So me and some gal pals went to see Sex and The City 2 on Saturday. We did the whole dressing up bit, I wore a black puffy dress with yellow, red and blue edging, some black leggings (sooo pleased that leggings are back in fashion again) and some rather fabulous red shoes, with a matching DKNY blingy red handbag. I wasn’t purposely channelling an SATC character this time, but the look was probably closer to Carrie, as she has the most eclectic taste of all the ladies.
Of course I’d been hearing some pretty bad reviews of the movie from film critics, but I knew that I’d love it no matter what. And I did.
In this film, Miranda was the fun one, a refreshing change from the norm. Charlotte was a beleaguered parent, trying to cope with two kids and a nanny, Carrie was analysing the years ahead with just her and Big, and Samantha was trying to herbally circumvent the onslaught of the menopause, with some rather hilarious results.
It was a fun romp with amazing clothes, fabulous shoes, and a glam setting. And the odd shot of Samantha getting down and dirty with some good looking bloke.
If you were a Sex And The City fan before, this movie will not disappoint, however if you’re a hater/film critic who’s idea of fun is watching films about the war in Iraq, or somebody who doesn’t enjoy the more frivolous things in life, like shopping for clothes and shoes, this movie will not be your cup of tea, so do us all a favour, and avoid it like the plague.
I loved every minute of it, and Liza Minnelli’s cameo appearance as her botoxed-to -within-an-inch-of-her-life self was priceless.
What did you guys think of the movie?
