So, Sex and the City 2 just came out. WOOPUDEEDOOH!!!!!! I never even saw the first one. The TV show itself was so nauseating, why would I spend 7 dollars to go watch that tripe in a theatre?
A few mornings ago, I was listening to a couple of ladies on the radio discussing this movie, and how great it was. They said that it would make for a great ladies' evening out. Hmmm....interesting. From what I recall, this movie was about nothing more than the sex lives of these 4 single women living in New York. Why would I be interested in watching that?!
The thing that gets me is that the show makes these women out to be such savvy, sophisticated individuals. Rubbish!!! I'd almost rather watch Girls Next Door...at least those girls aren't putting on some pseudo-sophisticated facade.
I'm not mch of a moviegoer anymore, but it just seems like most women-oriented movies these days are sending us the message that the women we are expected to look up to and idealize are immoral, materialistic, independent.
No thanks!! It's enough that HBO tortured us for ten seasons with Sex and the City -- must they REALLY make it into a cinematic enterprise as well?!
What are your thoughts?
