trailer break: ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’

Take a break from work: watch a movie trailer…

Oh the product placement you’ll go!

Girls are so cute with their cute shoes and their cute bags and total lack of financial acumen and their lying on their resumes! Aren’t they? Seriously, what man wouldn’t want to just snap us up?

And they will! So don’t worry, gals: keep on buying all those cute designer shoes and cute designer bags — even if you need to engage in fisticuffs with other women to acquire them. Because you’ll need them to convince rich cute magazine publishers to fall in love with you! Which they will! And then all that pesky credit card debt will melt away, and you can start spending his money! Tee-hee!


How can it be that the depiction of women in movies 60 and 70 years ago was more progressive than it is today? How have we gone from smart, wisecracking adults who could hold our own yakking about sports and politics and business, adults who interacted with men as adults, to simpering, giggly ninnies obsessed with fripperies who have to lie about our work experience to get a job and who interact with men like we’re adorable babies?

How is a character like the one Isla Fischer is playing here something to be applauded instead of something to be pitied? She’s in love with shopping? That’s really… sad.

Confessions of a Shopaholic opens in the U.S. on February 13, and in the U.K. on February 20.
