The four girls are back and along with them, their quest for the perfect relationship. When the hit TV series 'Sex and the City' came to a grand finish in 2004, the four lead ladies had found true love; so what is it that has united them on the big screen? It's not just all about the men and the sex, now that they are all well over 40. Now it's about the meanderings and desires of the heart.
It"s three years and three books later for quintessential New York writer Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), the central figure around whom friends Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) revolve. Carrie still loves Big (Chris Noth) and they happily split time between his and her apartments while searching Manhattan for a place that would be theirs. Marriage is yet to pop into the equation and when it does, there"s quite the girly drama that we all expect from the movie.
Miranda is settled in Brooklyn with husband, Steve (David Eigenberg), and son, Brady. Upper East Side fixture Charlotte is mom to adopted daughter Lily; Samantha has relocated to Los Angeles, where she spends her time managing the publicity for boyfriend Smith (Jason Lewis), a hot commodity in Hollywood.
And if everything continues happily, there would be no reason to carry on with the movie. So as expected, everything comes crashing in a strange concatenation of events. First to go downhill is Carrie and her proposed marriage. Miranda and Steve reach an impasse in their marriage as Charlotte worries over her miracle pregnancy. Over on the West Coast, Samantha is torn between her longing for New York and her model lover, while simultaneously, her loyalties are put to the test by a super hot neighbour!
So how do the four ladies get a grip on their lives? How does it all 'end well'? That's Sex and the City: The Movie.
Throughout the movie, the fabulous foursome, in their chic designer outfits and unnervingly pointy high heels, have managed to render sensitive performances. Writer and director of the movie Michael Patrick King has done a commendable job in keeping the script and storyline as mature as the characters are supposed to be after a gap of four years. Even so, there are moments that come off as vulgar, shrill and shallow, without which the movie would most certainly have been a better watch.
Making a mammoth hit TV series into a movie is no mean task, and the cast and crew have given it their best shot. The movie does manage to bring some hearty laughs at regular intervals though at times it falls shot of the sitcom.
