Known Trivia

  • Victoria Beckham reportedly wanted a role.
  • Katie Holmes was considered to play a role.
  • Eva Green was offered a role.
  • Penélope Cruz mentioned in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that she shot her cameo in two hours, and said that she wanted to do it because she was a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker and the show.
  • The film was delivered to theaters under the code name “Heart of the Desert”.
  • The blue Manolo Blahnik pumps that Carrie leaves in the penthouse in “Sex and the City,” and that Big uses as the “diamond to seal the deal,” can be seen over her left shoulder when she’s in her closet packing for Abu Dhabi.
  • The dress Carrie wears to dinner when Big picks her up from her old apartment is the same one she wears when apologizing to Natasha, Big’s ex-wife, for her and Big’s affair in “What Goes Around Comes Around” (Season 3).
  • The airport when the ladies arrive in the Middle East is not the Abu Dhabi Airport. It is the airport of Marrakech, Morocco, famous as well for its architecture.
  • The government of Abu Dhabi did not allow filming as it was considered “too sexual” for the conservative Emirate.
  • It was erroneously reported that due to a product placement deal with the studio Carrie Bradshaw would own a Hewlett-Packard laptop instead of her ubiquitous Macintosh laptop. Bradshaw’s laptop is the same PowerBook G4 seen in the previous film.

Goofs: Continuity: When Carrie is dressing up for the wedding, her hair-do changes from the hotel bedroom to the actual party.

Plot: While wrestling with the pressures of life, love, and work in Manhattan, Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte join Samantha for a trip to Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), where Samantha's ex is filming a new movie. Full summary » |  »

Story: Two years have passed since Carrie Bradshaw finally bagged John "Mr. Big" Preston, the man she was always meant to be with. Just as her friend Charlotte must deal with her young daughter's "terrible two's", Carrie must deal with her relationship taking a turn for the worse – Big likes to watch old black-and-white movies on TV and eat take-out food, which prevents Carrie from feeling like the free-wheeling party girl she used to be. Meanwhile, Miranda copes with a new boss that can't handle an intelligent, powerful woman, and Samantha works a public relations angle that gets the fashionable foursome an all-expense-paid trip to Abu Dhabi.Written by The Massie Twins

    I AM female. I love to watch a good chic-flick. However, I was sodisappointed. This movie has little to offer except constantly changing'bizarre' costuming presented as high fashion and thoroughlyembarrassing 'ugly American' scenes of over-indulged, entitled andrudely written characters. I went to the theater to enjoy a fun movie.I came away shaking my head. The movie was disrespectful to me as anAmerican woman. Who acts like Samantha when in a foreign country, theMiddle East or otherwise? As I watched the characters make total assesof themselves I was embarrassed for them simply sitting in the theater.It's no wonder other countries believe Americans lack respect foreveryone and everything. Hollywood apparently does and wants everyoneto know it. Unfortunately, the general public is judged byHollywood–the American delivery system. It's not worth the money tosee it. If you can get it on DVD for a buck, then judge for yourself.

    My sister and I were so excited about going to this movie. With therecession, the loss of jobs and general pessimism of late – the thoughtof dressing up, drinking cocktails and watching a great movie in thecompany of a whole room full of women like us was excellent. Wedesperately wanted to love the movie.

    Initially, everyone seemed to be in good form – a bit of a cheer whenMr. Big came on screen; gasps and giggles in response to the first fewjokes….then uncomfortable silence. My sister squirmed in the seatbeside me through the horrible 'I am woman' song. Having visited theMiddle East myself (and enjoyed the cultural experience and friendlypeople; albeit with a different outlook on life) I was pretty appalledat the blatant lack of propriety exercised by the four.

    I have to admit when the movie ended, all the women around me turned toeach other and said it was 'great' – I don't think we were ready toadmit that it was possibly the biggest disappointment ever. My sisterand I had planned to talk about the outfits and scenarios after…wecompletely avoided the topic. We had all looked forward to this movie –we couldn't admit to ourselves (never mind anyone else) that it wasawful.

    To say I loved the original show is an understatement. As I enter mylate twenties/early thirties, the reruns are even more relevant. Thecharacters in the show discussed sexuality in a fresh, exciting way.They were women you could look up to – intelligent, confident,self-assured. They bear zero resemblance to the four self-indulgent,disrespectful, two dimensional creatures I had to watch.

    I doubt any fan will take my advice and not go – I would have ignoredit myself. The movie seems to symbolise everything that has gone wronglately – by blindly pursuing materialism we lose what's reallyimportant. This movie spells that out – and leaves you feeling ashamedfor having loved them so much in the first place. Having said that, Iwatched an episode in the series a night later and realised that,actually, I'm not an idiot – they used to discuss interesting, relevantissues – just in fabulous clothes.

