Confessions of a Shopaholic
In the glamorous world of New York City, Rebecca Bloomwood is a fun-loving girl who is really good at shopping--a little too good, perhaps. She dreams of working for her favorite fashion magazine, but can't quite get her foot in the door--until ironically, she snags a job as an advice columnist for a financial magazine published by the same company. As her dreams are finally coming true, she goes to ever more hilarious and extreme efforts to keep her past from ruining her future.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you want gritty realism, see an arthouse movie. Or shop in a pound store. As journalist Rebecca, Isla Fisher is silly and adorable - just like this adaptation of Sophie Kinsella's novel."
‑ Nina Caplan, Time Out
"Isla Fisher is such a bundle of comic energy that watching her spin her wheels in the aggressively unfunny Confessions of a Shopaholic counts as cruel and unusual punishment -- for her as well as for us."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Confession #1: Despite all reasonable logic and preconceived expectations, I enjoyed Confessions of a Shopaholic."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"an exceedingly safe movie, which can serve as entertainment for the first date crowd or the couple who has been happily married for years"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Charm can go a long way in making a film. Or, in the case of Confessions of a Shopaholic, the charm of Isla Fisher makes the film bearable."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Here [Fisher] is giving it everything she's got and it's just not enough."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"[T]his adaptation is really just about buying the 'brand,' and--like the retailers in the film--selling America something it already had."
‑ Christopher Orr, The New Republic
"Cinematic impulse buy that sparkles through its 100 minutes."
‑ Sarah Sluis, Film Journal International
"If you are willing to turn your brain off, Fisher makes the film very watchable, but it's core message over materialism and financial stupidity are confused and the film lacks just that few more laughs to tip it above mediocrity."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"Even without the bad timing %u2013 a paean to debt and excess released a few months after the world's biggest financial meltdown since the 1920s %u2013 it still would not have worked."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"This is a movie that is warning us against the dangers of being slaves to labels while at the same time celebrating those same designer brands."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"The production renders totally irrelevant all hopes for a well-made movie. It's one of those ragged, pandemonious studio comedies that hammers at plot points in every contrived scene."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"A disappointing comedy, out of synch with the zeitgeist"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"This is a film that couldn't buy a positive female character if there was a barrel full on clearance at Bloomies."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"Hollywood likes nothing more than having its cake and eating it too, which explains the confusions of P.J. Hogan's Confessions of a Shopaholic. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
