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.
Seeing this wasn't my choice.
shut up i'm weak
My girlfriend suggested we watch this. I don't care for the show that much, but it's watchable. I don't really get why they even chose to tell this as a movie besides as an excuse for money and to show off outfits. There's no big moments, or crazy sequences, it could have easily just been another season or something. The music in the movie was pretty terrible, there was a super long sequence of the girls dressing in outfits to Aerosmith that was painful. I also hate every character but the blonde. Samantha? A lot of of the characters make dumb decisions and peer pressure each other. Weirdly the most anti-women thing ive seen come from this franchise. Good job.
Never seen the show but I have watched this movie twice and I gotta say that I see the appeal. A group of women who have been close friends for years, living in New York City, wearing fashionable clothing, and being open about their marital and sexual problems, the romance-drama script writes itself. The run time was way too long though and there were definitely scenes that could have been shortened or taken out completely.
Seeing this wasn't my choice.
There are brief moments that recall the charm and wit of the show, and all of them occur after the godawful first half. After the forced wedding drama blows over it slowly becomes a SEX AND THE CITY episode. But most of this is a faint echo of what made these characters and their stories so interesting. It's not so much that this is different from the source and thus unworthy of it, but rather that it's so poorly conceived and executed within the parameters of whatever it's trying to be. The fact that it was directed by a veteran of the HBO series makes this even more specious. As a film this is pretty terrible: hamfisted, sloppy, and moving at such breakneck speed its disorienting.

I don't want to talk about it. I don't think I have the strength to watch the sequel. (BMM 2015)
I forced Derek to watch a two and a half hour Sex and the City movie even though he's never seen an episode and that alone makes this movie a five-star experience.
But, in all honesty, it's not a perfect movie. Hell, it's not even five great episodes of the show put together. But, fuck it, I'm happy saying it's a pretty damn solid series of episodes shoved into one big movie, one that doesn't need to be nearly this long and should have been a three episode mix on HBO instead of a theatrical release.
So, yeah. It's fun, it's got an ace soundtrack (even if some of the scenes it accompanies are shit) and score (emotionally compelling as…
"Will I ever laugh again?"
"When something is really, really funny."
Turns out the thing in question in Kristin Davis shitting herself.
This movie is two and a half hours long. It's weird lifestyle style porn that assumes you're deficient if you're aren't loaded, married, or constantly fucking. This movie is two and a half hours long. Everyone here talks but never actually says anything. There's a 100-minute movie in here somewhere, but it's bogged down by pussyfooting and incident. Again, this movie is two and a half hours long.
This 2008 American romantic comedy is written and directed by Michael Patrick King, and a continuation of the smash HBO comedy series. The four leading ladies return; Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, alongside regulars Chris Noth, David Eigenber, Jason Lewis, Evan Handler, Mario Cantone, Willie Garson and newcomer Jennifer Hudson.
Four New York friends continue with the ups and downs of life in the big city and finally all seem to be happy in their new lives – successful writer Carrie (Parker) is engaged to John “Big” Preston (Noth) as they look to move in together. Samantha (Cattrall) has moved to Los Angeles with her PR business to be close to lover Smith (Lewis). Miranda…
It seemed like a two hour episode, which I suppose is appropriate, and it didn't undo any of the good storytelling that was so consistent throughout the series. A solid and entertaining epilogue, if you will.
My favorite lines (paraphrased)-Miranda: "It's not the same thing!" Carrie: "It's forgiveness."
I have this weird fetish for movies about writers. I love all of them, good or bad.
Please help me…
