This week's reviewed movie is:
Sex and the City




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber


The big movie screen adaptation shows how the lives of the four T.V. stars of Sex in the City undergo different kinds if life crises that ensure they all come together for mutual support.

The script is superb, giving each of the actresses equal screen time and ensuring that there are laughs and tears in equal measures.

Fans of the series can rest assured, as the movie is written and directed by the T.V. show's producers.

Remember men, this is the ladies' show. Bring on the sequels and enjoy. I did.

And, yes, it's a little naughty.

Shoe maven Carrie Bradshaw is back to tell us more about her friends' relationships

Still in search for enough closet space to house her designer threads, the authoress ups the ante by deciding to marry -- thus starting an avalanche of personal problems.

To fans of the show, it's a great reunion movie full of surprises, but to those of us who were not, it's an overlong chick flick that seems to run too much like a soap opera.

Sex and the City, the film, begins by catching up with where the lives of the characters have gone since the end of the T.V. show.

The flick relies on viewer fans that have grown with these individuals over the years.

Those starting the trip with the movie will, in some cases, come away wondering why anyone would care about four unpleasant, shallow, self-absorbed women.

The storyline is a slow-paced soap opera with very little character development.

The four main stars are largely in the same place at the end of the picture as they are at the beginning.

The plot revolves around the lives of four disagreeable, distasteful individuals whose values are more screwed up than their love lives, in my opinion.
