The "Sex and the City" Movie (no secrets revealed)

So last night Schue and I went to see the "Sex and the City" movie. Don't worry ... if you haven't seen it and still want to, I'm not going to give anything away.

We went after work, so there wasn't a whole lotta time for putzing around. Before we left Schue's house she offered me a pair of socks because the movie theatres are always so cold. I thought they might look a little funny with my work dress and sandals, and for a movie that's all about fashion I figured I'd rather be cold than look like I ought to be living under a bridge somewhere. Anyhow, she grabbed her warm stuff shoved it in her bag and off we went.

We swung by "320 Produce" for a quick bite to go. I order a "sandwich" which ended up being the length of a baseball bat and as big around as my thigh. I purposefully wanted something small to hide inconspicuously in my bag. Uh, so much for that.

So while we waited for the movie to start, Schue pulled out the sweat-jacket she brought, only to find it was her sweatpants!! bahaaaaa!!! I guess she could've tied the legs around her neck to make a scarf ..... or stick her arms in the legs to keep warm ... or put the pants on? Nah. She shoved them back in the bag, and the lights dimmed to start the movie.

Oh yeah, the movie. That's what I wanted to write about.

I will tell you this ... I LOVED IT!!! I thought it was perfect.

There were parts where I laughed so hard I could barely breathe. And of course, I cried too. But then again if you know me, you know that I cry at just about anything I watch. Some commercials even get me. Sports movies? Forget it.

A few nuggets without spoiling anything:

  • I would've like to see more of Harry. His part was too small, and I really like his character. (I just re-read that and it sounds a little risque ... "his part was small" .. "I wanted to see more of him". Take your mind outta the gutter!)
  • I'm happy Stanford Blatch didn't talk more. He was one of my least faves in the whole show.
  • The movie is very Carrie-centric. She's not my fave of the girls, but I'll forgive the writers because it meant Big was in it alot. I heart Big, even if he's an ahole sometimes.
  • Jennifer Hudson's part was very well-done. I really like her (loved her in Dreamgirls), and I think she was a nice addition to the cast without changing what the show is really all about.
They tied it up in a nice little bow, but still left enough open for a sequel. In the meantime, I'll be purchasing the DVD and watching it over and over and over again.

Two manicured thumbs up.

I'm going this weekend, and am so freakin' excited, I could pee. I don't even care much about the story - I just want to see fabulous clothes and SHOES!

And I could always see more of Harry - but I am a little partial to short Jewish men...
