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…
"At the time, one of the greatest victories for the show was that the women had levelled themselves to spend like men. The ’90s ideology of ‘shop, shop, shop’ might seem trite now, a coded message of corporations to get you to spend more, but it was and still is liberating in how it treats the value of women’s wants and desires. Rather than condemn them for being frivolous, it raises them to the same level as the Wall Street players whose vanity purchases are socially accepted and even celebrated. The freedom of an economy that seemed to be working allowed for this kind of frank celebration of greed to feel empowering, however short-sighted that seems today."

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 know this movie is bad but idgaf, I cried.
Honestly is there anything better
Having the worst hangover and having a girlfriend choosing this film is not my standard Sunday, but it could have been alot better.
This film is probably not for my demographic but by Christ this should not have been anywhere near 2 and a half hours.
As for the story it was very predictable and quite honestly very unrealistic. I know it's supposed to be a love tale but if I got jilted at the wedding I would say fuck you.
Not awful but definitely not for me.
I like the show but this was just a distillation of all the stereotypes
Puras pendejas haciendo puras pendejadas.
I've been slowly getting through all the seasons of Sex and the City these last few months and enjoying it far more than I thought possible. The beauty of the four main characters - Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte is that they truly represent the approaches to love, sex and relationships that I see in myself and women all around me. It's such a wonderful feminine point of view on sex and relationships. The girls go through far more men than most of the real-life women I know do, but if they didn't the series would not have been able to explore so many different aspects of sex and relationships.
I'm probably somekind of mix of Miranda and Carrie in…
Never watched the show. Fun weekend movie to waste a couple hours on.
i can't believe this movie invented drama
after a week of actively binge-watching sex and the city and loving it i decided to rewatch the first movie and try and get around to the second one
but don't come for me but this movie is everything to me
1st half: ★★★
2nd half: ★
Full disclosure: I put this on for my wife, as a surprise and a - presumably welcome! - break from my film choices. She loves SATC & I must admit that I've sometimes enjoyed the glimpses of the show when she watches it. This film doesn't seem to reflect the wit and character of the show -- but then what do I know?
