Film: Sex and the City

"Two years of bad business and this bullshit economy and I am done. We need to go somewhere rich."
Samantha, in Sex and the City 2.

So far, two films based on the popular HBO series Sex and the City, starring the Four Girl Ensemble of now fortysomething ladies, following their lives after the shows.

The reviews for the films range from mixed to extremely negative, with the second instalment having attracted quite a bit of ire from both critics and the general audience.

The first Sex and the City film was released in 2008, and the second in 2010.
Both movies provide examples of the following tropes:

  • Costume Porn: Though by the time the second film was released, well into the recession, this particular aspect began to lose its charm.
  • Cringe Fuel: From the freefall in the quality of Puntastic humour ("Lawrence of my Labia", anyone?) to the truly awful scene where Samantha simulates fellatio on a hookah pipe, topped off by Samantha's grabbling on the ground for her condoms in a street market in front of shocked Middle Easterners, the second film contains many moments worthy of an epic eye-roll - and some that are best watched through a gap in one's fingers.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble
