I just go back from seeing  Sex & The City and I LOVED IT.

I was shocked to see what a phenomenon this movie turned out to be.

Regardless of all the negative reviews, it grossed 55.7 million dollars in the first weekend.

The cinema was packed with groups of girlfriends mostly dressed up and ready to party afterwards. High energy and elevated estrogen was felt by everyone inside the theater.

I liked the movie for it's great dialog, beautiful outfits, all the drama, and a very good message:

As we live our lives, we grow, we laugh, we cry and we hurt. If we are fortunate enough to have girlfriends in our life, the part when we cry and hurt is diminished when our girlfriends offer a shoulder to cry on, a new perspective on life when we are blinded by a situation, or simply an "I'm here for you, and that will never change".

That ladies is a powerful force to have by your side.

Here is to building relationships and always having those special women in our lives.

    • I haven’t seen the movie yet, knowing me-I’ll get to it when it comes out on DVD.  Especially since I can’t sit for 2-`1/2 hours w/o needing a walk and potty break.  But I think this is a great “chick flick” for the very reasons you mentioned.
      We‘re not getting old-just older and from the direction I’m looking, we‘re so much more interesting now than we were some 2 decades ago.

    • I’m going to see it for the 3rd time tomorrow night with my 20 year old daughter.

      I was never a “Carrie” fan.  I found her to be self-centered, narcissistic and immature.  I went to the movie for good old fashioned superficial shallow fun.

      The movie surprised me.  I got teary often, laughed a lot and at the end of the movie, saw how Carrie had really grown up.

      The toast to the women in their middle age was an added bonus.

    • I sooooo agree, I was ready to email the critics and tell them to go to hell, shame on them for such terrible reviews.

      I was very surprised, the movie was written well, and they all acted the way they did in the serious but all grown up, and sitting there in the movie theater, I to got teary.......

      I’m going to L.A. So I can do this again with all my girlfriends.

    • I’ve also read all the bad reviews and vowed not to see the film (at least not till it’s on DVD). But your comments have resonated and perhaps there’s more to this movie than what your typical reviewer ‘gets‘. I just may have to go and see it - girlfriends in tow.

    • I thought it was well written and stayed true to the show.  I was afraid it was going to be to over the top but it was just the 4 of them still friends living their lives.  I loved how it went on over the months and never skipped a beat.
