Has anyone seen posters for the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic? It comes out Feb. 13, which Hubby says is cruel timing because a lot of girls will ask their beaus to take them to see it as a Valentine’s Day Gift. And he hasn’t even seen the trailer!
Luckily, I have. Shopaholic is about a red head named Becky Bloomwood (Isla Fisher, Wedding Crashers) who shops until she is in so much debt she has to freeze her credit cards in blocks of ice. There are a lot of shots of her prancing around in cute outfits and slapping men to get out of sticky situations. You said you spoke Finnish?
It is unclear from the trailer whether she learns to pay down her debt and shop responsibly, or whether she falls in love with a rich man who wipes her troublesome bills away. I’ve lived in LA long enough to put my money on the latter. Ahhhhh, Hollywood.
As someone who does not shop a lot, even though I spend a lot of time *thinking* about spending, I’m worried that watching this movie will make me want to buy a ton of clothes. If I see it, maybe I should leave my credit cards at home. What do you think?
Watch the 2:35 minute trailer below.
