Rebecca Bloomwood is a young woman struggling with her debilitating obsession with shopping and the sudden collapse of her income source. She unintentionally lands a job writing for a Manhattan financial magazine after a drunken letter-mailing mix-up. Ironically, now Rebecca is 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.

Fun, lighthearted romantic comedy. Isla Fisher is a delight.

As someone who recently read the book and now considers "Shopaholic" Becky Bloomwood my new best friend, I found the film version HORRIBLE! The movie skips around BIG TIME and Becky has been reduced to a complete moron. The pace of the film went way too fast for me, and it would have been really hard to understand what was going on, had I not read the book. Alicia Silverstone's Claire (from "Clueless") had more sense than the film version of Becky. I watched about twenty minutes and after seeing how horribly the book was trashed here, I turned it off. PLEASE... if you have any interest in this story whatsoever, PLEASE read the book. It's much more entertaining.

I will just do it and call this a Chic Flick. I am not one to throw around this term as my husband typically can enjoy most films characterized as such, but not this one! It was sweet, cute pretty and a typical light romance movie. I liked it, he did not.

It is good that I did not read the book this film was adapted from because I'm certain that I would not have enjoyed it as well as I did. It was entertaining enough and well acted by the female lead. Also, I will never tire of looking at Hugh Dancy.

Silly and improbable but an easy watch.

A truly riveting story of a girl trying to avoid her problem until she realizes that doing this won't get her anywhere. This book draws you in and holds you there.
