movie was (of course) slightly predictable but fun
it still amazes me how many products they manage to get into 1 film
I saw the Stabucks logo more often than I do when in Starbucks even

fun show though
and for a tv series being made into a film surprisingly good

I still haven't seen the movie, the social club at my work had organised tickets for Gold Class screening a couple of weeks later I think.

But I'm spending this long weekend rewatching the show on DVD... man it's addictive, I'm almost at the end of Season 3.

I finally saw it yesterday. I laughed, I cried, I ate a bucket of popcorn.

I had mixed feelings about Big, as I guess everyone does.

On the one hand, I totally understand what happened in the end.

On the other, the relationship has always been on his terms, and so it was once again.

But relationships are complicated and they do seem right for each other.

I don't honestly know what I would have done.

I saw it again for the 2nd time last night and I said almost the exact same thing to my friend.

Seriously, that man! He's like crack cocaine!

Has everyone finally seen it to where we can discuss it freely by now? Huh?

I think it's fair game. The movie has been out for almost 2 weeks, and if someone doesn't want to be spoiled, they shouldn't open the thread, RITE? I didn't open it til after I saw it. I wanted to be surprised. But hey, that's just me...

^ I will test the water...

I think Miranda's act of forgiveness is easier than Carrie's. I mean, I'm still mad at Big.

I agree, joyful. Steve should have pushed for counseling first before doing what he did, but that's one misstep over how many years? Big's been pulling this stuff for years.

I have a hard time being too mad at Big for the wedding thing, because it didn't feel right. It just screamed "THIS IS A PLOT DEVICE ONLY TO KEEP THEM APART FOR THE WHOLE MOVIE", you know?

He had a moment of cold feet, and part of me thought Carrie overreacted. Yes, be upset, but she should have listened to what he had to say. Then she could decide to beat him over the head with her bouquet or not.

But anyway. Like someone else said, I don't know how I'd react in the same situation. I certainly wouldn't have put a damn bird on my head for the wedding.

Have you seen the movie?

Although he was my favourite I thought Aidan was a bit of a pushover. I think Carrie really messed him around especially when she had the affair with Mr.Big. He should have left her when she refused to cease contact with the married ex-boyfriend. It was never going to work.

I loved the bouqet moment.

I know it's a movie and all but he should have just stepped out of the car and spoken to her rather than sitting there like a muppet and then driving off. Or better yet, speak to her before letting her leave the house with that bird stuck to her dome.

I think that in the context of Carrie & Big's relationship history--together and in their relationships with other people--and given who Carrie Bradshaw is, etc., that what Big did was just about the cruelest thing he could have done.

But she forgave him.

I felt that the film contradicted the series in some ways. Carrie and Big were always portrayed as people who weren't the marrying kind. Then they end up hitched in the film. I still can't believe that they'd ever stay together and I couldn't imagine that would have ever happened in the series. I guess they were saving that storyline for the movie!

I honestly didn't love the movie as much as I thought I would..Too much media hype. Don't get me wrong I love, love SATC but it was sooo predictable. I honestly don't know what I would have done in the end after being humiliated on my wedding day..That would have pissed me off to great proportions and I probably would've said "bye-bye"
