Absolutely loved it, great movie. It's a bit unrealistic with the amount of money thrown around, but then again, it's a TV show/movie, so it's understandable.
People complain about the movie being a chick flick, and even movie reviewers such as Roger Ebert claimed he lacked the qualifications to review the movie, because it was a chick flick, but he grudgingly reviewed it anyways, and bashed it.
but it is really sexism, it boils down to a bunch of guys who are jealous of the success of women.
As one columnist (from the Toronto Star) wrote:Sex and the City has a script that's a cut above the chick-flick norm, and all the preening and posing in it is clearly a celebration of female fantasies. My colleague Rita Zekas said women might go to it for the fashion, but they embrace it for the life messages.
"If all we wanted were shoes and clothes, we'd just watch Fashion Television. SATC resonates with women because the film has a big heart and is about friendship and forgiveness," she said.
I suppose many reviewers are sick of the SATC hype and they're responding out of frustration. But every major film is accompanied by a boatload of hype, whether it's the latest Spider-Man sequel or Harry Potter episode.
I can actually think of a rough male equivalent for SATC. It's a film franchise about a man with a huge ego and unfettered sense of entitlement, who cavorts with people who have spectacular budgets for clothes, cars and travel. Our hero consumes vast quantities of liquor and caviar and thinks nothing of trashing his high-priced toys.
His name is James Bond. His 22nd movie, Quantum of Solace, is currently being filmed. And when it is released this fall, you won't find anybody seriously suggesting that the enjoyment of it is a chance to get men out of the house, a degrading of the national IQ or a recruitment opportunity for the Taliban. http://www.thestar.com/article/438271
and I couldn't agree with him more...
