Did Sex & the City Suck?  SATC2 Vs. SATC Original

If you’re a woman, chances are you saw Sex and the City 2 this past weekend. But the big question is: Did you love it or hate it?

The second film has drawn a ton of criticism, which has almost overshadowed the film itself. It ended up at #3 at the box office with $37 million. It got beat out by Prince of Persia ($37.8 million), and Shrek Forever After ($55.7 million).

But enough about the numbers—was it good or not? If you ask Hollyscoop, we say yes! SATC is about female relationships, life changes, hardship, and fabulous clothes! Did we get all of that in SATC2? Yes!

That being said, it’s understandable that the sequel got so many bad reviews. The expectation that comes along with the franchise is massive, and many viewers likely went into the theater knowing they wouldn’t like it as much as the first movie, or as much as the series for that matter!

The first SATC movie was thrilling to everyone, not only because it marked the return of every woman’s favorite show, but we were finally getting the satisfaction of seeing Carrie and Big make things official.

This time around, the four women’s lives are all in limbo. Miranda hates her job, Samantha is trying to fight off menopause, Carrie and Big are in a rut, and Charlotte’s kids are driving her nuts. While it may not be as exciting as the first film’s storyline, it’s a reality every woman faces.

So was the sequel just a little too much reality and not enough fantasy for you? One thing we can probably all agree on—the clothes are still fabulous! Tell us what you think: Did SATC2 suck?
