Sex and the City: The Movie
15 June 2010
Excerpt: It’s been just over a decade since “Sex and the City” first appeared on HBO and my how time flies. I can vividly remember seeing a poster for it in a New York City subway. I was heading back home to Connecticut at the time and quickly dismissed the image of Sarah Jessica Parker arched over the then different New York skyline as a “chick show.” As time has shown, I was mostly right, but I do remember receiving the first season on DVD way back in 2000.
Summary: I know I should hate Sex in the City; it's a chick flick on haute steroids. However I did enjoy it, almost as much as watching the series itself. While this movie is about shoes, clothes, apartments and penthouses in New York City, it is also about friends, love, relationships, disappointment, forgiveness, and redemption. This movie is not only witty and funny, but it's dead serious at points, almost painfully emotional at others.
Conclusion: 'Sex and the City' is a real surprise, offering a glimpse into the psyches of that rarity of modern Hollywood cinema -- women over 40 who actually have sex! Having never seen the show before seeing the movie, I easily slid right into the material and was entertained throughout by this wonderfully insightful and real romantic comedy. This Blu-ray is likewise very strong, with great video and audio, and solid (if not exceptional) supplements.
Excerpt: Being a young woman living in New York City, I often feel required to have an opinion on Sex and the City . Do I love it? Is it a guilty pleasure? Do I recognize that it's really just a giant pit of consumerist greed? After seeing the Sex and the City movie, the big, shiny sparkler on top of the decadent cake that was the series, the answer to all of those questions is: Yes. Can I have seconds?
Excerpt: Anyone who has an opinion about Sex And The City , positive or negative, is unlikely to be swayed in a different direction by the TV series' big-screen adaptation. Those who approach it as a mere curiosity may be charmed by what's essentially a you-go-girl romantic comedy with a high-octane wardrobe and a few explicit sex scenes, but they're unlikely to convert to the cult of Carrie Bradshaw.
Excerpt: If the idea of watching 4 back-to-back episodes of "Sex and the City" sounds alluring, then you will love this. The length might be epic, but the pace is aligned with the TV show, maintaining all the fun, fashion and sex. We love spending time with these characters as they face some of the tougher challenges in life like marriage and divorce, a step above the usual frivolous banter of the series.
Summary: Sex and the City: The Movie is het 2½ uur durende speelfilm vervolg op de zes seizoenen van de gelijknamige populaire TV serie. De vier hartsvriendinnen uit Manhattan, New York zijn ieder hun eigen weg gegaan, maar zien elkaar nog regelmatig. Als Carrie aankondigt te gaan trouwen met Mr. Big komen de vriendinnen bij elkaar voor de voorbereidingen. Maar de twijfel slaat toe bij Mr. Big als hij om zich heen de relaties van getrouwde stellen stuk ziet gaan.
Excerpt: ”The two L:s; labels and love”, varumärken och kärlek. Vi får programförklaringen direkt, och fyra resuméer som fastställer statusen för Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte och Samantha (som nu är runt 40, Samantha till och med 50, mycket sympatiskt, tack för att vi slapp en föryngringsprocess).
