Sex And The City Movie Review October 2, 2008

I saw Sex and The City over the summer and loved it, but procrastinated too much and wasn’t able to write a review about the movie. But since the DVD is out, I’m ready to share my love of the four fabulous ladies, Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda, and the movie that brought the phenomena to the big screen. If you recall, I wrote about watching the trailer back in December, which gave me a few assumptions: 1) Steve cheats on Miranda, 2) Carrie and Big have one of their “off again” moments and 3) Samantha goes back to her old ways. Well, watching the movie, I was right. It played out exactly the way I thought it did, but I loved it. Seeing their lives now was great, although later in the movie Miranda and Carrie end up with some problems with their mates.

 I was happy that Charlotte had no problems throughout, her battle with trying to get pregnant and trying to adopt a baby was heartbreaking. She wanted to be a mother so badly, it was awful how she was rejected during the end of the series, she deserved to get everything she ever wanted.

Miranda was still Miranda, serious, tough love, and all business. It didn’t surprise me that she would have problems with her marriage, she is a strong willed woman, but Steve is her soul mate. Although they have their problems, he is the only one who is able to put up with her personality, breakdown her walls and make her be less serious.

Samantha moved to Los Angeles to be manage Smith as his career took off. Though it didn’t seem like she moved across the country at all, she was in practically every scene with her best gal pals. And of course she still the same Samantha, wanting sex all day everyday if she can, but she seems to be at a drought (or her version of it LOL). She finds it hard to satisfy her own sexual needs and be faithful, and later she finds a way to do so, a way that makes her feel fulfilled again.

Carrie’s reluctance towards John James Preston, a.k.a. Mr. Big seemed tolerable throughout the series, but in the movie, it was just uncalled for. The man was trying to connect with her and she sensed the night before of their wedding, that he was getting cold feet but she didn’t listen to her gut. She should of kept it simple like she was planning to but she was bitten by the wedding bug and went overboard. She and Big have that “on again, off again” relationship that seems to be increase their passion when they make-up, an fizzle out slowly when they break-up. Their history of being together only shows that they are truly meant to be, despite their sporadic problems.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie. I missed Sex and the City and was anticipating to see how Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha turned out after the series finale. I give 4 out of 5 stars.
