She’s bright, she’s pretty, and she’s in love… with stores. She just can’t help it. Every time she passes the window of an upscale shop, her heart skips a beat and her credit card takes a beating. Journalist Rebecca Bloomfield (Isla Fisher) rents a room from her best friend Suze (Krysten Ritter) while looking for her dream job at a top fashion magazine run by Alette Naylor (Kristin Scott Thomas). Finding that job unavailable, she’s serendipitously routed to the office of handsome entrepreneur Luke Brandon (Hugh Dancy), the editor of a struggling finance magazine. And there she gets a job writing a successful column on responsible shopping, while she herself has no way to pay off her $16,000 credit card bill or to escape from a tenacious debt collector. It’s enjoyable with fun, supporting performances by Joan Cusack, John Goodman, John Lithgow, Wendie Malick, Julie Hagerty and Fred Armisen. Even Lynn Redgrave drops in… literally.