    As an aside, I spent an hour with my sister getting all dressed up togo, two hours chatting to her before we watched the horror show andfour hours after dancing our socks off. Maybe the fact that was thebest part means I have my priorities right after all.

    Went into this not expecting much, the premise seemed off but wanted tosee my old friends. I told myself everything you're telling yourself,well the fashion will be fun…there should be some funny stuff…mightget to see a hot naked guy. I had no idea I'd robbed of my ticket moneyand insulted for 2 1/2 hours.

    I loved the series, seen every show at least 6-7 times. I thought thefirst movie was a little disappointing, not very much depth, justwallowing and moping for most of it.

    The new movie is just an exercise in self indulgence and complainingabout problems that aren't really problems. Charlotte complaining abouthow hard it is to be her when she has a nanny AND a housekeeper.Miranda complaining that her boss doesn't like her. Carrie complainingthat Big puts a TV in the bedroom. Samantha complaining about herhormones. I just kept thinking "are you kidding me?? This passes fordialogue??". That's all in the first 8 minutes and it's just downhillfrom there. I'm just disgusted.

    Best part of the movie? The preview for the new Rachel McAdams filmthat came on right before it.

    After seeing the first Sex and the City movie, and finding it OKAY, Idecided to take a stab at the second film. I am a huge fan of the HBOseries, so i was naturally excited…

    THE GOOD: Yes, there were some funny moments, and some nice things tolook at (clothes, design, men). I liked most of the music choices, andI did enjoy the first 20 minutes or so of the film because it seemed asthough it would be building up to something interesting, but just thesefew things alone could not have made a good enough movie for one of thebest shows to ever air on television.

    THE BAD: This movie had a lot of downfalls. Lets start with the plot(or lack there of). The audience was treated to four women thatconstantly complained about their "problems". I am not saying thattheir issues were not legitimate to regular women, but they did notpresent these issues in a way that would create an interestingplot..they were just seemingly simple problems that were overdramatized and annoying to listen to (lackluster marriage, boring job,declining hormones, having children…) In the middle of these"problems" we get to see how rich they are with their maids/nannys,change of expensive clothes every 4 minutes and fancy homes. All thesethings made it hard to sympathize with them. Yes, in the show we sawtheir lavish lifestyle, but this film was rubbing it in the audience'sface, and it was a main part of the "storyline" when it reallyshouldn't have been. (plus, a lot of the clothing choices were NOTgood)

    It seemed as though they threw in the idea of going to Abu Dhabi justto make things interesting, but it just made things worse. I felt asthough there was a mocking/ undermining quality to the way theyportrayed middle eastern customs… But more importantly (to me) is thefact that when i think of the show and its title "Sex in the CITY" Ithink of that city as NYC, NOT Abu Dhabi (really, what were theythinking?)

    Overall, i felt like this was a poorly executed film that had littleresemblance to the show… I feel cheated.

    This could be the worst movie ever made. Certainly its the worst I'veseen in a very long time.

    Now, before I begin I have to say that I'm not a fan of the series tobegin with. It had its moments, but as a lifelong resident of ManhattanI mostly blamed the series for the unbearable influx of wide-eyedmoronic girls from all over the country who flocked to the city enmasse, thinking that upon arrival their lives would instantly revolvearound cosmopolitans, rich men and $1000 shoes, and who very quicklybecame insufferable basket cases once the reality of city life actuallyset in on them.

    Of course, I saw this movie with my girlfriend, as my good deed for theweek. What I was not prepared for was how horrible it actually was.

    The first ten minutes contained more cliché, stinted dialog, cornyjokes and general awkwardness than I had previously thought possible insuch a short time frame. It was embarrassing. It also involved LizaMinelli. I thought it couldn't get worse, but oh did it ever.

    Next came the foundation for the entire film, which was that the ladieswere in a funk and needed to get away for a couple of weeks. The funnything about that is how they all have impossibly great lives,especially by NYC standards. They live in massive apartments, havehigh-paying careers, plenty of money and for everyone but Samantha,loving husbands and families. And its not like there was somesubstantial existential crisis underpinning their dissatisfaction tolegitimize their feelings and generate sympathy on behalf of theaudience. It all amounted to 'Boohoooo we used to partyyyy all the timebut now we're all grownups waaa pity us'. Literally, that was it.Sorry, I don't feel bad for you guys.

    So Carrie starts a whole big fight with her husband because he doesn'tfeel like going out to some stupid party after working into the eveningand providing her with a lifestyle that includes what appears to be a$15 million apartment, two luxury cars, an unlimited decorating budget,a truly massive closet with hundreds of thousands of dollars inclothes, enough leisure time to write her stupid books AND her oldapartment to write them in. Then he had the NERVE to not buy herjewelry for their anniversary (she actually said that). It wascompletely effing nauseating.

