Well, the girls are at it again. Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha are groomed, dressed, shod and bejeweled and ready to prove to us that New York City is the true center of the universe and shopping is the only activity with meaning. What fun! Or not.
Sex and the City 2 is overly long and with a rather silly plot. After attending the wedding of Anthony and Stanford the girls head for Abu Dhabi. They are the guests of a sheik who has opened a new luxury hotel and hopes that Samantha is the right publicist to promote it. Unfortunately the girls, who seem so sophisticated in New York, act like bumpkins in the United Arab Emirates. They are surprised that even moderate Muslims are upset and shocked by their dress and behavior. Samantha particularly would like to convert this uptight conservative society to her free and easy ways. Not gonna happen!
I knew that SATC2 would be a silly movie, but I had hoped for fabulous outfits and scenery. Sadly, most of the clothes in this movie are ridiculous and outrageous. The scenes in the Middle East were filmed in Morocco, with very little fabulous desert scenery, and even fewer great New York scenes. The best thing about this movie is the soundtrack.
