    Has anyone seen this film or has the intention of watching it? Is it good? I just don't get people's infatuation with this series. I have tried to watch it ... BELIEVE me! One of my friends, (a girl, mind you), loves the show and has tried numerous times to get me to watch it. Then one of my gay friends suggested for us to watch the movie and I just can't see myself sit through the film cause it's just not for me. I guess I SHOULD like it because I'm gay ... the inner woman in me must be repressed or something ... LOL. Yet, I don't like the show and I never will ... the series always bored the hell out of me. LOL.

    You might be suffering from vulvodynia. Check with your gynecologist asap.

    To be fair to "Sex and the City", here's an article defending the movie:

    The Sexual Politics of Sex and the City

    Posted by Amanda Marcotte, Pandagon at 7:00 AM on June 6, 2008.

    Sexist criticisms of Sex and the City miss the point.

    I sort of liked it. It did feel sort of beside the point already, though. It wasn't as light-hearted or funny as I'd hoped.

    One of my best friends saw it with his girlfriend. He loves his chick flicks. He said it was really good. He wants it on DVD now. When we lived together, him and my other roommate would watch it. I would just go to my room and watch something else.

    My BF and I walked out. We thought it was a bit boring. For us it will make a better "sit home with a bunch of friends and cocktails" DVD movie.

    My attitude is to make my life its own series... and it's called DRAMEDY.

    I have heard a lot of good reviews. My partner and I will probably see it today. We were big fans of the series.

    Tough crowd here, dang!!

    I saw it and I will say I did enjoy the series, you have to admit it was and still is an entertaining show/series. Yeah they probably took too long to release/do the movie, however at just a simplistic level, the movie was entertaining. Personally I was hoping for Jennifer Hudson to play a character that would have been seen more in the movie or at least sooner. "Samantha" once again was GREAT! I always enjoy the way they write her/the character up; she does/says a lot of things that people in general will not.
    But seriously, like MOST movies, don't read too much in to it, it's just entertainment and this one was descent basic entertainment.


    Zimmy, I'd TiVo your shit!!!!

    I saw it by myself on Friday (when it opened down here in Mexico) and liked it, but a lot of that is because I liked the TV program.

    Some things seemed to happen as quickly as on the program, which worked in some ways, but didn't in other ways, for example in the matter of Amanda's husband Steve.

    The movie does make NYC look beautiful.

    In my opinion, being gay (or female) does not require liking the movie or the show. I probably wouldn't have seen the movie, if I hadn't checked out the show on reruns and gotten to 'know' the girls.

    Just as a side note: 1010 5th avenue, where Carrie and Big bought an apartment, has three listings in the NY Times Magazine today. Guess the owners are cashing in.

    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.

    and I couldn't agree with him more...

    Me, another guy, and 3 girls saw the thursday midnight showing when it came out. We of course got cosmos before the movie. We all loved it and cried and laughed during the whole thing. I loved how they gave Samantha a good story line.

    I pretty much peed myself watching it. I think it was even funnier than most of episodes.

    I'm with Crimthan, I'll wait for DVD -- I like some of the shows, but I'm not sure I could last he movie, particvularly after the reviews, but I suppose there has been worse. Anyway DVD is cheaper and along with gas that is reason enought at this time.

    My bf and I saw it on the opening day with his sister and her gf. I was expecting it to be very predictable and it.... wasn't. I loved it actually.

    All the little very appropriate things that happened were perfect for each character.

    I'll see it again, and probably one more time. And then buy the DVD.

    Oh my God Zimster,you are crazy...love it. This movie was great,but the crowd,its genre'..the ladies all dressed up to the nines to see it,and I am sure they had a few drinks prior.They were the characters in the series..it was like Rocky Horror. But,it was funny & I never watched the show when it aired.But for the older generation of woman standing together,it was not all ass & tits.I love a good puchline,you'll see after the shower scene(s).

    I saw it yesterday. I thought it was too long and too flabby. Why did Carrie need an assistant? Seemed like the producers had thought they needed a token black character to appeal to a wider democraphic.

    I felt sorry for Samantha I thought she was short-changed in the movie by her poor storyline, maybe it was something to do with the fact that the actress doesn't get on with SJP.

    Saw it on Friday with the bf (I wanted to go see Indiana Jones). It was ok, but not fantastic. Samantha had the best lines, but it was basically a long TV episode, it's one to watch on DVD not at the flicks......

    I saw it and thought it was okay...
    I think they wanted to do too much in one movie and made it a little too long
    the whole Jennifer Hudson part seemed like it was just tacked on and could have been scrubbed
