Confessions of a Shopaholic
I was excited to see this movie, based on the fact that I read and loved the book many years ago. Which, by the way, is the best way to enjoy a movie based on a book. Don't read the book too close to seeing the movie or all you'll notice is what was left out or changed. (ahem, Harry P.)
I'm pleased to admit I saw this with mom, dad, and sisters and everyone loved it. It was hilarious, heartwarming, colorful and fun. Isla Fisher did a wonderful job playing Becky Bloomwood, a ridiculous shopaholic who manages to be endearing and sympathetic while drowning in debt.
Hugh Dancy was charming as usual, but a tad on the boring side.
I loved Krysten Ritter as the best friend and of course, the always stellar Joan Cusack as Becky's mom (blowing my mind a little that she is now playing the mom of 20-somethings).
See the movie, although you'll probably have to wait for the DVD, and read the books, they're hilarious!
