Critic Reviews for Confessions of a Shopaholic
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.
Here [Fisher] is giving it everything she's got and it's just not enough.
This is a movie that is warning us against the dangers of being slaves to labels while at the same time celebrating those same designer brands.
Isla Fisher is such a bundle of comic energy that watching her spin her wheels in the aggressively unfunny Confessions of a Shopaholic counts as cruel and unusual punishment -- for her as well as for us.
[T]his adaptation is really just about buying the 'brand,' and--like the retailers in the film--selling America something it already had.
Audience Reviews for Confessions of a Shopaholic
Funny rom com about a hopeless shopaholic who has to get a job at a savings magazine to pay for her shopping sprees. She is being chased by a debt collector and her bestfriend makes her go to therapy. She should have everything but loses it all as she is outted as a fraud on national TV. When she is really low - no job, no money, no bestfriend, no love, she finds out what is most important. It all turns out in the end. I love the way the mannequins talk to her. Every shopaholic can relate to her situation. Good cast.
Nothing of great merit but still an enjoyable feel good comedy that comes at being a shopaholic from a different angle. Entertaining, predictable and attempts to be heartfelt, this film follows the same scripture as almost every other young romantic comedy. Peppered with some big names with acting above the usual standards of the genre, I must say this is definitely not the worst of its type I have seen but still would have to go just a little bit further to be considered anything better than good. Some AMAZING shoes in it though!
Really bad. Was expecting much better than this. It has it's moments but other than that, not really that good and the main actor isn't all that attractive and his acting is terrible.
