Movie Review : Confessions Of A Shopaholic (2009)
“Life would be a lot easier if conversations were rewindable and erasable, like videos."
An American comedy film based on a series of novels by the author Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a shopaholic is kind of an autobiography of a hopeless shopaholic Rebecca Bloomwood.
She is crazy about clothes and stuff and crosses every limit to and spends every penny to rob the shops off their collection.
The movie is a series of events which come into her life making her a writer for the magazine ‘Successful Savings’ following an auction of her clothes to pay debt and finally meeting the love of life. But the thing is, its not all that straight as it sounds. After all its Sophie Kinsella meets Isla Fisher movie!
Its a must must watch for comedy lovers. Who wouldn’t like an hour of uninterrupted ShopaholicNess and not so fluent Finnish!
“Shopping is actually very similar to farming a field. You can't keep buying the same thing, you have to have a bit of variety. Otherwise you get bored and stop enjoying yourself.”
“I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.”
This movie is for those who are into fun without wearing the heavy critical eyes of a very professional cinematographic owl!
I mean, for once let us all laugh at what Isla Fisher has done to the previously awesome novel. What has she done? Pure Justice. She was in her element and did every scene effortlessly. She can bring the laugh out of even the grumpy one.
The movie really is a secret garden for shopaholics as to feast the eyes with fancy items and is much more entertaining than the poster suggest.
This movie to me is like a many times watch. The idea of ‘The Girl in the Green Scarf’ is very interesting as well as fresh.
Not only a comical view of a shopaholic, but an educational one too.
This movie is just perfect to release the steam of a busy stressful week and give yourself some nice laugh therapy.
“I mean, when I think about it, what's more important? Clothes - or the miracle of new life?”
I will rate this branded comedy with
