Confessions of a Shopaholic
I love seeing movies that are based on books. Because let's face it, if you're a writer, that is like the ultimate dream-- to see the characters you've only ever seen in your head, played out on the big screen. So, tonight I saw "Confessions of a Shopaholic" based on the novel of the same name by Sophie Kinsella. And I must say I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was cute, clever, and clean. And oh so funny. Wasn't a huge fan of Hugh Dancy before this, but his adorable British accent, and charming personality won me over. By the end of the movie I was thinking, yeah, he's pretty hot. So, anyway, if you want to be entertained and not have to worry about shielding your eyes in discomfort (like I had to do at a movie last week) then this is a must see.

Really? REally? It was good? I've been a little bit afraid to see it.. and Hello? NOT a hugh Dancy fan? Hehehe! He did so good as Prince Char in Ella Enchanted! LOL! I loved his accent! Of course, I was living in Portugal at the time... we'll see how he fairs now that I live in england and hear that accent everywhere!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tip! Jenni
DD said it was a feel good flick.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed it. It was definitely a cute film. Love me some Hugh Dancy. And that girl who played the lead was adorable.ReplyDelete
I've been waffling as to whether I want to see it or not. As a pureblood NON shopaholic, I'm pretty sure I won't be able to relate to the main character.ReplyDelete
That said, I might see it. Hugh Dancy makes me weep, he's so gorgeous. (Have you seen him in the Masterpiece Theater version of Daniel Deronda? SWOON!)
Speaking of book made into movie ... speaking of hunks, has anyone seen the new movie with Brendon Frasier? I don't remember the name of the book or the movie, just that my eye-candy stars in it.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see it. I thought it looked cute from the preview. I like Hugh Dancy. Now I have to go find that version of Daniel Deronda Renee was talking about. Nothing like a classic and a cute guy!ReplyDelete
Tricia, that's Inkheart. Also a very cute, clean movie.ReplyDelete
I wanted to see this movie but was afraid it would be dumb--glad it wasn't and will add it to my rental list.ReplyDelete
Jenni, yes, it was super cute. And I know, Hugh Dancy, he was in Ella Enchanted (love that movie) but I just wasn't sold on him. But, now I am.ReplyDelete
Angie, it was I felt great.
Nat, I know, Isla Fisher did a great job.
Renee, yeah, I'm not a shopaholic either (in fact, I'm style challenged) but it was super cute and funny.
Tricia, I had no idea what movie you were talking about, so thanks Nat, for providing the name. After Natalie said, Inkheart, I was like, oh, of course. Anyway, yes, Brendan Fraser is a cutie.
Candi, I know, when Renee mentioned that movie I was like, we should get together and watch it.ReplyDelete
Terri, yeah, I thought it might be dumb too, but I was pleasantly surprised. You'll like it.
Thanks for the review! Im going! PS I miss you! Want to come to AZ?ReplyDelete
Jenny, I always want to go to Arizona. LOL Are you coming up with a good excuse for me? I was so bummed when you guys didn't come. What's up? Tyler has to work or something? Come on. Working is overrated.ReplyDelete
This looks like fun!!! Thanks for the review. :)ReplyDelete
