Steve Martin is such a legend that it is strange to envision a time(such as when this film came out) when he was in a slump of some proportions. This is a comedy about a lawyer who upon a divorce finds himself in close quarters with a woman who is diametrically different to what he wants or expects. Bringing Down the House offers proof that there are times when superior performances can salvage a mediocre script. Despite working with a screenplay that would be deemed thin by some TV sit-coms, Steve Martin, Queen Latifah, and Eugene Levy combine to transform this motion picture into a rewarding movie-going experience. The chief pleasure of Bringing Down the House is watching the stars interact. The best mentality to bring to the movie is that of watching a 105-minute series of comedy sketches. This film is a must watch for fans of comedy.(Hilarious comedy starring Steve Martin and Queen Latifah).
Sex and the City 2 is all set-up with no pay-off. It's bad soap opera, and every time it comes close to addressing an interesting issue - such as how the reality of a marriage differs from the idealized preconception of one - it quickly backtracks, apologizing along the way for getting serious. Fans will bathe in this sewer of materialistic excess because they appreciate any opportunity to spend time with their favorite characters. Everyone else will stare at the screen in a state of enhanced boredom if the sheer tedium of watching this production doesn't shut down the brain altogether. The first Sex and the City movie was marginally watchable. There was a narrative line, the characters weren't consistently reprehensible, and the humor wasn't quite as forced. Sex and the City 2 has taken all that was bad about its predecessor and amplified it.(Materialism, consumption and nothing more: Avoid with a capital A).
