SEX AND THE CITY-2: Vexed in the city

16 going on Sex-teen

Exclusive Survey: Sex and the city

Sex Education

Lacks the zest and verve of the tv series; also, a plot
The ladies are back, bolder than ever! Wait, make that older than ever. Because the unnecessary sequel to the originally unnecessary movie to a highly successful TV series is pretty jaded, never mind the dazzling outfits and the change of locale from New York to Abu Dhabi. Actually the change of location is the most annoying factor in the movie because as a fan of the TV show I thought there was still juice left to squeeze in the Big Apple. The New York set up is what gave 'Sex And The City' its panache but this time around the all expenses paid trip to Abu Dhabi that Samantha (Kim Cattrall) works out for the foursome is taken at the expense of the loyal viewers of the show.

Sure, you might want to discuss some outfits and some plot points after the movie, but while the former will give you some talking points, the latter is pretty much non-existent. It is a mash up of some of the sentiments we have seen aplenty on the show and the rest are cliched and familiar instances of troubles with bringing up kids (Charlotte and her young daughter), the adjustments you make in married life (Mr Big and Carrie) and handling a boss who's incapable of handling a subordinate who's more intelligent (Miranda).

The brands are there in droves and the movie seems to have sold its soul to commercialism. And seriously, no matter how big a fan you were of the show, let me assure you that there's no way you'll be able to handle four women bitching about their problems for two and a half hours! Forget about freshness, actor's expressions or even the emotions; the only things that change are the clothes.
