Product Description

The fun, the fashion, the friendship: Sex and the City 2 brings it all back and more as Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) come together to take another bite out of The Big Apple – and beyond – in a hilarious sequel. What happens after you say “I do?” Life is everything the ladies ever wished it would be, but it wouldn’t be Sex in the City if life didn’t hold a few more surprises. After all, sometimes you just have to get away with the girls.

The four glitziest ladies ever to hit Manhattan as a single force–Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte–are back, fabulous as ever, in Sex and the City 2. They may be older, and even a little wiser, but the pulls of love, lust, careers, and a pair of well-turned stilettos are still the focus of this Fab Four. As the women gamely face the prospect of aging–children, menopause, glass ceilings, and, in Carrie’s opinion a fate worse than death–domesticity–they still manage to sparkle with the banter and great outfits that made the HBO series and the first film such hits. Sex and the City 2 opens with Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) at the wedding of two of the foursome’s favorite gay male friends, Stanford (Willie Garson) and Anthony (Mario Cantone). The wedding itself pulls out all the stops–in the true spirit of Sex and the City–and is one of the highlights of the film. From the no-holds-barred décor, including live swans, to the gay men’s chorus singing show tunes while the guests arrive, the event is on the far side of over the top. As the guests settle into their seats, Miranda whispers, “Could this wedding be any gayer?” and as if on command, out comes Liza Minnelli, playing herself, to officiate. (Minnelli’s performance is unexpectedly splendid, and her “wedding song” will wow all her fans–gay, straight, married, single.) Yet beneath the luscious glamour and the really bad hats (oh, Carrie, you should have resisted that harlequin feathered crown), the heroines are struggling with the not-so-glamorous realities of their lives. Charlotte and Harry (the always delightful and dependable Evan Handler) have two demanding young daughters–and a nanny from Ireland whose braless voluptuousness puts new meaning in the phrase “Irish spring,” and who may be threatening their marriage. Miranda, ever the focused career gal, is getting nowhere fast at her law firm. And Carrie, now married to Mr. Big (Chris Noth), is chafing at the cozy staying-in and lying-low that she thinks spell death to romance. (It should be noted that vixen Samantha is still game for walking on the wild side. At the wedding she meets a handsome straight guy and asks him what he does for a living. “I lay concrete,” he says. Samantha: “That sounds promising.”) And for once there are no easy, glib answers to the real-life problem of the four stars, and Sex and the City 2 lets the characters actually grow up, at least a little. Which doesn’t mean their fashions aren’t fabulous. The film is also chock-a-block with great cameos, including Miley Cyrus, Project Runway’s Tim Gunn, and Penélope Cruz. And longtime fans of the TV series will be happy to hear that Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis), Samantha’s onetime flame, and Aidan (John Corbett), who once stole Carrie’s heart, also make appearances. Sex and the City 2 is frothier than a shaken bottle of Champagne, and goes down as smoothly as a couple of appletinis. So fans, drink up! —A.T. Hurley

“Loved SATC2!” 2010-10-21
By Sarah Shopper
I really loved this movie and the first one as well as the series. I totally recommend this movie to any and all SATC fans! I am also giving this a 5 star rating to offset the negative reviews. I don’t feel the need to take every little piece of the movie apart and give it a poor review because it was a great addition to watching the SATC girls lives continue to unfold and go along with them on the ride of fun, drama, and adventure!

“Fun with a little meaning on the side…” 2010-10-19
By D. Hinson (atlanta, ga usa)
I honestly cannot understand the drubbing this film got from some reviewers when it was released. SATC has always been primarily just a fun, guilty pleasure to me. Sure, there have been meaningful subplots to all the stories, but it is first and foremost a comedy. They pulled out all the stops for the opening wedding scene in this one, and it was a delight. Yes, it was a little cringe-worthy having Liza play a gay wedding, but c’mon, what movie starts with a big ‘ol gay valentine to the audience like this?! The audience in the theater at the sneak preview that I attended was, by and large, comprised of exquisitely dressed women. I felt like I was tagging along for the party, and was so happy to hear all of the ladies exploding with laughter when Minnelli came out and did “Single Ladies.” It set the tone for a great time at the movies…

As fluffy as the installments in the series and these two movies can be, there is always a lot of heart in each production. The storyline about how couples define their relationships really spoke to me. I’ve had a long-distance relationship for 13 years–due to circumstances, and am too well aware of how many people view my situation when I describe it. The equivalent of “How do you hold up?” greets nearly every conversation I have with people who have more traditional relationships. It was refreshing to see the SATC girls take on what defines a relationship–the two people having it!!

Let’s hope there will be a third installment of the movie series because SATC has always been, at its core, about bringing people together for fashion, laughter, and irreverence, with a side of wistfulness. I think maybe some people have begun to expect too much from our girls…let’s not try and make the series something that it never was!!