    The rest of the women's 'problems' were no better. Charlotte has kidswho drive her crazy. Really groundbreaking stuff there. Especiallysince she too lives in a multimillion dollar apartment with a full timelive-in nanny and housekeeper. Pathetic. Miranda has a new boss whodoesn't like her very much, OBVIOUSLY because she's a woman, duh.There's no other reason for a boss to not like a subordinate other thantheir gender, clearly. And finally, Samantha is old and needs to takehormones for menopause now, stop the presses. Is your heart bleedingfor them yet? No? You must hate women, you sexist.

    Moving right along. Samantha somehow is a mega-PR agent at this point(in Times Square??), despite the fact that I've literally never seenher do any work resembling PR (and I know lots of PR people). She meetssome sheik at a party who simply MUST have her work that imaginary PRmagic on behalf of his new hotel, and as a perk of this great newaccount, conveniently gets the girls invited to Abu Dhabi. Hooray!Their dreary despair comes to an end as they're flown ultra-first-classto the glamorous 'new' middle-east, shuttled to the luxury hotel inindividual Maybach limousines (one for each of them!) and given twoweeks all-expenses-paid in the hotel's premier $22,000/night penthousesuite, because that is totally standard treatment for PR flacks.Naturally.

    All is well in this paradise for like a week, until the ickymiddle-eastern customs of female oppression begin to rear their uglyhead and Samantha is inevitably arrested for being a giant whore andhaving sex on the beach with some Dutch dude, at which point they'repolitely informed that Samantha's PR expertise would not be neededafter all, and that they'd be personally responsible for another nightof hotel charges unless they vacated the hotel in one hour. So nowthese four extremely wealthy women proceed to freak the hell outbecause if they don't hurry they may be liable for (gasp!) $5,500 eachto cover the suite. Makes perfect sense to me too. Never mind thatthey're millionaires, particularly Carrie, whose couch alone in herliving room is worth upwards of $30,000. Never mind that they couldhave also asked to be moved into regular rooms for the night so theycould leave at a normal pace the next day. But on the other hand, ifthey had been logical, we wouldn't have been treated to a madcap sceneof the girls packing and then inexplicably getting into trouble at thelocal bazaar (again related to Samantha's inability to keep her clotheson), followed by a quasi-insulting scene of burqa-clad women revealingdesigner clothes under their robes and reading a Susanne Sommersmenopause book, for some reason.

    Ultimately they make their way to the airport in a horrible littlegypsy cab (because between the four of them they couldn't afford a limoof their own too?), and before you know it, they're off to Americaagain. Oh and Carrie hooked up with her ex boyfriend at some point inthere and told her husband about it for no good reason.

    Predictably, they get home and everyone is as introspective as they'recapable of (not very much at all), and they realize how wonderful theirlives really are (no they don't). The end.

    Now you don't need to see the movie. You're welcome.

    As a longtime fan of the series I was seriously shocked and appalledthat the 4 women that were initially portrayed as intelligent, fun,sexy New Yorkers are shown here as self-obsessed, over- sexed idiotsthat are not able to travel anywhere without offending the locals andlooking ridiculous. The plot of the movie is non-existent. It all lookslike a really long compilation of advertorials with not much connectionbetween the scenes. And I am not speaking about the horribleinappropriate styling and the so-old looking women – it would be fine,if they at least were styled and made up properly: Carrie has thisweird tan, looks about 10 years older than she actually is and has noneof the coolness that made her so likable. Charlotte is losing it and inspite of all the makeup, looks tired and has totally lost her perkypersonality. Not only Samantha also looks much older than she is thanksto the terrible makeup, but her behavior is erratic and really notconsistent with what has been shown in the series. The only one who wasmore or less OK was Miranda. And don't get me started on the Abu Dhabistint – the Middle-Eastern country is ridiculed, wrongly portrayed andI frankly think that it is shown in a racist manner. It's a shame,really, that they have taken a social phenomenon and turned it into ashameful mess. I will choose to ignore this movie, pretend I never sawit and keep on watching the series.

    I feel like I was robbed. This movie was the epitome of bad moviesequels. I cannot believe that the Sex and the City girls would stoopso low to make this film. They must be desperate! Despite the tackyclothes, plot and totally obnoxious take on the once really hip, cooland classy girls from New York, the cinematography was horrendous.

    I can't believe no one on this site had mentioned the fact that youcould see the microphones above the actors heads in almost every scene!It was so distracting in addition to being tortured by their senselesscomplaining. I don't think I have ever seen such bad filming in mylife! I don't make films but I certainly would make sure I didn't getany of the filming equipment on camera!

    This movie was awful!!!!! I want my ten dollars back!

