Sex and the City: The Movie
28 January 2012
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.
Conclusion: Like Dreamgirls, this movie was a pleasure to review. For me on a personal basis there was a lot here I could relate to. I lived in New York City for most of my life, so I understand the apartment/penthouse search. Being somewhat of a clothes horse myself, I understood the love of fashion and clothes. Having two best friends from childhood, I understood the bonds of friendship. Who does not understand disappointment of being let down by another person?
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: After a glitzy opening sequence with a hip hopped-up title tune, Sex and the City takes its time giving us a resume of the four lead characters' lives, a refresher for fans of the TV series, which ended in 2004, or an introduction to those who've never seen it before, should any such people exist.
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.
Conclusion: If you are immune to the charms of Carrie and co., this will do little to convert you. Still, it has more than enough sass, style and sentiment to keep the faithful satisfied. Add a star if you’re a fan.
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.
