I also disliked the first movie. Mostly because I felt it deviated from their characters on the show, and kind of lost what I loved about the show. And then I saw the trailer for the second movie, and it looks even worse. I’ll probably see it, but I almost wish they hadn’t made any. The show in and of itself was so much better.

@danadelphia: I fully agree!!!

I loved the TV show but the first movie was horrific. My girlfriends dragged me to see it opening night even though I knew it was going to be nothing like the TV show. It was awful: the comedy, the outfits, the characters… ugh!

The second movie looks too ridiculous for words.

@danadelphia – same here. I saw the first one with my Future Sister-In-Law and two of her friends, and they all loved it. They were crying at the end. They asked me what I thought and I was like, “er, I really prefer the TV show… I didn’t really like the movie.” and they couldn’t believe it. 

I agree about Jennifer Hudson’s character by the way. How insulting to insinuate that as soon as her old boyfriend realized he loved her, she’d ditch everything to do with her independent life and go be a wife.

i agree with you! but i’ll be seeing it anyway, of course. They seemed to suck the humanity out of the series, you’re right. How terrible is it that my favorite part of that movie was charlotte’s horrible scene? Poop humor is funny but not in SATC! If the crowds are going to dress up, wear their heels and make a girls night out of seeing the SATC movie, please write with some wit and intelligence, and leave the rest of the junk out. Heck, i’d take a well crafted 30min-hour long show rather than a bad, bad movie. Even at 10 bucks.

Does anyone else hate how much they praise Carrie like she’s a goddess and all the other actresses play such embarrassing scenes in the first movie?

Charlotte craps herself while Carrie creates the crap in her life and then can’t figure out where she went wrong.

Thank you danadelphia!!! I felt so sad that the two hours and $9 I spent watching the first movie were two hours of my life and $9 I would never get back. I agree with you on all points. The thing about her blaming Miranda just completely made me want to vomit–what a horrible, nonsensical bunch of misogynist bull. Oh, so your fiance’s a douchebag, so you’re going to blame it on your best girlfriend instead of him? Because saying “you’re crazy to get married” is an automatic excuse for someone jilting someone at the altar? How the heck does that make ANY sense? I also could NOT get over the Jennifer Hudson role, and I could not get over the fact that somehow Big typing out a bunch of love letters proved that he was making an effort. Big freaking deal. He humiliates her and is a general sleaze and then typing some letters that someone else wrote is supposed to prove how much he really truly loves her? Give me a break. I was completely hunched down with my head in my hands by the end of the movie.

Sorry that movie just made me REALLY angry. I thought it was SO anti-woman. I can’t believe they’re making another one, it looks just awful.

The intense exotification of the middle east in the trailer made me both laugh and gag.  The movie looks cheesy as hell.  I didn’t see the first one, and I DEFINITELY won’t be seeing this one.

YIKES!! I guess I am the only one here that really loved the tv episodes and loved the first movie as well.  I don’t think any of them lost their character from the series, I felt like they all stayed true to themselves.

I’m looking forward to the sequel, not because it actually looks good, but I just love Sex in the City period.

Sorry you guys were dissappointed in the first movie.

I wasn’t too big a fan of the show so I had no desire to see the first movie…or the second. = )

I didn’t like the first movie either, and agree with all of your points, danadelphia! But most of all I didn’t like the movie because of Carrie’s relationship with Big. BIG IS THE WORST! I am a huge fan of the series, but even by the end of that, I was so over the “Big acts like an asshole and treats Carrie horribly, then apologizes way later, then she forgives him” sequence of events. The movie just topped that all off–he did something HORRIBLE which she forgave him for, AGAIN. And now the new movie looks like it’s throwing in another totally contrived reason to break them up and get back together. I don’t even think I’ll go see it.

I too loved the show.  I saw the first movie…didn’t love it..but didn’t hate all of it.  I’m not rushing to see the second.  C’mon…you are in the Middle freakin’ East and Carrie bumps into Aiden?  seriously? I’ll wait to catch it on DVD…redbox ($1 dvd rentals).

I agree with you on a lot of what you’re saying…

Then again there were some great parts like when Carrie gets her heart broken and she cries and cries and her friends are there for her… awwww love that part. I can definately relate to that. The fashion in my opinion was blah… except for the wonderful manolos! I really hated how much crap they talked about la.. but they do that in the show too.

However I’m still going to go watch the 2nd one!
