Will Confessions Of A Shopaholic Bomb In This Economy?
Just six months ago, the “Sex and the City” movie and its crazy-expensive clothes hit theaters. And we ate it up — even the $800+ pair of Manolo Blahnik heels. Oh, how times have changed. Another movie about conspicuous consumption, “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” will come to a theater near you on February 14. In the movie’s short trailer, designer brands get name-checked, and Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) goes shopping multiple times. Today, AdAge.com writes about how the movie’s timing sucks. The state of the economy has meant that people actually have to change their shopping habits. Some say Touchstone Pictures will have a hard time marketing the movie, but we say they’ll just have to get creative and reshoot a few scenes. Or, who knows, maybe the market will perk up by February. Anyway, our thoughts on how they could tweak the movie to be a little more in sync with these rough economic times, after the jump.
