It's a toss up which is a worse fate: replacing original creators with hired hands who approach the series mechanically; or letting the originators continue until it becomes apparent they've run out of steam. Sex and the City 2 picks the latter.
Sex and the City 2 is the female equivalent of Transformers; a big, dumb blockbuster that doesn't require you to think very hard, if at all ... I mourn the death of four memorable television characters that used to mean something to so many.
The spectacle of four supposedly high-achieving, professional NYC sophisticates "Ooohing" and "Aahing" at a tacky gilt and red-brick fantasy Middle East escaped from a Disney rejects storehouse is beyond risible.
