Sex and the City 2: A Belated and Super Efficient Review!

Dreaming of the Big City

Oh boy I miss New York.

Even moreso after seeing the new Sex and the City film tonight. You will find some far more interesting reviews than I can muster the will to write at present from Rachel Hills and Girl With A Satchel respectively, but for now, in what might just constitute the laziest most efficient review thus far of this film, let me offer the following:

A rambly fashion parade with the odd glimpse of witty dialogue.

My feminist sensibilities were not really offended as such (I’d braced myself for this, so perhaps my defenses just worked), more like they were numbed. The real surprise to me was the presence of something I’ve never before – as an ardent fan of the TV series – felt in association with SATC – SHEER UNADULTERATED BOREDOM.

There you have it. The Comic Mummy has spoken.

Have you guys seen it? Thoughts?

PS – In happier NYC related news, I may have the chance to get there in the not-too-distant future: AGGGHHHH!!!!! But more on that as it emerges…

    wasn’t is just so dull? it wasn’t even engaging or clever enough for me to feel like feminism had been threatened or races had been maligned. and PS – where the hell was the eponymous ‘city’. ‘no sex and the sand dunes’. PPS – do you think that was actually an animatronic robot of Liza??

    Totally, the “city” was always one of my fave parts! I was gutted! It just felt like a really long fashion parade slash music clip. And not a good one at that.

    Haha, I believe you are right, perhaps they put the budget into creating her, rather than the screenplay.

    🙂
