In Her Shoes (3 stars)

This tale of two sisters — wild-child Maggie (Cameron Diaz) and straight-laced Rose (Toni Collette) — is based on the theory that they have nothing in common except for their size 8-1/2 feet. But Maggie’s discovery of a long-lost grandmother (Shirley MacLaine) the girls never knew they had could be the thing that brings them together for good. Ridley Scott sits in as producer on this comedy-drama based on a novel by Jennifer Weiner.

Geoff’s Comments: Well, ANY movie in which a male begs his bride-to-be to open up and share her feelings, or that ends with the female protagonist gleefully bouncing and dancing back into the crowd at a “Reggae theme” wedding, can be be called nothing other then a chick flick. HOWEVER the character development of the two sisters, and some good dramatic and comic moments with Shirley MacClaine, made for an entertaining journey. Not necessarily realistic, but entertaining.
