"The Shopaholics" is a special Chinese New Year movie which features a star-studded cast including Cecilia Cheung, Lau Ching Wan and Jordan Chan. Cecilia plays the shopaholic Fong Fong, who easily falls in love with the best and latest items from her favourite designer labels. After losing her job, Fong Fong seeks the help of psychologist Gan Yan (Lau Ching Wan) who always has a problem when it comes to making decisions. Later, Fong Fong also meets a rich but stingy millionaire named Kong Fu (Jordan Chan) and soon, the shopaholic finds herself falling for both her doctor and rich millionaire friend but she's not really clear about who she loves.
At first, the story may be simple and predictable though still fun to watch, but as the movie progresses, the story becomes more and more exciting as more complications arise, compelling Cecilia's character to feel pummeled by all the chaos that's surrounding her. An exciting part of the show which you can look forward to is the wedding scene, totally unexppected, where total confusion results in shame, frustration, and humour.

Overall, this is one Chinese New Year movie that is very entertaining and delightful watch!!! A must to watch if u haven do so :P
