my thoughts

One word: AMAZING. If you’re looking a movie that will make its audience realize something without being teary-eyed, this is it. The movie conveyed a wonderful message not only to those who are obsessed with shopping but also to all the people who are very compulsive when it comes to something.

The movie is really brilliant. Rebecca Bloomwood is such a funny lady. Funny but is fond of lying. Despite that, I can really sense that she knows how to treasure things but its her wants she prioritizes first. She is really very funny in different ways, at different times. The funniest one was maybe when she was at the elevator and called Derek Smeath. He called her back and when the phone rang, he knew exactly who to find. Okay, that was a nerve-racking scene because the two were like, only a few feet away but I still found it funny. I don’t know if Rebecca was just paranoid when he called him because she did not realize what was to happen until he called her back. This scene is very humorous in some way.

Overall, I love the movie. In fact, this is the 2nd time i watched the movie but I am not sick of it at all! I am a bit like Rebecca because as a wide reader, I put the books in the first priority rather than the food and clothes (because my school has no uniform). I have made a realization to put our wants aside to give way for our needs. The last parts were just great. Rebecca opened an auction to her clothes and other and the money she earned was used to pay Derek Smeath. This part is very inspiring — we could let go of something we really love if we want to. And having someone to help us is a lot easier and an be expected with a better result.
