Sex And The City The Movie (2008) R - 4 Stars

For anyone who is a fan of the Sex and The City HBO series, you'll love this movie as well. At least speaking from a woman's point of view, the movies gives a deep insight into the feelings of finding and loosing love. I was not disappointed with the movie as I was skeptical the writers would be able to turn the series into a movie so easily after four years of it's ending. But I think it felt like the good old days glued to the set of another episode.

Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) stars once again as the writer from Manhattan, New York that talks to other woman about love. With a few books under her belt, she is finally with the man of her dreams, Mr Big (Chris Noth), and living the dream life she had always dreamed about with him. But problems arise when they try and take their relationship to the next level.

Charlotte (Kristin Davis) is still in love and happily married to her sweetie Harry Goldenblatt (Evan Handler), and they have adopted a little Chinese princess, Lily. Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) is still married to Steve (David Eigenberg ) and living with their son in Brooklyn. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) is living her dream in California with her wealthy TV star / live-in boyfriend of 10 years, Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis), and trying to not give into her sexual fantasies urges with the boy next door.

But when Carrie is left alone at the alter, the girls need to regroup together and pick her up out of her stooper. In doing so, they all discover what is the right thing to do in their own lives to move on and live better. Sometimes you have to decide which is better, having nothing but your sanity, or having it all and living insane.
