i (kinda) heart ... confessions of a shopaholic - the movie ...

... but i totally heart the book. i've read it, like, 5 times (okay 3!).

the movie did not follow the book very well, but it was still a fun movie. i give it 3 1/2 hearts out of 5. lots of cheap laughs, but some real laughs too.

isla fisher was a perfect becky bloomwood, but london was grievously miscast - as new york.

becky bloomwood may be the main character of the book, but london is a close second. reading the book i could feel like i was right there in london - many of the places written about, i've actually been to, before i ever read the book ...

bella pasta


pret a manger

body shop



marks and spencer

notting hill gate

high street kensington

hyde park

camden market


... you get the picture. these are real places to me and when i read about them i am right there in my mind. so, yeah, i really missed london in the movie.

but still i would say, sure, go see the movie.
