In a word: Meh.
It felt like a really dragged out, overlong episode of the tv show. So I guess if you were a fan of the series this will be just right. Me? I liked the series just fine, BUT I could never finish a whole episode in one sitting. The pacing always made each episode seem longer, so I'd pause the show (ah, the joy of watching DVDs) and return to it after a break. Movie theatres don't allow such breaks, and I think my brain went into overload and shut down halfway through the movie.
Lovely clothes. Gorgeous shoes.
Embarrassing youthful character introduced as Carrie's personal assistant. LV obsessions I'll never understand (those purses are BUTT-UGLY people!) and the assistant's rapturous exclamations over a particularly hideous bag hurt my head. She fulfilled her token sidekick duties well.
I forget how needy and crazy Carrie is. Man, she's insane. Or maybe Big is, to want to marry her in the first place. Charlotte's an entirely different sort of crazy, but I love her. I think I would totally be her except for the kid-loving aspect. Also the dogs wouldn't happen.
I wonder if I would have benefited if I had seen more than just the first 1.5 seasons. Yet, I had no trouble following along, so I guess it wasn't necessary.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG movie. Probably Netflix-worthy, but don't rush out to see it in theatres.
