Based on Sophie Kinsella’s best-selling chick lit series, Confessions of a Shopaholic stars Isla Fisher as Rebecca Bloomwood, a plucky Manhattanite who’s never met a Gucci handbag she didn’t like — and she has the AmEx bills to prove it. When her savings-be-damned attitude catches up with her and creditors come calling, Rebecca hatches a plan to make her debt disappear like a pair of Prada pumps on clearance. But instead of landing her dream fashion mag job, she ironically ends up as an advice columnist at a sister financial publication. Rebecca quickly learns how to use her wit and shopping prowess to appeal to female readers — and cute co-worker Luke Brandon (Hugh Dancy).
