Confessions of shopaholic is a romantic comedy movie that exhibits the glow and glamour of New York and Florida. It lays special emphasis on the nature of females, their fantasies and what could be their wildest dream in life. How much they love to shop and get themselves stuck in guilty of spending much further than they should have to. It gives a very important lesson about materialism, financial management and conspicuous consumption in a very humorous manner. The movie shows the famous Hearst tower of Manhattan along with various brands including Aberta Ferretti, Catherine, Malandrino, Anna Sui, and Valentino. Isla Fisher has carried her character very well. She has well depicted the fantasies and dreams of a young girl from New York but it seemed difficult for her to defend some flaws in script. There were few points that were left unanswered in script as some characters that appeared to have an essential role in film vanished as the movie progressed. However, still it came out to be a blockbuster.
If you are the one who loves adventures, shopping and wants to fulfill your wildest dreams and fantasies than you should watch this light comedy romantic movie. I bet you it’s worth your watch. You will enjoy it.
