What Sucks…Sex & The City

No spoilers here but a lot of people do want to know why this movie is 2 and a ½ hours long. Well, the answer is obvious- it has to be in order to fit the 4 (FOUR!) fashion show/ “change into different outfits” montages!

Four of them!

Okay, SPOILERS- masochists who plan on seeing this thing may want to skip a little here…

Yeah, I got dragged to this thing. And yeah I’m not happy about it, but am I going to get into a fight about it with my wife? Hell no. I’m gonna suck it up like a man and bitch about it on my blog.

Four changing clothes montages! FOUR!

By the way…they should call this thing “Sex, The City AND Low Self Esteem!”

Carrie is okay with being Big’s 4th choice as long as he builds her a big closet where she can keep all her shoes. Miranda, a successful lawyer who is slumming with a bartender dude passive aggressively denies him sex until he goes outside the marriage for it.

Of course both women are okay taking their men back. Of course, dick-addict Samantha, leaves the dude she’s with, who by all accounts seems to be treating her well, and had stuck with her through some tough times, because giving to him has stopped her from loving herself too much.

Look, I’d get into a more in depth review but I was listening to my iPod for most of the movie- until my charge ran out. Don’t tell my wife.

Sex and the City seems to have a polarizing force... people either hate the movie or love it; so far it seems like the "lovers" outnumber the "haters"

I'm a 40-something-year-old educated single woman. This film was made for me, and I thought it sucked hard. Your review was extremely generous. Let it be known that not all women are dingbats who are seduced by fantasy fashion montages.

Was it just the copy of the film we got at our theater, or did anyone else see the boom mic dip into the scene on more than one occasion. Once for several seconds. Seriously? I guess no one could bear to watch the dailies.
