If You Liked The Devil Wears Prada...,
This review is from: Confessions of a Shopaholic (DVD)
Then you'll hate this movie.
I've read neither of the books on which these movies are based, so that is NOT factored into my review.
My initial draw to this movie was due to the fact that I thought it MIGHT be a bit like Devil Wears Prada...a comedic insight to a NY fashion focused life.
It was anything but.
The acting was generally horrid, whatever elements of the plot that could have been funny fell totally flat...this is an instance where ALL of the funny scenes were shown in the trailer with nothing left over for the movie.
The only part of the movie that I found 'cute' was the friendship between the main character and her best friend.
I was extremely disappointed in the lack of entertainment value of this movie all around and honestly blame the director and screenwriter for screwing this up. Maybe throw some blame the actors ways as well.
What a shame...it could have been quite funny.
