Firstly, like many people, I was a huge fan of the original Sex and the City series. I have the box set and have watched it numerous times. I equally enjoyed the first movie and was therefore excited for the second movie.

What a huge disappointment. Fancy (and somewhat ridiculous) clothes do not make a movie.

The plot of the movie is basically poor Carrie Bradshaw, after finally getting married to Mr Big she is stuck in a rut. They have this fabulous apartment full of designer clothes and both have ridiculously well paid jobs. But boring old Mr Big wants a TV in the bedroom! And he doesn't want to attend movie premieres with vapid people! And he wants to stay in for dinner! So Carrie has a moan and then when a book reviewer calls her out on her bull crap, her and the ladies head of to Abu Dhabi. Queue lots of ignorance about Middle Eastern culture and some embarrassing scenes topped off with ridiculous clothes. Charlotte is afraid her hubby is cheating on her with the bra-less nanny, Miranda has quit her job because her boss doesn't like her and Samantha is the same old Samantha. Also, poor Charlotte is having a hideous time because as a full time Mum with a full time Nanny, she is finding it very difficult raising her two children in the Fifth Avenue apartment.

The film is basically offensive to anyone who watches it. They seem to have forgotten their audience and why the TV series was so popular. Yes viewers loved the fashion aspect of the show, but it was mainly the story of four women in a big city looking for love that captured the viewers attention. Carrie moaning about having to stay in for dinner whilst millions of people are struggling in the current world wide economy just angered me.

Needless to say, huge fan, loved the first film.

However, this film was wrong on so many levels, let me elaborate:

1. Characters: From most of the reviews I have read I don't think anyone has commented on the characters, and how little they resemble the characters from the TV series, both physically and persona wise.

Carrie: Did anyone notice how haggard and botoxed she looked? She barely resembles Carrie anymore, yes, I know shes older now but god I don't know if I would have rather there wasn't a movie than a movie with a character that I no longer recognised. Also, since when did Carrie become mean to her friends(Charlottle elevator scene)?! She was always the character that the viewer sympthasised with - this movie questions your loyalty to Carrie - I'm not sure I appreciated being made to feel this way. Also, I really could not identify with her problem, it was such a small trivial problem (Big not wanting to come out on the town every night) and I don't think I have ever watched a Sex and the City episode where I could not identify with the issue Carrie was dealing with in that episode.

Miranda: Miranda's character was probably the most perplexing. I'm sorry but did anyone notice how strangely upbeat and optimistic Miranda was in this movie? Where was the pessimistic and CYNICAL Miranda we all knew and loved? "I have my own personal air conditioning...abu dhabi doo" - I think everyone remembers that scene outside the airport - and every new experience in Abu Dhabi Miranda gets into a flurry of child like excitement.

Like many other reviewers on here, I loved the TV series and the first film. They were funny, observant and great entertainment. This film, however, is none of these. It is atrocious.

From the outset, it is buttock clenching stuff. The wedding between Anthony and Stanford is just awful with a cameo from Liza (with a zee) Minelli "singing". Awful stuff. It doesn't get any better.

The "girls" (I use this word advisedly) are all now a bit older and they look it. They are all far too thin and this makes them look drawn and haggard and for a franchise that is really all about looks and clothes, this is not good. They go on a jolly to the middle east where there are the usual cliches about burkhas, etc etc. For four supposed women of the world not to know about this mode of dress is highly unbelievable. Embarrassing really. Carrie and Big seem to be having a bit of spat about him staying in every night (well, he is nearly 60) and she's not happy so off she pops with the "girls" only to meet old love Aiden in a market. What are the chances, eh? Miranda quits her job (as you do on a whim) but can afford to go on holiday. Charlotte is having problems with her two children despite having a full time nanny in tow. She also does her baking in a vintage Valentino skirt (as you do). And as for Samantha, for a character who was funny, independent and sassy, she is now just a dirty old woman. Oh, and there's a scene where the four of them get up and do karaoke. Actually, I admit I fast forwarded this bit due to my own embarrassment for them.

This is a disappointment in the extreme. There is an extra DVD with stuff about the making of. Michael Patrick King (producer, etc) waxes lyrical as if he was making War and Peace. My only conclusion is that the four main characters did this for the money. It certainly was not the for the calibre of the storyline.

Avoid this rubbish at all costs.
