I went to see "Confessions of a Shopaholic" yesterday. Stars Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy and Krysten Ritter. I have read several of the Shopohalic Series books by Sophie Kinsella. They are hilarious and sweet. I read the first book while on vacation in Cabo and could hardly put it down to drink a margarita. The book centers around Rebecca Bloomwood who is the most creative liar I have ever heard of. She can justify all of the shoes, bath salts, purses (you name it), so anyone would be convinced.
But the movie missed much of the book. The book takes place in England, so the movie misses the whole charm of the english countryside where her parents live. She also writes these hilarious letters to the credit card companies as to why she can't pay her bill and the letters back to her cracked me up.
Cute, and I enjoyed myself, but I wouldn't take a guy to this. They would not get it at all. Not as good as the Devil Wears Prada, but still cute.
Probably 3 out of 5 stars
