Rebecca’s credit cards are maxed, she just lost her job, a debt collector is practically knocking down her door, and yet she can’t…stop…shopping! Kidzworld reviews Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) is many things: she’s passionate, trendy, funny and a bit of a klutz. But more than anything else, Rebecca is a shopaholic. She can’t resist the lure of sales and window displays. After all, if she buys Gucci boots at 50% off, then she’s actually saving money…right?

The Debt Collector

When her credit card bills arrive, Rebecca realizes she’s in trouble. But then the worst happens—she loses her job! How is she supposed to pay off thousands of dollars worth of debt with no income? Especially when she can’t stop spending. She hides the bills under her bed, praying that they’ll disappear. But they don’t. And neither does the debt collector, Derek Smeath, who’s been chasing her down.


The Lady in the Green Scarf

After missing out on a job at her favorite fashion magazine, Rebecca lands the most ironic job of all—financial advice columnist at a boring savings magazine. She writes as “the lady in the green scarf” to keep the debt collector from tracking her down. But before she knows it, Derek Smeath shows up at her new job. Claiming he’s a crazy stalker ex-boyfriend, Rebecca has security escort him off the premises.


Fluent in Finnish

Her cute British boss (Hugh Dancy) takes her to events to mingle with a bunch of bigwigs. There, she gets mistaken for a waitress, and tries to fake her way through a conversation with a Finnish man. More importantly, she and her boss develop feelings for each other. But will he still like her when he finds out she’s a fake? That instead of following her own financial advice, she shops until she’s buried knee deep in debt?


The Bottom Line

Based on a bestselling book by Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic is quirky, cute and fun. Isla Fisher, who looks stunning in her Gucci boots and Prada handbags, plays the perfect fashion addict. If you live for shopping, spend every last penny you earn (and you’re parents’ pennies too), or you can’t resist cute British actors in suits, then you’ll love Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Do You Shop at A&F?

  • Yeah, it's my fave store.
  • I love their clothes, but it's too pricey.
  • A&F is too casual for me - I prefer something more trendy.
  • No way, I hate preppy clothes!
