Review: I cannot, in good conscience, recommend Confessions of a Shopaholic.  The story is considered a comedy; however, the comedy is quite distasteful.  It is set to a well known song of “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.”  The story revolves around a 25 year old woman, Rebecca Bloomwood, who lives with her best friend, Suze, in a trendy part of town.  She has a shopping addiction and her bills are piling up.  Her support group gives her the freedom to get her life back on track.  Furthermore, her parents characteristics of frugality and love set a good example for her.

Things to Like: The moral of theme of the story was that true joy doesn’t come from anything you can buy.
Things to Caution: Lack of modesty, Language and Lying.
