    Sex and the City 2 will never be compared to "The Godfather, Part II." But it's everything a fan could want in a sequel.
  2. Although they've left the city behind, the girls haven't forgotten the sex. They're still as frank as ever, as outrageous as ever, as liberated as ever.

    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.

    A movie gaudy enough to make Dancing with the Stars seem dignified.
  5. The most depressing thing about Sex and the City 2 is that it seems to justify every nasty thing said and written about the series and first feature film.

    The transformation of the girls from winsome wisecrackers into whiny bling-obsessed chuckleheads is complete.

    Thanks to writer-director Michael Patrick King, I now have a fair idea how it might feel to be stoned to death with scented candles.

    You want to like the movie. You watched the series and you even sorta kinda liked the first movie. So you want to like it, you want to make it your summer time special. You want to enjoy it, but it just blows in your face over and over and over again. It's just too much. It's over-done, over-the-top, just like the wedding at the very beginning of the movie. It's over-produced and over-thought. It lacks carelessness and ease, not to mention it crosses over to ridiculousness one too many times. It doesn't have the wit and the smarts the original series had, and you can't find anything in common with Carrie - once always broke because of her shoe addiction, now living in luxury. Before, she couldn't afford to have her apartment renovated, now she's owning two and flying out to Middle East without a blink of an eye. I'm giving it 10, because when you peel all that off - the bad script, the over-produced schemes and the horrible product-placement - you kind of get what the producers wanted to do. There's a good, honest feeling of wanting you to feel entertained there - to leave the cinema with a smile on your face. Collapse

    Thoroughly enjoyable. If you're a fan of Sex in the City, you'll love it too. If you're not, you won't. It's what we've come to expect from Sex and the City. It was a lot of fun and even my husband didn't mind it too much (seeing as how he normally doesn't like "chick flicks.") I hardly ever go to theaters to see movies, but I'm very glad I went and saw this one. Expand

    I saw it last night in a packed movie theater full of excited fans -- it was great fun. Stop taking everything so seriously or trying to review this film like it's supposed to be some masterpiece. It was entertaining & I very much enjoyed. I hate this bandwagon mentality. Expand

    Breaks my heart to rate this film at such a low score. But honestly the crew of SATC could have stopped at movie #1 there was no need for #2 and there was certainly no need to base the movie on a trip to abu dhabi . The film is riddled with so many over the top sexual innuendos its almost child like that they would think the audience is that stupid. "Lawrence my Labia" The middle eastern stereotypes were offensive and awkward it was almost like this once smart comedy stepped down and degraded down to a kindergarten level of writing and acting. So not impressed! You can skip this film for sure. Expand

    Sex and the City 2 more like S@#tz and the City 2! I hated this sequel as I hated everything in this movie! They shouldn't been ended since the last movie that I enjoy just a little and of course the entire series too. The characters are not laughable,there are many subplots,and why oh WHY do we have to go over with lots of problems with these ladies? Like boring stuff in issues with their relationships and there plenty of more that is far over the top. And of course they have lots of racism and too controversial when the girls are having a break at the Middle East. It's almost as bad as the Transformers 2 and I'M NOT KIDDING RIGHT THERE,they even more racism like this. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING??? If you see this movie,I DARE you and trust me you won't be happy to see this sequel ever again. Expand

    What a heaping pile of garbage. Laughably bad. All of it. And this is coming from someone who was a pretty big fan of the show. I really wish this wasn't so terrible, but it was even worse than I had imagined. A true disaster. Unfunny, poorly acted, and looks like it was directed by a child. Embarrassing. Expand

    It's pretty much the worst comedy I have ever watched. It makes Ishtar watchable.

    It's classic summer counterprogramming: When a major action film comes out (like this week's "The Expendables"), counter it with something that appeals to women (like this week's "Eat Pray Love"). We look back at some of the worst examples of the "chick flick" genre since 1990.
