RT on DVD: Waltz with a Shopaholic Pink Panther in Wonderland
Get Bruckheimer's chick flick, Steve Martin's slapstick sequel, an animated Oscar nominee and more!
Under the guidance of producer Jerry Bruckheimer -- maestro of the blockbuster -- Disney churned out this appropriately glitzy, yet mildly inappropriate, ode to shopping and female consumption adapted from Sophie Kinsella's bestselling Shopaholic series. And who knows? Maybe in more buoyant economic times audiences could have latched on better to its designer clothes-fetishizing, credit card-maxing heroine, Rebecca Bloomwood (the charismatic and talented Isla Fisher), an aspiring fashion writer who lands a job writing about fiscal responsibility while hiding her own huge personal debts. Critics, however, spared no expense in dressing down this overly glossy, stereotype-enforcing chick flick (though it does make use of some fabulous costuming by Patricia Field). Deleted scenes and a blooper reel (entertaining itself, thanks to Fisher's comic sensibility) are included on DVD. (Read Jerry Bruckheimer's Five Favorite Films here!)
