Storyline

Struggling with her debilitating obsession with shopping and the sudden collapse of her income source, Rebecca Bloomwood unintentionally lands a job writing for a financial magazine after a drunken letter-mailing mix-up. Ironically writing about the very consumer caution of which she herself has not abided, Rebecca's innovative comparisons and unconventional metaphors for economics grants her critical acclaim, public success, and the admiration of her supportive boss Luke. But as she draws closer to her ultimate goal of writing for renowned fashion magazine Alette, she questions her true ambitions and must determine if overcoming her "shopaholic" condition will bring her real happiness. Written by The Massie Twins

Good Chick Flick! Enjoyable for all
13 June 2009 | by godofalloddsSee all my reviews

Confessions Of A Shopaholic is a chick flick NO DOUBT! but it has been quite some time since we had a decent chick flick on d big screen..

The movie has a good narration and corny dialogues and a exponential growth in the characterization of the Protagonist. The movie's antagoinist are all the shops...

The plot is well developed and portrayed really well, and the movie is steers in the right direction with an awesome soundtrack. The Movie is enjoyable for all ages and gender and if u want a chiller.. this is juz ur movie...

MY VERDICT: WORTH A WATCH!
