Sex and the City Movie Won’t Suck?

Sex and the City Movie Won't Suck?

Though I’ll admit that I’ve always had a guilty-pleasure excitement burning deep inside me for it, I’ve never actually had much faith in the Sex and the City movie. The final season kinda sucked, and even so, it tied things up a bit too much for there to be more. And the series is totally small screen, so I worried if it would just seem awkward up there. And that all still worries me. But now there’s a review. And its a very good one. But its also the New York Daily News. Which might mean absolutely nothing. Either way:

The real joy of “SATC” as a movie lies in the return of all those things that mass television syndication has stripped from the series in the intervening years. The “Oh, my God, they did not just do that!” moments, the nudity, the swearing, the unabashed love of human frailty and downright wackiness. Snappy, verbal sparring punctuates the laughs and more than a few shed-a-tear moments.

There’s still sex, except now it’s not “how big?” or “where?” but the age-old marriage conundrum of “how often?” And the city? Sure, it has changed since 1998, but who can argue when Samantha shouts down a Gotham naysayer with, “Old New York, new New York, it’s still f—–g New York!”

But just like any great night out with best friends, “Sex and the City: The Movie” is awash with so much love that it lingers long after the last cocktail runs dry.
