I don't make it to the movie theater often- generally wait for DVDs to come out on Redbox. Sex and the City 2, however, was theater-worthy for me.
The movie itself could have certainly been better as I found the storyline somewhat lacking in substance. At times, it seemed more of a fashion show than a feature film celebrating one of the all time best shows in television history. But ultimately, I went to the theater to see my girls, Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda, and to live vicariously through them for a couple of hours. Why, you say? Simply because I doubt there are many people lucky enough to have such a close-knit group of true friends in their lives, especially such well-dressed friends.
I hated the scenes where Aidan comes back and he and Carrie so wrecklessly risk their vows to their spouses. It's like he doesn't remember at all how he and Carrie ended their relationship and has turned into nothing more than a lonely man looking for a little action. Could have been scripted a bit better.
I loved the scene Miranda and Charlotte discuss the difficulties of motherhood. Everything they talked about was so true- I completely related to all of it. Especially the moments of "mommy guilt."
Another great (although somewhat cheesy) moment was when the four girls sang karaoke in the hotel bar, choosing "I Am Woman," and spreading female empowerment vibes throughout the entire place.
All in all, a fun, fashionable film about friendship that I will definitely see again. Could have been better, but wasn't too bad at all.
