SJP Hopes For Sex And The City 3, We Try To Convince Her Otherwise

60585234

As a longtime fan of Sex and The City, we’re actually really disappointed to hear that Sarah Jessica Parker recently said she hopes to make a third movie. Look, I loved the series and I liked the first film (and watch it whenever it’s on HBO), but this sequel was a giant turd and I really don’t think a third movie is in the best interest of the franchise. Here are a few reasons why (minor spoilers ahead!):

1. The Puns

Okay, we’re all used to Carrie Bradshaw and her clever-and-sometimes-cringey puns. But this movie was chock full of lazy writing and terrible puns that actually made me slap my forehead in disgust a couple times. “Abu Dhabi Doo!”, “I’m going through a mid-wife crisis” and camel toe jokes after Charlotte falls off an actual camel? Michael Patrick King should be ashamed of himself, those aren’t funny, they’re just dumb.

2. Can’t Touch This

Again, we’re used to Carrie and Co. being fashion forward but by our count there were about three pairs of Hammer pants in this film and in 2010, that’s three pair too many. And that says nothing of Carrie’s crimped wedding hair. If costume designer Pat Field keeps pushing the envelope like this, the envelope is gonna start to push back.

3. Everything Ties Up In A Little Designer Bow

The beauty of the series was that Carrie’s life was a mess and usually she made mistakes that were relatable and made her sympathetic. In this film, she is so shrewish and annoying (I don’t know anyone that would turn down a gift of a flat-screen TV and get all pissy at their husband for buying it – remember, in this movie money is no object so it clearly wasn’t something that broke the bank) and she morphed into the least likable character of the bunch. But in the end, Carrie learned to love the TV, Miranda conveniently quit her old job and got a new one she loooved, Charlotte’s children became well-behaved, and Samantha f***ed a guy on a Hummer just like the olden days, despite being old and hormonal*. And they all lived happily ever after. Sure.

4. No Sex and No City

Aside from the aforementioned sex on a car hood, there wasn’t actually any sex in the film at all, just a bunch of stereotypes of frazzled women and the men who put up with them. And since the bulk of the film was set in Abu Dhabi and not New York, we missed that element of the show – both movies actually have taken these women out of the city and thrown them together on vacation – that’s fine, but why ruin a good thing the series had going? A million girls moved to the city because of this series, why deny them the opportunity to gaze on Carrie’s life in present day New York? It would definitely be more fun.

5. *Speaking of Old

As for the age thing, these women have proven that they’re all beautiful and stylish but this film lit them to look like they had wrinkles and bags under their eyes, not even trying to flatter them. We couldn’t throw these gals a bone and gotten them some good lighting?

Am I the only one that thinks that a third movie would be a huge mistake? I, and all my friends, actually kept saying that we planned to see this movie despite its awful reviews because we love the franchise…but I’m pretty certain after seeing this desert disaster that I wouldn’t spend money on a third movie. Not even if Liza Minelli made another cameo.

Big Box Office Fail For Sex And The City 2

60578342

Looks like America didn’t get Carried away this time around. Sex and the City 2 had a disappointing opening weekend roping in far fewer moviegoers than the first installment two years ago. The first SATCH hauled in $ 56.8 million during the opening weekend, while SATC 2 has brought in a more lean $ 32.1 million. Including the $14.2 million it made on Thursday, the sequel has made $ 46.3 mill which still falls way below the first time the girls hit the big screen.

No number one spot either, to ease bruised egos. That went to Shrek Forever After, which stayed the number one film for the second weekend in a row with a $43.3 million weekend rake-in.  Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda might want to rethink their next adventures, if any at all.

Peaches Geldof Channels Alexis Carrington At Sex And The City Premiere

SPL183796_009

We understand that the red carpet, especially at the premiere of a fashion-centric film like Sex And The City 2, is a place to take risks. It’s just that there are fashion risks, and then there are fashion don’ts. And we’re thinkin’ Peaches Geldof and her pouf-shouldered dress are a don’t with a capital D, where the D also stands for Dynasty. Geldof’s dress looks like it came straight out of the closet of Joan Collins during her reign as queen bitch of the 1980′s soap. The major differences between their looks though, is that Joan would never leave the house without a heavily teased updo, and she would have eased up on the Crest Whitestrips.

The 12 Sexiest Movies You Should See This Summer (And Follow With A Cold Shower)

540

June is just around the corner, which means hot temps, the occasional sunburn, and a major influx of movie releases. Many of us will beat the heat by noshing on some popcorn in a overly-air conditioned theater, but in the sea of blockbuster hopefuls, what’s worth our $12.50? What packs the heat, without causing pit stains? Considering the sex appeal of the stars, steaminess of the story, and cling of the wardrobe, we’re counting down a dozen flicks that’ll sizzle the summer months, from lukewarm to piping hot.

12. Sex and the City 2, May 27th: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis hit the Middle East in 5-inch heels, high-slitted designer dresses, and sparkly turbans. Beefcake and baby-less Aiden returns to tempt Mrs. Big.

