I saw Sex and the City 2 this past weekend with a gal pal, which is the only way to see it. And, contrary to many male reviews, the world as we know it did not come to an end.
If your expectations are not much more than watching an extended episode of the show, you won't be disappointed. The set piece of the gay wedding, complete with Liza Minelli singing and dancing to Beyonce's Single Ladies made it worth it.
The plot was not the most gripping, and at well over two hours, it was a bit bloated. There was plenty of eye candy for the ladies and the gay audience, but I can see why most men would find nothing to watch in the movie. But, I do take exception to the virulent reviews of the film. How many mindless explosion after car chase scene movies have I sat through -- aimed at every inner thirteen year old boy? Gee, the world didn't come to an end after GI Joe or Transformers 2. Women should be allowed their own mindless popcorn flicks.
I'd only give it 2 stars, but it was still a fun film to see with girlfriends, and there's not much out right now that fits that bill. Yes, you could wait to rent, but watch it with friends!
