Carrie and the gang is back with their designer labels and their love lives.
The movie takes off from four years after the TV show ended. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), her husband Steve and their son have made a life for themselves in Brooklyn. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) is settled in a monogamous relationship and has been living in LA. Carrie (Sarah J. Parker) has been in a 3 year realtionship with Mr. BIG and things are ready to be taken to the next logical step. One thing that does not change – all four of them are the best friends that they were.
Carrie & BIG’s BIG decision to get married does not have the ending that Carrie wanted. Her dreams shattered she looks for consolation from friends and work and pieces her life together.
The basic theme of the story is that life is not a fairy tale. The four girlfriends’ lives represent four samples of very real relationships. Miranda in a marriage that is fading, Samantha’s slow suffocation in a relationship that changes who she is and Carrie always running after love. Charlotte(Kristen Davis) has a lucky break in the movie with nothing absolutely wrong in her life.
I wish I could say more about the movie or the message but there is not much. It is pretty much like any other episode of the series. Their is enough eye candy and humour to keep you interested through the 2 hours.
‘Sex & the City’ movie retains the essence of the TV show. And thats what makes it watchable
Verdict : Watchable once. But only for the ladies.