SATC 2 Stars Can’t Decided If They Hate Each Other Or Not

kim-catrall-sarah-jessica-parker

Sarah Jessica Parker opened up about the catfights on the set of Sex and the City 2, saying,”Sometimes feelings get hurt”. Even when you’re wearing vintage Halston, apparently! SJP finally addressed the constant reports of hardcore rivalry between the four ladies that have stuck around from when they were filming Sex and the City 2. She told Marie Claire, “When you’re on set, you’re working 90-hour weeks, you’re never home, you’re exhausted. There are times when all of us have been sensitive and sometimes feelings get hurt.” She added. “But I don’t have any regrets about how I’ve treated people.”

Cynthia Nixon agrees, saying that there have been ups and downs, but  enmity between the fab four doesn’t exist. “It hasn’t always been smooth sailing. But the idea that we’re somehow adversarial is ludicrous.” She added that the ladies do hang out off set too, “We go to the theatre together or just go to one of our houses for dinner.”

Kristen Davis addressed rumors that she refused to have dinner with Kim Cattrall while filming in Morocco: “There was a very strange piece in one of the tabloids that said Kim and I would eat in the restaurant of our hotel and not sit together, which cracks me up. When I would get back from the set, I would go to the gym and get room service.  I’m not a put-on-decent-clothes-and-go-to-the-hotel-restaurant person. But Kim is. The story was that we don’t like each other. Ridiculous.”

Cattrall says much of the same but denies a bitter rift, “Nineteen-hour workdays are stressful, whether you’re driving a truck, working in a coal mine or on a set and trying to be your brightest at 4 o’ clock in the morning.  But there’s a camaraderie that happened through all of that…The chemistry among the four of us is very strong.”

Okay so what we get from the gals is: we’re not BFF but we make do! Fair enough.

Liza Minnelli Talks “Sex And The City 2″

Liza-Minnelli

We can’t wait to bust out a couple of cosmos for this one! Liza Minnelli, who makes an amazing cameo in the highly anticipated Sex and the City 2, thinks that the movie is going to be a “blast.” She’s in good company; also popping into the movie are Penelope Cruz and Miley Cyrus.

Miz Minnelli sparkles in her sing-and-dance role (it’s all in the SATC2 trailer) and reveals this, “[It] was so much fun! It’s a wonderful number. We had a blast..It’s rock and roll. Everything is moving! And I just got a whole new knee, so I can promise you everything is moving!”  Can’t wait to see Liza shake things up!

Leona, J-Hud Will Right Fergie’s Wrong On Sex And The City 2 Soundtrack

leona-lewis-jennifer-hudson

VH1 Divas Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis have been confirmed as artists on the upcoming Sex and the City 2 soundtrack. The news comes as a relief to all of us who suffered through Fergie‘s atrocious “Labels or Love,” which was the title track on the movie’s first soundtrack. You remember – it was that nauseating jam that mixed the show’s opening theme music with designer references and a beat a 6 year old produced on Garage Band. It was so bad it probably made Carrie cringe.

The soundtrack will also included a new T-Pain produced Cee-Lo track (auto-tune it up, please!) and two covers: Alicia Keys doing “Rapture” by Blondie and Liza Minelli busting out her version of Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies.” Yes you heard that right: Liza wants you to put a ring on it. Even if the movie stinks, it’s producing what will surely be the greatest cover of all time.

Brooklyn Is A Shimmery Desert In New SATC 2 Poster

satc2_poster

We gathered from the latest Sex and the City 2 trailer that the fab foursome takes a trip to Abu Dhabi and miraculously doesn’t sink in the sand while strutting in 5″ heels. What confuses us about the just-released poster is A) why Sarah Jessica Parker is carrying giant reading glasses in the desert and B) how the reflection in said spectacles possibly contains the Empire State Building. Is the plot of the sequel actually some post-apocalyptic nightmare that strands the women across the East River during a terrible drought where only glitter rains from the sky? God, we hope so.

Sex And The City: 2 Trailer Looks Every Bit As Ridiculous As We Hoped

We’ve been anticipating the ridiculousness of Sex And The City: 2 (Desert Boogaloo) for months now. It’s the movie we love to hate, for so many reasons. Don’t get us wrong, we’re most likely going to line up to see it when it comes out, and we love a good Sarah Jessica Parker pun, but the franchise is getting more insane by the minute. A plot that takes the girls to Abu Dhabi? Cameos by Miley Cyrus and Liza Minelli? Carrie Bradshaw on a camel? Let’s hope this is the film where the creators decide to draw the line and realize they have taken the glitz and Jimmy Choos about as far as they can.

Sarah Jessica’s Twins Are Perfectly Styled

sjp-twins

Sex And The City 2 star Sarah Jessica Parker brought her lil’ bebes outside for a peak at the paparazzi that hound mommy wherever she goes. We have no idea which kid is which, but Tabitha and Marion are equally presh, and frankly, dressed better than their Ugg boot-clad mother. Look at those matching coats and baby mary-jane shoes. Squeeeeeeee, we say! More pics of the wee Broderick babes below.