    Despite having almost not plot line at all. I did chuckle in my seat afew times. That is, until they decided to travel to another country andstart offending other cultures in a manner that should be frowned upon.I have no idea how people of middle eastern decent will view thismovie. I'd imagine that they would be highly offended as I am. Going toanother country to visit and enjoy culture is one thing, going thereand not having the slightest respect for their laws and telling them to"Fuck You!" while flicking them off because you disagree with theircustoms is another. I expected a little better for such a well knownseries. They really showed their true colors on this one. They showedhow sensitive they really can be when interpreting middle easternculture and way of life. Horrible movie.

    I had heard some pretty bad reviews but nevertheless I took my thermosof Cosmo and a girlfriend to see the midnight show. I wanted to likethis movie so much but I feel like I didn't have a chance – the girlslooked terrible- the clothes looked cheap and badly put together- thecamera angle was so unflattering- all the expensive tack they went nutsover was designed by someone who clearly had much more money thantaste. And the story, well- what story? What did actually happen? Nada.The husbands (including Smith and excluding Big) looked like they wereonly in the film because they signed a contract 3 years ago. The"story" with Aidan didn't really go anywhere and the 5th "girl" NYC wasmerely in the opening credits. Nothing happened – except for me feelingthe same way I do when I see Madonna these days – uncomfortable a bitembarrassed and really glad my mum isn't like that. All the sparkle andthe love that used to go into this show was no were to be found. I hopethey make enough money with this one tho – so they can make the 3rdmovie with all the plots we wanted to see in this one.

    A lot of people exercise their brains with puzzles found in thenewspaper. Sudoku is a prime example. The variety published by atypical paper can usually be solved in less than 5 minutes, or at leastthat's been my experience with them. The goal for me was to grab anissue of The Kansan, take a seat in class, and have the Sudoku finishedbefore learning was to commence. I didn't have class every day, so whenI didn't need the Sudoku I kept the paper. A small pile sits next to meas I type this review. I never got to working a single puzzle aftergraduating; I found that writing and talking about movies was a moresuitable exercise for me. It seems that the worse the movie inquestion, the more mistakes there are to find. For that reason alone,Sex and the City 2 is a good brain teaser.

    The adventure begins when Carrie Preston (Sarah Jessica Parker) andfriends Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), andSamantha (Kim Cattrall) attending the wedding of their best gayfriends. Since this is based on a long running TV series, I'm sure fansof the show found more significance to the scene than I did. In my eyesit was the most logical way to present Liza Minnelli as herself singingBeyoncé's "Single Ladies". It's a scene that can't be unseen, and Iknew instantly that it would haunt me for the rest of the summer.Everyone at the wedding makes Carrie feel bored with her life now thatshe's settled down with Mr. Big (Chris Noth). The most bizarre way thisis accomplished is by having a random couple tell them they will belonely if they don't have children. Then wouldn't you know it,something ridiculous happens and the girls get flown to Abu Dhabi wherethey are treated like royalty all because some sheik wants Samanthawork a PR campaign for his property. But don't worry, our leadingladies forget about any logical objective and proceed to flaunt whatthey got in the desert.

    I realize this movie didn't have me in mind when it was created. Thisis my first experience with the girls of Sex and the City and from whatI gathered I can see why an hour-long TV program running on premiumcable would be a hit. These girls are rude, and vulgar, but they playoff of each other like champs. When they are seated at a tablegossiping is when Sex and the City 2 shows any hint of a shine. Theproblems then smudge that polish.

    I've never seen so many costume changes. I'm convinced it's the drivingpoint behind the narrative. Every scene is constructed to show whatCarrie and the girls can put on then lead to another situation for themto dress up. No movie should be so shallow, and even worse they lookflammable and toxic. I wasn't sure if the running gag is that Carriedoesn't know she looks like a low rent streetwalker, there's a sign oftrouble if ever there was one.

    No care is shown with the characters. Samantha sleeps with absolutelyany guy regardless of the situation, and the outcome is too much tostomach. Miranda has a subplot about needing to balance work and familywhich gets lost in a sea of plunging necklines. Charlotte frets abouther husband cheating on her with their nanny every 10 minutes. Lastly,Carrie is simply too selfish to be likable. She has a husband who seemsto be doing a fantastic job by everyone else's standards. To her, heneeds to do more and this sets her up for a lamebrain, and oddlypredictable, encounter with an old flame.

    The wanton excess of this movie leaves no doubt as to why the worldhates us. Sex and the City 2 is a better terrorist motivational toolthan it is an enjoyable time at the theatre. These girls are easilyliving the life in New York before the film takes its sweet time tosend them to the Middle East where everything is ratcheted up to 11.They each get a personal Maybach 62 S so they can be chaffered to andfrom locations where they can offend locals and change clothes. There'san occasionally clever line but that won't vindicate watching it.
