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.
Will the film appeal to the franchise's core fan base? Yeah, I suppose. To the rest of the world, this is one of the most aggressively unlikable films to hit screens in quite some time. (Parental Review also included)
The film might have triumphed as a musical: camp, virtually plotless, and liberally sequined. But sadly this sequel is not Sex and the City -- it is Menopause in the Desert, and a waste of four great characters.
