HBO's smash hit Sex and the City gets the big screen adaptation four years after the TV series finale. Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mr. Big (Chris Noth) have settled into co-habitation with their 'Page Six' worthy wedding looming not-so-brightly. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) has her sex drive on hold in Los Angeles, while Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) gets some bad news regarding her love life across the bridge in Brooklyn. Leaving Charlotte to struggle with motherhood as her closest friends troubles mount.
I am an admitted Sex and the City neophyte and am pleased to say no worries to the throngs of equally clueless dudes. The film sums up the TV series in the first five minutes. Then kicks into the exposition like a bull at the rodeo. We've been threatened with quartering for releasing plot spoilers, so I'll remain mum on the supposed rumors. But, and this is the God's honest truth, every single person, cough - woman, who saw the film loved it. I'm talking effusive, gushing with praise, talk of Golden Globe nominations loved it. I'd guess the folks at New Line are loosening their money belts for some serious cash infusion at the box office.
The press event in New York can best be described as 'bring your baby to a junket day'. It was a bambino extravaganza as I deftly hurdled strollers all day. The kids were cute, the Cosmos (martinis)flowing, and the cast pumped to be back. Check out our cast interviews with Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Chris Noth, Jennifer Hudson, and writer /director Michael Patrick King below as they discuss the long road to the big screen, the chance for more Sex and the City, and what happens to the poor schmuck stupid enough to call Chris Noth 'Mr. Big' in public.
Sex and the City: The Movie brings the big city romance to theaters on May 30.
