"You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well that's what it's like when I see a store. Only it's better." -When Rebecca Bloomwood, the main character in "Confessions of a Shopaholic", said that statement, it was nice to know that I wasn't alone. At first glance of the movie trailer, it was like a sweet sale item that compelled me by its enticing, flavorful, delectable treat that I wanted a bite out of because I, too, am a shopaholic."Confessions of a <more>
Shopaholic" is like a mannequin dressed up in a Valentino dress, accented with a Chanel Belt, standing tall with Gucci boots, and a Ferragamo bag to attract you into stepping into the store. Isla Fisher played her character, Rebecca Bloomwood, so well and she executed her physical comedy scenes quite rollicking. Rebecca Bloomwood is a journalist who's an impulsive buyer that faces a huge debt because of her compulsive shopping. I was amused by the hilariousness of the movie all throughout.From the Christian Louboutin slingbacks, Zac Posen dress, Marc Jacobs jacket, a Miu Miu skirt, and Gucci bag, I give two thumbs up for Patricia Fields! Once again, the designer for "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Sex and the City" movie successfully enveloped the entire movie with glamorous, eye candy, high fashion clothes and accessories in the dull, gray New York City. Rebecca Bloomwood was clothed with bright, attractive colors that showed her vivacious personality.Is there love in store for Rebecca Bloomwood? She is being linked with a business journalist, Luke Brandon. The Armani and the Prada suave of Hugh Dancy's character, Luke Brandon, seems to lure Rebecca Bloomwood into him.Ironic isn't it, to have a movie like this in this time of economy recession. Despite the staggering credit card debts by reckless shopping, Sophie Kinsella's "Confessions of a Shopaholic" sashays its way down the catwalk to strike a pose and kill the lights!
I must say.. I had very low expectations before watching this movie.I expected it to be one of those typically annoying and rather boring chick flicks.... but I got something completely different!! The movie starts off with Rebecca Bloomwood on one of her typical days, attracted by shop displays.. unable to walk by without going inside.. etc etc.As her bills pile up.. she decides to apply for Alette magazine, but she gets there too late, and is suggested to try out for a financial magazine.. where she ends up working.You follow her life's ups and downs, her relationships , her work, in <more>
this cute movie.Isla Fisher is bubbly, funny, and cute, and acts very well.Go watch it, it wont let you down!!!
MILD SPOILERSI went to this movie thoroughly miserable on a lonely Valentine's Day and came out of it barely being able to breathe. This movie was so much more amazing than I thought it would be. There was never a time I stopped laughing. Already the all-star cast is so well meshed together. John Goodman as the loving father, so perfect. And Joan Cusack is the wacky mom you hope you don't have or are glad you do. Even the girl who played young Rebecca Bloomwood had a great performance with only five minutes on screen. Krysten Ritter who plays Suze gives an A+performance. Watch for her <more>
tear-jerking scene that catches you off guard. I hope this launches her career, I think it will. Isla Fisher is what makes this movie so great. From the first second on screen, she is 110% committed to her role, never once breaking character and always keeping the audience hooked onto her every move. Her natural charm and beauty already surpasses what the role demands. She's effortless and perfect for the role. This movie can appeal to all audiences and definitely relates to the times we're all facing, but in the end offers a subtle solution and lesson. Definitely worth 10 dollars.
I watch a lot of films. I'll watch anything from a slasher fest to some weird arty film that videos bookshelves well almost .Last year I pretty much watched every romantic comedy in existence, as that is all my male house-mate would watch. I'll watch anything but I've seen enough to know the dire ones well, we all have our own opinions .I really enjoyed this film. Maybe it is because I expected it to be really awful. Maybe I got seduced by the good cast. Or I really am a secret girly girl and just thought all the shopping was fabulous.But seriously, how did this get _that_bad <more>
an IMDb rating? I mean, I actually thought it was better than the Devil Wears Prada, which I thought was a bit of a let down. OK, the script is not original but it doesn't contain any big clangers and it doesn't try to hard. There is no wooden acting. No moments of cringe worthy awfulness, and some good cast chemistry. No, if you want to see a bad big-budget rom-com I still maintain Wimbledon is awful. Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst looked completely indifferent to one another.As for being disappointed about books. Sheesh. If you love a book never go see a movie e.g. Atonement or accept it is going to be completely different.Confessions is utterly predictable, but the characters and actors are kooky in a lovable non-Oscar lusting way. Its like cheap chocolate-you know it has hardly any rich content but you keep going back.F*** it. I really like this movie. Not quite as much as Fight Club or Dawn of the Dead, but its moving up there. Seriously.Now if only they'd do a sequel involving Christina Ricci and a load of blood...
