5 Reasons Why Sex and the City Dissed & Disappointed its Fans
I have all six seasons on DVD. I can mouth along with the characters
in whichever season I select to watch. I watched and re-watched every episode when it came to TV. I carefully picked out a Carrie skirt here, a Samantha phrase there.
I had written the date on my calendar for months. Finally I would have new lines to hear over and over and new styles to emulate.
I went to Sex and the City 2 on the very first day it opened. I squirmed through the movie like a 5 year old in Sunday church. I couldn’t wait until the movie was mercifully over. I didn’t like it as I watched it. I hated it as I reflected upon it.
5 Reasons why Sex and the City 2 Disappointed its Fans
1. There is no city
new York City was the fifth lead in the HBO series. The TV show introduced women around the world to new York fashion, labels, restaurants, street names, districts like the meat packing district and even muggers. this movie took the city out of the title and off of our radar screen. The movie title was not Sex and an Arab country.
2. The sex is weird
Sex was the sixth lead in the series. Each of the girls had sex, thought about sex, talked about sex, or wrote about sex. Women who did not watch the show, and men everywhere, knew Samantha. Sex permeated the series. this movie made the sex uncomfortable, and sex in the series was never uncomfortable.
3. we can no longer identify with the girls
one of the most appealing features of the series was that everyone identified with a different character. who in their right mind can identify with a freak who wears 5 inch heels to a flea market, or a woman who complained about a near perfect life?
4. They became caricatures
The girls were always fun. and although they all were more: more preppy, more career minded, more fashion forward, more sexy, they were still within the realm of possible. this movie made them caricatures of them and no one wants to identify with a cartoon.
5. even the clothes were wrong
The one saving grace of the series and the movie was always the clothes. They weren’t even fun in this movie. not appropriate and not something we could or would want to copy.
It’s not just that it disappointed us. it disappointed, bored us,
made fun of us, made fun of our girls, and dissed our city.
