Joanna B (kr) wrote: Escapism romcom (romantic comedy) Confessions of a Shopaholic is an excruciating hybrid rehash attempt at breezy slapstick. It is an ill-conceived and dreadfully executed mess of cinematic fluff. Completely devoid of chemistry and charisma and angled by producer Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI) to cash in on the second wave of the Sex And The City generationers; Shame shame Jerry.Transporting Sophie Kinsella's book of the same name across the Atlantic and attempting to tick each box on the trite clich romcom checklist, this movie manages to take the splendid institution of Hollywood airhead comedies carved by Monroe, Garland and Witherspoon and make it sanctimonious, predictable, stale and contrived. Materialist wannabe fashion Journalist Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher, Home and Away) is a compulsive shopper. Juggling 12 credit cards and $16k debt to keep her plentiful wardrobe in a manner to which accustomed she is helpless against beckoning mannequins in seductive designer-clad window displays. 'A man will never treat you as well as a store.' With the sudden collapse of her income source, Rebecca's unbridled and debilitating habit must come of a screeching halt. However, surprisingly enough, that very same week an interview request is made by fashion icon magazine Allete, the holy grail of a dream job.After being turned away even before the interview starts she cunningly finds out a job is available at Successful Savings, a finance magazine owned by the same company. Confident, even with her complete lack of fiscal knowledge, she takes the interview. Instantly realising that the interviewer is non-other than a man earlier that morning she fake sob-storied for $20 to buy a perfect green scarf, conceding she probably didn't get the job.In a drunken girly cheer up session, she decides to write a letter to the rejecting two editors. One sent to Allette highlighting what they had missed and one to Successful Savings Hugh Grant style British editor Luke (Hugh Dancy) returning the conned money. Needless to say the letters got mixed up and Rebecca unintentionally lands the job with Successful Saving. Using it as a stepping stone to Allette might just work. Taking on the role as the new IT girl for the world of finance Rebecca finds she has ironically been employed to write about the very consumer predicament of which she herself is drowning. Clutching a volume of Money for Dummies and her lolly-pink computer under one arm, Rebecca's insightfully innovative comparisons and unconventional metaphors for economics brings critical acclaim, public success and international accolades. Attempting to stay under Derek Smeath's (Robert Stanton) her stereo typically nerdy debt collector's radar, she writes under the pseudonym as "The girl with the green scarf." As a victim of her own overnight celebrity success, Rebecca is swiftly found. However, by using her vast abilities of lies and manipulation she easily convinces Luke that he is not a debt collector but a stalking ex boyfriend and she needs protection. Drawing closer to her ultimate goal writing for Alette, Rebecca finds love in Luke and begins to re-evaluate what is really important in life and questions her true ambition. Will confronting her "shopaholic" condition free her from her self-imposed life of lies and teach her the difference between cost and worth?The New York setting, designer name dropping and Carrie Bradshaw-esque narration screams copyright infringement. The intense lack of chemistry between the leads, poorly written characters with no grasp on reality and overblown performances leaves this film with few redeeming qualities. It is one of those films if its release was postponed or when straight to DVD, none would notice, or care (excluding my usual chick-flick partner). Even the A-list cast of regular supporting actors couldn't even manage to give it a lift.Fisher is capable of carrying her own film with her likable style and flair for slapstick but is in desperate need of better material. She shines as "that anyone can relate too" character. That person everyone knows as incredibly intelligent but sometime is literally thick as two short planks full of concrete. (In my family this is known as a Jackieism, affectionately coined by my father in reference to my mother; who I have to admit I was relating to Rebecca the entire film)The Verdict: As a shallow one-dimensional knock off version of its stand out predecessors, Confessions of a shopaholic lacks substance. I think Rebecca said it best herself "I'd rather be shopping".Published: The Queanbeyan AgeDate of Publication: 20/03/2009

Guillaume H (ca) wrote: classic 70's fare where every caracter makes the wrong decision and nobody ever notices exaclty whats wrong even if its spelled out in neon letter, its still highly enjoyable exacly for that. It is what it is, with no apologies, has atmosphere in droves and manages to mystify with elements already known by realising them exaclty as they should be.
