      Paul Attanasio Washington Post ... nearly unwatchable espionage comedy... Jan 4, 2018 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times If The Man with One Red Shoe had been funny, it wouldn't have mattered that it was a witless remake. But it is not funny. Rated: 1/4 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 3/5 Aug 15, 2004 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...an entirely forgettable entry within Hanks' early filmography. Rated: 2.5/4 Jun 10, 2016 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Jul 23, 2005 Full Review David Cornelius eFilmCritic.com Red Shoe is sharp, clever, and witty as hell, ranking among the most likable Hanks films of the 1980s.

      steve d Suprisingly unamusing given its talented cast. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I have always loved this film Some very funny scenes These scenes I will rewatch Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A good spoof about the CIA trying to erase a mistake. A man who has little touch with reality is over analize by the CIA an thought a dangeress spy leading to much trouble for them. Good laughs thru out the movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Stab from the past and is hilarious. This reminds me of Fish called Wanda and The Pink Panther in the wacky stories told. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Great spoof on the spy movies that were all the rage at the time. I love cheesy eighties movies, and this is one I always go back to. Reminds me of when I was a kid. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Underrrated early Tom Hanks fliick. Convoluted and ridiculous, but really funny.
