Storyline

Struggling with her debilitating obsession with shopping and the sudden collapse of her income source, Rebecca Bloomwood unintentionally lands a job writing for a financial magazine after a drunken letter-mailing mix-up. Ironically writing about the very consumer caution of which she herself has not abided, Rebecca's innovative comparisons and unconventional metaphors for economics grants her critical acclaim, public success, and the admiration of her supportive boss Luke. But as she draws closer to her ultimate goal of writing for renowned fashion magazine Alette, she questions her true ambitions and must determine if overcoming her "shopaholic" condition will bring her real happiness. Written by The Massie Twins

Horrid, not funny in the least, vapid pap
27 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Bill Hicks airs this best: "Bill's review: piece of sit." Straight up! This film is a clown-school reject, a copy of "Sex And The City" mixed with "The Devil Wears Prada", albeit with no allure whatsoever. Plot: an airhead who shops too much without being funny at all is the star of this "comedy" where she constantly evades getting caught up in her lies regarding her spending, while spewing jokes that aren't really jokes, e.g. "You speak Prada?" and being pap. Oh yeah, while finding love through an Englishman who's her boss. How exotic and feminist. This probably makes "Manos, The Hands Of Fate" very good in comparison. See "Shooting Fish" and forget this never happened.
