrageous Lola.

There's nothing remarkable about Kinky Boots, and only Ejiofor's spectacular performance makes it worth a trip to the theater. But that's enough.

Chiwetel Ejiofor dishes out another magnetic performance despite a storyline that wavers from innovative to obvious.
