Confessions of a Shopoholic

Yes, I confess I wanted to see this movie. It's a romantic comedy after all, and it was written by Sophie Kinsella. Now, what author in their right mind wouldn't turn green with envy ! To have your bestselling book become a movie right before your eyes! I have to say I loved it! I smiled during the entire 103 minutes of this movie.

Isla Fisher, the freshly talented actress from the Wedding Crashers was perfect in the role of Rebecca Bloomwood. This poor girl has a shopping problem and what's worse, she isn't even aware of it... buying clothes, handbags, jewelry, designer no less, simply makes her happy. Who can't relate to that? Her credit cards are maxed out and she actually has to find a REAL job.

Even if I didn't care for the premise, I'd love just watching what crazy designer outfits she comes up with. It's Gucci this and Dolce and Gabbana that. But as silly as the story was, it was entertaining. I even dragged my hubby to the show, and guess what? He liked it! We both walked out of the movie theater in a good mood and let's face it, in today's world, what's wrong with a little escapism if it makes you smile?
