Jake and Isla Fisher: Shopaholics

"Fisher lays claim to that Hollywood archetype known as the "ditz," morphing into a flibbertigibbet-wrecking-ball in a frantic comedy that generally manages to paper over its flaws through sheer breathelessness.

As we meet Shopaholic's title character, Rebecca Bloomwood, she is deep in a hell of her own making, $16,000 in credit card debt and being pursued by a collector (Robert Stanton) with the pitbull dedication of Les Miz's Inspector Javert -- and still she keeps buying cute scarves on Fifth Avenue.

Rebecca's well thought-out solution to her problems is to, by sheer force of will, land a dream job at a Vogue-like fashion magazine, run by a French editrix, played by Kristen Scott Thomas (she's back!). For pop-culture enthusiasts, Confessions is a veritable game of actress catch-up, from Thomas to Christine Ebersole to Airplane's Julie Hagarty to Lynn Redgrave (ignominiously cast as "Drunken lady at ball.")
