Every moment in Kinky Boots is screamingly, painfully obvious. The only way the film could have surprised me would have been if the projectionist accidentally spliced in a reel of Cannibal Holocaust.

The main problem is that it's not very kinky at all.

I can't think of any reason for you to see it, but I can't think of any reason not to, either.

The film falls short of its initially obvious dramatic goals due to the shallow depths that screenwriters Geoff Deane and Tim Firth take their characters.

It would be nice to be able to report that Kinky Boots is a kick in the pants. But this conventional, manipulative British import feels like a re-soled pair of shoes that unquestionably have seen their day.

[An] utterly vapid distillation of a "true story," crammed into the tired old Full Monty formula.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Overall, it's breezy, forgettable fluff, but 'kinky'? Obviously, the term is relative.

Ejiofor sure can sashay and belt out a show-stopping number, but Kinky Boots is too busy putting on its heels to kick 'em off and boogie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 8, 2006
Far too insubstantial to make any interesting use of its social agenda, and the easy answers it finds about prejudice and bigotry strain credibility.

Kinky Boots is pretty routine fare with its we-must-save-the-company debut feature by helmer Julian Jarrold.

December 4, 2006
A tepid crowd-pleasing Brit comedy/drama that offers nothing fresh.
Full Review | Original Score: D

Our friends across the pond have gone daft trying to satisfy a worldwide desire to see a reserved populace get plucky.

The recipe for this silly, quasi-inspirational British comedy comes from the same cookbook that gave us The Full Monty.

Yet another one of those heartwarmers about Great Britain's plucky eccentrics.

Kinky Boots shoehorns what should be a fresh story into the same old pair of narrative galoshes.

Director Julian Jarrold and screenwriters Geoff Deane and Tim Firth trade in hackneyed dualities.
April 21, 2006
Lola, at least the way Ejiofor plays her, has a sad story she's eager to tell. The movie never entirely figures out what to do with this.

undercooked to an amateurish degree

Rigged for your pleasure...everything is played up for schmaltz value or dopey laughs.

Why are movies 'inspired by a true story' always the most contrived?
