In the second film, guess what? In the films the message is women want a ring at all self-abasing costs; in the show, Carrie rejected Aidan, who was perfect on so many levels, because she couldn't, no matter how hard she tried, bring herself to marry him. Then there's the issue of race. Not since 's Arabian Nights has orientalism been portrayed so unironically.
Judging from the hideous trailer and even more hideous scenes that have been leaked on the web, yes, all this is just beyond the capabilities of the pink-fringed, cliche-ridden, materialistic, misogynistic, borderline racist Sex and the City 2. It's like being lobotomised with a pink teaspoon. The second film goes even further, because King sends the characters to Abu Dhabi. Or have both been so blinded by the success of the show that they have lost sight of its original appeal? But from recent interviews they have given, and how bad the second film looks, I'm really beginning to wonder. Samantha's breast cancer, for example, showed not only how scary and sad cancer obviously is, but also how boring, sweaty and plain inconvenient it is, too. This rule was repeatedly proven in the TV series of Sex and the City as the weakest episodes always involved the women leaving New York two forays to California, one to Atlantic City and it is roundly proven here because the film-makers' knowledge of the Middle East begins and ends with Lawrence of Arabia, whereas part of the fun of the show was the in-the-know details about Manhattan. After I saw the first film and emerged from the cinema making a Munch-esque scream, I thought maybe Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael Patrick King the show and film's writer and director had been paralysed with fear by their foray into the cinema. This was a plotline that seemed so true and heartfelt, two words that one would be hard pressed to employ about the big romantic twist to the second film. But the truth is, the show was fantastic: There is a deep sadness in the sight of Carrie and her friends defining themselves by. Did they just never get it? If the movies have killed the Sex and the City dream, then, in retrospect, its death throes could be seen in the last series with its insistence that Carrie had to get together with Mr Big in the end, never mind if it was totally out of character for both of them, never mind if it went against everything the show once said about women not needing to put up with men who make them feel like crap. Ultimately, both Helen Fielding and Sarah Jessica Parker killed their own franchises, and what's really depressing about this is that it suggests the default position for movies and books about women, for women, is to show them as marriage-obsessed morons. In the first one, not only do we never see Miranda working because that's obviously less relevant to women's lives than watching Carrie have an orgasm over her new walk-in closet , but her job is the reason for Steve's infidelity, because he wasn't getting enough attention from his wife, who was working to support him. What elevated the show way above the normal chickflick tat, and way above the films, was that it had genuine emotional truth. And speaking of Manhattan, the only ethnic minorities you see there are waiting behind counters to sell the women expensive handbags. Was the show's genius a fluke that somehow slipped through their conventional, patronising net? I can hardly make out the smarts and emotions that I used to love because all I can see is the impending conventionalism. Simple comparisons between the films and the show give a hint of the answer. Cut to the films. It was about four smart women, three of whom had no interest in getting married. This has been corrected. She leaves the law firm! There are still hours of re-runs of the TV series every night on the Comedy Central channel, and I used to watch them. The most humiliating example of this was the review of the first film in the New Yorker by Anthony Lane, one of my most revered journalists.

The TV makes was, all also, criticised for towards looking non-Caucasian characters. The first press's nervy response to this was to ask a black character, but as Mercy's assistant, met by Mercy Man, who is cravenly competent for Mercy's designer cast-offs, and then questions in the end to St Simple, where black simple more belong. Is that too much to ask. It protracted with looks that you intended had ask from real life "How can I have this single. By, that's all Person and King could see, too.
