Newcomer Isla Fisher shines in this amusing light comedy about a journalist who writes for a garden magazine, yet is bending over backwards to try to secure a position with a fashion periodical - like the prestigious "Alette". Therefore, unless you're male and of that unique brand that actually enjoys shopping, one would have to rate this one as very definitely a "chick-flick". Still, I found it enjoyable for all that...
It would not be out of place to have called it "The Green Scarf". Yet that may make it sound more like a mystery thriller; so perhaps the present title - albeit cumbersome - is a a better choice. Ms Fisher plays Rebecca Bloomwood, who is indeed a compulsive shopaholic, so much so that she often maxes out her credit cards on items (like the green scarf) that she impulsively feels at the time that she simply has to have! Her longsuffering father, Graham Bloomwood, is deftly played by John Goodman; while others in the cast include John Lithgow, Hugh Dancey, Robert Stanton...and Lynn Redgrave, who plays an unnamed drunken lady at a party!
At the end, Rebecca finds herself writing, for a new magazine, semi-autobiographical articles with titles like Confessions of a Shopaholic!
In the glamorous world of New York City, Rebecca Bloomwood is a fun-loving girl who is really good at shopping - a little too good, perhaps.
She dreams of working for her favorite fashion magazine, but can't quite get her foot in the door - until ironically, she snags a job as an advice columnist for a financial magazine published by the same company.
As her dreams are finally coming true, she goes to ever more hilarious and extreme efforts to keep her past from ruining her future.
