The reason why the series on HBO, ‘Sex And The City’ rocked, was because the four women at its center were smart and funny and genuinely devoted to each other despite their differences.
Also because it was a pleasure to see a show that celebrated different choices for adult women and because the clothes were frothy and fetching and finally because it was sheer fantasy, but one in which we could, if we squinted, recognize ourselves and our friends. But sadly, after having been converted into a film series, the same does not hold true any longer.
In this sequel to the 2008 released first film, neurotic writer Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) is starting to realise that life after saying "I do" to paramour Mr Big (Chris Noth), isn't everything she thought it would be. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) has moved back to New York and is battling valiantly against menopause, and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) has forgiven adulterous husband Steve, targeting her rage instead at her chauvinistic boss.
Meanwhile, Charlotte (Kristin Davis) is struggling to be the perfect wife to the ever-dependable husband Harry and a perfect mother to their two daughters. By chance or rather dramatic contrivance, Samantha is invited to the United Arab Emirates to sample the delights of a newly opened luxury hotel, and she takes her chums along for a ride.
