Saw three movies last weekend, still have reviews for Fanboys and He’s Just Not That Into You on their way. But, it’s time to look at what is playing this week. There are five movies opening this week, three everywhere and two others are in limited release.

One day she gets a job working as an advice columnist for a financial magazine owned by the same company of the fashion magazine she wants to work for. He column becomes a big success, which only helps to spur on her shopping addiction until things threaten to spiral completely out of control.

First Thoughts: This is what I will be going to see this Friday. As with most movies, I just hope it comes close to being as good as it looks in the trailer, which is pretty good.
