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. With Mother's Day approaching, Holly is hoping for a big weekend to save the day, but she has other problems to contend with as she has to patch up a misunderstanding with her mother (Lee Grant), who offers to refer her to a loan shark, and her daughter (Mae Whitman). Meanwhile, with Adam out of the picture, Holly finds herself flirting with Miles (Rob Morrow), the long-suffering boyfriend of one of her customers. And in the midst of the buying frenzy, many of Holly's customers share their feelings about shopping and the role it plays in their lives.

Critic Reviews for Going Shopping
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.
Alleges support of women, yet fetishizes their objects instead of their relationships.
[Henry] Jaglom's Going Shopping is a nifty little oddity, another of his unlikely, entertaining movie hybrids.
It's the last and least successful of indie director Henry Jaglom's trilogy looking at female issues.
The trouble with Going Shopping is that it's clogged with personalities and styles that don't congeal.
Audience Reviews for Going Shopping
Very cool flick.. The ensemble cast are led by Victoria Foyt, Rob Morrow, Lee Grant and Bruce Davison. Foyt is magnificent as store owner Holly Gilmore who?s trying to save her store. Holly goes through some gyrations as a shop owner, mother, friend, girlfriend, etc. Foyt flexes her acting muscles in one scene in particular. Funny stuff. I saw this film with my boyfriend and he said he really learned some things about women and shopping as a result of the interviews which Jaglom interspersed throughout the film. Jaglom?s improvisational directing style really works here giving the actors own words and experiences real authenticity. A fun film to watch.
