Struggling with her debilitating obsession with shopping and the sudden collapse of her income source, Rebecca Bloomwood unintentionally lands a job writing for a financial magazine after a drunken letter-mailing mix-up. Ironically writing about the very consumer caution of which she herself has not abided, Rebecca's innovative comparisons and unconventional metaphors for economics grants her critical acclaim, public success, and the admiration of her supportive boss Luke. But as she draws closer to her ultimate goal of writing for renowned fashion magazine Alette, she questions her true ambitions and must determine if overcoming her "shopaholic" condition will bring her real happiness.Written by

When Rebecca takes the green scarf to the counter, the cashier says "That's $120." Rebecca gives her $50 cash, charges $30 on one card, $10 on another card, and tries to put $20 on a different card which is declined. She got the $20 in cash, but the grand total is $110. She tried 2 more blue cards before the golden card was declined. It's very likely at least one of them was charged the missing $10. See more »
[Rebecca pushes away bills]
I'll do this. It can't be that bad. It's just like a band-aid. It's gonna be fine.

Bex! Two hundred dollars on Marc Jacobs underwear?
[pours the tequila]
Oh, underwear is a basic, human, right.
Seventy eight dollars on lavender honey?
I felt sorry for the shop assistant. She had a lazy eye. I didn't know which way she was looking! I didn't know if she was looking at me, it was so sad.
I can't even talk about this one.

I confess. I fell for the Shopaholic. Isla Fisher is charming, funny, adorably goofy yet undeniably attractive. You can't help but notice her uncanny resemblance to Enchanted's Amy Adams, which is not a bad thing at all, yet she still maintains the same unique kookiness we all enjoyed in her role as Vince Vaughn's equal in The Wedding Crashers. The incredible job on the CGI'd mannequins, done by Lucasfilms' Industrial Light & Magic, is also worth mentioning.
You're not supposed to go into the movie expecting it to be the next epic Titanic love story. You're expecting it to be goofy and sentimental yet genuine and entertaining, and it was all those things.
Confessions of a Shopaholic is a rare gem that's worth the guilty swipe of a maximized credit card.
