We all love the Sex
This past Saturday night, I finally saw "Sex and the City 2" ... and I loved it! I was happy to see the girls together again and they were just as witty and wonderful as ever. And no doubt fashionable and fierce! This time around there was a little less emotional drama and a lot more fun... though, there still were a few tear-jerker and "oh-my-god, what?!" moments. Despite some not-so-nice comments made by critics, I walked out of the theater very pleased with the flick and I know some of my fellow SATC lovers feel the same way.
Although I had a grand idea of getting a bunch of friends together to go get drinks and see the movie, those plans fell through. One busy, one sick. Most of my local friends aren't even big fans of the series or have never seen it (I know, can you believe that?!). All the girls that I bonded with while watching and falling in love with the show in D.C. (when I had my internship there, junior year of college) live far far away, in Seattle or Boston.
So it ended up being just me and my bestie, Marielle. But we did indulge in two martinis beforehand! A Cosmo for me, of course, and a Raspberry Lemon Drop for her.
Marielle is one of those who has only seen one or two episodes of SATC, so I had to fill her in a bit before the show. But, I have to say, the best part of the night was hearing how much she enjoyed the film. She was literally laughing out loud at certain parts, right along with me. She admitted that she didn't think she was going to like it going in, but she ended up loving it. "Who knew Sex and the City was so funny?" she said. I knew! And now she does, too.
I told her that now I have to catch her up on the whole series and then watch the first film. A little backwards but she's game! Good thing I have that big, beautiful pink folder with every episode from every season, plus a copy of the film on DVD.
And a martini shaker. That's a must when it comes to watching SATC, am I right?
So, did you see the film? What did you think?
