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.

I realize that gaudy fantasy is essential to this franchise, but why does the fantasy have to be so stunted?

In the end it's the fun movie it's supposed to be. Raise your cosmos in a modest toast.
May 28, 2010
It's an almost avant-garde adventure in aimlessness.
May 28, 2010
An enervated, crass and gruesomely caricatured trip to nowhere [that] seems conceived primarily to find new and more cynical ways to abuse the loyalty of its audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 27, 2010
Remember the old, boundary-breaking, taboo-toppling Sex and the City? Forget it. Neither sex nor the city plays any role in this film.
May 27, 2010
It has no plot to speak of, little in the way of wit or intelligence, and is about 50% longer than can reasonably be justified.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 27, 2010
At two and a half hours, Sex 2 -- like its predecessor -- is a long sit in the shallows, the equivalent of five half-hour episodes strung together.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 27, 2010
The moment of dread. It comes for all beloved series, and in Sex and the City 2, it arrives with embarrassing suddenness.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 27, 2010
Though the 2 in the title implies a double shot of everything fans loved about the series, there is less.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

It's supposed to be Sex and the City. This is Sects and the Souk.

May 27, 2010
The stakes are so low that, during the girls' final madcap sprint through an outdoor market disguised in burqas, the unspeakable outcome they're trying to forestall is the possibility of having to fly home in coach.
May 27, 2010
Twelve years, one beloved HBO series, and two feature films on, the Sex and the City gals have been reduced to Bratz dolls for grown women.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 27, 2010
The movie completely unravels into a pastiche of wish-fulfillment, slapstick, and ham-handed social commentary.

Thanks to writer-director Michael Patrick King, I now have a fair idea how it might feel to be stoned to death with scented candles.
May 27, 2010
It's worse than Sex and the City 1, and that alone is a remarkable achievement.

May 27, 2010
Like a plastic surgeon, storyteller King keeps trying to find new ways to lift and tighten his characters, but they have become garish caricatures of themselves.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
May 27, 2010
The ugly smell of unexamined privilege hangs over this film like the smoke from cheap incense.

This is a sequel that doesn't come close to justifying its existence.

Sex and the City 2 is a champagne cocktail on a runaway train -- fizzy, sparkly, giddy-making, and splashing all over the place.

May 26, 2010
When Carrie asks Big, "Am I just a bitch wife who nags you?" I could hear all the straight men in the theater -- all four of us -- being physically prevented from responding.
May 26, 2010
If you're already sick of the hype and wondering whether a second Sex and the City movie was really necessary, here's a surprising answer: Yes, in fact, it was.

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 she emerged...
May 26, 2010
There's so much glossy sheen to the work that it's easy to forgive the contrived "issues" that must be faced for character growth.

As Carrie might type on her laptop while giving one of her girly little shrugs, When did Sex and the City become so long and mean so little?
Full Review | Original Score: C-
May 26, 2010
It's self-indulgent, way too long and never as clever or funny as it's intended to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 26, 2010
Bad puns, fashion porn, domestic handwringing, contrived plot points, idiotic dialogue and offensive stereotypes. What's not to loathe?
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 26, 2010
I enjoyed these characters more when they were rich, rather than obscenely rich, when their self-involvement and life crises had one foot on planet Earth -- and when they weren't all gussied up like Mae West in Sextette.

As tasteless as an Arabian cathouse, as worn-out as your 1998 flip-flops and as hideous as the mom jeans Carrie wears with a belly-baring gingham top, Sex and the City 2 is two of the worst movies of the year.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 26, 2010
Even director Michael Patrick King, known for his sense of excess, seems to recognize that we've been down this road before, and we know where it ends.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 26, 2010
King and his cast seem content to put everything on autopilot and hope glamour and shopping sprees will be enough to carry them. Nothing much happens -- and it takes 2.5 hours for it not to happen in.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 26, 2010
Though the sequel is a welcome return of the four women we know and love, it's tough not to acknowledge that if we were all friends in real life, at this point we'd probably stop taking their calls.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 26, 2010
An insult to the memory of the cleverly written show and its celebration of friendship, it's a slap in the face for the four gal pals (often photographed at unflattering angles) and an affront to Muslims.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Some of these people make my skin crawl. The characters of Sex and the City 2 are flyweight bubbleheads living in a world which rarely requires three sentences in a row.

Honestly, by the time they ride camels, it's Ishtar in designer gowns.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 26, 2010
It's slower and more of an eye-roller than the first film, but also a lot more about the women.

The only thing memorable about Sex and the City 2 is the number two part, which describes it totally, if you get my drift.
May 26, 2010
In this second screen incarnation of the fabulous HBO series, the satire is sagging, the irony's atrophied and the funny is flabby.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 24, 2010
The most depressing thing about Sex and the City 2 is that it seems to justify every nasty thing said and written about the series and first feature film.
