In Her Shoes

 

In-her-shoes-poster Made to ease elderly women to sleep in their theater seats "In Her Shoes" is a limp moralizing story about two sisters—Maggie (Cameron Diaz), a slutty petty thief, and Rose (Toni Colette) an uptight Philadelphia attorney. While wearing out her houseguest-welcome on Rose’s couch, Maggie goes one grievous offence too far by sleeping with Rose’s shifty coworker boyfriend. This late inciting incident sends the illiterate Maggie off to Florida to reunite with her long lost grandmother (Shirley MacLaine) on a cheesy quest at redemption that necessarily includes discovering that her nutty mother committed suicide. Based on the novel by Jennifer Weiner, and directed by Curtis Hanson ("L.A. Confidential"), "In Her Shoes" is an unbalanced comedy that teeters between saccharine fluff and preachy self-help sentiment.

Rated PG-13. 129 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
