Movie Review: SATC

So I finally got around to seeing the Sex and the City movie, and with everyone's busy schedules the showing last night at 9:15pm worked the best for our little group (which included 2 guys). I watched the series on HBO, own the DVDs, but wouldn't consider myself a "die-hard" fan. I liked the TV series for it's openness and clever writing, and surprisingly I liked the movie. I laughed a lot and liked the story (but do have issues with the ending). I did find the excessive brand-name dropping to be completely obnoxious though. A guy who went did classify it as a major "chick flick" with too much girly stuff (hair, make-up, fashion) and not enough story line to hold his interest. He also felt it was too long (it is 2.5 hours). Overall I recommend seeing the movie, but it doesn't have to be on the big screen.

I thought it was pretty good. The name-dropping was a little annoying, but I felt like the show name-dropped a lot as well. What did you dislike about the ending?

I guess I have never been a Big fan. I was disappointed that the ceremony at the end wasn't more of a compromise. It seemed to be more of what Big wanted and less of Carrie's wishes. I did like that everyone was happy though!
