4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Frivolous Fun! February 15, 2009
I have a confession to make...every now and then I love to see movies that are purely frivolous, just plain fun and, well, on the girly side. Confessions of a Shopaholic is the perfect combination of these qualities. It's full of silly, completely ridiculous situations, witty dialogue, slapstick humor and lighthearted entertainment that reminds every girl about the excitement, and danger, of shopping.

Isla Fisher plays Rebecca Bloomwood, a shopping-addicted New York journalist who suddenly finds herself buried under credit card debt and without a job. In order to pay off her bills and move closer to her dream, Rebecca takes a job at a finance magazine that's all about saving money. Through a series of highly improbable, but absolutely hilarious, events Rebecca becomes the magazine's poster girl for personal finance -while hiding overdue bills under her bed.

Shopaholic quickly becomes predictable, leaving the audience only to wonder how and when the next plot point will occur. While this may bother some film goers, I didn't mind it because that's the kind of movie I was expecting. It's fun and entertaining enough to help you escape from your own credit card debt for a little while, but not phenomenal. Fisher is irresistible and will keep you wondering what kind of crazy thing she's going to do next.

But men beware -even though Shopaholic is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, this movie is purely for women. The only guys who were in the theater when I went seemed like they were dragged by their significant others (except my dad, who likes Isla Fisher). The movie's PG rating also implies that the movie is intended for families. There were a few little girls in the theater when I went, and they seemed to be having a better time than the adults.

Format:Blu-ray
Sophia Kinsella (a pen name for writer Madeline Wickham) is known for her "Shopaholic" novels which have been a hit in the UK. Having published a total of five novels, Touchstone Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films has a film based on the first two novels ("Confessions of a Shopaholic" and "Shopaholic Takes Manhattan) released back in 2001 and 2002.

Taking on the directorial reigns of the film is P.J. Hogan ("My Best Friends Wedding") and a screenplay by writers Tracey Jackson ("The Other End of the Line"), Tim Firth ("Calendar Girls") and Kayla Alpert (who produced many episodes for the TV series "Ally McBeal"). Music for the film is by James Newton Howard ("The Sixth Sense", "Pretty Woman", "Primal Fear", etc.) and cinematography by Jo Willems ("30 Days of Night" and "Rocket Science").

The film would feature many all-star talents which include Isla Fisher ("Wedding Crashers", "Definitely, Maybe" and "The Lookout"), Hugh Dancy ("Black Hawk Down", "Ella Enchanted" and "Basic Instinct 2'), Krysten Ritter ("Frost", "27 Dresses" and "Gilmore Girls"), Joan Cusack ("War, Inc.", "Say Anything", "The School of Rock" and "Chicken Little"), John goodman ("Rosanne", "Cars and "Bee Movie"), John Lithgow ("Dexter, "Dreamgirls" and "3rd Rock from the Sun") and Kristin Scott Thomas ("The Golden Compass", "Mission Impossible" and "I Loved You So Long").

The film revolves around Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher), a writer for a gardening magazine who lives with her friend Suze (Krysten Ritter) and is known for her overuse of her credit cards (around a dozen of them) which she constantly uses in order to purchase the latest designer clothing in Manhattan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun March 1, 2009
A Kid's Review
Seeing the preview in theaters of Confessions of a Shopaholic gave me the impression of a cheesy and obnoxious movie I was not about to see. I wanted to give it a chance, so I went with a friend one night and had a blast. It's one of those movies that defeats any pretense because the person behind the commercial merely did a bad job.

The best part of the movie is Isla Fischer and her millions of clothes. She is such an adorable, bubbly person who is inspirational, motivated, and confident. Occasionally she embarrasses herself without realizing and can bury herself under mountains of debt, but she emerges from the moments of confrontation as a stronger person.

Maybe I should get this checked out, but I found myself agreeing with everything she described about the euphoria of shopping. The clothes are out there and the compilations are unique, and I was drooling the whole time. Not to mention her very impressive and handsome beau.

One aspect I accredit the movie for and what somewhat lacks is the relationship between the main character and her boss. I'm the glad their romance didn't dominate the storyline because, ultimately, it became a story about a person finding out what she truly wants from life. And Hugh Dancy is a strong enough actor to portray more than one emotion in the little screen time he has compared to Isla. The only major cliche I caught was the lie, revealing/betrayal, makeup stage of the romantic comedy relationship.

Confessions of a Shopaholic is a fun romp I'd like to see more than once. It's goofy and funny, sweet, and a very feel good movie. I'm surprised the ratings on here are reduced to a three!
