Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Unlike this director's best work, High Heels has no real mirth and not even enough energy to keep it lively."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Despite the presence of two great actresses, High Heels is a disappointing film, as a murder mystery and mother-daughter melodrama."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The director knows what he wants to say, but isn't too sure how to go about saying it."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"It's bright and spunky and playfully melodramatic, but something's missing."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"Not funny, suspenseful, or original."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Pedro Almodovar's films are an acquired taste, and with High Heels I am at last beginning to acquire it."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Witty and snappy Almodovar....as usual, but still great fun."
‑ Gabe Leibowitz, eCinemaCenter.com
