We saw Confessions of a Shopaholic and were surprised that is was actually pretty sad. (Of course everyone loved Sex and the City and it was a major tear jerker.) Maybe if the movie was released last summer before all the depressing economic conditions, we’d be able to make light of Rebecca’s compulsive shopping habits; but instead the movie hit too close to home. We covet designer handbags and great shoes and struggle to keep our purchases in line with our budgets. Confessions is less of an escape and more of a timely commentary.
Things we did like: Rebecca’s wild outfits, her trips to Bendel’s and Barney’s, Rebecca’s getaway to the Hotel Victor in Miami and the lesson of financial responsibility. Isla Fisher has an amazing energy and was great in Wedding Crashers; so we look forward to seeing her in future starring roles.
