Confessions of a Shopaholic

I watched Confessions of a Shopaholic yesterday. I had taped it when it was on Starz. It based on a book series by Sophie Kinsella (I haven’t read the books, but I do plan on reading the last three books of the book series). The movie has Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy, Krysten Ritter, Joan Cusack, John Goodman, John Lithgow, Robert Stanton, Leslie Bibb, and Kristin Scott Thomas in it.

In this movie, a woman named Rebecca Bloomwood is a shopaholic. (I think everyone is one. I am, but I’m not as bad as her. And I’m not so upscale as her either.) (Also I think it stems from from her parents being thrifty,) She wants to go to interview at a fashion magazine, but on the way she sees a green scarf which she says she has to have for the interview. But her credit card is maxed out. A man offers her some money to get the scarf so she gets the scarf. But she is late for the interview. Someone else gets the job. A desk clerk tells her that she could get a job at a financial magazine in order to work her way to the fashion magazine. So she goes to that magazine for an interview and the same man who gave her the man is the editor of the financial magazine. She gest the job, but she doesn’t really get it. But she cleverly writes an article which is huge success. She ends up falling for the editor and she turns down the fashion writer job. The editor quits and has his own magazine.

I loved this movie. It was really cute. Next week I’m watching Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.
