Sex and the City fans everywhere rejoice! Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) are all back and at the top of their game in the big screen adaptation of the award-winning series.
Picking up four years after the show’s finale, the film tackles all of those questions that were left lingering–do Carrie and Big (Chris Noth) live happily ever after, and more importantly is there a wedding in their future? Will Charlotte finally be able to have a baby of her own? Can Samantha really commit to just one man? Will Miranda and Steve (David Eigenberg) survive the suburban jungles of Brooklyn?
I’m happy to report that these and many more questions will be answered to audiences’ delight. What could have potentially turned into an elongated version of a TV episode is actually a very deeply structured and thought out film that carefully ties in each character’s story without overwhelming the viewer.
Die-hard fans of the show will be satisfied and even those who didn’t follow the show religiously will still have a good time. Plus, let’s not forget the veritable Noah’s Arc of fashion that is displayed in every scene: jewelry, accessories, couture and even well-dressed pure-bred canines all make appearances alongside series regulars like Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis), Anthony Marentino (Mario Cantone) and Stanford Blatch (Willie Garson). New to the cast is Jennifer Hudson as Carrie’s naïve yet sassy new assistant, Louise.
