A new fashionable and romantic comedy movie Confessions of a Shopaholic, directed by P. J. Hogan, is one of the stylish and trendy movie anyone has lately seen in this month.
Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) is a fashion freak, infact she is so addicted to shopping that she spends her last penny on shopping without thinking twice. She has very differnt relationship with her credit cards which always tells her- “spend me… spend me…”. She is smart, cute, sexy and very talented girl. Her only dream is to get a job in the world’s top most fashion magazine called Allette. Her whole world is sweet, bright and colourful like a sugar coated mulit-coloured candy. That was until she unfortunately or accidentally gets a job in the monotonous world of money saving, that aims to help people to save there money. That is where she meets Luke Brandon (Hugh Dancy). Will her dream of getting in fashion magazine Allette will be possible? Will her boss Luke will ever find out her shopaholic secret and still stand by her? Will there be any other relationship between them except boss- employee?
This film will make you laugh and will remind you some of your shopping experiences, where you end up buying something you don’t even need, but yet you feel happy about it. But, yet there are few parts in the movie which are quite predictable, for example- the night when her interview with Luke went wrong and she gets drunk and writes a rude letter to Luke and a nice letter to the boss of Allette and accidentally mails them the wrong way. Hmm… seen it before.
Infact, I recommend Confessins of a Shopaholic, to all the girls who loves to shop and fancy of a perfect romance (like the one in romantic novels or movies). Unfortunately. it’s lacking in character development and plot-line, which makes it slight weak and quite predictable.
Overall, this movie did not disappoint me nor did it suprised me. It was just the way I thought it would be. If you want to just chill out without stressing yourself and want a light-herated movie then this one is for you. It’s enjoyable but viewers will feel like we have seen it before.
