Critic Reviews

  1. I enjoyed these characters more when they were rich, rather than obscenely rich, when their self-involvement and life crises had one foot on planet Earth -- and when they weren't all gussied up like Mae West in "Sextette."

    Frothy as it is, SATC2 is best when it's about the women, not the wardrobe.
  3. 50
    A long sit in the shallows, the equivalent of five half-hour episodes strung together.
  4. The Muslim women in “SATC2” are props in the froth. Come to think of it, so are Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda.

    Part of the action occurs in the desert, which inadvertently proves apt, since the oases of enjoyable moments -- and they do exist -- suffer from being spaced too widely in what's otherwise a long, arid trek.
  6. 50
    If “the gals” have to bow out, at least they try to do it in a sprint -- in their Manolo Blahniks. It’s a pity nobody told them you can’t run in heels -- in sand dunes.
  7. The "Fab Four's" dramadies continue for the audiences who love them. Trouble is the surrounding story and its supposedly fun sojourns are as embarrassing as granny panties.
  8. 42
    Yes, this is a great time for escapism at the movies. But there's a point at which escapism throws what we're trying to forget back in our faces.
  9. As Carrie might type on her laptop while giving one of her girly little shrugs, When did Sex and the City become so long and mean so little?
  10. The satire is sagging, the irony's atrophied and the funny is flabby.

    A movie gaudy enough to make Dancing with the Stars seem dignified.

    This feels bigger and more cinematic than the first film, and sees a progression in the lives of the characters. But many of the jokes are beyond broad, and the Middle Eastern stereotypes are shockingly cack-handed.
  13. Sex and the City 2 isn't a feature film as much as it is consumer porn. The audience is not asked to relate to the characters, or at least what we remember of them, as much as to their shoes, their bags, their apartments, their couture, their stuff.
  14. It's over the top, and over the rainbow. But just like Carrie's worries about the "sparkle" leaving her marriage, this movie is like once-brilliant Champagne, carelessly left out overnight. And gone flat.
  15. One wrongheaded jaw-dropper follows another.

For those who haven't been through the whole ride, i am afraid they are gonna have a bumpy ride cause there is a whole lot of "Not SPARKLE" stuff in this movie. Extremely predictable and lame story with nothing in it to be excited about. And this is coming from a huge ducking fan. Full Review »

    Offensive on so many levels, why do they have to be quite so vacuous?

    This movie does accomplish the goal of being a "feel good" movie. The shallow characters make you feel good about your own personality. The This movie does accomplish the goal of being a "feel good" movie. The shallow characters make you feel good about your own personality. The selfishness of the characters will make you feel great about how you treat others. The amount of offensive material toward Arabs will make you feel good about your tolerance toward others. The mere stupity of this film will make you feel smart. This is the only accomplishment of the movie (even if it wasn't intended) and the awful jokes, non-likable characters, and just how tasteless the entire production is only furthers this series to its grave. Most men know that they should stay away but the girl friend or wife will force them to consider attending. Ladies, if you really love your man, you won't subject them to this. Full Review »
