5 Film Scenes to Get You in the Mood for Black Friday

by Emma Menteath, Editorial Lead

1. Sex And The City

Who could forget the moment when Carrie Bradshaw falls in a Dior boutique in Paris. "I fell," she says simply to The Russian when she returns from her shopping trip. "I fell in Dior. So, I decided that the more I purchased, the less they'd think of me as the American who fell. In. Dior." We feel you Carrie.

2. Pretty Woman

We adore this memorable scene in Pretty Woman when Julia Roberts goes shopping on Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive, only to be rejected by two snobby sales reps. In the words of Vivian Ward: “Big mistake. Big! Huge!”

3. Marie Antoinette

A shopping montage filled with delicious looking cakes, bottles of champagne, luxurious fabrics and expensive jewels. If there ever was a decadent shopping scene, this would be it! And we'll take it all! Just charge it to Louis.

4. Crazy, Stupid, Love

4 words – Ryan Gosling plus shopping - need we say more? In this shopping scene, Ryan Gosling takes Steve Carrell shopping to help him get back into the dating game. It’s not a total myth that some men love to shop.

5. Confessions of a Shopaholic

If there ever was a film dedicated to shopping and a scene more suited for Black Friday, this would be it. Rebecca Bloomwood, played by Isla Fisher, tries to control her shopping urges at a sample sale only to get into a cat fight with another shopaholic. Shoppers can be ruthless.
