Confessions Of A Shopaholic is a P.J. Hogan directed comedy / romance about Rebecca (Isla Fisher), a college graduate who lands a job as a financial journalist. Rebecca’s job requires that she advises others about money; the only thing is, she doesn’t quite have her own finances together.

Being in the mood for an ‘easy viewing’ movie experience, film that didn’t ask too much of me is a key reason I watched Confessions Of A Shopaholic. It’s certainly not the best romantic comedy out there. Yet it has some charm. My favourite moment features John Goodman. Particularly when his character is seen dancing and it’s the punch line for one of the jokes in the movie. I also quite enjoyed Kristen Scott Thomas’s character as the Editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine. 

As for the fashion, there is a certain purple frilly top / dress seen towards the end of the movie that I liked. However something tells me that had I also fallen in love with more of the clothes featured, perhaps the whole film experience would be that little bit more memorable. Rather than mainly feeling like a mixture of scenarios that brought to mind similar situations that I’d already enjoyed watching in other movies. 

Whether you’re a shopaholic or not, there’s probably a little something to appreciate in Hogan’s film. Even if that thing is the general existence of movies that don’t ask too much of you.

Watch it if you’re curious.

Happy Film Loving
