Sequel to Sex and the City: The Movie (2008)

“Carrie on”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) take another bite out of The Big Apple-and beyond-carrying on with their busy lives and loves in this sequel.

What happens after you say ‘I do’? Life is everything the ladies ever wished it to be, but it wouldn’t be ‘Sex and the City’ if life didn’t hold a few more surprises… this time in the form of a glamorous, sun-drenched adventure that whisks the women away from New York to one of the most luxurious, exotic and vivid places on Earth, where the party never ends and there’s something mysterious around every corner.

It’s an escape that comes exactly at the right moment for the four friends, who are finding themselves in-and fighting against-the traditional roles of marriage, motherhood and more.”

Tbis film is not recommended by Christian Spotlight due to the nature of its strong sexual content and language.

…distracting plot… It’s worse than Sex and the City 1, and that alone is a remarkable achievement. [½/4]
Rick Groen, The Globe and Mail
…Part of the action occurs in the desert, which inadvertently proves apt, since the oases of enjoyable moments—and they do exist—suffer from being spaced too widely in what’s otherwise a long, arid trek. …
Brian Lowry, Variety
…Some of these people make my skin crawl. The characters of “Sex and the City 2” are flyweight bubbleheads living in a world which rarely requires three sentences in a row. Their defining quality is consuming things. They gobble food, fashion, houses, husbands, children, vitamins and freebies. … [1/4]
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
…needless, heedless sequel… the satire is sagging, the irony’s atrophied and the funny is flabby…Still, the women are not anywhere as desperate as the movie itself, which fails its stars and its many obsessive fans… [2/5]
Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
…this shtick is getting old… this movie is like once-brilliant Champagne, carelessly left out overnight. And gone flat. …[2/5]
Amy Diluna, New York Daily News
…unimaginative story premise… piles on the lame puns and product mentions to the detriment of character and plot development. …[1½/5]
Marjorie Baumgarten, The Austin Chronicle

Negative—I have to ask if you are a Christian and know anything about the series why would you plunk down your hard earned money to see this? The movie/series portrays all that is wrong in our current society: materialism, promiscuity, self centeredness, etc. Why celebrate this? Anyone, who says it is in good fun doesn’t realize there are many young girls out there that believe this is the way women behave. Very bad stereotypes of woman set in a place that realistically would not deal or tolerate these woman lifestyles. I will take a pass as I know what I would be in for, since I used to watch the series when I was very young and naive.
