Truly enchanting shoes
21 September 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

If The Shoe Fits is a modern reworking of the Cinderella legend with Rob Lowe, Jennifer Grey and a whole bunch French players. Just getting a trip to Paris to shoot there would have been reason enough for me to take the roles.

A wardrobe girl at designer Rob Lowe's house of fashion, Jennifer Grey is a bit of a drudge who lives with a pair of models who think they're something special. But one day Grey finds a pair of abandoned shoes who a kind fairy godmother enchants. She wears those and she's Cheryl Tiegs. And does Lowe ever notice, especially since she wants to design shoes for his house.

Lowe's a bit of a stretch as Prince Charming. As is said his world is populated by images of beauty. He finds it hard to relate to people. Not the most charming of fashion princes, but love always has its own reasons.

Lowe, the successor to Tyrone Power in those hero/heel roles and Grey and the rest of the cast perform well in this modern fable of Cinderella. Worth a look if you are a fan of the aging Brat Packer.
