[Henry] Jaglom's Going Shopping is a nifty little oddity, another of his unlikely, entertaining movie hybrids.

As breezy as window-shopping and reminds us that, in both shopping and love, everyone has buyer's remorse and few items fit right.

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.

Going Shopping is sharp and funny about all the things that shopping can mean to the women who live to do it, and even to those who don't.

At times movies seem rife with misogyny, yet Jaglom consistently expresses a love for women in his films.

Comes as close as any film to explaining what the deal is with women and shopping.

Henry Jaglom completes his informal trilogy on estrogen-laced obsessions with this seriocomic exploration of women and clothes.

Typical Jaglom yakker, made fresh by winning performances from Lee Grant, Rob Morrow and Bruce Davison.

The film is less than two hours long but feels considerably longer, thanks to a few drawn-out scenes and some clunky character drama.

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.

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.

This boutique of a movie won't bring in the madding crowds of a Macy's sale.
