Movies about/starring 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.
On the Wikipedia article for Confessions of a Shopaholic, there is a hilarious addendum concerning production which states how the ending of Sophie Kinsella's novel, the first in the Shopaholic series, was re-shot to be mindful of 'these times of recession'. That is a funnier quote than any line from a movie that gives vapid a whole new definition. Much like Sex and the City totally defines its women by how much money and high class sex they're having, PJ Hogan's film defines Isla Fisher's journalist Rebecca Bloomwood by the amount of shoes she likes to buy and the amount of credit cards she has - until the end of course, where she's learned to grow as a person (say…
Pretty impressive cast for such a blandly irritating piece of crap.

Confessions of an annoyaholic......
Pretty funny. A little cheesy, but.
It's always a sad day when a movie adaptation of a book fails this miserably.
ayyyyyy u fancy hugh dancy

Sueña con ser The Devil Wears Prada pero se queda corta, cortísima. Sólo un poquito mejor y dotada de mayor gracia que un bodrio de la calaña de Bride Wars, de un año antes.
In honor of my last year as a teenager, I decided to make this list of all the coming-of-age/high school/teen…
because we live in a post-meg-ryan's-career dystopian wasteland
and also just because they're rare
