To all you super-savers: go see Confessions Of A Shopaholic! To all you not-so-frugal shoppers: go see Confessions Of A Shopaholic! No matter if you’re a true “shopaholic” or not, this film will conjure up as many emotions as Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) has clothes—and that’s a lot.
Rebecca, a journalist with an expensive passion for shopping, is challenged to find her true calling in her field. She’s aspired to work for Alette (the trendiest and most prestigious fashion magazine) ever since she was a young girl.
However, her dream takes a detour at a financial magazine, which is circulated by the same publisher. There, she writes an honest column the city goes nuts for, juggles her debt and the debt collector pestering her, falls in love, realizes shopping is truly an addiction…. (dun, dun, dun) lives “happily ever after.”
Now don’t be fooled! This movie is no ordinary happy ending movie. It is the journey there that fans really enjoyed:
“I cried, I laughed, I laughed so hard I cried!” Alana Macaluay, 23.
“Such a feel-good movie!” Shayonie Kundu, 16.
Fans agree that Isla Fisher gives an engaging performance as the girl you love to love and the girl you wish you were (minus the debt issues). Confessions of a Shopaholic, as a novel and as a movie, is an inspiration to all women to put down the credit card, because the things that are truly important don’t come in Tiffany-blue bags—they’re the people that you treasure the most. And they never go out of style.
