Cinematic impulse buy that sparkles through its 100 minutes.

an exceedingly safe movie, which can serve as entertainment for the first date crowd or the couple who has been happily married for years

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.

Not only a comical view of a shopaholic, but an educational one too.

This sweet and endearing fashionista fairy tale is just what the doctor ordered to take our minds off the current economic crisis.

...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.

A mediocre result for a title with as much promise as a designer boutique crammed with items to die for, this girls-only adaptation of Sophie Kinsella's book has charm, but never lives up to expectations

I must sheepishly admit that I enjoyed the frothy fun of "Confessions of a Shopaholic," and I can only imagine that women will like it even more than this cranky male film critic.

Fisher is a likeable star with a knack for slapstick.

It's hardly suspenseful stuff, but the sassy New-York-shopper angle should keep Sex And The City fans happy without patronising them quite so cynically.

Isla is like an adorable puppy you can't fail to be charmed by. If there's a debt to be paid, the movie owes her big time.

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.

Shopaholic is a pleasingly addictive treat. Happily, it's one that won't max out your credit card.

More Topshop than Top Gun, this Bruckheimer effort sees Fisher finally make good on her Wedding Crashers promise in a film that manages to be both a frothy romcom and a cautionary tale on the perils of plastic splurgery.

This rival to the other chick flick of the moment, He's Just Not That Into You, is a fabulously frothy and fun fashion film.

With streets flanked by monster fashion ads, and all the girls looking sublime, Shopaholic is a glam promo for big spenders. Which is a bit ironic.

A triumph of style over lack of substance -- one made human by Isla Fisher and made romantic by the pairing of Fisher and Hugh Dancy.

Yes, it's a movie about conspicuous consumption ---- that's what shopping your brains out means!
