Confessions of a Shopaholic

Starring the delightful Isla Fisher, Confessions of a Shopaholic is a predictable romantic comedy from director P.J. Hogan that although doesn't push the boundaries is still an entertaining movie.

The story revolves around Rebecca Bloomwood (Fisher) who spends first (ala Credit Card) and considers the consequences after and unfortunately for Rebecca, she is in a considerable amount of debt. To compound the situation, her current job is a dead-end and she has dreams of working in the fashion industry as a writer.

Fate decides to throw Rebecca a chance at getting her foot in the door by working for a money magazine and she ends up writing the magazine's most popular column, The Girl in the Green Scarf. Falling for her boss, Rebecca is chased by a debt collector as she attempts to thwart him, until it eventually all falls apart and she unwittingly hurts her best friend.

Of course, all things fall into place which sadly makes this a tad predictable at times, however the film has some great performances from Fisher as the quirky and cute Rebecca, including Hugh Dancy (her boss), John Goodman (her dad) and a variety of other interesting and fun performances. The comedy nicely holds together the drama segments of Confessions of a Shopaholic that makes a fun movie for a Saturday night.

On blu-ray, the video quality is quite impressive with sharp images, realistic skin tones and great colours. Matched with a very impressive sound track that makes full use of the surround sound, Confessions of a Shopaholic is a true movie experience. Lastly, the Blu-ray version features some lighthearted special features from some great bloopers, music videos and behind the scenes.

An interesting premise that falls for the same Hollywood formula of this genre.