“So So:” 2010-10-18
By David J. Jordan Jr. (usa)
I watched this movie on a flight coming back from Rome in September, and it became apparent to me that Kim Cattrall’s character Samantha is the funniest!!! Kim has more charisma than the rest of the girls put together!!! While SJP was enjoyable in the TV version, she looks stiff and her acting is pretty boring, no emotion at all…. While I did laugh at a few spots, it is a pretty forgettable movie. FYI, watch this movie while your drinking!!!

“SATC2 falls flat and that’s not the cleavage” 2010-10-18
By Kevin (Los Angeles, CA)
I am not the person to review this movie. Perhaps you will enjoy a review from someone who disqualifies himself at the outset, doesn’t much like most of the characters and is bored by their bubble-brained conversations. I also know nothing about world-famous designers. The women are older and no more wiser.

The characters of “Sex and the City 2” are flyweight bubbleheads living in a world which rarely requires three sentences in a row. Their defining quality is consuming things. They gobble food, fashion, houses, husbands, children, vitamins and freebies. They must plan their wardrobes on the phone, so often do they appear in different basic colors, like the plugs you pound into a Playskool workbench.

As we return to the trivialities of their lives for a sequel, marriage is the issue. The institution is affirmed in an opening sequence at a gay wedding in Connecticut that looks like a Fred Astaire production number gone horribly over budget. There’s a 16-man chorus in white formal wear, a pond with swans, and Liza Minnelli to perform the ceremony. Her religious or legal qualifications are unexplained. After the ceremony, she changes to a Vegas lounge outfit and is joined by two lookalike backups for a song and dance routine possibly frowned upon in some denominations.

Then it’s back to the humdrum married life of our gal Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and the loathsome Mr. Big (Chris Noth). Mr. Big speaks loudly enough to be heard mostly by himself, his most appreciative audience. And he never wants to leave the house at night, preferring to watch classic black-and-white movies on TV. This leads to a marital crisis. Carrie thinks they should talk more. But Carrie, Mr. Big has nothing to say. At least he’s provided you with a Manhattan apartment that looks like an Architectural Digest wet dream.

Brief updates. Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) is a high-powered lawyer who is dissed by her male chauvinist pig boss. Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) is still a sexaholic slut. Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) has the two little girls she thought she wanted, but now discovers that they actually expect to be raised. Mothers, if you are reading, run this through your head. One little girl dips her hands in strawberry topping and plants two big handprints on your butt. You are on the cell to a girlfriend. How do you report this? You moan and wail out: “My vintage Valentino!” Any mother who wears her vintage Valentino while making muffin topping with her kids should be hauled up before the Department of Children and Family Services.

All of this is pretty thin gruel. The movie shows enterprise, and flies the entire cast away to the emirate of Abu Dhabi, where the girls are given a $22,000-a-night suite and matching Maybachs and butlers, courtesy of a sheik who wants to have a meeting with Samantha and talk about publicity for his hotel.

This sequence is an exercise in obscenely conspicuous consumption, in which the girls appear in so many different outfits they must have been followed to the Middle East by a luggage plane. I don’t know a whole lot about fashion, but I know something about taste, and these women spend much of the movie dressed in tacky, vulgar clothing. Carrie and Samantha also display the maximum possible boobage, oblivious to Arab ideas about women’s modesty. There’s more cleavage in this film than at a pro wrestler’s wedding.

And crotches, have we got crotches for you. Big close-ups of the girls themselves, and some of the bulgers they meet. And they meet some. They meet the Australian world cup team, for example, which seems to have left its cups at home. And then there’s the intriguing stranger Samantha meets at the hotel, whose zipper-straining arousal evokes the fury of an offended Arab guest and his wife.

Samantha is arrested for kissing on the beach, and there’s an uncomfortable scene in which the girls are menaced by outraged men in a public market, where all they’ve done is dress in a way more appropriate for a sales reception at Victoria’s Secret. They’re rescued by Arab women so well covered only their eyes are visible, and in private these women reveal that underneath the burkas they’re wearing Dior gowns and so forth. Must get hot.

The movie’s visual style is arthritic. The sitcom dialogue is shown by dutifully cutting back and forth to whoever is speaking. A sample of Carrie’s realistic dialogue in a marital argument: “You knew when I married you I was more Coco Chanel than coq au vin.” Carrie also narrates the film, providing useful guidelines for those challenged by its intricacies. Sample: “Later that day, Big and I arrived home.”

I am obliged to report that this film will no doubt be deliriously enjoyed by its fans, for the reasons described above. The sequel to the better first film and HBO show heads down the road to corniness, but not terribly bad if you’re into that sort of thing. Rent it before you make the decision to buy it without seeing it.
