New York City, Manolo’s, sex and more sex...yes we're talking about “Sex and The City: The Movie,” which opens in theatres nationwide today. We’ve waited 4 years to find out if Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) will eventually walk down the isle with the man (Chris Noth) who put her through an emotional rollercoaster--for ten years.
The theme of the movie was LOVE. It was definitely a tear jerker for us girls who religiously watched the hit TV series hoping Carrie, Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) would find bliss in their much complicated love lives while the fashionable femmes continued to juggle jobs, and friendships in Man-hattan.
To our surprise, there were no deaths in the movie as Cynthia Nixon “accidentally” let slip, and we must say, the Jennifer Hudson cameo was over-hyped. The film felt like cliff notes for six seasons, but it filled the SATC void we’ve all felt for the past four years.
After 94 episodes and 6 years on HBO, seeing Carrie getting married in a designer couture gown to the Investment heartbreaker would be ideal. But then again, it’s SATC and if we’ve learned anything from the series, its that Carrie’s life is unpredictable. The movie was certainly entertaining, and to best describe it we leave you with a quote from Carrie Bradshaw:
“After years of living in the city I assumed that if my friends and I ever got our fairy tale ending that would be the end of the story. But real life-always has a twist.”
