Sorry… I have been away too long and this time there are no excuses. I read about this movie in the newspaper on Sunday and was super duper excited. Pucho.. kyun? Kyunki… ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ is a superb book and one of my favorites. I have read and re-read it a million times. The sequels are just as good… and Rebecca (becky) Bloomwood reminds of ‘Me’.
“Wow”; I thought… I actually get to see the movie.
KC and I headed for the nearest mall. We left in the interval. KC started calculating the money we have spent on walking out of theatres… which got me further irritated. After all, life is all about taking chances.. ain’t it?
Coming to the reasons why it sucked… this flick is not completely based on the book. If you have not read the book the movie will seem like a not-so-great chick flick and if you have read the book you will absolutely hate it… I was fuming at the audacity of the director and editor to butcher the book. Luke Brandon (the hero) is one of my fav characters… he is smart, sexy, msucular, rich, magnetic, successful businessman… just like one of the Mills & Boons heros (Google Mills & Boons if you don’t know what it is… while you are at it, go get a life). In the movie, Luke is Becky’s boss… he is not so hot, dresses badly and is an editor.
