Your watch will tell you that a shade less than two and a half hours have elapsed, but you may be shocked at just how much older you feel when the whole thing is over. The wedding, the characters frequently remark, with the mixture of insouciant mockery and cosmopolitan self-congratulation that seems to have become the hallmark of this weary franchise, is a gay one. The number starts out campy, affectionate and self-aware, but at some point turns desperate, grating and a little sad. Happy endings, once achieved, cannot be undone. Not that everything is perfect. Samantha frets about the onset of menopause, and doses herself with hormones and lotions.
Sex and the City, the movie: Review
Sex and the City () - Sex and the City () - User Reviews - IMDb
May 30, Chick flicks are often more fascinating than guy films, at least to this guy, because they offer a window into a world that is usually kept out of the movies. But there are windows and then there are windows. I realize that gaudy fantasy is essential to this franchise, but why does the fantasy have to be so stunted? Things begin semipromisingly, as the ladies — bestselling author Carrie Sarah Jessica Parker , mother-of-two Charlotte Kristin Davis , workaholic lawyer Miranda Cynthia Nixon , and man-eater Samantha Kim Cattrall — attend a gay wedding featuring Liza Minnelli as headliner. This sequence is so purposefully over the top in displaying its camp credentials that it functions as a winking piece of self-satire.
