Starring: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon and Chris Noth
Story: Two years after the first Sex and the City film, Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda are still friends struggling through the ups and downs of love, life and shopping from fabulous locales.
Rated: R for some strong sexual content and language
Bottom Line: There are a few laughs to be had and some poignant thoughts on early motherhood but SEX AND THE CITY 2 is a bloated and contrived mess that drags, annoys and lingers way too long in its almost 2 ½ hour running time. I enjoyed the first movie (B+) but this sequel felt so soulless, forced and limp that it, ironically, needed a dose of cinematic Viagra. Hmmm, but then the movie might have lasted 4-6 hours – and we’d have to contact our doctor and…oh, forget it.
