THE NEXT BEST THING — In Stores July 3rd!

More early word on IN HER SHOES, the movie.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Steven Rea writes. "theHollywood fare between now and Thanksgiving promises the proverbial something for everybody, and quality-wise the studios may actually deliver."

"Philadelphia looks great in Curtis Hanson's adaptation of the Jennifer Weiner best-seller about the family travails of two sisters (Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz), their estranged grandmother (Shirley MacLaine), and the men in their lives. The ultimate chick flick delivers with poignancy, humor and heart."

IHS is number three on Steven's most-anticipated list. Number one is History of Violence, and my brother was one of the producers on that, so I can't be that upset.

And the Lexington Herald-Leader, writing from Toronto about Kentucky connections in the fall's big movies, says "my favorite connection is Jennifer Weiner, a writer whose name you may remember from these pages years ago. Since her Herald-Leader days, she's become a best-selling author, and one of her books has just been turned into a movie starring Cameron Diaz and Shirley MacLaine. All of us ink-stained wretches should be so lucky as to have our work become a great movie like In Her Shoes."


Finally, I've been neglectful about linking to my Inquirer columns. Here's today's article about seeing the movie for the first time (that I cried was perhaps not surprising. That I cried as soon as the Fox logo appeared -- not so great).
