Watched this with long-lost friends/colleagues at Powerplant Cinema. People has been saying that this is a really nice movie so I wanted to watch it to see if it’s really good.
This film is an adoption of a famous novel series, shopaholic written by Sophie Kinsella. I haven’t read the book so I really cannot compare. My friends told me that me that it’s very different from the book. I guess it’s really rare for a movie to be better than the books. There’s really no perfect adapation, there’s just good adaptation.
Basically, this movie revolves around a girl who’s a shopaholic. She moved to Manhattan to be part of a magazine called Alette but didn’t get the job. She followed the advice of the receptionist to apply to Successful Saving w/c is also a part of the company where Alette magazine is in. Unfortunately, she initially didn’t get the job as well. Frustrated, she wrote letters to both Alette Magazine & Successful Savings editors while she was drunk. She mistakenly exchanged 2 letters. She ended up being hired to Successful Savings because the editor was very impressed with the article she has written. She was then recognized as “the girl with the green scarf”. I don’t wanna indulge more details as people who has not watched it might get so pissed off reading my post hehehe.
I can’t really say that it’s an excellent movie. What I can say is… it is a feel-good movie. If you had a stressful day and wanna relax then this is the best movie to watch. It’s funny & light
My Rating for Confessions of a Shopaholic: 3.5 out of 5 stars.
