Fans of the TV series Sex and the City will absolutely adore the movie version.  The four actresses who  found fame with the series reprise their roles.  Sarah Jessica Parker is Carrie Bradshaw, Vogue columnist and bestselling author.  Kristin Davis is Charlotte, now happily married to Harry and raising their adopted daughter Lily.  Kim Catrall is Samantha, now living in Los Angeles and managing her super successful hot boyfriend Smith.  Cynthia Nixon is Miranda, juggling career and family with her marriage on the rocks.

The story begins when Carrie gets engaged to Big (Chris Noth).  Fashion is the fifth star of the movie, designer labels abound.

You don’t need to have watched the TV show to pick up on what happens in the movie – it’s all explained in exposition.  It is rated R, for some pretty explicit sex scenes.

Friendship is the overall theme.  It helps to be a fan, as the movie runs 2 hours and 20 minutes.
