* Kyle Machlachlan plays Charlotte's husband Trey. The guy who plays Stanford plays a metalhead in one episode of the second series of TwinPeaks. But then Heather Graham shows up playing herself? And Stanford doesn't know what to talk to her about? How about kissing Charlotte's husband? I know I should just ignore this but it makes my head swim!

* In the second movie, how come the girls have no money to pay for one more night at the hotel in Abu Dhabi to at least properly pack, while by the time of the movie, Carrie is married to a wealthy financier and herself also a successful author, Samantha owns her successful PR company, Miranda was a lawyer before she quits, and Charlotte comes from a rich family and is also married to a lawyer? Not to mention, they all wear designer clothes all the time and they're going back to New York from Abu Dhabi in ''first class''.

* In the first movie it's made such a big deal that Miranda told Big he's crazy to get married after she found out Steve has cheated on her. Miranda thinks that may have been the reason Big ran out of the wedding, but... He was already married, well-aware of what that commitment entailed and his marriage to Natasha ended because he cheated on her with Carrie. Why would such a statement be the reason for cold feet, especially since if we are to take it as an example of failed marriage, then Harry and Charlotte's happy marriage counteracts that? The whole thing was played out as if Big was getting married for the first time (unless the movies retconned that) and had no idea what he was getting into.

* When Carrie has briefly met Aleksandr but hasn't yet begun dating him, he attempts to call her. Without listening to anything beyond "Hello", Carrie immediately dismisses the call as a "wrong number" without further questions and then hangs up. A few times. So does she genuinely believe that it's a wrong number despite it being the very distinct accent of a somewhat famous celebrity she'd met recently and yet somehow doesn't recognise over the phone, or is she preemptively giving all unanticipated callers the cold shoulder? I legit can't tell whety it's SJP's acting or the ambiguous script, but it's not entirely clear.

*** And in {{Glee}}, one of the characters' favorite musicals is Theatre/{{Wicked}} and her mother is played by Idina Menzel. It's really nothing more stand out than any other example of celebrity paradox.

** Obviously, it's not a big enough issue to mention in the movie or the series, but I actually think it would have been weird and not consistent with their characters if they had had Miranda and Steve change Brady's name after they got married. I can imagine Steve or someone else bringing it up as an idea, but then I imagine Miranda would point out that it would be silly to change his name just because other people aren't used to a child taking his mother's last name instead of his father's (when the parents are married). Also, it really meant a lot to Steve when Miranda gave Brady his name, so I feel like that symbolism would be more important to him than following convention.

I can imagine Steve or someone else bringing it up as an idea, wondering if they should change his name, but then I imagine Miranda would point out that it would be silly to change his name just because other people aren't used to a child taking his mother's last name instead of his father's (when the parents are married). Also, it really meant a lot to Steve when Miranda gave Brady his name, so I feel like that symbolism would be more important to him than following convention.convention and pressuring Miranda to conform.

** I think overall that Carrie's narration is about 50% column, 50% actual narration. She obviously mentions some people publically (Big and that politician, for example), but probably keeps other things hidden. The sheer length of her narration at times implies you couldn't fit all that in a newspaper column.
