Two years later, Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte gamely face the prospects of aging – children, menopause, glass ceilings, and, in Carrie’s opinion, a fate worse than death: domesticity – and travel together to Abu Dhabi.

Can say this is where I draw the line. The first film was sweet and genial, but this is just painfully overdone, shallow, and very, very offensive to some cultures. My one question with these movies; why the hell are they so long?
Wow, ugly American tourist much? The early seasons were fun but this franchise needed to die. Romantic fantasy has bled into garish white privilege. Pitting these infantile "feminists" against Muslims is a self-defeating (and unnecessary) detour -- Islamic feminism doesn't need your help, Michael Patrick King. I'm going to pretend these movies never happened.
I can't deny this movie is very entertaining. I love the show I watch it completely like twice a year. This movie however is so fucking awful, like its so clearly trying to promote Abu Dhabi and all the lines are so corny and cringey. Also the part where they sneak around wearing the burqas is just so lame...
This movie was abysmal on a level that I haven't experienced in a very long time. That being said, I watched it 3 times in a row. Also, I couldn't stop staring at Sarah Jessica Parker. I love that face of hers. Stunning.
Sex and the City is my guilty pleasure. It has no existential meaning, nothing deep about it. It's just all about the things that you wanna do and never really get to so you project all those superifical wants onto four fabulous women and watch them deal with the shit that would've been catastrophic if all that shit happened to you in real life.
Anyone catch the sly comment on the awards show about this film-flammery? Funny stuff and so true. They should have stopped with the series, maybe gotten by with the first film, but this one was just a mess. I even heard from others who are "fans" who were thoroughly disappointed. We can only pray they don't make #3.
