Movie Tears

After DIE HARD 5, maybe I’ll see  THIS ONE.

Red-Hat DistrictWatching In Her Shoes.
About midway through In Her Shoes we see Rose Feller (Toni Collette, always a delight), semi-professional dogwalker, being yanked down the streets of Philadelphia by a team of mismatched pooches. It's a good metaphor for this film, which is propelled by several different stories at once, and some are livelier than others. That's an eye-of-the-beholder thing, of course, and there were many in the audience who were happy-teary puddles by the end of the film.

PUHLEESE!  “happy-teary puddles” indeed.  To get cleansed I’d have to then go see, immediately,  DIE HARD 6.  Let me release the inner man will ya.