I recently went to see this movie with a friend, and we both laughed until our sides hurt. It has absolutely everything you would want in a chick-flick. Isla Fisher was perfect as Becky Bloomwood. They couldn't have picked a better actress for her character. And Hugh Dancy as Luke Brandon was like a dream come true. Becky Bloomwood loves shopping - Not in a natural way. Virtually every time she passes by a shop window, she sees something that she must have. All her buying decisions are purely impulsive. She even drives her friend up the wall with her problem, and in result, she begs Becky <more>
to seek help at "Shoppers Anonymous" - a club for recovering shopaholics.This movie is a funny, charming, and heart-warming adaption to Kinsella's book. It even provokes a few tears. I recommend this movie to everyone I know. I'll rate it 9/10 because it simply wasn't long enough.
Perfect Valentines Day movie for those still willing to laugh. (by jklaeren)
I have been anxiously awaiting the release of this movie since seeing "Definitely, Maybe" & wasn't at all disappointed.Isla Fisher was perfectly cast in this movie. She is both funny & lovable. Her character has many faults. Among them is a young person who has yet to learn that there will be consequences for all her impulsive actions, but comparing her mistakes to the faults of the bozos who have gotten this country/world into such a mess is just plain silly As some other reviewers have done. Some of these reviewers have as yet to see the movie . These bozos are not <more>
mentioned by name in the movie, but we know who they are. My advice is to take your significant other & have a good time. Leave the outside world outside. If you also happen to be a fan of the books 1 & 2 are the basis for this movie you know what to expect & will get it.
Confessions of a Shopaholic-aholic (by misterembryo)
I confess. I fell for the Shopaholic. Isla Fisher is charming, funny, adorably goofy yet undeniably attractive. You can't help but notice her uncanny resemblance to Enchanted's Amy Adams, which is not a bad thing at all, yet she still maintains the same unique kookiness we all enjoyed in her role as Vince Vaughn's equal in The Wedding Crashers. The incredible job on the CGI'd mannequins, done by Lucasfilms' Industrial Light & Magic, is also worth mentioning.You're not supposed to go into the movie expecting it to be the next epic Titanic love story. You're <more>
expecting it to be goofy and sentimental yet genuine and entertaining, and it was all those things.Confessions of a Shopaholic is a rare gem that's worth the guilty swipe of a maximized credit card.
I was hooked by Isla's over the top, out of sight hilarious performance in Wedding Crashers. So much energy, talent, bravado in such a small package. Now, in a major comedy starring role Isla was unstoppable as she appeared in almost every frame. Having read some of the many awful reviews my expectations were low. How pleasantly surprised I was to find a solid comedy sporting an excellent cast with mostly great chemistry. There was Isla, a shopaholic supreme, reminding all of us of someone we know. Then, her romantic interest played by Hugh Dancy who sported the looks and accent that made <more>
him an instant hit with the better looking half of the audience. Rebecca's closest friend Suze played by Krysten Ritter was a joy to behold in most every one of her many scenes.Formula, predictable comedy...yes at times...and many other times quite original. It was almost worth the price of admission to admire the fashion parade without having to pay for any of the very dear items.The movie's budget was likely high considering cameo type supporting performances by Joan Cussack, John Goodman and none other than Kriston Scott Thomas. They are NOT the reason to see this pleasant, feel good comedy. And then there were the uncredited stars of the film...the mannequins....I'll button my lips except to add the words original and hilarious.Add a sprinkling of serious moments and the acknowledgment of the dangers of true shopaholic activity to the major dose of comedic situations and we have the type of wholesome, upbeat comedy we need to see more often in these times of doom and gloom. In the end lots of audience laughs and smiles throughout and really that is what a day at your local movie theater is all about.
Take an adorable girl, dress her with a few complications, add some slapstick comedy, throw in just a pinch of romance; et voilà, a colourful, sweet and funny rom-com.This movie adaptation of the Shopaholic books delivers a light but yet truly enjoyable comedy. Isla Fisher's is back on the screen with an interpretation that matched the one that catapulted her career in Wedding Crashers. A sweet and lovable personality that will overshadow the less likable facets of lies and compulsive buying in which she draws herself. The romance doesn't steal the show either, flourishing gently on <more>
the side and giving the final note of a well executed feel good comedy.You could argue the lack of seriousness in which this disorder is being treated but I believe this is not what the movie tries to achieve. Don't look for an intellectual masterpiece but instead sit down, get comfy and relax cause this is a chick flick that will give you a few laugh-out-loud moments.
