Sex and the City - One more time!


Like many other women, I'm a HUGE fan of Sex and the City. I didn't watch it originally when the series aired, but later on in college through the DVDs. I actually got the whole set for my birthday one year! I couldn't resist these four single, independent women with some killer fashion sense and amazing shoes. Sex and the City was about the bond between real friends, the relationships they encountered, their love for the City, and most of all it showed how fabulous women could be without men.

I was really looking forward to the 1st movie, and I enjoyed it! But SATC2, I'm not too interested in, only because it seems that they're making it to make it, its all about the $$ & success of the first one. There's not much there in the story line the 2nd time around, and it seems a little outlandish & far fetched they're going to Abu Dhabi; but then again its Sex and they can pretty much get away with any costume design and look amazing! I'm not saying that I won't watch it because I'm probably going to end up seeing it, it just doesn't excite me like the first one did!

It might not have excited as many viewers as they hoped either, Sex and the City 2 fell short of expectations of 60 million with 51.3 million from this memorial day weekend opening, but they had some tough competition from Prince of Persia and family friendly Shrek. Although it is expected to pick up. This memorial day weekend was a slump in the movie business, but maybe thats attributed to high ticket prices and recession conscious consumers. I know I don't go to the movies as often as I once did and the prices are DEF way higher than they use to be!

So my question to you guys is, are you going to watch Sex and the City 2? & If you have watched it, what did you think of it?

GREAT post! I saw it and you're pretty much dead on. It was not as fabulous as the first one by any means. Although, as a fan I couldn't not see it. The fashion is amazing....and that's about it.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

I hardly go out to the movies now either, I basically get all my movies on Netflix of HBO. However, my friend & I did go to a cheaper movie theater to see SATC2. Loved the fashion, but not so much the plot. lol

I still haven't seen the first SATC movie; so I probably won't be seeing SATC2 until it is out on DVD. :)
