I wasn't entirely oblivious of the Sex and the City series. I don't think I ever watched a full episode, but I saw bits and pieces back when it first aired. It wasn't really surprising they ended up making a film sequel, but how they ever imagined they could draw it out to 150 minutes is completely beyond me.

Carrie is finally getting married. It's not the most daring or exciting topic, especially not for a film based on a series about a woman obsessing over finding the perfect man, but what did you expect. From there on out the maker go back in series mode and basically ramble on for a good two and half hours.

The character feels milked and unexciting, the comedy is absolutely terrible, the endless male vs female bickering is tiresome and the runtime is a big joke. Maybe if they'd manage to condense it into 90 minutes, maybe if they'd got some better writer, more familiar with the movie format, who knows. Hard to sit through.

I didn't care for the series and I hated the first film, so my expectations were pretty low going into this sequel. It turns out the franchise hadn't hit rock bottom quite yet. This sequel is horrendous in just about every way possible, but seeing how it was still a mild box-office success, I guess they managed to fool enough people.

The gang (except Samantha) is married now, and married life is taking its toll on these once-dashing women. When Samanta arranges an all-expenses-paid trip for the four of them to Abu Dhabi, it sounds like the perfect escape, but of course, they run into all sorts of trouble when they get there.

The comedy is in bad taste, the performances are shabby (I can't remember them being that bad in the series, but I might be mistaken) and with a runtime of 150 minutes, the film is excessively long-winding. There are no redeeming qualities here, no moments that make it bearable in any way. Terrible.
