Consensus: Honesty and solid performances make In Her Shoes a solid fit for all audiences.

Time Out

Considering it doesn't star Maggie Smith or Judi Dench, it's surprising how mature and moving this female-focused drama is.

Very well written. All the supporting performances are good.

It's hard to believe chick flick tripe like this was even revered with critical praise, but it happened.

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.

Anthony Lane
New Yorker

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.

Cole Smithey

"In Her Shoes" is an unbalanced movie that teeters between saccharine fluff and preachy self-help sentiment.

New York Observer

The movie gets much, much better as it goes along.

Tasha Robinson
AV Club

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.

Kam Williams
Princeton Town Topics

Cluttered and predictable; but laced with laughs and enough of an emotional payoff to make it all worthwhile.

In Her Shoes is a boring awful film with an a bad cast and a flawed story. Cameron Diaz is passed her prime, and she has made her one good film in recent times,… More

Pretty good. That's all I can say as I don't remember much of it.

Really enjoyed this film, Cameron Diaz was fantastic and it's a really heart wrenching film. You really feel empathetic towards the two sisters. A must… More
