Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Starts out with the materials of an ordinary movie and becomes a rather special one.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Manipulative, but confidently so, and improbably but consistently affecting.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
A rollicking, mascara-smearing, intergenerational coed crowd-pleaser. Imagine "Sex and the City" negotiating "Terms of Endearment" with "The Golden Girls."

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
It's Hanson's astute directing that makes the film's life lessons go down painlessly, turning the smartly entertaining In Her Shoes into a comfy fit for both sexes.

Director Curtis Hanson has made a chick flick with substance as well as style.

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
Could it be that the director of "L.A. Confidential," "Wonder Boys," and "8 Mile" has been defeated by characters on a first-name basis with brisket, by women who, in Susannah Grant's screenplay, represent avatars of joyless workaholism and joyless sexaholism?

Entertaining enough, but it's more pat than provocative -- this is what makes it a bona fide audience pleaser while keeping it from drawing real blood.

By Jack Mathews
A bungled mess that spends an hour creating two characters whose lives are about as believable as a successful ambush set by Wile E. Coyote for the Roadrunner.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
The people who made this film -- particularly the ones responsible for the story and the dialogue -- should look no further when trying to understand why In Her Shoes lands with such little impact. The characters seem authentic -- until the chick-flick template distorts them.
