Funny I had a hard time choosing but those movies were so awful I think they powerfully cemented the hate watching that was going on in the last several seasons.
The first was a total rip off, just a rehash of before to do Carrie's wedding on a big scale big screen.
The second was a caftan's nightmare masquerading as his dream come true. It may go down as one of the top ten bombs of all time. What a piece of shit.
Then again, it's the same, aging, deluded gang lined up for Where's My Glasses? or whatever it's called. If you can count on anybody to plumb new depths, it's this self-reinforcing coven.
Please, God, let Andy Cohen have a writing credit!

Maybe I’m in a minority but I actually enjoyed the first movie for what it was. I thought it was a good extension of the series and it was fun to check in with all the characters. Sure Carrie was a selfish monster but that was nothing new. Plus it was so episodic it felt more like binge-watching a season of the show rather than a movie.
The second movie was where they fucked it all up. They obviously were trying to ride the success of the first movie and didn’t really have any good ideas so they just threw in whatever shit they could come up with hoping it would work. Miranda was like a completely different (lobotomized?) character from the series and first movie. Samantha was so shrill and obnoxious I’m not shocked Cattrall cut all ties with the show. And yes, the materialism was so over-the-top it was distracting.

I was just looking at Carrie in the pink dress. I honestly think the clothing she is wearing is aging her more than just the age herself. I don't like SJP, but I guess I have to applaud her more natural approach to cosmetic surgery. She looks like she hasn't had a thing done and every year her age, but healthy and fine. Same with the other girls as well. We are really seeing the consequences of SJP's influence and lack of Patricia Field.

R20: I agree. The first film felt like five back to back episodes. We really didn’t need it but it was decent and far better than the sequel. The sequel was racist, sexist, and just plain unfunny. A thin plot stretched over 2.5 hours. MPK just doesn’t know to write for film. There was no sex and no city, Carrie still being a miserable cunt, Miranda and Charlotte had nothing to do, Samantha turned into this crazy caricature, and the Aidan storyline was a complete waste and made no sense.

I reviewed the fallout and it sounds like the studio originally lied. Cattrall corrected the record and said she simply didn't want to do a third movie.
At this point, Parker could have just expressed sadness, and said, "We'll figure out a way to do it without her, though we will miss her." Instead she pretty much said, "We had a great script, and Cattrall is letting the audience down by saying no," which was incredibly unprofessional. She was shaming Cattrall here.
Then, when Cattrall's brother committed suicide just four months later, Parker made a point to make make an instagram comment. Reaching out privately would have been enough during this harrowing, tragic time for Cattrall. Instead, Parker made a move that made her look like she was more concerned with optics.
I'm happy for Parker that she is getting to "tie up loose ends" with the series. Bully for her. But, the way she reacted initially wasn't becoming and not really fair to Cattrall. I totally get all of her reactions. She ran out of fucks to give.

They really need her and Big to divorce/him die for this to work. The can’t keep repeating the same thing, well I guess they can. They can show her navigating dating in her 50s, at least it’s something new. Always showing her fabulousness is just ridiculous at this point. Even her career, it’s always gone from strength to strength. Agism in the workplace is real. They won’t address any of this and if they do it’ll be wrapped up with a nice a nice little bow on top.

Which if you wanted to add some dramatic depth would, in a reversal, have men fleeing her and forcing her to reconcile whether dressing like Patricia Field dresses you and fussing about the superficial everything, including your own soul, is indeed what a man is looking for in a 50+ year woman (whether she looks like the child of Frances Sternhagen and John Kerry or not.)

I take issue with people who say that gay men were nothing more than amusing accessories in the series. Stanford was a wonderfully nuanced character. Yes, he was a bit flamboyant, but so are a ton of gay men in Manhattan. His romance with Marcus was quite touching, and I would challenge even the hardest, most bitter queen not to break down and cry when they danced at Carrie's reunion.

Why the fuck are people calling this a reboot? It's a sequel series, or a revival series, it's NOT a reboot - I've seen Americans do this all the time and it's so annoying. Reboot would be recasting all the characters with new actors, resetting all storylines etc to the beginning. What's not clicking people!?
That out of the way - I am not excited about this series, but I will watch it as a fan of the original. Samantha was by far my favourite character and Kim not being in this definitely takes a huge amount away from it for me, I will mostly be watching out of morbid fascination to be honest as my hopes for it are not high.

