Did you get to the Sex and the City movie this weekend? I did! Let me start by saying, I liked it...I did. There were things that bugged me, but seriously, how can you go wrong with fabulous fashion, crazy fabu. shoes, the SaTC gang, and time away from the kiddos? I'm just gonna dig in, and I'm going to write the spoilers in white so if you want to find out what happens, highlight, and read on...
OMG, first off best part of the whole movie was when Carrie beats Big with her bouquet (after he tells her he can't do it) and runs back to Charlotte. Big tries to explain, and Charlotte (hugging Carrie with one arm, and pointing at him with the other) screams "NO!" and shoots him a look of death! Awesome moment! Yes, it was over the top, but I loved it.
Kim Cattrall was gold, start to finish. In my opinion, she stole the show. Loved at the rehearsal diner when annoying guy from Big's office was smarting off during Samantha's toast, and she yells "Hey Dickwad, I'm talking!". She was great!
Truth be told, I kinda thought the whole Miranda story wasn't really that great. Steve cheated, once, and tells her. She never once asks "who was it with?". I don't know, I kinda think that would be the first thing out of my mouth! I could not believe she said "I can't believe you would want to get married!" to Big at the rehearsal dinner! B*tch! I would have killed my girlfriend if she scared my man away from the altar...wrung her neck! I was glad that Miranda and Steve got back together, but I really could have done without her nude scene...whoa Chicky, put that away:o
Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I didn't think Jennifer Hudson was all that. She really seemed like she was acting in all her scenes, very uncomfortable. I mean, the character idea was cute, but I didn't think she pulled it off, at all. She did have a great song on the soundtrack though.
Sarah Jess. was spot on. As far as I'm concerned, that girl is Carrie. Holy crazy abs Batman! What does she do to stay in shape? There was a scene, where she had been dumped, had no makeup on, and she just looked old, and exhausted. I just buy her whatever she does. It struck me that you really never see them without makeup, it just stuck in my head. Outside of that scene, girl looked fierce!
I agree with all the critics, the movie really was about half an hour too long, but I really didn't care. The camera could have followed them around while they shopped, and I would have watched. I'd say, if you are a SaTC fan, run...don't walk to see it. You'll love it! Yeah, it's not perfect, but it's really good to catch up with the girls. Oh, and...fwiw, I would have forgiven Big and married him for the closet alone!!!
What does one do after the movie? Buy shoes of course! I tried on those cute bronze shoes I wanted...so uncomfortable. Boo hiss:( Sooo, I bought these instead...
No, they are not Minolo's, but they are so cute and comfy, and they make me 5'7"...yay! I just love'em!
