Sex and the City 2 – SHEva night out!

Posted by admin

I attended opening weekend for the highly embellished SATC2, not once, but twice.  After seeing it the first time, I wasn’t too excited to sit through it again.  I’ve read the reviews, and they haven’t been nice.  I left the theater the first time feeling let down.  Hollywood seems to have crushed my beloved characters’ souls.

But, the second time around, I came to the realization that I was reading too much into it.  It’s really more about the experience of dressing up and drinking cosmos with my soul mates than it is about picking the movie apart.  ALL of the reviews focus on the political message, or the extravagances that the characters flaunt in a down economy, blah blah blah.  My main gripe is that ”the City” is supposed to be the 5th character, right?  Why did the girls spend most of the movie in Abu Dhabi?   The camel riding was the ultimate roll-your-eyes moment for me.  Ugh.

But, aside from all that, it was much fun to be with my SHEvas.  Each of us assuming the name and personality of our favorite SATC girl and teetering into the theatre in our fabulous heels trying not to spill our pink cocktails, while admiring the outfits of the other theater-goers who went all out to “get Carried away.”

Can you wait to rent the movie and watch it at home?  Sure.  But it won’t be nearly as enjoyable.  Go spend some time with your soul mates and just take the movie for what it is…an over-the-top sensory indulgence from beginning to end.
