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.

Going Shopping can make a wonderful outing for girlfriends. It's fun.

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.

Inadvertently reduces women to a variety of cliches, probably reinforcing many men's worst fears.

Not only is indulgence a frequent subject for Jaglom, it also sums up what his movies do -- and what they demand from their audience, sometimes to tedious degrees.

None of these is a character you want to spend much time with, and even with the diverting guest appearances, this is still strictly discount merchandise.

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

Zeroes in on retail mania with a flimsy wire hanger of a premise.

Going Shopping...has enough smart, knowing touches and enough easy spontaneity among its well-chosen actors to make you wish it added up to more than what it turns out to be: a flighty, motor-mouthed cinematic divertissement.

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

Henry Jaglom's latest study of contemporary female obsessions among a noxious clan of West L.A. bourgeoisie is of more pathological than cinematic interest.
