Confessions of a Shopaholic

Cute-as-a-button Isla Fisher (aka Mrs Sacha Baron Cohen) teams up with Aussie director P.J.Hogan (Muriel's Wedding, Peter Pan) to bring us a timely story of a young shopaholic who maxes out her credit card and gets a job at a financial magazine to help repay her bills.

Based on the book by Sophie Kinsella, Confessions follows Rebecca Bloomwood (Fisher) as she skyrockets up the ranks of her company when she writes some unwittingly imaginative advice columns, on topics such as comparing investment to buying shoes.

I actually dont know if this movie will be worth the trouble in watching. I need humour, sensitivity and romance...

Excited to see how this translates

Im excited to see how this film translates from books to film. The books are amazing and hope that the movie relates well to the writing by Sophie Kinsella. Im going to the premiere tonight so hopefully I wont be disapointed :)

As a young lady who can't say no to a beautiful dress or accessory, Isla Fisher is not to be denied, and her irrepressible comic personality overcomes a number of the film's impediments.

More Topshop than Top Gun, this Bruckheimer effort sees Fisher finally make good on her Wedding Crashers promise in a film that manages to be both a frothy romcom and a cautionary tale on the perils of plastic splurgery.

It glories in its silliness, and the actors are permitted the sort of goofy acting that distinguished screwball comedy. We get double takes, slow burns, pratfalls, exploding clothes wardrobes, dropped trays, tear-away dresses, missing maids of honor, overnight fame, public disgrace and not, amazingly, a single obnoxious cat or dog.

As unrealistic as the talking mannequins, but we’re pleasantly surprised by how good this movie makes us feel.

Fashion porn for those who believe spending is the best way out of a recession.

Though you might wonder whether there's room in a movie marketplace that already feels overstocked with romantic comedies, Confessions of a Shopaholic arrives fashionably late and dressed to kill.

The end product is surprisingly charmless -- a shrill "Devil Wears Prada"/"Bridget Jones"/"Sex and the City" knockoff that keeps threatening to fall apart at the seams.
