Title: 5/5
The title is super amazing. Who doesn’t want to see a movie with a title like that? I am happy that they kept it the same as the book or it would have ruined it for me. Changes that big should not be made.

Cover: 5/5
The cover is gorgeous and fits the movie perfectly! It showed us many insights into the movie and made me even more intrigued. You cant judge a book by its cover, but a movie…

Plot: 5/5
The plot was fantastic. It was so very unique. I have never seen a movie about a shopaholic before and the book was great. It was a tad annoying how they changed some major aspects though.

Acting: 4/5
The acting in the movie was good but a few parts could have been better. I didn’t like the way the roommate was portrayed but it was okay. I would have kept the same actress but shown her differently, with different lines.

Great review. I saw the movie a few weeks ago with my sister and I really thought it was fun. :)
