unlike the mainstream press and fans of the series/film i wasn’t disappointed by this film. the first film was a big success and was well-received, this film is falling on its face a bit. it’s basically what i expected from this franchise – vapid and hollow. to me it’s the logical conclusion of a franchise that has always been about fairly straightforward observations and crappy, fickle fashion. this isn’t the exception for me, it’s the rule. the rest of the world seems to disagree – this is a horrible installment in an otherwise great franchise, is how the reviews i’ve heard are coming in.
the sex and the city world that this film portrays is one in which all women want to be fashion/money driven americans like carrie and crew. it’s also a world where everyone who is gay is funny and over-the-top. i think we’re regressing here.
in the end there is the usual drama and resolution which is supposed to make everything good again.Watched in theater
