My Review:

There was a point when I was sitting there watching “In Her Shoes” where I was thinking – this movie is so good, I hope it doesn’t end too soon! We’re first introduced to two sisters, seemingly opposites. Rose is played by Toni Collette – she’s the “good girl” – the smart and sensible one with a job but not really a life. Then there’s Maggie, played by Cameron Diaz. Maggie lives life on the edge, didn’t finish school, can’t keep a job, and gets on everyone’s nerves. Her big sister feels responsible for her and comes to her rescue once too often. When Maggie hits rock bottom, she discovers a grandmother she never knew she had. Ella, played by the glorious Shirley MacLaine, lives in a retirement village in Florida. When Maggie enters the picture, she shakes up Ella’s life, and causes her to look at decisions she made in the past. This is a movie about relationships, about learning from each other and growing together. There are plenty of laughs – so don’t let your guy stay home because it’s a “chick flick” – he’ll enjoy it, too! By the way, I’m a huge Shirley MacLaine fan – did you know she has a website? It’s great! http://www.shirleymaclaine.com.
