The silver-screen version of SEX AND THE CITY is sure to inspire lust, though it may not be after its sexy male cast. Instead, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and her friends wear enviable fashions from the industry's biggest names such as Zac Posen, Louis Vuitton, and, of course, Manolo Blahnik, and their gorgeous clothes--and accessories--threaten to steal the show. But for fans of the series' wit, drama, and sex, there's plenty to like in this romantic comedy filled with familiar characters. Though four years have passed since the events of the series, not much has changed as the film begins: Carrie and Mr. Big (Chris Noth) are happy as they search for an apartment, Charlotte (Kristin Davis) is blissful with her husband (Evan Handler) and adopted daughter, Samantha (Kim Cattrall) is still with actor Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis), and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) is trying to balance life as a mother, wife, and lawyer as she lives in Brooklyn with Steve (David Eigenberg). But Carrie and Big's apartment hunt leads them down the road to marriage, and the destination may not be quite everything Carrie hoped for. Though the film runs nearly two and a half hours, it flies by the way a marathon of episodes would for the devoted. Even minor characters from the show--Vogue editor Enid Frick (Candice Bergen), beloved Carrie pal Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson), and hyper wedding planner Anthony Marentino (Mario Canton)--make fan-pleasing appearances. SEX AND THE CITY is full of glitz, glamour, and giggles, but be sure to have a tissue nearby. These characters have become like friends to fans, and it's tough not to tear up when things don't go exactly as they'd hoped.

I pre-ordered this 2 disc edition from Zavvi (sorry Amazon) and got it three days before release, which is how I'm reviewing it now, after finally getting round to watching it. I definately noticed the extra bits in the film, but obvoiusly they're nothing life changing, just cut out to make the film a shorter 2 and a half hours - yes, it's mammoth - but yeah, the extra bits don't make a real difference, the main scene added was a hallowe'en bit with Lily in, which was sweet, and a bit longer trying on Carrie's clothes from her wardrobe earlier in the film. So in my opinion, they don't add much, but the extra disc with interviews and on-set footage is good, and there's a nice long bit with Pat Field and the girls talking about the wardrobe, amongst other things, and there's directors commentary, but I haven't faced that as of yet, I've spent a whole afternoon playing around with the discs and stuff though, so it'll keep you amused for quite a while.
There's no need to go on and on about the actual film, I can't understand why any Sex and the City fan wouldn't like it but there has been mixed reviews I suppose. I admit there's a few bits that were less than perfect but it's a 2 and a half hour film, it can't all be breath taking! Definately a must for any fan - or even SATC virgins!Read more ›
I got into Sex and the City quite late on, half way through the sixth and final season in fact. As a single, straight man, then in my early 20s, I spent years dismissing the show as just a chic program...until I actually gave it a chance. I have seen every episode of the series at least three times and love the great characters and the intelligent and witty stories; they comprise hours of fabulous fun.
Sex and the City the show is also an extreme rarity: An American show that knew when to end and ended in style. The final episode is one of the finest episodes ever made of any drama, sitcom (or whatever other classification you give it) and culminated in a perfect ending. The final scene with a final look at the four women and their relationships was pure gold. It doesn't matter what happened next because when the show ended, all four characters were in a good place.
So it was that a movie picked up all the tied up ends and continues stories that, from an entertaining and narrative point of view, had already ended. What was more, they were all quite depressing, predictable and far-fetched:
Miranda, the hard faced cow of the show finally softens enough to let a man near her with the feisty and rough diamond Steve. Steve puts up with all manner of behaviour from Miranda and stays loyal despite how badly she treats him. Yet in the film, in a bizarre twist, he cheats on her and she leaves him. This is both implausible and depressing.
Samantha is the sex beast of the show, ploughing through men and eating them alive.Read more ›
