Admit it. You're excited!


This trailer leaves much to the imagination. Oh, the staples are all there: shot of Carrie's closet, shot of Big in limo, shot of Samantha exchanging looks with young chap in cougar-like fashion. And then - cut to camels and the desert?

The girls are headed to Iraq!

.....or Dubai, but that's a wild guess. However, a few things are certain. Miranda's hair and make-up get better every day. Charlotte likes to make cupcakes. Head wraps are IN.

These, friends, are facts. Facts we can trust.

Opens in Austin (and everywhere) May 2010.

Ugh, I am SO boycotting this movie. SJP has gone too far.

SO looking forward to this. Was wary of the first, but ended up LOVING it.

I'm excited! I saw the first one for free, randomly; a bunch of women had dressed up as the SATC characters and were giving away tickets as a promotion for their bar...anywho, hope you had a great Christmas!

But the question is, Laura: Too far with *what?* If we're talking fashion, I would have raised the SJP white flag myself somewhere around Season 2 or thereabouts, in particular over the fanny pack / neon block-painted jumpsuit ensemble.

But maybe you aren't talking about fashion.

(Also: I just mosied over to your blog, and love it. Just added you to the old blogroll if that's cool with you).

PinkSunDrops - Attagirl! I feel like with the ST&C flicks, you have to adopt the same mindset you do with Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. Is there really a Hogwarts? No. A hobbit hole? A pair of shoes so beautiful you would willingly fork over $800? Probably not. It's fantasy and I intend to appreciate it as such.

Hey Chelsea! We did! :) What did you do for Christmas?

Oops, I should be more clear in my comments. I meant that she's gone too far in her tyrannical Sex and the City reign. I mean, I like her character well enough, but the fact that she's now producing the films? That bugs me. It means she has creative control, and I don't think she should, because it skews everything towards the "Carrie" POV, which is just way too SJP-ish and self-centered.

I prefer the friends dynamic, where the SEX of the show takes more of a center stage. Instead, it's now about... what? Going to the desert to escape your mate? I don't get it. Once you get married, your sex life doesn't die, y'know? Or go to a desert, metaphorically speaking. I feel like this sends a bad message for ladies who are married.

Perhaps my feelings can be more coherently summed up in this post by my friend, AV Flox: http://sexandthe405.com/sex-and-the-city-2-more-like-friends-and-the-desert/

Laura! Yes...what you say all makes sense, with the SJP producing. On the sex being center stage, on the sex life doesn't die once you're married - PREACH.

The extremely vague premise of this new S&TC isn't enough to deter me yet, but if the message is that married life is boring, necessitating a trip to Dubai/Morocco/Iraq/what have you with your girl friends to spice things up, THAT would be a problem.

I don't see evidence of that yet, but I'm going to hop on over AV Flox's post to see if she caught something I didn't.

Maybe I'm getting "Carried away" in thinking life married to Big is ducky, and that reason for desert getaway is a whimsical manhunt for limited edition Jimmy Choos...or something.
