Just like the first film, this sequel is stupid and stretches forever, following those four selfish, shallow middle-aged women whose pathetic personal conflicts never justify 146 minutes. And what kind of woman wears a vintage cream Valentino skirt while making muffins?
Something of a mess in its structure starting with one theme, then leaving it behind for a jolly up in what appears to be an unashamedly promotion for a country with a terrible human rights record. It's a farcical last 20 minutes too before bringing it back around to the initial 'trouble and strife' theme. It just feels stuck within its television series origins.
Presents the protagonists as materialistic shallow individuals who are apparently also racially insensitive, nothing alike to their television characterizations. An unfortunate take on what was once authentic character portrayals, now an over the top profit maker.
Even fans of the series will have a hard time getting through this one. What got me the most was how ethnocentric and disrespectful this film was to other cultures. What is empowering for women in one culture is not necessarily so in another. Pull your head out of your ass King.
I would have given this movie a half star, but it did start ok and seemed to have a reasonable plot. However--for some unknown reason--it deteriorated into a wildly stupid plot that inexplicably brought these funny and charming friends to the Middle East. As I watched them in nuns garb, I wondered how in the name of the deity they got to that! If you expect any of the unexpected and surprising finesse of the original Sex in the City....don't. Don't waste your time, even on TV if there is a network brave enough to show something so bad!
