Rating:
R
Sex and the City 2, set two years after the wedding that almost wasn't, this sequel finds gal pals Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Samantha (Kim Cattrall) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) embarking on a much-needed vacation to exotic Abu Dhabi. They're still the same soul mates despite responsibilities of motherhood and marriage, but a new romance for Samantha and a little thing called Aidan, Carrie's ex, keep things interesting.

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    Variety Brian Lowry

    Part of the action occurs in the desert, which inadvertently proves apt, since the oases of enjoyable moments -- and they do exist -- suffer from being spaced too widely in what's ...

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    The satire is sagging, the irony's atrophied and the funny is flabby.

  • 10

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    The ugly smell of unexamined privilege hangs over this film like the smoke from cheap incense.

  • The second movie ends up being the worse of the two, trying to cling to the usual flair (but failing a little)

    6.5
    "Sex and the City 2" is, in my opinion, a somewhat weaker continuation to the tv series than the first movie was.



    The story attempts to revolve around all the four women, but ends up coming back to Carrie over and over (she is the narrator/main character, but it gives an unbalanced outcome). All the women have their issues in this one, like always, but only one of them fits in the limelight. (Samantha does her best to beat Carry to it, but in my opinion it was taken a bit too far, the outcome repetitive and somewhat offending, even when it was in character for Samantha).



    The movie starts strong - with another wedding! - but after that things get a little stale. That's the point, I suppose, since Carry is struggling in her marriage and it seems everyone needs a break.



    The trip to Abu Dhabi was a recurring theme from the previous film, yet it managed to bring some action into the slow "middle" of the story. Despite this, the movie feels drawn-out, then speeds towards the end in order to resolve the last of its issues.



    A thing to watch among "Sex and the City" fans, but I feel like they could have done better. (Like, there is no need to go abroad to make a story, but somehow that has become the theme with the movies. Maybe it is an active, conscious separation from the TV show that rarely left the streets of Newmoreless
