Sex and the City 2 (2010)



Critic Consensus: Straining under a thin plot stretched to its limit by a bloated running time, Sex and the City 2 adds an unfortunate coda to the long-running HBO series.

Critic Reviews for Sex and the City 2

All Critics (200) | Top Critics (40)

Sarah Jessica Parker is now 45 years old, and, frankly, I cannot stomach another moment of the simpering, mincing, hair-tossing, eyelash-batting little-girl shtick she's been pulling ever since L.A. Story.

Top Critic

This is the kind of movie that its participants refer to in small, dismissive groans at reunion parties.

Full Review… | October 11, 2013

A cliched mess, this comedy lacks the carefree humor of its superior predecessor.

Full Review… | December 25, 2012
Big Hollywood

Writer/director Michael Patrick King seems intent on turning Carrie into the most irritatingly selfish, shallow, materialistic character ever to hit any screen.

Full Review… | June 2, 2012

An echo of the series' glory, but that won't stop the fans. Costumes and one-liners take precedence over female bonding.

Film Journal International

This franchise is now officially at war with itself. In order to maintain audience demand for a high level of vicariously thrilling wealth.

Audience Reviews for Sex and the City 2


Okay, it's not likely to win any new fans, but if you like the girls and the show, you are going to enjoy this.
A lot of people have claimed the change of location is not a good thing, but I did not personally mind it. I would not really want to see Sex & the City 3 (if there is one, and I'm sure there will be!), set elsewhere, but for a change, this was fine.
A few laughs and some more serious parts - I think most people married for a few years could relate to Carrie's situation (I really thought the reviewers calling her whiney were harsh!). Sex & the City has always been about relationships, both with girlfriends and men, and this is more of the same.
At 2 and a half hours it is very long, and if you are not a fan, it is going to wear out it's welcome pretty quickly, but for me, it went pretty quick and enjoyed it.
UPDATE - 30/11/13. Just rewatched this and instantly downgraded it from 4 stars. Wtf was I thinking? I think this seems worse than on the first watch because I watched the entire series again first, which is great, then the first movie, which is not bad.
This actually not good. And what the hell is up with Carrie? She looks so old here. Older than she looks now when you see her in mags. That mousy hair and tan do her no favours.
And second time around, I hate the change of scenery. They should have left it in New York.

The girls are back together 2 years on. Marriage doesn't suit Carrie and Big. They want a break from each other. Samantha takes the girls on holiday to UAE. Carrie meets Aidan in a street market. Some stereotypes and condescending attitudes towards Middle Eastern culture and traditions.

Basic chick flick with nothing overly exciting or special about it.
