We met Cher (Alicia Silverstone) with shopping bags in hand. Her sanctuary of choice? The iconic Westside Pavillon.
Pretty Woman (1990):
Asking Julia Roberts' Vivian to leave your boutique would be a big mistake.
Giselle (Amy Adams) doesn't know what to wear for the ball. But 6-year-old Morgan saved the day... with dad's credit card. It's like a fairy tale.
Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011):
When rich ladies' man Jacob (Ryan Gosling) sees newly single 40-year-old Cal is content wearing New Balances and keeping his money in a velcro wallet, he insists on a shopping spree. "Be better than the Gap," Jacob says.
Ocean's 8 (2018):
We're introduced to Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) fresh out of jail and fresh out of a nice wardrobe. That's not a problem for Danny Ocean's sister, who finesses mall employees into giving her everything she needs.
Wonder Woman (2017):
We can't blame the princess of the Amazons (Gal Gadot) for trying out 226 outfits before finding the right get-up. Also, her shield and sword make for perfect accessories.
Will Ferrell's Buddy the Elf had many ups and downs on his first trip to the mall. Let's not judge him too much for not understanding how an escalator works.
It's safe to say retired Special Forces soldier John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is an aggressive shopper. In this clip, Matrix takes it upon himself to smash through a storefront to not only pick up some new clothes, but a new rocket launcher too. Quite a stocking stuffer.
National Lampoon's European Vacation (1985):
As the Griswolds fight off a potentially disastrous vacation, they decide to take a break and go shopping in Italy. Let's hope they never wore those outfits more than once.
Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009):
The Disney Channel's favorite pop star (Miley Cyrus as Montana) is getting really famous. How famous? "Name it and its yours" famous. When she goes shopping and finds a perfect pair of shoes, she's ready to fight Tyra Banks, even if it means spectators are going to take plenty of photos.
