What's not to Love? (Logan)

Ignore critics when it comes to fluffy, frothy rom-coms!

Seriously. Over at rottentomatoes.com Confessions of a Shop-aholic got a measly 21% fresh in the review-o-meter. But I like the actors, and the bit I've seen in the ads, and one positive review (from the LA Times) said it was romantic, the leads had chemistry and that P.J.Hogan (writer/director of Muriel's Wedding and My Best Friend's Wedding) directed it, and so I told my sister: 'Screw it! Ignore the critics, we're going!' So we went.

And it was DELIGHTFUL! It was hilarious, frothy, fluffy, romantic. Isla Fisher was amazing (she and Amy Adams totally need to play sisters in some movie!), Hugh Dancy was delicious, and all of the supporting players (except Leslie Bibb, who was meh) were OUTSTANDING ... especially John Goodman and Joan Cusack as Rebecca's parents. Plus, for VM-fans, Krysten Ritter (Gia from the second season) was in it substantially and was wonderful. FABULOUS MOVIE!!!!!!
