After the blockbuster success of the first movie 2 years ago, it was inevitable that a sequel would follow. And while the reviews have been quite harsh and many may feel that it's just "more of the same", my response is: "So what?". If you're a fan of the hit TV series, you should by now know what the general tone of the movie would be. If you hated the series, then obviously this movie wasn't meant for you to enjoy.
It's 2 years after the events in the first movie, with Carrie and Big settling into domestic marital bliss, but soon Carrie starts to resent the "routine domesticism" and longs for more excitement and fun with her husband. But instead, he enjoys sitting on the couch, ordering take-out and watching old black & white movies. Charlotte is struggling with being a parent to two young girls. Especially when the youngest is continually crying and she soons finds herself longing for freedom from parenthood, if only for a while. Miranda is stuck in a great job, but with a boss who continually demeans and despises her, even though she sacrifices way too much family time in dedication to her work.
All three of them soon get the perfect opportunity to unwind, when Samantha gets invited to Abu Dhabi in the Middle East, with regards to promoting a new hotel. She invites her girls, and they all set off in search of a break from New York City. They of course get involved in hilarious mishaps (notably Samantha and her insatiabale sexual appetite), as well as offering some wry insights into Middle Eastern customs with regards to women and how they are viewed.
Many were complaining that taking the girls out of "The City" (New York) was a bad move, but I saw it as a refreshing change of direction. And what I enjoyed about the plot was the semi-serious look it took at modern issues regarding marriage, parenthood, and even America's outlook on the Middle East. There was much less nudity this time around, but some of the jokes were alot funnier. And while the movie may not be to everyone's liking, it certainly knows how to please it's devoted fans, and I found it in some respects to be better than the first movie.
