Hi. ¬†My name is Gavin and I'm a Sex and the City fan. ¬†I'm not kidding. ¬†I really am. ¬†It started when I agreed to watch it with my fiance in return for her watching The Sopranos. ¬†I was shocked when I really got into it. ¬†I know about random Skippy in the first season. ¬†I know that Burger was the worst boyfriend for Carrie. ¬†I even remember when Steve first met Miranda. ¬†Trust me, I'm a fan. ¬†I feel like I must prove that so you don't think I'm just another Sex and the City hater blasting this awful movie. ¬†When I heard that they were making a movie two years ago, I was surprised but happy because there were still unanswered questions, mainly, will Big and Carrie get married? ¬†Well, they did and the first movie was great. ¬†When I heard they were making another movie I thought, "Why?" ¬†This completely unnecessary sequel starts off great. ¬†A big fabulous gay wedding (won't say who gets married) that features the highlight of the movie where Liza Manelli performs "Single Ladies." ¬†After the first hour of the movie, the girls get invited to Abu Dhabi for a business trip. ¬†It's at that moment that the movie sinks into a quicksand pit of suck and never comes out. ¬†First of all, who wants to see them in the Middle East? ¬†The show is Sex and THE CITY not Sex and The Middle East. ¬†When you remove the girls from New York City, it's not the same. ¬†The same was true even for the show like when they went to The Hamptons, or Aiden's camping trip or the train ride across the country (see, I told you I'm a fan). ¬†Manhattan is as much of a character as anyone of the girls are and when you take it out, you've lost me. ¬†But that's only the beginning of the disaster known as Sex and The City 2. ¬†The movie gets so lost in musical numbers (you read that right), stilted dialogue, lack of chemistry and corny puns that it makes the 2 and a half hour runtime excruciating. ¬†Yes, you heard me right; this movie is almost 3 hours long. ¬†Who do you think you are, Ben Hur?!?! ¬†Just because you're filmed in the desert doesn't mean you're making an epic! ¬†The movie is a mere shell of what made the show good. ¬†Sure, it was about shallow, empty, materialistic girls who hump their way through season after season, but they also fell in love and developed real problems. ¬†The real problems in this film are covered with such a poorly-made candy coating, it's stupid, not sappy. ¬†Finally, the disastrous job that writer and director Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City, Will & Grace) did trying to make his point about the oppression of Muslim women needs to be addressed. ¬†We all can agree that the way women are treated in the Middle East is barbaric and midlevel, but King actually makes himself look like a moron by offending the entire Muslim religion. ¬†In scenes that are not only a million miles from funny and completely unrealistic, he mocks their culture to the point where it offended ME...and I'm not religious at all. ¬†If the movie took place in Utah and he did the same scenes but involved the Mormons, this film would be protested by half of America. ¬†Bottom line: time to hang up those Manolos, girls. ¬†It's a shame the series has to go out like this...in a pitiful limp of what it used to be. ¬†I had to go home and watch the show again just to get the stink off of me. ¬†The few scenes that I did enjoy were ruined by the rest of the film...oh and also by the cackling, drunk bitches that sat in front of me too. ¬†I had to yell, "Hey!, you're not in your living room, so shut the f**k up and watch the movie!" ¬†It was so "Samantha" of me!

It is cool that people are able to receive the loan moreover, this opens up new opportunities.
I was listening to you talk about Sex and The City 2 this morning on the way to work and I was dieing. I wanted to call in sooooooo bad but I have never called a radio station before and definitely have never written to one before. I haven't even scene this movie yet and I already agree with you. I know I will eventually see it when it comes out on blue ray but I'm not dieing to see it by any means. I, like you, am a huge sex in the city fan but I didn't even like the first movie. I thought it was pretty wack in comperison to the show. I just wanted to let you know that I can't believe this movie is almost three hours long and is filmed in the middle east. WHAT THE HELL??? Anyway, just wanted to let you know as a sex in the city fan and someone who hasn't even scene the movie yet, I can already tell it is going to SUCK...Anyway, thanks for the entertainment this morning. Have a good one!!!
