Overview

Curtis Hanson's adaptation of Jennifer Weiner's novel In Her Shoes stars Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz as a pair of very close but very different sisters. Free-wheeling irresponsible Maggie Feller Diaz gets through her life thanks to her remarkable looks and her lack of scruples. She constantly goes to her straight-laced, plain-Jane successful lawyer sister Rose Collette for financial help. The two sisters have been very close to each other in part because their troubled mother died when they were girls. Right about the same time that Maggie discovers hidden letters that reveal she and Rose have a grandmother, Maggie does something to betray Rose's trust. Maggie sets off for Florida to find the grandmother. A failed workplace romance forces Rose to rethink her career, a career that has been the center of her life. As Rose tentatively begins a new relationship and Maggie gets to know her grandmother played by Shirley MacLaine, the two learn a dark family secret that helps smooth the path toward reconciliation.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Unlike many adaptations of novels, Curtis Hanson's In Her Shoes feels like the filmmakers retained almost everything that happened in the book. The film is loaded with incidents, events, and behavior. In lesser hands, the sheer amount of all those storytelling materials would sink most films; however, Hanson has proven to be one of the best workmanlike directors of his time. He can work, and work well, in any genre because he understands both how to tell a story and how to put a film together that is always entertaining to watch. As he does with each of his films, Hanson gets superb work from his actors. Cameron Diaz surprises by playing a character almost wholly unsympathetic for much of the film. Her willingness to play a selfish, self-loathing, good-time girl goes against her endearing image, allowing her to improve as an actor without sacrificing an ounce of her sex appeal. Toni Collette believably plays both halves of her ambivalence toward Diaz's character, always tempered by her character's straight-laced, in-control role as the big sister. She gets the best moment in the film when she discovers an act of betrayal committed by her sister and hits her with an insult so perfect that the audience may laugh until a split second later when they realize how devastating a remark it is. Shirley MacLaine shines as the long-lost grandmother of the sisters. While MacLaine has a history of playing larger than life, this time around she plays a very grounded older woman who knows what she is, knows what she has done, and has the strength to try to make things right. Like the two main characters, In Her Shoes is flawed but certainly appealing.

    A reviewer

    If this movie doesn't help you understand the true meaning of forgiveness, you are out of touch with your very soul. I was so moved by this and everyone I know, that has seen this film, felt the same way.

    Better than I thought

    I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this movie. I agree with many of the reviewers that it seemed sex was the central point of the first part of the movie. I absolutely love Toni Collette so I knew I'd be getting a great performance out of her. I'm not a big Diaz fan but she was tolerable in this movie -- even though her character was absolutely disgusting. It was a relatable movie about two sisters and how different they are but how much they need each other as well. It was a touching movie -- I did feel it got a bit too much between them. However, there was a lot more reality in the movie than I initially thought. Good movie.

    Not an enjoyable movie!

    How this film ever made it into the comedy genre must be quite a stretch of the imagination. I found it not only depressing but even disturbing. The relationship between the two sisters is almost pathologically masochistic, love-hate-envy-resentment to the extreme. Not even the magic of Shirley McLaine could save this horrible plot. These are someone shoes that definetely are too tight for me. If you like disfunctional relationships, then you will enjoy this movie.

    Good Chick Flick

    The first half of this movie is very slow moving,and is filled with a lot of unnecessary references to sex. However, I'm glad I didn't turn it off, because it really picks up in the last hour. Shirley McClaine is great as Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz's long-lost grandmother. I enjoyed Toni Collette's role, but I'm not a big Cameron Diaz fan. The last half of this movie is what saved it for me.

    Great Movie

    The first 10 mins. do have a few sex scenes but the movie considerably cools down after that. IMHO, this movie should've gotten an "R" rating. It was a great movie. I did not expect to like it at all but I ended up loving it. I even bought the DVD when I sent back the rental. The movie shows the tremendous character growth of both sisters. Maggie (played by Cameron Diaz) becomes more responsible and Rose (played by Toni Collette) becomes more free and fun. Despite the rift that comes between them, their separation helps them become more confident and appreciate each other more. This movie will make you laugh, think, and cry. I was surprised by Cameron Diaz's performance. I was used to seeing her in roles such as "Charlie's Angels" but she is also great in serious roles. This role shows that she is more dynamic than she lets on.

    Absolutely Fabulous!

    This is a wonderful film about the intricacies of human relationships. Toni Colette is perfect as the slightly condascending older sister and Cameron Diaz sparkles as the vulnerable younger sister trying to find her footing. This is a movie women can relate to and enjoy many times over. I highly recommend this movie to women of all ages!

    Not For Children

    I thought this movie was very raunchy. There was probably 5 sex scenes in the first 10 minutes of the movie. This is not something that should be encouraged.
