I tried watching this a few times, but I couldn't stand it. I think the writers were trying to create the impression of "strong women who are free and open sexually but still have vulnerabilities" but the impression I got was "whiny, self-involved, neurotic women who don't think about anything but sex and shoes."

I think the criticisms are valid, but what sometimes gets overlooked is the important theme of friendship.

I did however see the friendships b/t all 4 women. Especially the unspoken bond b/t the friends which is sometimes a rarity.

My sister and I both love Sex in the City, Sure it's superficial in many ways, but I don't think it ever claimed to be a gritty realistic portrayal. I just enjoy the fashion, the one-liners, the friendships and relationships.

I can totally see why Carrie would get on many people's nerves, although she never irrittated me personally.

Ditto. It made me laugh often, which is never a bad thing.

Jennifer Hudson Signs Up for Sex and the City
TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 2007 08:10 AM EDT

By Caris Davis

In her first major role since her Oscar-winning performance in Dreamgirls, Jennifer Hudson is joining the cast of Sex and the City: The Movie.

The singer and actress, 25, will portray the assistant to Sarah Jessica Parker's shoe-obsessed character Carrie Bradshaw, and is in final negotiations with the movie's producers about details of her role, Variety is reporting.

The movie, which is scheduled to start shooting in New York Sept. 19, revolves around the lives of the four main SATC characters played by Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, who are all reprising their roles. Chris Noth also joined the cast to play Mr. Big again. The HBO TV hit wrapped its six-year run in 2004.

Hudson is also in the studio working on her debut album, and is in the upcoming crime drama Winged Creatures opposite Kate Beckinsale and Forest Whitaker.

Mixed bag about Sex. I thought Carrie was a cutie, but her clothes looked ridiculous. I'm surprised they never made her wear a burlap bag in some absurd attempt to be trendy.

It's not a show anymore. They're talking about a movie.

Needless to say ... since I never found an 'interest' in watching that program on TV.
The fact that Hudson is joining the show ... makes entirely no difference to the future possibility of changing my mind to see it.

Yes, I know ... I was referring to it that way as I didn't say TV show ... I said 'show' !!
Like, when people go to the 'movies' ... well ... sometimes, they say I'm going to the 'show'.
