Consider me not on board for this movie, and I actually enjoyed the first film and somewhat enjoyed the show but this movie alienated me in so many ways and made me question why I ever liked anything about the show or the first movie, these ladies could have not come accross in more repulsive and repugnant manner, no buy for me!

+1. I didn't like the first movie much, and this was awful. Such a shame because the show was pretty good and genuinely groundbreaking at points, and I think many (mostly male) critics have used the movies as an example for how the show was always bad, when it wasn't. But yeah, this movie is incredibly culturally insensitive, occasionally racist, very elitist/classist, and also kind of homophobic in the opening. So many sections, I just couldn't believe they had the gall to be so offensive in such an obvious way, and to make those characters so awful. The fact that all the 'tension' in the final act revolved around them missing their first class flight home (as in, if they were late they'd HAVE TO FLY BACK IN COACH as though that is just the WORST THING EVER) really says it all. Carrie always annoys me, but one of the worst bits was probably Charlotte "I cook with my children in vintage Valentino" and Miranda "I quit my job when i have a sexist male boss" saying 'HOW DO THE WOMEN WITHOUT HELP DO IT, HERE'S TO THEM'. I don't see how any woman, especially if they aren't ridiculously wealthy like everyone in SATC, could not feel so patronised at that.

This review really sums it up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHeQeHstrsc

I did quite enjoy my viewing experience of it though. I was at a cinema which served alcohol and played a drinking game. Cocktail #1 for every time something racist was said, cocktail #2 for elitism. We were wasted by the end.

How is he a troll? He stated his opinion just because he likes Sex and the City 2 more then Inception doesn't mean he's a troll.

This may be considered "trolling" but here goes...

I don't watch this series because...well....I'm a straight guy. Also, I like to watch shows with actual attractive females. Usually, I would agree with a statement like Eru's, because sex usually beats everything. However, that is not the case with the girls from Sex and the City; they don't qualify. They're old and ugly. Sarah Jessica Parker's face looks like a foot, and Kim Catrall is old as ****. Don't even get me started on that red head. Kristin Davis is the ONLY exception. So it's more like :

Attractive sex > Inception > Sex and the City sex

I agree I think Kristin Davis is the only good looking one in the show. After looking at the other 3 I just get

haha, that might just be because Inception (which I loved) has managed to garner some particularly vehement fanboys. There's nothing wrong with someone saying they thought a movie could dare to be better.

But regardless of anything, Sex and the City 2 is sexist, racist, imperialistic, homophobic, elitist and classist, and Inception is not. Lots of movies are average or badly made, but rarely are they actually offensive in so many areas. I saw The Last Airbender as well, but I have to say SATC 2 was far more depressing.

But I'm sure I could be accused of trolling because of sharing my negative view of this movie on this thread, I just feel quite passionate about it, I don't mean to disrespect that fans, and I'd be interested in hearing a reasoned defense of it. Besides I'm sure it'll have a good... transfer. or something. And maybe a nice trailer on the BD. For another film.

The show and the movies are not the same thing, the movies are so much worse. Not sure it's trolling exactly for refusing to watch something because it doesn't have attractive women in it... I'm sure there's another word for that

I refuse to spend, 20 dollars to own a movie in which a horse rides a camel through the dessert.

Terrible movie. The first was excellent, but this was stereotypical and overall dull. Two stars.

It's funny, because most of my friends and I feel the opposite.

The first one had some great moments/scenes, in large part because we hadn't seen them in so long. However, Carrie spends half the movie looking like she's going to cut herself she's so depressed, and
[Show spoiler]how in the hell she ever took Big back after he LEFT HER AT THE ALTAR, IN FRONT OF EVERYONE SHE KNOWS - PLUS THE PRESS! I will never, ever know or understand. I like that he is limited in the new film, because I just hate him forever now.


This one was a fun little adventure, the girls on vacation - which is exactly what I was looking for. Instead of a John Hughes movie, we got a fun adventure.
If you have to whip out a microscope to decide if you like a Blu-ray or not, you are missing the point.

Miadaskate - There are straight SATC fans out there, just closet ones.

It wasn't on par with the first but i still loved it and will be a day one for me.

Also are people only saying Sarahs face looks like a foot because of Family Guy??

Im gay so naturally i would like it (stereotyping much) and didnt find it homophobic.

I also enjoyed it more then Inception, that movie was alright but looong.

This release will make everyone cancel their Alien Anthology pre-orders; ditch their plans for Apocalypse Now. Forget the BTTF trilogy.
