Shopaholic Movie… booo

By  | 

So I am reading the SHOPAHOLIC series. I am loving it, but I am not excited about the movie coming out in 02/2009. Here’s what I find VERY wrong from the trailer…

  • The movie is set in New York… Wha? It’s supposed to be in London!
  • Rebecca Bloomwood is NOT a recent college grad, as depicted in the film.
  • Isla Fisher as Rebecca? WTH?
  • Some dorky guy as Luke? Luke is supposed to be tall, dark, and handsome…
  • The trailer has Rebecca trying on bridemaid’s dresses… presumably for her roommate Suze’s wedding. In the book Suze is VERY single…

And now MY picks for the characters:
Billie Piper as Rebecca Bloomwood. She’s from Dr. Who and Secret Diary of a Call Girl. She’s huge in England.

Jude Law as Luke.. ’nuff said.

Emily Blunt as best friend/flatmate Suze. She would be perfect!

Steve Valentine as Tarquin, who’s heart is broken by Rebecca. Creepy, mysterious, pasty, flawless as Tarquin…

And finally:Simon Pegg as Derek Smeath, the banker with a heart. SHAAAUUUUN!!!

Notice that they are all British actors… that wasn’t an accident…

    So do you think I casted it better? I think so…. Isla Fisher is TACKY and I hate that… I am almost done with Manhattan then it’s on to Shopaholic gets Married woohoo!! I bought 2 more books from Sophie Kinsella – Undomestic Goddess and something about drinks… I think Martinis for 3, but it’s written under her real name which I have now forgotten… I am also reading “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime”… very strange…
