Confessions of a Shopaholic 

 

Confessions of a Shopaholic is a real growth movie. Becky Bloomwood ( played by Isla Fisher) gets in way over her in head in credit card debt. Twelve cards reach over sixteen thousand in debt. This becomes a major problem when she loses her job. She also slowly starts to come to the realization (mainly thanks to friends of hers) that she has a problem. She is addicted to shopping. Through a series of lies she acquires a new job, and avoids a credit collection agency. Her ray of sunshine is her column: “The Girl in the Green Scarf.” This column becomes a huge hit and gives wonderful advice from the heart.

Visually speaking there are a lot of different colors, styles, and accessories shown. At the beginning of this movie the main character Becky almost worships products in the stores. It takes her a long time to break the addiction. There are a few scenes and music videos with risqué attire choices. One of the major ones happens because her coat gets ripped and she has to leave it behind.

I was not fond of a lot of the language or the lying in this movie. I was pleased to see Becky finally decide to be truthful, and how she embraced her problem. Selling all the stuff she had bought to pay off the debt is the most sensible thing she could have done in my opinion. There are short snippets of interesting music throughout Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Confessions of a Shopaholic contains a ton of extras (Blu-ray was used for review). The Bloopers (a few silly dances) and Deleted Scenes were among my personal favorites. I was not really fond of the music videos, but the behind the scenes features kept me going for quite some time after watching the movie. Both the Bu-ray and Digital Copy was included in the reviewable unit Family Friendly Gaming received.

First off I love the intelligent design for the menu screens. The words are a little small, but that is a minor thing compared to the length of load times, and having trouble with certain special features not coming up in a few minutes. I found this to be an enjoyable movie with a few minor issues.

Confessions of a Shopaholic teaches the lesson of being a good steward with our money. Frivolous spending is never a good idea. Humor came from Becky’s outrageous lies. I was happy to see her turn her life around.
