Movie Release

Confessions of a Shopaholic is being released tomorrow. You will probably be surprised to hear that I am boycotting it. I will not go see it at the movie (probably will break down and see it on DVD though). I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Shopaholic book series. It is so great, but from watching the previews, I think they have really screwed up the movie.

The main character in the book, Rebecca Bloomwood, is British and lives in London. In the movie, she is American and lives in NYC. What the heck? I mean, Hello? Would Bridget Jones have been the same if she had been made to be American in the movie? I think NOT!

Another point of contention with the movie is that it was styled by Patricia Field from Sex and the City fame. She is great for SATC, but has turned Becky Bloomwood into a crazy "Carrie" dressing character. I don't think that is true to the book character either.

Finally, my other bone with the movie is that the guy they cast to play her love interest seems totally wrong (at not at least the way I invisioned the character as I read all 4 of the books).

So, while I had high hopes when I heard they were making the movie, I am afraid they will kill the love of Shopaholic for me and thus will not participate this weekend.

I'm still hoping to tick off one more Oscar movie from my list though!
