"Chick-Flicks" just don't get any better than In Her Shoes
Okay Ladies it is time to gather up all the important women in your
life, leave the boys at home and head to the movie theater for In Her
Shoes staring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacClaine.
This comedy/drama begins with Rose (Collette) having to pick up her
drunk and passed out sister, Maggie (Diaz) from her 10-year high school
When Rose tries to take Maggie back home where she stills lives with
her parents, Maggie is kicked out by her wicked stepmother, Sydelle.
Rose has no choice but to take her sister back home with her.
From here the tension and conflict grows as Rose and Maggie are polar
opposites. In fact, the only similarity they share is their size
eight-and-a-half shoes. Maggie's irresponsible and promiscuous ways
eventually drive the two apart after a very awkward and dramatic
After the fight, Maggie finds herself in Florida and Rose finds herself
searching for a change. Although angry and apart, the two can't help
but miss the other desperately.
The movie, based on the novel by Jennifer Weiner, was brilliantly
re-written for the big screen by Susannah Grant and directed by Curtis
All of the actors did an award winning performance although the Oscar
should definitely go to Collette who simply shined.
I believe that Cameron Diaz had a little too much of the spotlight in
the trailers and promotional poster, but fortunately was not all the
focus in the actual movie.
Overall In Her Shoes gets four out of four stars. This is definitely a
movie that will make you realize exactly how important all the women in
your life truly are. It's just not possible for a chick-flick to get
any better than this!
