Sex and the City 2

What a load of old tarts!

Lover: Taken from IMDB
"I can't believe the terrible reviews!! This was exactly what SATC is supposed to be - fun and funny, and oh so girlie! It totally captured the spirit of the beloved show and characters. If you were a fan of the show, how can you not love this movie!? SATC1 movie, on the other hand, was kind of depressing. This movie was a riot! I LOVED it!! It was just what the fans ordered!!! Hot men, cool fashion, glitz, exotic location, true friends and Aidan! So great to see Aidan and the chemistry between him and Carrie. Everyone in this movie looked AMAZING - All those hot men, and all the gorgeous ladies. The gay wedding was hilarious. Can't wait for SATC3!"

wow, like i guees you kinda liked it huh!?

Hater: Taken from IMDB
"As a longtime fan of the series I was seriously shocked and appalled that the 4 women that were initially portrayed as intelligent, fun, sexy New Yorkers are shown here as self-obsessed, over- sexed idiots that are not able to travel anywhere without offending the locals and looking ridiculous. The plot of the movie is non-existent. It all looks like a really long compilation of advertorials with not much connection between the scenes. And I am not speaking about the horrible inappropriate styling and the so-old looking women - it would be fine, if they at least were styled and made up properly: Carrie has this weird tan, looks about 10 years older than she actually is and has none of the coolness that made her so likable. Charlotte is losing it and in spite of all the makeup, looks tired and has totally lost her perky personality. Not only Samantha also looks much older than she is thanks to the terrible makeup, but her behavior is erratic and really not consistent with what has been shown in the series. The only one who was more or less OK was Miranda. And don't get me started on the Abu Dhabi stint - the Middle-Eastern country is ridiculed, wrongly portrayed and I frankly think that it is shown in a racist manner. It's a shame, really, that they have taken a social phenomenon and turned it into a shameful mess. I will choose to ignore this movie, pretend I never saw it and keep on watching the series."

Now thats more like it!

What i thought:
I should get it out there now, i quite enjoyed the series. Despite it being aimed squarely at our better half's, it was still funny! It had nothing to do with the conversations ranging from all manner of girly problems, the situations were funny and the chemistry between the leading ladies is infectious.

However, i can safely say Sex and the City should now be put to bed, in fact it should have after the last film. My wife agrees and she was an avid SATC fan. This poor sequel only has a couple of good points and that's the odd giggle you get from moments that felt like the series; mainly happening around the breakfast/lunch/dinner table the ladies are talking at. Apart from that it was a self indulgent mess of over camp jokes, product placement and a completely awful mis-aimed look at life in the Middle East!

That's right life in the middle east, in Sex and the City! even if you've been living in a cave for the last century you'll still feel that it's all wrong from the moment the ladies get on the plane to go!

Just awful and a real stab to the heart of what was a genuinely lovely series about women just, well living and having lots of sex.
