Sex and the CIty 2 Review
This movie is not what you have been reading in the other reviews. Other reviews are ripping this movie to shreds but I disagree. I thought it was entertaining and fun. It was as good as the first movie. Don't get me wrong, it isn't Oscar worthy but it is definitely worth seeing if you are a Sex and the City fan. If you aren't a fan and aren't familiar with the characters, you will still be entertained but you will not always understand what is going on since you don't have a history to work with. If you are a Sex in the City virgin, you definitly won't get the wedding at the beginning. Anyway, the fashion, which has gotten a lot of attention, is colorful but a little to 80's for me. Having lived through that fashion faux pas, I really don't need to go back there again. Old isn't always new again ladies! I am sure I won't be seeing the red sea urchin dress that Samantha (Kim Cantrall) was wearing on anyone else. I did enjoy the story line and the trouble Samantha gets herself into. The scenery was beautiful too! The Middle East is a gorgeous part of the world and filled the big screen with it's warm hues. The ladies looked gorgeous in the scarves and colors chosen for their Middle Eastern scenes. Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Big (Chris Noth) continue to be a great couple and continue to reinvent the rules of marriage. I am all about reinventing marriage ; ) Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) takes a big step int he right direction in this film and it is good to see! She also has aged better and looks the best out of all of our sexy friends. After years of watching her look frumpy on the TV show, she has finally come into her own and looks amazingly HOT! Speaking of HOT, Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis) and Aidan (John Corbett) make an all too brief appearance. This movie has great flow to the story and you forget about time entirely. Strap on your Manolo Blahniks and go to the movies!
