2 Nowhere near as good as the BooksNicciD | 22/06/2009 | See all NicciD's reviews (1)This film lets the books down badly. Becky Bloomwood is british in the books and lives in the UK. But in the film she is suddenly American. Its VERY irritating to watch if you are a huge becky fan from reading the books. Isla Fisher does play Becky very well its just a shame its with the wrong accent.I wouldnt bother with the film. Stick to the books and you will get more laughs!!!!I know Sophie Kinsella has been slated on her website for allowing this awful americanised version of her book to be made and fans feel she sold out to hollywood and the cash.Its such a shame as i hope this film doesnt stop people reading the books as it just doesnt do them justice.
