Confessions of a Shopaholic

confessionsofashopaholicBy Lucía Santiago Dantés

Confessions of a Shopaholic is and always will be a chick flick! but not because of that, is not worth watching it. The flick is simply hilarious! this is the first time I see boys laughing and actually having a good time at a chick flick movie!

Rebecca (Isla Fisher) put herself into a lot of troubles after her appetite for designer’s clothes overloads all her credit cards without having the right job to pay her bills. Things get a little too complicated when she loses her job and  debt collectors are literally knocking on her door. By accident, Rebecca ends up on a financial magazine giving economical advice to the readers under a pseudonym  called “The Girl in the Green Scarf”.

The movie explores the dangerous addiction that is shopping using only credit cards, but it can be related to any kind of addiction, because even though you may think this is a “harmless addiction” it isn’t! all addictions are dangerous if you get it to the extreme, it can ruin your life before you even notice. On the bright sight, “Confessions…” give us a lesson without making us feel bad, it is very cathartic, and give us a good feeling when we see Rebecca’s parents and friends try to help her with her addiction. By the way, her parents are played by John Goodman and Joan Cusack, while her best friend and roommate Suze is played by Krysten Ritter.

The film was directed by P.J. Hogan. Based on the book written by Sophie Kinsella.
