    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Confessions is no more than a painless time-waster. But the beguiling Fisher is well worth the investment. show more

    San Francisco Chronicle

    It's a shame that "Confessions" doesn't aim higher because there is a great film to be made about the consumer bait-and-switch that has led so many Americans to live beyond their means. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Not only is it an unfunny movie shrilly told, it probably is the most ill-timed and appallingly insulting movie in recent memory. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The production renders totally irrelevant all hopes for a well-made movie. It's one of those ragged, pandemonious studio comedies that hammers at plot points in every contrived scene. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    The film's recycled nature is most evident in director P.J. Hogan's attempt to marry the farcical hijinks of an "I Love Lucy" episode to an addiction scenario that would not be out of place in "The Lost Weekend." show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    There are some mildly amusing turns from costars like Kristin Scott Thomas, playing an icy editor, and Robert Stanton, as her frustrated debt collector. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    The end product is surprisingly charmless -- a shrill "Devil Wears Prada"/"Bridget Jones"/"Sex and the City" knockoff that keeps threatening to fall apart at the seams. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It glories in its silliness, and the actors are permitted the sort of goofy acting that distinguished screwball comedy. We get double takes, slow burns, pratfalls, exploding clothes wardrobes, dropped trays, tear-away dresses, missing maids of honor, overnight fame, public disgrace and not, amazingly, a single obnoxious cat or dog. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    This movie has no light to shed on the matter. It is its own contradiction: a film about confessions in which nothing much is confessed. show more

    As unrealistic as the talking mannequins, but we’re pleasantly surprised by how good this movie makes us feel. show more

    Had fun watching this. Sort of like CLUELESS meets Legally BLonde, but Confessions definitely has it's own signature.

    this was one of my favorite movies i have seen in a long time. it was very appealing because of the great actors they chose. Isla Fisher was great!! alot of differences from the book but maybe even better. very original and interesting!!

    Exactly! KMonachi, is very right...by the title and everything else...such as the previews you may have thought this is a Chick Flick ITS NOT! In this economy it is real life and gives you a haha moment. 100 percent must see film. I have to say, I was with my mom and she loved it. But GUYS, you would enjoy it....so take your girlfriends your wives or even your daugters see SHOPAHALIC. Excellent two thumbs up as always to the head actress. Love. Regards. Rachelle
