There's nothing like going to a movie on a cold, rainy, weekend night, but going to the theater is hardly cheap and I don't want to be disappointed with how I spent my money. The previews for Confessions of a Shopaholic made the colorful movie seem right up my ally — a girl with a shopping habit goes into debt, lies to get a job, and has a workplace romance. How much more could it touch on my love for all things career-and-money?
We all know the previews can exaggerate the success of an actual movie, so I turned to my friend BuzzSugar to find out the goods on this film. After learning more about the movie from her, I'm convinced Confessions will be worth my $12. To see what producer Jerry Bruckheimer said to summarize the appeal of Confessions of a Shopaholic,
I think we loved the character. Rebecca Bloomwood is such a unique, fresh, and interesting young girl. She embodies a lot of what young girls around the world deal with. You know, they deal with the credit cards, they deal with the workplace, they deal with a job that they don’t really like and how to get out of it. I think it’s a real empowering . . . it’s empowerment for women. This girl comes to the movie, starts out in one place and ends up in another place much more positive then when she started. She finds romance, she finds something that she really loves doing.
Do you think the movie seems worthy of the ticket price?
