Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
Sex and the City
Get carried away.
A New York writer on sex and love is finally getting married to her Mr. Big. But her three best girlfriends must console her after one of them inadvertently leads Mr. Big to jilt her.
A cinematic experience equivalent to goatse.
One of the worst films ever made. For starters, this concept is about 10 years dead. These actresses are too old, and none were particularly great to begin with. To make matters worse, the characters have become so completely out of touch with reality, it's amazing to me any non-millionaire would enjoy watching this film. Everyone here owns a large, beautiful apartment in Manhattan or on the beach in Los Angeles, they have hundreds of pairs of thousand-dollar shoes, they eat with no consequence and drink and have sex with random men like it's a bodily function (alright, I guess that last one technically is).
The core story of this film revolves around Carrie being left at the altar (or…
I really enjoyed HBO's Sex and the City - it was funny, raunchy, and full of awesome fashion moments! The first movie was an attempt to really wrap everything up for every character that did not get addressed when the series ended in 2004 and for the most part it works. Yes it's overly melodramatic at parts, but if you loved the show you should have been happy with this movie. It stays true to the characters and the feel of the world they created.
That sequel is a whole different unnecessary story.
** I usually don't log movies that I've watched on TV, but I'm never going to watch this again so I figured I'd make an exception**
This is what happens when you have a man write a film about women and how they view the world. I've never watched the "Sex and the City" TV series, but if it's anything like this I can't imagine enjoying it.
I find it funny that another female-led HBO series, "Girls", is accused of focusing on white people problems. At least that show focuses on women that struggle with making money- the ladies of "Sex and the City" are filthy stinking rich, and spend two and a half hour whining about their problems, only taking the steps necessary to solve them in the final twenty minutes. It's truly a painful experience.
It was on TV and I couldn't find the remote. (I was also too lazy to get up and turn off the TV) That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
If you have a girlfriend this movie is watchable if the reward is sex.
Too long, uses every stupid cliche in the book. Helpful narration for people too thick to grasp the sledgehammer themes of the script. Ham bone acting. Feminist moral of the story: chicks should do as they are told. Idiotic in every way.
Forever disappointed Samantha and Smith didn't stay together.
After binging a repeat watch of all six seasons (half-watched really, my wife was doing the binging), what a terrible disappointment. Does not feel in any way like the show until way past the middle section, where suddenly Carrie decides to start narrating again. Fashion brands, once gently mocked, get nothing but lascivious product placement. Carrie gets three or four storylines, her three friends get one each, all non-starters (Charlotte...has a baby! Miranda throws Steve out for cheating! Samantha gets bored of her young lover!) compared to the three-dimensional characters in seasons four and five. This is like lending your DVD box set to a once-trusted friend and getting it back to discover their cat shit all over it.
I'm highly disappointed that Charlotte's screams didn't earn her any horror roles.
If you don't buy me shoes, we're getting a divorce.
There is nothing impressive or even notable from a film standpoint here. But nonetheless i loved the movie. I had spent the last two months lost in the television program, living vicariously through these girl's dream Manhattan lifestyles. Honestly the show concluded just fine in the finale, but it was still a blast to get to see all the characters back together.
What do you guys mean, this is supposed to be the better movie?
This is absolute rubbish.
It's just...it's not good.
Late to the party, I recently finished the somewhat infamous HBO series which was fun but nothing amazing itself and naturally decided to polish off this first big-screen sequel to the show.
The film fails to translate the sense of speed, urgency and flighty fun that made the show enjoyable at its best, instead it's overlong, muddled and occasionally racist for good measure.
One highlight had to be Carrie's flip phone falling to the floor in slow motion.
I dread the next instalment.
