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
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.
