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.

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.

This movie is based on a true story. A young man inherits his family's shoe factory in Northhampton, England after his father dies. He never cared about the business, but when he finds out the company is losing money, he's forced to cut staff. Then he comes up with an idea to switch from the conservative shoes the company typically produces to outlandish boots for cross-dressing men. He hires a flamboyant drag queen as his designer. A funny and touching movie.
