Once again, Michael Patrick King packs four movies into two and a half hours, and yet there's not quite enough substance for one film. There plenty of snappy one-liners and silly situations, but it will severely test the patience of any non-fan.
It may be easy to dismiss it as a merely superficial experience: it's all about the clothes, the shoes, the designer life, and of course that's part of it. But it's also about the lives of these women that we've shared for twelve years now.
There's still enough of the Sex and the City magic for those who fell in love with the show more than a decade ago. Nothing is as smart as it was; it's not as edgy, it's not as cute, it's sagged a bit. But then, haven't we all?
The nasty critic assault is a 'veiled' attack on sexual empowerment of older women. And makes it seem that females are pariahs more here than the Mideast. If only these 'make war not love' critics were as outspokenly outraged against the US military there
The film is most likeable when it remembers that it is meant to be more than an exercise in middle-aged, middle-class smugness and self-absorption. Its principal strength remains its celebration of female friendship.
I loved Sex and the City 2, enjoying every single campy, over-the-top moment. It's a crime that we have to wait possibly another two long years for the next installment to possibly come out. What's up with that?
