In Her Shoes (2005)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Well Heeled

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

It took Curtis Hanson two decades to become an "A" list director (L.A. Confidential, Wonder Boys, 8 Mile) and now he seems determined not to get pinned down, puddle jumping through various genres and leaving a disparate trail of good pictures. Even at 130 minutes, the pastel-colored In Her Shoes is an implausibly sharp, lively Chick Flick. The uptight, Bridget Jones-like Rose (Toni Collette) works in a Philadelphia law office, while her raggedly sexy sister Maggie (Cameron Diaz) constantly makes a mess of things. After a vicious fight, Maggie disappears to Florida, seeking their estranged grandmother (Shirley MacLaine). Hanson and screenwriter Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich) give each character -- except the girls' vindictive stepmother -- a true voice and a life breath; the "types" effortlessly jell into people worth caring about. Somehow, both Ridley and Tony Scott are credited as co-producers.
