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.
