REVIEW

With a failing economy what better way to address it then through a romantic comedy. “Confessions of a Shopaholic” is based on the novel by Sophie Kinsella and stars the adorable Isla Fisher as Rebecca Bloomwood, an aspiring journalist working her way up to her goal of writing for a fashion magazine. When she is terminated from her current job and realizes she has over $16K in debt her desperation for employment is kicked into high gear. She applies for a job with a New York City financial magazine, something she obviously knows nothing about. The interview of course is a difficult task, one that becomes even stickier when she actually gets the job.

When she receives her first assignment of writing an article about store APR’s she is stumped. Reading dummy books and goggling will not save her. Eventually she uses her shopping skills and disappointment in product to write an amazing article. With an overwhelming response to her words she creates quite a fan base and becomes known as the Girl in the Green Scarf. Rebecca becomes intrigued by her boss Luke (Hugh Dancy), who turns out to be a wealthy entrepreneur. The two immediately have sparks and although it takes sometime to develop, when it does the chemistry is undeniable. What happens to that connection when Luke learns that Rebecca not only knows nothing about finances, but that she is in debt and a shopaholic?

“Confessions of a Shopaholic” is a romantic comedy with a twist. We all have had or have credit debt and some of us hide it and are in complete denial. This is Rebecca Bloomwood’s life. Constantly avoiding the unknown number and ignoring the bills as they come in. Learning to say no I don’t really need those shoes now becomes her biggest task. Upon accepting the fact she has a problem she is able to pick up the pieces of her life and move on. Rebecca’s greatest revenge comes from getting back at her debt collector by paying off $9,000 in hand-delivered pennies. What a great idea! The love story did play backburner to the shopping, but when on screen with each other the duo ignited. Isla Fisher offered a pleasant lead performance. This is no Carrie Bradshaw for you, but comes pretty darn close. Get your best shoes on and enjoy a shopping spree that won’t hit your pocket book to hard.
