"Confessions of a Shopaholic" (Blu-ray)

Confessions of a ShopaholicSynopsis

Rebecca Bloomwood (Fisher) wants a job with a fashion magazine, but starts out writing for a different publication on personal finance.

The problem is that her own personal financial situation is terrible because she is addicted to shopping. All her credit cards are maxed out.

One day, she buys a green scarf that she knows she really doesn't need and can't afford, and writes about it in her column.

The column becomes a huge success, she falls in love with her boss, Luke (Dancy), and eventually gets what she wanted in the first place.

Commentary

The plot is simple, harmless, and amusing because we all know someone who just can't resist that scarf they see in the window.

Technical

The image is sharp, but there is not much use of the surrounds (not much need for them, but why not use them at least once in a while?)

Extras

These include Wardrobe, The Green Scarf, New York Fashion Central, Bloopers, Deleted Scenes, and other things such as a Digital Copy (SD DVD) that you can upload to your video iPod.
