“Confessions of a Shopaholic,” a romantic ­comedy based on the novel by Sophie Kinsella, will touch your heart and tickle your ­funny bone. Don’t let the title fool you – this is more than your average chick flick. The unique characters and witty ­dialogue make it entertaining for both genders.

“Shopaholic” follows the story of Rebecca (Isla Fisher), a shopaholic who lives for Gucci, Prada, and Chanel. Life is good until Rebecca finds herself under a mountain of debt without a job. Believing she is applying for her dream job at a fashion magazine, Rebecca somehow lands a gig at a finance publication instead. Nevertheless, her column is instantly popular, catapulting her to fame and gaining the attention of her boss, Luke (Hugh ­Dancy). Luke and Rebecca share a quirky and charming chemistry, adding to the film’s humor. The actors play off one each other’s personalities, ­creating an adorable romance that audiences will invest in and root for as it grows throughout the film.

Although the movie has over-the-top fashion, it isn’t overdone or too far-fetched. Audiences can relate to Re­becca’s vivacious and energetic personality, which Fisher ­portrays with charisma, but they can also understand her struggle to turn her life around.

The movie’s balance of humor and heartwarming moments will leave viewers with a message about friendship, family, and living life to the fullest. With well-chosen music, fantastic fashion, and hysterical moments, this movie will entertain and leave you ready to shop!

Honestly, your review is good. But...I actually thought the movie was a total waste of time and the letter grade it deserves is a D. It was obnoxious and I know this is a common word but totally boring. Then again, it's my opinion.

Well.. I will admit that I didn't like the movie. The main character annoyed me alot and seemed exagerated. The story also, was often quite hard to believe. Your article was well written, though but if I hadn't seen the movie I would have liked you to give some examples of situations that happen in the movie.
