Sex and the City, The Movie ... TOTALLY worth the wait!

Well, I have spoken pretty unfavorably about the hype and press of this movie before today.

I take it all back. Okay ... most of it!

I just walked in from seeing THE movie, and I can tell you that it was VERY worth the wait! I was waiting to see it ... for things to die down a bit, for the crowds to be smaller, for a good time to go, and for a few other friends to go with. Molly, Michelle, and her friend Molly and I met up tonight at Town Center. Molly and I got to the theater about 30 minutes before it started, and we didn't get there a moment too soon! The theater had to be sold out, and I was glad that we managed to find what were probably the last 4 seats together in the small theater! There were groups of girlfriends (really that was the whole theater ... only 1 poor man who checked his e-mail the whole movie) that were split up all over the place!

You could tell that everyone was decked out to see the movie: cute clothes, cute shoes, LOTS of perfume, and it was so loud before the movie, we could hardly hear each other!

So ... the movie!

It really was better than I thought it was going to be. The first 10 minutes are sort of a re-cap of what led the girls to where they are today. I started crying at the very beginning and didn't stop ... shocking, I know!

Sarah Jessica Parker had something amazing like 84 wardrobe changes, and each one was better than the last! Michelle and I literally gasped out loud at some of the beautiful clothes! I'm not going to give any spoilers away, but if you have seen it, and want to chat about it ... let me know. I'm even willing to go again just to see what else I can pick up on the second time around!

Pin It!

Tell the truth ... should I go? I'llgo again with you, but it will have to wait a week or so -- too busy.

It's up to you! It is a great girlfriend movie, but if you're not caught up on the 6 seasons from HBO, you might not enjoy it as much.
It is also pretty risque ... so much so that I avoided my room mother who happened to be in the same theater as we were!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the movie!! I am so glad you loved it as well. I also agree with you about it being risque at parts...I was there with my mom, two aunts and cousin Jennifer (19 years old) and felt a bit uncomfortable! By the way...about 27 dresses...hated it and don't recommend it!

Any senseless violence? How about drive-by shootings? Is Will Farrell asa funny as I've heard? Are the costumes (outfits) for Dakota Fanning too mature?
