In Her Shoes
Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
Shirley MacLaine has played "lovable" grandmas before in much worse movies, but this old lady is wise and patient, and anchors an above-average dramedy. Cameron Diaz's ditzy lines sound like they were intended for a sitcom, but she delivers them sincerely without aiming for a joke, because after all, her character doesn't know that she's funny. At this point, it's probably beyond hope that Curtis Hanson will return to the great heights of his best movies.
