Sex And The City Review

1107 words - 4 pages

Unlike many, many, many of you out there that completely HATED this movie, I on the other hand was appeased. Right now, I know you all (that have seen the movie) probably think I'm nuts, but before you judge me, read my review and explanations.

For those who have not yet seen the movie and plan on it: DO NOT READ THIS!

Now, I think a huge reason why I didn't find this movie so horrible is because I went in with hugely low expectations based on the trailer, so the few funny and likable parts of the film to me were a huge success. But yes, I do agree with many of those out there, it's still shameful compared to the series, and even the last film. I don't even understand why they even bothered with a sequel, to me that's beating a dead horse and tarnishing the success that is Sex and the City.
This movie was trite, there, I've said it, now on with the review.

What I liked about it:

I loved seeing the girls, and it was especially nice seeing Miranda far more chipper and positive than I've ever seen her, but without it taking away from her personality.

I also enjoyed the few funny moments, like their camel ride and where Charlotte had camel toe. And also, albeit really silly and more boy-like humour, the nanny with no bra.

And most of the fashion was ridiculous, but I always thought that even in the series and last movie, the fashion has always been ridiculous, even living in NYC, I don't know why anyone would wear 90% of the things they are costumed in. The ultimate article of outrageously ugly fashion in this film is Samantha's spiky, glittery, shoulder armor during their karaoke moment. I mean seriously, what the hell is that??! Seems far more dangerous than anything else. And for the longest time, Carrie's wardrobe would be more suitable for a street walker, and even then, one with terrible taste, however in this film she is definitely a lot more demure. But that's what I have loved about Sex and the City, I couldn't wait to see what the next crazy outfit these girls would be thrown into.

Oh, a good example, Carrie's sunglasses, A-MAZING!

And I always find the general quipping between the girls pretty funny and kinda love the general cheesiness too, lol.

Now the bad:

The opulence and over indulgence of this film is ludicrous. I mean, did they not think that considering most people have been hit hard by the recession (especially in the USA) that this over-the-top-ness is just plain tacky? And not chic nor glamorous?

Now the plot, I know there was one in there somewhere, just really tricky to spot, someone let me know when they have found it, please. Oh wait a sec.....is it when they complain about the petty problems in their over-indulgent lives, and how they deal with it (the poor dears) the story line? Oh yes, that's it....hmm, somehow I don't see how that spoke to many. So let's examine the so-called "plot":

1) Carrie is feeling humdrum about married life after two years, and meeting and kissing Aiden in Abu...
