A new job? Hopefully.
A new man? Possibly.
A new handbag? Absolutely!
For the fans of "Sex and the City" and "Legally Blond," the now famous book by Sophie Kinsella, "Confessions of a Shopaholic," has finally been filmed.
The timing of the movie's release could have been better 's considering the economic crisis and common credit problems the world over. Rebecca Bloomwood, outstandingly played by Isla Fisher, is obsessed with fashion. She is a young and single journalist.
Since her childhood, Rebecca has dreamed of a credit card. Now she has twelve of them. The problem is, she learns that all of her cards are maxed out on the same day she loses her job.
Indecently, the cute editor of a financial magazine who lent her $20 to buy a scarf "she would die without" becomes her new boss.
Soon Rebecca becomes a guru with advice on how to allocate funds and warnings about consumer protection. She explains complicated things using women's language 's fashion. In any case, it saves her from pursuit of her creditor.
With a unique sense of humor and plenty of ingenuity, Rebecca manages to overcome her obsession with shopping, pay her bills and understand that there are things more important in life.
Many will find this film quite primitive. Those that remember that this is a romantic comedy, however, will be pleased 's there is lots of comedy and a bunch of romance. There are fabulous outfits, picturesque views and an enormous amount of positive emotions.
It is a great movie for a "girls night out," but probably not the best to take a man to.
Now showing in Estonia, coming soon to Latvia and Lithuania
