Overview

A Manhattan shopaholic Isla Fisher whose buying sprees have buried her in immense debt lands a columnist gig dishing out financial advice in this Touchstone comedy based on Sophie Kinsella's series of books. P.J. Hogan My Best Friend's Wedding directs, with producing duties being handled by Jerry Bruckheimer. Rebecca Bloomwood Fisher can't seem to break her habit for making impulsive purchases, and while she's always decked out in the latest styles, her credit card bills are as thick as a telephone book. If Rebecca could somehow manage to land her dream job at a high-profile fashion magazine, perhaps she could transform what is now a simple addiction into something that could really benefit her professionally. When Rebecca becomes an advice columnist at a financial magazine published by the same company as her favorite fashion magazine, her fresh approach strikes a chord with readers and she quickly becomes the toast of the town. Meanwhile, her bank account is still bone dry, wreaking havoc on her love life and placing her career in jeopardy. As Rebecca teeters on the brink of bankruptcy, she gradually begins to reassess her priorities in life. Joan Cusack, John Goodman, Hugh Dancy, and Krysten Ritter co-star in the Touchstone Pictures production.

    Deceptively Deep

    I don't know how many of you are shoppers out there, but while I think this movie will appeal to a lot of viewers, it is especially enthralling to all of us "shopaholics".

    While I started watching the film merely expecting another random zany comedy, I was very suprised to find how much it actually affected me. I seriously felt a few moments of dread, of a sick feeling in my stomach, and of extreme empathy. Naturally, my boy friend was completely clueless as to why I was "overreacting" so severely, so I turned to him and said, "Sweetie, for me, this is like looking into a possible future, and being horrified by it."

    Several of my friends felt the same way. For any of us out there who happen to love shopping, this movie is both funny and horrifying at the same time. I think it gets across a strong message that an addiction to shopping is just like an addiction to anything else, drugs, alcohol, gambling, whatever.

    To cut to the chase,(with a pleasantly cushy veneer of slap-stick comedy) this movie details the life of a young woman as she struggles through an illness that, let's admit, we all sometimes write-off. The story progresses with a pleasing flow and dynamic and ends happily with a PG friendly conclusion of warm fuzzies and lessons for just about everyone.

    All in all, its a perfect movie for those days when you feel like having some random hilarity in your life, and doubles as a movie equally deserving of late-night and/or coffee shop discussions.

    Spend $, Spend $, Spend $!

    The movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic" is a story of how debt may eventually destroy your life and ruin your credit. The protagonist is so addicted to shopping it is taking over a large portion of her entire life. The storyline reveals how an addict will try to hide the addiction that is unraveling his/her finances and leads to an endless array of lies. It explains how addiction makes some people "crazy" in love with their object of affection. Digging a debt ditch is dangerous and could be a door to long-term financial damage. *The come-to-life mannequins were a riot. This is a good movie for females ages twelve and older.

    That rare breed: a CLEAN romantic comedy that is truly funny!

    Confessions of a Shopaholic is an extremely funny romantic comedy that will have you laughing from start to finish, and it's got one thing that is a real rarity these days: it is CLEAN. It doesn't have the usual raunchy dialogue or adult scenes that plague so many movies these days. Sure, it's got product placement, but the message in the end is a very positive one, the kind of thing you expect from a Disney movie. This is a redemption story and a romantic comedy in one, with a hilarious screwball performance by Isla Fischer. The age recommendation of 12+ found on this product's page by CommonSenseMedia is totally off: if you're okay with your 7-year old watching the Princess Diaries movies, then you'll have no problem with your 9 or 10 year old watching Shopaholic. (Just look at the low age recommendations of CSM for other, deeply offensive movies, and you'll see they're way off the mark.) If you want to laugh from start to finish and allow your kids to be around (except for 2 bad words, which give it a PG), this is the movie to get!
