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!

Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a movie that has a scene in which two women are on an elevator, one holding a bag of groceries who notices the other woman's shoes. She looks down and something falls out of the bag and spills all over the woman's shoes. She apologizes while the other woman remains speechless. Is it Confessions of a Shopaholic or a different movie? Thank you.
