Sex and The City 2

You seen it?

I had a little dinner date with Heather and an imperative meeting to see this.
Disappointed? Yes. Will I watch it again? Probably.

I knew the sequel wouldn't be near as good as the first. It never is. I LOVED SATC. I don't watch movies over and over again. It bugs me. I watched that movie in the theater twice, on the way to Italy twice, in Italy twice, on the way home twice and have watched it a million times since then. I cry, I laugh, I drool over the fashion, jewelry, accessories, Carrie's closet, that penthouse apartment and swoon over those precious babies; Lily and Rose. To me, it was fantastic. And what pregnant lady doesn't want to look like Charlotte for her baby shower?

Here are the things I found absolutely wrong with this movie.
1. New York wasn't in near enough of the scenes. NY plays the 5th character, in my opinion.

2. The fashion was, as usual, over the top, but I didn't find any of it all that great. The white dress and fab, gold aviators Carrie sports at the very beginning are the best of the whole movie.

3. I'm over Samantha and her sex adventures. She's going through menopause and still having porn-star sex.

4. Miranda was absolutely pointless in this movie. Her lines were corny and didn't offer much.

5. I don't want to see or hear karaoke. Ever. It makes me want to pull the sheets up (and for those that know me really well, you know that's the worst feeling I can possibly have).

6. The men needed to be in this one more. A lot more.

7. Especially this one.

8. And the ending. Oh the ending. I won't spoil it for those that haven't seen it, but watch it and you will know what I'm talking about.

What did you think? Am I totally off base?

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!

I spent some time yesterday reflecting on my Grandfather Kalinowski, who served in WWII on the USS Houston in the Pacific. His ship was bombed and after surviving he spent 4 years in a Japanese Prisoner of War Camp. As I floated in the pool my mind couldn't even fathom what life must have been like for him. His sacrifice paved the path for a beautiful life of freedom for me. Here's a huge thank you to men and women that serve this country to protect our freedom everyday.
