Director Henry Jaglom once again casts his quirky gaze on a common female obsession in this comedy drama. Holly (Victoria Foyt) owns a small and upscale boutique in Santa Monica, and has just learned that her accountant and significant other, Adam (Bruce Davison), has betrayed her -- even worse than cheating on her, he's run off with three month's worth of rent, and she has only a few days to raise the money or lose her space.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Jaglom's concentrated approach serves up some insight to be sure, but the movie states its case in the first 10 minutes and then proceeds to run out of things to say, almost as quickly as the women in this movie think they've run out of things to wear."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"It's the last and least successful of indie director Henry Jaglom's trilogy looking at female issues."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"The film is less than two hours long but feels considerably longer, thanks to a few drawn-out scenes and some clunky character drama."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"[An] incredibly tedious and gruesome affair."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"If this sounds like your type of thing, you'll probably get your money's worth."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
"Alleges support of women, yet fetishizes their objects instead of their relationships."
‑ Michael Booth, Denver Post
"The trouble with Going Shopping is that it's clogged with personalities and styles that don't congeal."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"As breezy as window-shopping and reminds us that, in both shopping and love, everyone has buyer's remorse and few items fit right."
‑ Matt Pais, Metromix.com
"[A] witty follow-up to director Henry Jaglom's Eating and Baby Fever."
‑ M. K. Terrell, Christian Science Monitor
"There's one thing to be said for Jaglom: He continues to make movies in the face of critical brickbats and audience indifference, and he's lost none of his power to insult."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"[Henry] Jaglom's Going Shopping is a nifty little oddity, another of his unlikely, entertaining movie hybrids."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Going Shopping can make a wonderful outing for girlfriends. It's fun."
‑ Marta Barber, Miami Herald
"Like the funky little shop at its heart, Going Shopping may not look like much from its exterior, but a little browsing turns up unexpected treasures."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"This boutique of a movie won't bring in the madding crowds of a Macy's sale."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
