Yes, I ran out to see Sex and the City on its opening day. It was quite the treat. The movie opens with a brief recap of where the series left off-not necessary for most of us but probably a good idea for those who have never seen the show. Of course everyone in the audience on opening day seemed to be a fan. There was lots of applause; some women even got dressed up for the show.
The story picks up four years after the series ended. Charlotte is the mother of little girl; Miranda is still living in Brooklyn with Steve; Samantha is living in Malibu with Smith; and Carrie is writing another book and preparing to move in with Mr. Big. The movie follows what happens to the girls over the next year.
All of the regulars from the series are here-even Miranda’s nanny, Magda. And, of course, the dresses, shoes, and purses. A great addition to the cast is Jennifer Hudson as Louise, Carrie’s personal assistant. She lends a much needed note of reality because, let’s face it, most people don’t live the fabulous lives of the girls. Yes, Louise has fabulous bags, but she rents them from Bag, Borrow or Steal.
The film is great fun, but there are plenty of sad moments, too. Whether or not you’re a fan of the series, I’d recommend seeing this.
