Confessions of a Shopaholic

PhotobucketPhotobucketManhattanite with a shopping addiction and in serious debt, unintentionally gets a job as a financial advice columnist. Oh the irony! Schizophrenic mess of a film warns against the dangers of consumerism while it lovingly celebrates expensive designer labels, often in the very same scene. Isla Fisher is pleasant enough in the title role, and actor Hugh Dancy does his best Hugh Grant impression as magazine editor, Luke Brandon. Superficial, formulaic story brings to mind several other, more enjoyable films. Poorly written chick flick is shockingly based on a bestselling novel.
