Skip to comments.The death of Sex and the City
Posted on 05/24/2010 5:44:16 AM PDT by C19fan
I'm not asking for much. I just don't want to be sick in my mouth. I don't want to leave the cinema feeling like I've paid £7.50 to be mocked, patronised and kicked in the face. I don't want to be filled with despair at Hollywood's increasing inability to conceive of women in comedic films as anything other than self-obsessed babies with breasts. And I don't, most of all, want to spend two hours watching dreams and memories from my youth being trampled into humiliating self-parody. Is that too much to ask?

The thing I don’t get about that show is Kristen Davis is the only one who is attractive. How are they supposed to be getting that much action? Are guys in NYC really that hard up?
Easy - Don’t buy a ticket!
When I lived there, they were ....
Heterosexually transmitted AIDS was a myth created by gays to elicit support for funding.
It happens, but it's very rare.
I read most (all I could tolerate) of the article and it made me glad I have never watched any of it.
My exposure to this little cultural artifact is somewhat limited. But what I have seen convinces me that this is a fantasy about 4 promiscuous gay men who live lives of great irresponsibility and enjoy having frequent sex with near strangers. I guess for marketing purposes they decided to hire actresses to play the gay men. I don’t see the appeal.
The show should actually be titled..."TRAMPS and The City"
I think she is pretty decent looking, definitely the best on that show. When she was in Couples Retreat she was 4th out of 4 for the female cast.
Favorite. Hm. I think I know more about this reviewer now than I care to.
You got the tone down right. After the first couple of shows - years ago! They all behaved like SLUTS. I like a good series with ‘sexy’ story lines, but this was total ‘in your face’ Slutty-ness! Left a real bad taste.
Here is the complete series story line:
- Woman goes on date, has dinner, sleeps with him.
- Woman goes on date, sleeps with him.
- Woman meets guy, sleeps with him.
Same woman - but different guys!
The show is called “Sex and the City.” Yet you seem surprised that the women are sluts.
Through 2007, about 175,000 AIDS cases in the US were heterosexually transmitted. That’s about 20% of the total. Internationally, the percentage of cases with heterosexual transmission is much higher. I’m not sure “rarely” is quite the right word.
No, Sex and the City isn’t Dumas. It’s dumb-ass.
I saw the trailer for SIC while waiting for Robin Hood to start (if you haven’t seen Robin Hood, yet, go see it! It’s a Conservative film for Tea Partiers). Anyway, the plot of the new SIC movie seems to be that these sluts go to Abu Dhabi for more sex.
No burkas, no male escorts...I do see them wearing a hijab in a couple of scenes, but that’s about it. Lot’s of hooking up with guys, though.
Nope, this isn’t about women, this is about gay men hiring women to act out their own (the gay men’s) fantasies.
Ah, Sarah Jessica Parker....a number of years ago, she said Rush Limbaugh should be taken off the air. Another “tolerant” liberal heard from.
Hey, they made a bunch of money off Seabiscuit.
P.S. - SIC = Sluts In the City (I forgot to mention that in my previous comment)
I still cannot fathom why anyone would watch that crap
Of course I.V. drug users transmit it when they share their needles, but you are correct. Heterosexual AIDS is a myth.
Much like the queers, Africa realized that it could get on the AIDS bandwagon, by classifying everything from Malaria to Pregnancy as AIDS.
Just the title of the show turned me off. I’m not a prude but I don’t like NYC, big cities or watching 4 middle aged sluts in action. So I have never watched one episode.
Gosh, I used to dream of being a teacher or IRS Commissioner, not of being a whore.
No surprise here. Just that it should have a more ‘correct’ title (TRAMPS and the City) to characterize the storyline.
That's funny! My entire exposure to SIC is watching the trailer while waiting for Robin Hood to start!! I too thought RH was a very fine movie.
You dreamed of being IRS commissioner?! Whores are more honorable.
With an apartment in the Watergate, and several cats. That was a long time ago.
Sure, but Seabiscuit had talent.
The CDC tracks IV transmissions separately from heterosexual transmissions. The 175,000 heterosexual transmissions excludes IV drug users. Do you have a better source than the CDC? Convincing heterosexuals that there is no risk of AIDS transmission from sexual intercourse is not a very good idea.
I read an article recently that many cases of “heterosexual” AIDS transmission to men disappeared when the researchers classified the cases as homosexual *for men who had anal STDs*.
Kim is pretty easy on the eyes, the other two, not so much. Horse face and lesbo, nah.
That doesn’t exactly qualify as a reliable source.
She’s a snotty b***h too, and a major Obowma butt kisser.
Yeah, that line stuck out to me, too. Thankfully, my wife doesn’t care about that show, so I’m spared.
Sex in the City:
4 Gay Men in Manhattan who’s roles are played by women.
That’s effectively this show, period.
Assinine looking “so called fashions” and ridiculous banter. Also, someone should tell carrie when she is not on the set that it is time to put the fantasy behind and move back into the real world. I’ve seen photos of her in mags etc and she looks ridiculous. Totally skinny to the point of sickly and wearing things best left to the YOUNG.
The CDC also admits that it has no accurate way of diagnosing how the person contracted AIDS and that self identification was inaccurate upon closer study.
AIDS would be FAR more widespread if it wasn't for the fact that it's transmitted only though the most unusual activities.
Considering the amount of money the Federal Government spends (thought to be about 2 billion a year) on this rare and highly avoidable disease, people should at least know that those infected with it are going out of their way to get it.
I think I’ll rest my case.
Rush is still on the air after 20 years. Is well respected, brilliant, truthful, honorable and knows more about this country than silly jessica will ever know about anything.
Let’s see how long she remains in the public eye after this flop. She might be a flop too along with this silly movies but...Rush Limbaugh would NEVER say she should be taken out of movies. That is the difference between a conservative and a liberal. Time to get off the bandwagon jessica of when it was popular to bash bush. just gave you more press was all and your face on the news. Now whatcha gonna do? Movie tanked and in spite of the creams, skin treatments, fake this and fake that...you are STILL aging just like the rest of us. Hey, here’s an idea. Try behaving like an adult from here on in instead of a silly teenager with bad fashion sense.
clown maybe? No movie start by no stretch of the imagination.
Perhaps the statistics are skewed by those who won’t admit how they got the disease.
I can’t understand how this woman is a movie star...
There is no accounting for taste.

It’s simply information, to take or leave.
Saaay...the Belmont Stakes are coming up next month. How do you think she’ll do?
That line would make me sick, I could not applaud it.
