Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Overall, it's breezy, forgettable fluff, but 'kinky'? Obviously, the term is relative."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"It's a feel-good movie that happens to dress in drag."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"Brit comedy is more warm and quirky than kinky."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"It's cheerful, predictable and far from edgy, but buoyed by a likable cast and a standout performance by the versatile Chiwetel Ejiofor."
‑ Kevin Lally, Film Journal International
"...never quite as tedious as one might've expected..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"You'll giggle and laugh and never look at those things on your feet the same way again."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Oh, do come in, love -- welcome to the Twee Brit Comedy Factory."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"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."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"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!"
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"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."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"It's a predictable and preachy stab at a comedy with heart, and its subversive silliness is eclipsed by an overwrought humanity."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"Ejiofor's latest, Kinky Boots, may not enshrine itself in the halls of movie greatness, but it proves that this versatile British actor can do nearly anything."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"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."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
"A tepid crowd-pleasing Brit comedy/drama that offers nothing fresh."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The cast of eccentrics is endearing, and the lessons of acceptance slide down easily with minimal emotional manipulation."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Denton Record Chronicle (TX)
