Sex and the City

There aren't really any movies out right now that mom and I are just dying to go see. Sex and the City is a hot one right now and it looks like a fun 'girl' movie so off we went, with our friend Sharon too.

As columnist/author Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) prepares to move in with her longtime beau Mr. Big (Chris Noth), her three fabulous friends are facing their own unique issues. Samantha (Kim Cattrall), after five years in California with her soap actor boy toy (Jason Lewis), is getting antsy for her old stomping grounds... and sexual ways. Miranda's (Cynthia Nixon) husband Steve (David Eigenberg) has been feeling unloved, and his actions drive a wedge in their marriage. And Charlotte (Kristin Davis) loves being a wife and mother.

Keeping in mind that neither mom nor Sharon have ever seen Sex in the City - the HBO Series - they really had no idea what to expect. I, on the other hand, had watched a few of the stories on HBO and was familiar with the basic story line.

However, I thought the movie did a really good job bringing everyone up to speed at the beginning - perfect for those who went to the movies without knowing anything about it....

This being said, if you've never watched the show, or you've never sipped Cosmos and hung out with a tightly knit group of girlfriends, or gazed with true adoration at a pair of $500 shoes, this really isn't the movie for you.

As for me.....I really enjoyed it!

I'm glad you enjoyed it...I didn't ever really watch the show much, but the movie looked like it would still be enjoyable...I love all things girly.:)

I am praying that I will get well soon, and I will meet you and your mom for a movie. I'll even talk my mom into coming with me.:)

I told Mom that I definitely wanted to go see Mama Mia with her....I saw previews for that and it looked like one we would definitely enjoy.

Looking forward to your next movie review!
God Bless,
