Our worst fears have been confirmed as the SATC girls call a day on what has been one of favourite series of all time. The second film did receive some negative reviews, but we loved it anyway! Was it OTT? Yes. Was it highly unbelievable? Yes. But who cares, if it was based on reality the girls would’ve gone to Blackpool (or the US equivalent) and they’d have been wearing high street not high end fashion! One thing we did notice however was that the chemistry seemed different in the sequel, dare we say it, forced. Obviously the elaborate situation in which the girls found themselves i.e. out in the desert riding camels, was far removed from their normal filming routine in New York. But there was still something not quite right in the sequel film, as if the spark had fizzled a little between the foursome. We have to remember though that the actresses have very different lives off screen. SJP is a mother, Kim Cattrall is busy doing theatre and we have to respect the fact that these women have spent a lot of time in each others pockets, so there’s little wonder the chemistry wasn’t quite the same in the second film (even us devout SATC followers have to admit that).
We must be grateful however for the 12 years of Sex and the City we have had, that’s 94 episodes and the two films of course, so maybe it is time for the girls to hang up the Manolos and concentrate on other areas of their lives. We’re not saying that we wouldn’t be delighted if the girls changed their minds and a third film was to come about to conclude as a trilogy but until then we have the box set, the first film on DVD and are eagerly awaiting the release of the second film.
