  1. The movie is so well-cast, sympathetically acted and delicately directed -- and so genuinely touching and funny -- that it leaps right out of the narrow confines of the family bonding formula.
  2. 88
    Starts out with the materials of an ordinary movie and becomes a rather special one.
  3. 88
    It's wonderfully satisfying: Collette, MacLaine and Diaz are exceptional, and the mix of humor and heartbreak is perfectly calibrated.
  4. Reviewed by: Mike Clark
    This is the most enjoyable film of its type in recent memory.
  5. No great claims should be made for In Her Shoes. If the aim here was to show how chick lit can become just plain lit, the effort failed. But there is something to be said for froth when it's expertly whipped.
