Enjoyable movie to watch about success in succession of father's boots business. Finding his true identity trough hard feeling of truth, friendship and success. Fun to watch.

This movie is somewhat predictable and drags a little (pun intended), but I enjoyed it. The cast is very good. The film was adapted into a Broadway musical. Kinky Boots is rated PG-13 for thematic material involving sexuality and for language.

A camp marketing fairy tale (pun intended) based on an actual story—the factory really does exist—whose message of acceptance and understanding, though loud and clear, is cushioned by a few exuberant drag routines and Ejiofor’s standout performance as Lola, a man more at home in a sexy frock and lip gloss yet whose delightfully acerbic tongue hides more than a few emotional wounds. One of those rollicking feel good films that goes down easily and entertains without insulting cast or audience with crass stereotypes or PC manifestos. And that final catwalk is enough to bring the house down.

Wonderful little film - lovely performances, especially by Chiwetel Ejiofor as Lola/Simon. Definitely recommend to one and all, all ages.

A wonderful little film that got transformed into a massively successful and beloved Broadway show, KINKY BOOTS is the story of a little shoe factory in England that decides to diversify its product line to include a range of so-called "kinky boots" with reinforced heels for transgender women. (For the uninitiated, KINKY BOOTS is not a musical film, unlike the stage show.) The film is funny and charismatic, especially invigourated by the acting chops and comedic timing of actor Chiwetel Ejiofor as Simon/Lola. I love this kind of film with a good message. It's nice and fun, full of heart. I recommend it.

Fun, if a bit formulaic. Loved Chiwetel Ejiofor in this.

Still a delightful storytelling — holds up on repeat viewings. Actor Chiwetel Ejiofor [later famous for "12 Years a Slave"] brings a delightful, sympathetic character to life in a wonderful way. Also: GREAT soundtrack. •RECOMMENDED•

Funny and efficient. A good typical British movie!

I enjoyed this movie! I wasn't sure what to expect but it was fun and funny with good characters and a feel good story line. I thought the manufacturing scenes were really interesting too.

"Ask any woman what she likes most in a man. Compassion, tenderness, sensitivity. Traditionally the female virtues. Perhaps what women secretly desire is a man who is fundamentally a woman."

"Burgundy. Please, God, tell me I have not inspired something burgundy. Red. Red. Red, Charlie boy. Red is the colour of sex! Burgundy is the colour of hot water bottles! Red is the colour of sex and fear and danger and signs that say, 'Do Not Enter.' All my favourite things in life."
