Personally, I hate the direction they took the movie. They made Becky American & she isn't at all like the character in the book. I don't think I'll watch this until the DVD comes out.

Does NOT look good. I'll probably watch it anyway, but I'll wait for it to come out on DVD. I agree with you. Not the right direction for the movie.

Well, I am apparently going to be in the minority, but I think it looks cute. But, I wasn't impressed by the book, so we'll see.

Watched it last nite.  Thumbs Down.   Only similarity between book and movie was the title.  Should have been called "The Girl with the Green Scarf".

(and wasn't the scarf in the book blue and purple??)

I watched it last night too. It was so bad I didn't even watch the whole thing...turned it off about half way through.

This made me sad because the books were so funny! The shopaholic series is actually what got me hooked on chick lit. I think they really missed an opportunity here. The guys have their stupid spiderman, batman, superman, x-men, etc. series. Why can't women have a funny chick flick series???? Such a waste!

Oh that is so disappointing. I haven't seen it yet and hoped it would be horrible. Oh well. Hope they do better with The Time Traveler's Wife.

Me too! I can't wait for it to come out. I love love The Time Traveler's Wife and I like Rachel McAdams too, so hopefully it will be great! :)
