(IF YOU HAVN’T SEEN THE SECOND FILM YET AND PLAN TO STOP READING NOW, THIS MIGHT RUIN IT FOR YOU, AND WE DON’T WANT TO BE ACCUSED OF RUINING SUCH A GREAT FILM!!)
As the Sex And The City girls continue to WOW at film premiers all over the world, we can’t help but wonder what happens next to the quartet of women we’ve spent so much of our time with. Will Carrie and Big change their mind about having a family, or will they simply have to move to a bigger place for Carrie’s ever growing wardrobe? Will Miranda and Steve get their happy ever after? If the second film is anything to go by then they’re sure set for martial bliss as they appear like a couple of smitten teenagers sharing longing snogs and embraces that would make a lot of us feel nauseous. Although we do think laid back Steve is perfect for the constantly stressed out Miranda and as she encouraged him to follow his dream of opening his own bar, he returns the favour in the second film…
Will Charlotte and Harry cope with family life when they didn’t think they could have one? They say be careful what you wish for and the sequel sees Charlotte crying uncontrollably in the pantry whilst her girls run rings around her. Could it just be the case of the terrible twos or has Charlotte’s dream of the perfect family turned into nothing more than a fantasy? And finally, Samantha, she’s been the strong independent one the whole way through the series, despite overcoming cancer and ending her relationship with Smith (why oh why she broke up with Smith I don’t think we’ll ever understand) so why change? SATC2 sees Sam up to her old tricks again, leaving her in some rather sticky and somewhat illegal situations. Oh how we will miss laughing out loud at Samantha’s wild antics and matter of fact ways.
Whether there will be a SATC3 or not, we know that the girls will always have a place in our hearts and remind us that relationships will come and go (some might even come back) but friendships are forever. Corny but true.
