Confessions of a Shopaholic...My Take!

It is a pretty well known fact that I love chick flicks. S*x and the City and the whole Carrie Bradshaw phenomenon....I'm a huge fan! Read all the books, own all the seasons on DVD. I have read all of the Confessions of a Shopaholic books.

I go to the movies to be entertained. I'm just looking for a laugh! No, "Confessions of a Shopaholic" is not "deep", but it does have a storyline!

I absolutely loved this film. I think Isla Fisher was the perfect actress for this movie. I am not very familiar with Hugh Dancy but I thought he played his part very well.

It is a difficult time for the American economy. Don't go into this movie with that in mind. Take your mind on vacation...break away from reality for a while!

The clothing was a bit over the top...but what do you expect from the one and only, Patricia Field...who dressed Carrie for all those years!! Fashion is a huge part of this movie and who better than Patricia?? She ROCKS!

Both my sister and I enjoyed this movie was entertaining! I recommend it... provided you are a fan of fashion and a fan of labels! If you "speak Prada"'ll love this film!!

Some people have been quite upset with the timing of this movie.

However - that being said - it's just a movie! It's entertainment! It's not supposed to be real life!

Looking forward to a view of the clothing...looks kinda - neat!

Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009) is about a girl that wont be free with the shopping. What ever she like she buys. Until her credit card got canceled.
So many bills to pay for the shops life looks horrible for her, but she wont give up. She take her self as a sample and wrote column about how to handle money. It get more popular than any one thought and she because rich in days. Free movies is where I saw this movie it was the simple way

I saw Isla interviewed about the movie a few times - she's delightful

I usually get a bit annoyed when movies make women look like idiots who will kill each other over Gucci boots - but then again sometimes I just take things too seriously ;)

BTW - LOVE the snow angels

I don't do designer anything... but I really enjoyed 'The Devil Wears Prada' because I love Meryl Streep. A couple of the other actors in that were good too!
So this one, I'd probably enjoy Isla and her character. I didn't read the books but the previews for the movie look pretty cute!

I've not heard of this movie. I agree that it is just a movie and people should just get over it. If I go to a movie, I don't try to over analyze it. I go for the entertainment value mostly.
