Sex and the City post

*long dramatic sigh*

(Excuse me while I get all girly on you...)

Let me just say I loved this movie. I missed these characters, their quirky commentary, and of course their shoes, clothes and purses. There were little annoyances with the character's actions and choices, sure, but I love their friendship with each other. A lot of shows portray women in competitive relations with each other rather than portraying the wonderful relationships women can develop. I love that these women stayed with each other through all the trials of the years.

I wanted to meet my girlfriends last weekend for cosmos and an opening night viewing, but our plans fell through so I didn't see it until yesterday. It was worth the wait though, and I may even drag husband down to see it again. (Poor thing will have to endure the estrogenfest, but don't feel too sorry for him. Although he'll complain a bit, he'll secretly enjoy it, especially the scene with Charlotte's catastrophe in Mexico. Omg, I'm cracking up just remembering the scene and Carrie's comment about it [edited for spoilers], "Sweetie....I think you're done this year." ;)

If you enjoyed the series, I highly recommend the movie. Enjoy!

I loved the movie too. I saw it in a full cinema and I think there were only 3 men in there! There was a collective gasp when Carrie got her closet :)

I can't wait to go and see it with my gorgeous friend Schmetterling. I want to dress up and everything, that would be soo cool. I am glad it is worth waiting for.

The problem I have is that I used to watch and enjoy SATC when it was on. The time was a bit inconvenient, and I forgot a few. So I got the videos. But once I had it on video, there was no longer any urgency - hence I have watched little of the later series (except for the section in Paris which I watched off-the-air).
So if I go and see this film on my own, will I be the only man there?

m&t, that closet was unbelievable! In my case it'd be mostly empty though. ;)

Hullaballoo, I dressed up in my sexy new jeans and retro-y pumps. Very fun. :) Enjoy!

Pierre, hmm, well there was one guy in our party and I believe he noticed 2-3 others in the you may not be the *only* man there. I think the first weekend was probably the worst and now girls will be dragging along husbands, etc.
There is a 'where we left off' video available online for each character. Can't remember where I saw it, but I'm sure google could find it.
Hope you go and enjoy!