Two years ago, Kristin Davis, 55, who plays prissy Upper East Sider Charlotte, posted a nostalgic photo on Instagram from the 2004 Emmy Awards, showing herself, Parker and Cynthia Nixon (who plays Miranda) beaming next to two glistening statuettes — won by Parker and Nixon for their performances. Nowhere to be seen? Cattrall.
“Super happy memories and wishing joy to everyone tonight,” Davis’ caption coos. “We are all so incredibly lucky to get to do what we do!”
That night, a party was thrown for the final season, and, as Page Six reported at the time, Cattrall was the only one of the four to not be invited because she had yet to sign onto the planned film. (She eventually did, and it was released in 2008.) The whole evening, Cattrall was persona non grata in a pink Pamella Roland gown.
“No one talked to Kim except for when [Parker] won her award and kissed her,” a source said. “That kiss was staged.”
The Post’s Cindy Adams reported in 2009 that, during the nearly two months when the women were filming “Sex and the City 2” in Morocco, there was no friendly socializing off-screen. They even slept in separate luxury hotels.
Cattrall and Davis both stayed at the Amanjena, Parker at La Mamounia and Nixon at the Es Saadi. One night, Cattrall and Davis had overlapping dinner reservations in the same restaurant, and didn’t sit with each other.
When Nixon, 54, unsuccessfully ran for New York governor in 2018, Parker donated $5,000 to the campaign, and Davis handed over $2,000. Cattrall’s only endorsement came in a tweet: “I support & respect any former colleague’s right to make their own career choices.”

Stanford and Marcus had some really touching moments. The Nathan Lane episode was especially poignant. Mario Cantone was hysterical. Samantha's lesbian affair was tastefully handled, as was Carrie's relationship with the hot bi guy. I think the show had a lot of respect for its gay characters.

|by Anonymous||reply 154||July 29, 2021 10:08 PM|
How were they caricatures? Stanny had some very poignant moments, and Mario Cantone was very funny and scathingly bitchy. They went out of their way to show these characters as real human beings, and not just as accessories, on of these ladies "my gays".
|by Anonymous||reply 155||July 29, 2021 10:12 PM|
They literally referred to "Stanny" (you typing that makes me want to punch you) and Anthony as their gay best friends all the time.
Maria, Samantha's lesbian lover, was portrayed as a shrill, controlling bitch. They perpetuated the sterotype that Latin lovers and lesbians are loco.
When Charlotte befriends the power lesbians early on on the series, they portray them as cliquey bitches who won't allow Charlotte to hang with them unless she licks pussy.
When Carrie dates that gorgeous bisexual man, the eponymous sex columnist is freaked out that he "can't pick a lane" or words to that effect from memory. When Carrie was kissed by guest star Alanis Morissette, she made some stupid little joke about it being like chicken. For a woman whose entire career is founded upon the fact that she "knows sex and isn't afraid to ask" she sure was a judgemental prude.
Don't even get me started on the absolute cartoons she turned the only recurring gay characters into. These men were nothing more than token characters. I don't think the writers handled homosexuality with respect on this show at all.
|by Anonymous||reply 156||July 30, 2021 3:35 AM|
There are tons of flamboyant gay men in Manhattan who rather enjoy hanging with straight female friends, and vice versa, to gossip and discuss fashion, so how is that a stereotype? Not every urban gay man is a cock-starved circuit whore. Would you have been happier if they had been portrayed as super-promiscuous, tina-addicted sluts?
|by Anonymous||reply 157||July 30, 2021 4:19 AM|
The only time they did a gay character justice was in the episode where Carrie befriends the Australian shoe designer. I don't see why the two recurring gay characters had to be flaming clowns. They were very unlikable. But that's just my two cents. However, I'm critiquing a show became a farcical fairytale when SJP became an exec producer, so really I don't know why I expected anything resembling real life.
|by Anonymous||reply 158||July 30, 2021 4:32 AM|
The only things I disagree with in your list, R156, are the 2nd and 3rd items. Samantha's lesbian fling Maria was treated no differently than all the men she dallied with over the years (until they got to Smith). In fact, most all the men that all four women were paired with, either as one episode stories or more extended, turned out to have big flaws. You can count on one hand the times when it was the women to blame for things not working out. So why should a woman who comes into Samantha's life be treated any differently? And actually, Maria came off not so terribly. She was trying to have a relationship with a woman who A- wasn't a lesbian and B- Wasn't monogamous. That didn't make her a bad person.
As far as the lesbian clique, they all actually seemed super cool and fun, and were completely right to keep Charlotte at arms length for their lesbian group outings. No one told Charlotte she couldn't hang with them one on one, but it was a gay group. If you had a group of gay me you hung with and took trips with, etc, and a straight guy or a woman wanted to crash that party, you'd feel the same way.
