Skip to comments.The death of Sex and the City

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.
