For those who have not yet seen the movie and plan on it: DO NOT READ THIS!
Now, I think a huge reason why I didn't find this movie so horrible is because I went in with hugely low expectations based on the trailer, so the few funny and likable parts of the film to me were a huge success. But yes, I do agree with many of those out there, it's still shameful compared to the series, and even the last film. I don't even understand why they even bothered with a sequel, to me that's beating a dead horse and tarnishing the success that is Sex and the City.
This movie was trite, there, I've said it, now on with the review.
What I liked about it:
I loved seeing the girls, and it was especially nice seeing Miranda far more chipper and positive than I've ever seen her, but without it taking away from her personality.
I also enjoyed the few funny moments, like their camel ride and where Charlotte had camel toe. And also, albeit really silly and more boy-like humour, the nanny with no bra.
And most of the fashion was ridiculous, but I always thought that even in the series and last movie, the fashion has always been ridiculous, even living in NYC, I don't know why anyone would wear 90% of the things they are costumed in. The ultimate article of outrageously ugly fashion in this film is Samantha's spiky, glittery, shoulder armor during their karaoke moment. I mean seriously, what the hell is that??! Seems far more dangerous than anything else. And for the longest time, Carrie's wardro...

...nd Smith and Aiden were the worst of it, I just didn't see the major point of it. Smith only showed up to provide a reason for the girl to jet off to Abu Dhabi, and Aiden just to appease what I think are some SATC fans previous wishes, but it just didn't fit all that well, other than to now ruin the image of Aiden as a possible jerk that would cheat on his wife and mother of his 3 children. Oh, and let's not forget Stanford and Anthony, I thought it was a little lame that they end up marrying each other, it's just so cliché (not to mention the appearance of Liza Minnelli singing "Put a Ring on it").
So there you have it, and it looks like in fact that my opinion isn't really all that different from mostly everyone else. I think the only difference is that I got over the fact that SATC 2 was gonna bomb since the trailer and was able to enjoy the few tidbits of fun.

- Many ask…” What is sociology?”, sociology is the study of human groups and societies, and is also a social science. Same sex-marriage is a very well-known sociological topic in the society today.

- The Great Gatsby By F. Scott Fitzgerald The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is by far one of the most interesting yet congested books I have ever read. I feel as if the story is shifting as soon as I was able to tell what was happening. One idea that was constant was the themes, symbols and motifs used throughout. Love and the seduction of money, to me, were the most influential themes that I noticed in the book. Instead of picking them apart I would like to combine them. They worked in synchronicity, together, to define the environment, characters, style of life during that time.... [tags: Literature Review]

- Captivating, suspenseful, riveting, exhilarating are only a few of the words that I would use to describe the movie Taken.

- Second edition of Sex in the City franchise by Michael Patrick King as a director. The gals are going into their 40’s or in Samantha’s case her 50’s. Female still looks fabulous, but needing a break from the daily life, they are invited to Abu Dhabi to experience the newest hotel in hopes that Samantha’s PR firm will endorse it. Major part of the movie follows the ladies on their awkward vacation in the rigid Middle East and the life lessons learned there. Sex in the City Two misses the mark in its latest attempt at the box office by choosing the location of Abu Dhabi of the United Arab Emirates, scripting a lazy floundering plot line and a movie length that could have been trimmed by more t...

- Human Trafficking: Lit Review Human trafficking has existed for centuries. Throughout history, there have been recorded accounts of slave trade for labor and sex, even dating back to biblical times.
