Sex And The City is coming to the big screen in a feature film adaptation of the hit HBO television series. The film will follow the continuing adventures of the series four main characters-Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda- as they live their lives in Manhattan four years after the series ended. Stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin David and Cynthia Nixon are all on board to reprise their roles, while the film will be written and directed by Michael Patrick King, who executive produced the original television series. Additionally Chris Noth, David Eigenberg, Evan Handler and Jason Lewis will return as the women's love interests. Academy-Award winning actress Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) has also joined the cast of the film and will play Carrie Bradshaw's assistant, a new character to be introduced in the film.

Movie Review:

No, “Sex and the City” may not be for everyone. Straight guys are likely only to see this film under pain of death from their significant others. Me, every so often a guy has to sometime just let go and embrace, with dignity, the psyche of a woman to fully understand them. After watching this show, i still don't get the deal with shoes.

Through the eyes of a guy who has never seen a single episode, SATC was quite a dish to saviour. Just in case there are those wanting to be in the same boat, the producers of the much-awaited film version of the hit TV series remind fans with a quick recap at the start of the film where the four characters were at the point we left them when the series ended. Three years on, the two Ls are still carrying the storyline along: labels and love. In the first half-hour we're bombarded by so much brand placement that one might as well be witnessing an extended Vogue photo shoot brought to life.

In a nutshell, without any spoilers..much, romance columnist Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and her Mr. Big (Chris Noth) are so secure in their relationship that they set the big date. (Cue the designer wedding dress montage.)Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and husband Steve (David Eigenberg) are deep into Brooklyn domesticity. Sexpot Samantha (Kim Cattrall) is in Hollywood running the acting career of her hunky boytoy Smith (Jason Lewis). He's devoted to her, but Samantha - who is, essentially a frat boy with breasts - is starting to find the arrangement too confining. That leaves the adorably ditzy Charlotte (Kristin Davis), content in connubial bliss with her adoring chrome-domed Harry (Evan Handler) and their adorable adopted daughter.

Of course it can't go on like this or there would be no movie. And so writer/director Michael Patrick King tosses a variety of relationship grenades into our ladies' paths. No point in giving away any of the specifics here. Aside from a couple of plot developments, this movie never surprises. It plays exactly like an TV episode - which would be fine if the movie ran for 30 minutes. But it runs for 2 hours and 30 minutes, spreading out its laughs way too thin to turn around the suffocatingly melancholy tone. Thank heaven for Cattrall, whose tart-tongued delivery turns almost anything she says into comic gold.

Indeed, “Sex and the City” is at least partly fueled by its product placements and the sense that everyone in New York is fabulously and mysteriously rich. The dizzying sense of wealth is seen everywhere, but most especially in the nonstop clothes, jewelry and furniture sported by the four main characters. But don’t be worried by all the upscale affluence and opulence. Kudos to director/writer Michael Patrick King, very smartly has anticipated the current economic mood and that there’s a subtle surprise in the third act that addresses it.

Movie Rating:

(Strictly for fans, you'll definitely be Carried away)
