Confessions of a Shopaholic hit theaters last month and I decided to go see it after opening day. Shopaholic is based on the novel by Sophie Kinsella.
The movie starts off with Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fischer), as a young girl; the story gradually continues picking up on details of her family, and why she is a so-called "shopaholic". Living in New York City, Rebecca is a college graduate working as a journalist. She tries to build her way up to get into the top fashion magazine, and goes through the whole ordeal most chick flicks have.
Some A-list celebrities play in the movie as well. Joan Cusack plays Rebecca's mother, and John Goodman plays her father. Hugh Dancy plays Rebecca's love interest and boss.
There is, of course, love, drama, girlfriends, catfights, and of course, shopping. Overall the movie wasn't so bad. It did not have me running out of the theaters screaming, but I was quite pleased with it. The soundtrack is full of upbeat club music which plays into the movie well.
As an overall I give this movie a B+.
