Here we go…the most over-exposed movie of our time….and it’s finally out! Sex and the City. Even though I allowed the entire plot to be ruined for me, I just had to be there opening day to see my long lost friends. That’s as in Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. No big surprise, the movie made $55.7 million in the U.S. this weekend.
I am not going to ruin it for the 25 women who have not seen it yet, however, here is my take…
I have to admit I was riveted, mostly by the clothes, not the plot. However, as my friend put it, "I still didn’t want it to end." I remember when the series was airing always wanting more. A half hour never seemed enough. Well, 2 hours and 15 minutes is more than enough for one sitting. Carrie’s narration and how it played into her articles set the direction for each episode of the series. It wasn’t really there in the movie. There also wasn’t much sex, but a lot on love and designer clothes. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I got to test my knowledge of designer clothes and was pretty dead on about most! Was the movie watered down? Yes. Did it feel like one old episode drawn out? Yes. Am I anxious for a sequel? You betcha! I don’t care. I don’t want to wait another four years to find out what’s happened to my girls!
