Samantha was the only interesting character

Why should she care? The series barely resembled her book (and that's a good thing.)

Her pussy dried up a looong time ago.

Hoping it's a big flopporooney.

So, they're trying to pressure Kim into still doing it?

What's she gonna say, "fuck my royalties! This movie is gonna suck without Samatha!"?

Can't they come up with new franchises? After the last SATC flopped, they should have left this alone.

I don't know why they wouldn't give a new creative team a kick at the can behind the scenes.... I thought the series ended well. The movie scripts went from bad (for the first which just a recycle of the series) to abominable.

They'll keep cashing in as long as they know a profitable percentage of fans of the TV show will show up no matter what dreck they put out. Entertainment is a business. Just like many designer labels, productions may start off as a legit high-quality product, but eventually they end up capitalizing on the brand with a mass-market DKNY and then an outlet store where you can get a pair of branded jeans for $12, but you'll need to roll the legs up to hide the one leg that's 2" longer than the other.

We’ll now call it Vex and the City

Since it isn’t a movie, I’m hopeful this will be watchable at least. I think the story lines snd characters work better in this format,

The original series was a shameless celebration of unrestricted consumerism, superficiality, selfishness, immaturity, frivolousness, greed and pretension. If the book was even worse, R3, I don't want to even begin to imagine how awful it must be.

In my opinion, this series reflects the apotheosis of neoliberalism, which narrowly avoided collapse in 2008 and is now in full decline. Is there any need for it to return, when the social climate is so different and people have had a hopeless, enraging awakening from the monetarist nightmare heralded by the Friedmanites? I don't think that many people will take too kindly to watching the nonsensical adventures of a bunch of old ladies who behave like bitchy teenagers, and whose lives revolve around fashion and marrying rich men. This was already annoying and unpleasant 22 years ago, but now it is downright inappropriate.

As for Samantha, the character was so delirantly over-the-top that it was impossibly not to laugh at its shenanigans. She is a caricature and Kim Cattrall played her as such, to great effect. The rest of characters are insufferable and need a strong counterpoint to make them palatable; they are inviting KC to return because they know that without her, the ugliness at the series' core concept comes to the fore, and nobody will watch.

It didn't start out that way. The first few years were an examination of three normal young women and Samantha, dating in Manhattan.

It definitely did become excess-fest at some point around the middle.... I think when Darren Star moved on and others took over. Many posters here point to the ascendency of SJP as an executive producer. Anyway what merits it had, which were fairly light, were lost in a parade of shoes and crazy outfits and fabulousness. Gay men playing with real life Barbies. But at the beginning it was a show with an idea and it wasn't capitalism.
