Why get the band back together if you're not going to add some new songs to the greatest hits?

... the movie was truly gratifying and fed our SATC appetite, at least until the sequel coming up (can't wait!).

This celebration with Carrie & Co. — very much television writ large — seems precisely the Sex and the City reunion the show's fans had hoped for.

Learning and hugging. There's lots of that here ‚" woman to woman and man to woman ‚" which satisfies the movie's fantasy fulfillment of both amity and eros.

Not sure a movie was needed but it's cool to see all the glamour on the big screen. I think it's just a little too long for a chick-flick.

The girls are back together 4 years after the TV series. There's lots of drama - wedding, affair, baby. Lots of fab shoes and clothes. Makes you appreciate… More

Not a bad light entertainment for fans of the show, but what's the point if just about every episode in the series is better and WAY shorter?
Daniel Perry
Before talking about the film itself, some understanding of the HBO series is required. There is not a hope in hell that this film could stand on its own. When… More

there're several irrealistic points in this movie, and i'd bring up my perception of what real life should be: i'm a 27-year-old, if i give up… More
