My girlfriend has had yesterday's date circled on her mental calendar for over a year. Ever since the release date for Sex and the City 2 (SATC2) was announced she has brought up my obligation to see this movie with her. Random, out-of-the-blue reminders like "MAY 27th!" during the middle of a dinner last fall, or "You know what you're doing on May 27th!" as I shaved for work on a relatively cold January morning.
I have no way out of this. Too much build up to bail.
To give you and idea of how bad this will be (even worse than the show and the first movie)
From the James Berardinelli review from Reelviews:
"It's a three-ring circus of materialism, narcissism, and entitlement. These people are self-absorbed to the point where, unless you built a relationship with them during their television days, it's impossible to like them. The filmmakers not only sympathize with them, but laud their avarice and obsession with possessions. Sex and the City 2 is overloaded with product placements (all high-end, of course) and wallows in a cultural cesspool that some will find offensive."
Does this crap make anyone else physically ill? Really, I can't stand that some women actually model themselves after (or just wish they were like) the four despicable creatures from this show. These women are not role models they are soulless self-absorbed witches deluded into thinking themselves independent while they become more and more attached to the men in their lives, while spending $$$ on provactive clothing designed for women (at this point) 20 years younger and overpaying for fruity drinks in NY.
Board, I'm sorry, this won't be interesting to many of you but I'm dreading this afternoon (somehow, I was spared attending opening night) and I need to vent before my head explodes.
Finally, SJP is a horse.
