Sex and the City 2

Last night, I convinced (really they hardly needed it) to see Sex and the City 2 at midnight so we could be some of the first people to either love or hate it. Without seeing it, I don't know how I could hate it. I absolutely loved the series and I was really happy with the first movie. Remember when I met my now in real life friend Alexaand we graced the TV with our take on the movie?

Michael Patrick King - I could've been done at the first movie. It was perfectly complete for me. Plus, I have the style book to remember individual scenes from that the BF kindly bought me for a Valentine's Day.

So, I was a bit skeptical going into this movie. I mean, hello, they are riding on camels in the middle of desert?! Really? You needed to go all the way to the Middle East for the second movie?

So, what is my take?

Michael Patrick King and SJP should've stopped while they were ahead. The whole movie felt off to me. Even as I think back, I'm not exactly sure there was a storyline for any of the characters except for Charlotte and a little for Carrie. Samantha was her typical outrageous self, Miranda quits her job and then most of the movie takes place in Abu Dhabi. It was beautiful scenery and lots of jeweled-tone clothes, but I'm still scratching my head thinking, "Really? That was it."

During a few times, I leaned over to my friend and said, "This is boring. Really? They brought the characters back to life for this?"

With all that said, I will still need to buy the movie to complete my Sex and the City set.

Yeah, I actually took the time to read Jezebel's Live Blogging of SATC2, and it was incredibly dumb (as I expected).

Really?! All the cliches and lame-ness? So glad I didn't get dressed up for all that. :)

I think I'll still have a martini though.

I'm sorry what? Miranda quits her job? Now they've really gone off the deep end.

I haven't seen it but probably will still see it and buy it considering I own all the seasons and the first movie, which is just fueling the fire I guess.

Oh well, maybe I'll down a few cosmos before going.

I'm not as excited to see the second one as I was to see the first, but I am still going to see it. I bought the style book too and loved it. I think what bothers me about this one is that they are not in NY, um isn't it called Sex and the CITY. Not Sex and the desert.

I love that you guys went to the midnight show. So cute. I'm still planning on seeing it (mostly for fashion porn) but I want to go to morning matinee so it's super cheap

You are telling me you went to see $10 million worth of clothes, and it wasn't interesting? I don't believe it...

I totally agree. So awful. And really- the wardrobes were $10M??! I thought at least half of them looked ridiculous. And that ending- oh you cheated on me, but here's a huge diamond ring...whaaat?!

P.S. Love your blog! I'm in my first year of "living in sin" - so far, so good!
