This is scathing, slightly offensive, and hilarious. Also, it kind of makes me never want to even watch the movie on DVD.

thanks for sharing, I was cracking up!
I'm watching it tomorrow with a friend. I hope I can enjoy it in the "it's so bad it's funny" kind of way

Well, Lindy West's cheap shot at Cynthia Nixon's partner says all I need to know about Lindy West.

That said, I hope the popcorn's good. I might need extra butter butter-flavored partially hydrogenized oil to get through it.

True! That was mean.

As I was reading it, I had trouble deciphering if the description of the plot stuff (re: the stuff that happens in the faraway city that I can't spell from memory) was actually true, or if she was exaggerating.

ha, that article is hilarious. i've not had a chance to go to the movies at all this year, it'll be only fitting if the first one is something this seemingly craptastic.

I was a little appalled at the length of the movie. The first movei didn't need to be as long as it was, this new one CERTAINLY does not.

yeah, i've been shocked in interviews to hear how long it is. now i'm just trying to figure out when's the best time to see the movie. i'm figuring some weekday matinee will be the slowest. no offence to any fans, but i just don't want to be surrounded by a ton of screaming mega-fans or anything.

Thankfully, my boss said she wasn't interested in going, so I won't feel obligated to go have a fun ladies' night.

We're going to save that for Eat, Pray, Love instead.

I went to the midnight screening for the first movie completely unaware of the length

a few of my friends saw last nights screening but I decided to wait until tomorrow. I was receiving some funny texts about the film though.

I'm still excited about it. Part of the reason the movies don't work is because the dynamic of SATC worked as a TV series with many episodes a season to tell this story. It was, in my opinion, one of the best shows ever created. That's how we came to know it and how we're used to seeing these characters and their stories. It loses something in trying to take it to the big screen because they're trying to condense a plot line to 2.5 hours that we're used to seeing unfold over 18 episodes. It does fall flat compared to the brilliance of the TV series in terms of quality, but I'm so emotionally invested in these characters that I don't really care. I don't expect anything but having a good time having Cosmos with my real friends and then going to see my favorite 4 "fake" friends. And of course, the biggest reason I'm excited for this movie, the return of my boyfriend, Aidan Shaw.
 
Also, there's a rumor that Samantha and Smith end up back together which would make my SATC day. love them together

I thought the movie was pretty good. Will be honest there were a couple of parts where it was pretty damn cheesy lol. No doubt this movie lacked the emotional punch that was in the first one. Rather decent sequel though and I did enjoy it for what it was.

Btw guessing a lot of people are waiting today to go and see it or the reviews are keeping them away. There was hardly anyone in the theatre last night.
