Alternately hilarious and heart-rending, 'In Her Shoes' is about two sisters with nothing in common but size 8 1/2 feet. After a calamitous falling out, they travel the bumpy road toward a true appreciation for one another -- aided along the way by the grandmother they never knew they had.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Considering it doesn't star Maggie Smith or Judi Dench, it's surprising how mature and moving this female-focused drama is."
‑ Amy Simmons, Time Out
"Very well written. All the supporting performances are good."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"It's hard to believe chick flick tripe like this was even revered with critical praise, but it happened."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"When it comes to offensive depictions of disability, even with its abundance in movies, the silence can be really deafening, no pun intended."
‑ Prairie Miller, WBAI Web Radio
"A simple yet rich drama played with humour and compassion and blessed with excellent performances."
‑ Liz Beardsworth, Empire Magazine
"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."
‑ Ken Tucker, New York Magazine/Vulture
"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."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
""In Her Shoes" is an unbalanced movie that teeters between saccharine fluff and preachy self-help sentiment."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"...the movie loses focus, meanders, and changes tone at the drop of a wine glass, but it can be touching and revealing, too."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The movie gets much, much better as it goes along."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"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."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"Cluttered and predictable; but laced with laughs and enough of an emotional payoff to make it all worthwhile."
‑ Kam Williams, Princeton Town Topics
"A Hollywood movie that feels real; one that engages the tear ducts and the mind."
‑ Lisa Ann Cockrel, Christianity Today
"Una comedia dramática moderadamente disfrutable si bien previsible, donde Toni Collette y sobre todo Shirley MacLaine elevan el interés."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
