Stories about women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Confessions of a Shopaholic
A new job? Hopefully. A new man? Possibly. A new handbag? Absolutely!
In the glamorous world of New York City, Rebecca Bloomwood is a fun-loving girl who is really good at shopping-a little too good, perhaps. She dreams of working for her favorite fashion magazine, but can't quite get her foot in the door-until ironically, she snags a job as an advice columnist for a financial magazine published by the same company.
I recently cancelled a $200 preorder for Arkham Knight with a fantastic Batmobile figure. I'm using the money to travel instead. But I'll always be the guy who thought "shit, only $200 for a video game with a really shiny toy?!".
This is sappy and shallow and predictable as hell. Our character is little miss America and America will survive her financial crisis. Buy movie tickets and $10 popcorn!
Lady Gaga is on the soundtrack. That's why I even bothered. She has two songs called Fashion, and this was the first. I'm done. Good night.
Although I love Isla Fisher, I really wish she hadn't associated herself with this.
As a stupid, dumb chick-flick, Confessions of a Shopaholic certainly delivers. That really is all this is though.
Mundane, mind-numbing, but still strangely watchable. Maybe it's because I went in prepared.
It has made me want to go shopping though.
Confessions of a Shopaholic is a film I should dislike but I find it strangely charming. I mean it's deeply flawed and has some questionable acting but it's a fun film to watch when you're not in mood for something deep.
Pretty impressive cast for such a blandly irritating piece of crap.
I have to shamelessly admit that I enjoyed this movie. I think Isla Fisher is a great actress and I love her comedic side and she was very funny in this movie. Her chemistry with Hugh Dancy was ok, although nothing out of this world. I did enjoy John Goodman playing her father, he was very funny and the role fitted him nicely. One cannot help but compare this movie to The Devil Wears Prada, there are several similarities but of course there is no Merryl Streep in this one so it falls short. The message is a good one as it shows the dangers of consumerism and falling into debt, but at the same time I felt that the film was being very hypocritical with so many advertisements and product placements. But overall I have to admit I enjoyed the film, I found it entertaining and funny and enjoyed every second Isla Fisher was on film.
that green scarf wasnt even pretty
Fisher is likable but overall the movie doesn't quite come together.
OSM MOVIE!!!BEAUTIFUL STORY LINE..AND HER ACTING WAAH!! BRAVO..CUTE MOVIE
It's nice and funny!
I like this movie and introduced it to my wife. If anyone actually knows me they will probably be surprised to find I'm a reformed shopaholic, although not as bad as the main movie character. It's fun and doesn't take itself seriously.
With a few exceptions (You've Got Mail, Il Postino, Strictly Ballroom) I'm generally not a fan of romantic comedies. I find the majority boring and predictable. So I didn't have high hopes for Confessions Of A Shopaholic but I must admit that this may go down as something of a guilty pleasure. Isla Fisher is lovely as the self-confessed shopaholic and she plays the role with a freshness that keeps the character both likeable and sympathetic. The supporting cast boast impressive CV's; Joan Cusack, John Goodman, John Lithgow, and the charming Hugh Dancy as the love interest. The script is above average for your romantic comedy, with a few nice insights into fashion and consumerism, and the film is well…
Had fun, but it was slightly too long.

Decent chick flick. Although it is a lot less of a cheesy romantic comedy. Which is good.
All movies available on Netflix Germany. Documentaries and movies for children are included. May be incomplete.
this is the ultimate romantic comedy list . . . for better or for worse. i got the list from…
