Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), successful author and everyone’s favorite fashion icon-next-door, is back, her famously sardonic wit intact and sharper than ever, as she continues to narrate her own story about sex, love and the fashion-obsessed single woman in New York City. Sex and the City finds Carrie, Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) four years after the hit HBO series ended, as our favorite femmes fashionables continue to juggle jobs, friendships and relationships while they start to navigate motherhood, marriage and Manhattan real estate… some of them may even – brace yourself – brave other boroughs outside Manhattan.
Over four years have passed since you’ve last laid eyes on the promiscuous foursome. They’ve all moved in different directions in life, but a marriage will bring them back together one last time.
Wedding bells are in the air when “BIG” (Chris Noth), finally proposes to Carrie Bradshaw (Parker). She knows that an event this long in the making will require the help of her three best friends. Samantha (Cattrall) is now a big shot Hollywood agent. Miranda Hobbes (Nixon) is just an unhappily married middle aged train wreck. And Charlotte York (Davis) just might be getting a heavy surprise of her own. The movie played out just like an extended version of the TV series. The run time is 2 hours and 25 minutes, so it is like sitting down for a 5 episode marathon. If you are a fan of the show I don’t think you will be disappointed.
For not playing the characters for four years, that the women did a hell of a job picking up where they left off. It had just the right amount of humor and drama, that they offset each other nicely. I would recommend making yourself a tall drink and finding out why it’s not a good idea to Poughkeepsie in your pants.
The Blu-ray release includes some great special features such as: additional scenes, a commentary with Director Michael Patrick King, numberous featurettes, and 2 exlcusive interactive features: Sex and the City: The City and Dish It.
I must say if you never watched the show the movie can be skipped. It’s a must watch however for die hard fans of the eight year long series of friendship, laughs, and of course sex, and the city.
