| I had such high hopes...
I thought, this is a sure-fire winner - the series was brilliant: funny, romantic, insightful, and we were left wanting more - ergo... great movie. What I got instead was sappy, uninspired writing; I actually rolled my eyes a couple of times, and I love chick flicks! These characters would never utter some of those lines. After developing such strong characters over the course of the series, someone fell asleep behind the wheel and completely short changed the viewers.

Also, the movie is messy, trying to cram way too much into the alloted time, ending up with shallow plots all the way through. The only character plot line I believed was Samantha's. I missed the men in this movie, someone sucked the very life out of them. And finally, Jennifer Hudson's role could be neatly snipped out of the movie without it making a difference. I love her, but the role as written is way too cliché'd for even a fine actor like herself to make any sense out of.

Saving graces: Kim Cattrall's performance and delivery, the fashion and the moments between the girls.

Trivia

Carrie has the same cell phone as she did in Sex and the City (1998). To show how much time had passed, the producers added tape to it to make it seem worn.


Quotes

Carrie Bradshaw: Year after year, twenty-something women come to New York City in search of the two L's: labels and love.


Goofs

When Carrie and Big reunite in the closet, Big's clock shows the time as 7:30. However, Carrie arrives after 5:00 pm, and they have to leave by 6:00 pm for the new tenants.


Alternate Versions

An extended version version exists. While it shortens a few shots, collectively, by about 2 seconds, it adds about 5 minutes. The major additions are - 1. When Carrie tries on her outfits before she leaves her apartment, the rest of the girls, including Lily, try on her outfits as well. 2. Right before Carrie leaves the apartment, she disconnects the computer. 3. Carrie walks through the Mexican house alone for a bit. 4. When Miranda find her new apartment, she goes in, looks around and tell some guy that she is interested in it. 5. Following the scene where Samantha and Smith have sex and talk about Samantha feeling distanced, she and Carrie talk on the phone - Carrie is using a public phone - and Samantha tells her she will be coming much less to New York in order to take care of her relationship with Smith and Carrie is surprised. 6. Following the scene where Carrie buys the Vogue issue, she meets with Charlotte and they go trick-and-treating together with Harry and Lily and a neighbor shows her condolences, which makes Carrie wear a mask for the next door. 7. Following the scene where she types "Love..." on her laptop, Stanford calls and invites her to a party where he is bored and she declines.
