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.

This is a film that couldn't buy a positive female character if there was a barrel full on clearance at Bloomies.

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.

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.

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]

Doesn't operate on a level of logic, being the fantasy that it is, but the enthusiasm of its star and the color dynamics of its lush parade of fashion makes it a solid must see for the teenage girl crowd.

...a much better film than might be expected, even if it turns out to be as superficial as this season's scarf or handbag.

The film serves as a defense of beauty in the face of moralism, a theme that can never go stale.

Fisher is a good physical comedian, but gee, could anyone be this dumb?

Even if you enjoy rom-coms, you'll be struggling to find more than two mild chuckles in this waste of time and celluloid.

Fisher is wonderful for much of this movie, despite some of the irksome material shoved her way.
