    Another formulaic, paint-by-numbers Hollywood overdeveloped movie with flat, formulaic characters and numerous button-pushing scenes. The dog was the only genuine character.

    Girls might like this, but then most women would surrender to any film that simply put the words "Someone is getting married." up on the screen. Guys, on the other hand, may leave this movie with their eyes strained from all the rolling. The women performers are very good, the men borderline terrible (its a mystery why Curtis Hanson would hire these maniquins). I wouldn't mind glossy Girls might like this, but then most women would surrender to any film that simply put the words "Someone is getting married." up on the screen.

  1. When superb craftsmanship, discipline, and risk-taking (toning down Diaz and MacLaine; treating Collette as a desirous leading lady) are applied to accessible, even frivolous material, the results can be deeply pleasurable. In Her Shoes isn’t a masterpiece, but it’s the best Saturday-night movie millions of people are going to go to.

    Artificial in both its dialogue and its construction, the film only works - on those occasions when it works - because of the sincere performance by the underrated Toni Collette.
  3. Director Curtis Hanson has made a chick flick with substance as well as style.
