Well, Lea’s out for Sex and the City tonight. After that, she might see a movie. Ha, ha!
So am I the only straight guy on the planet who wants to see it? The media coverage certainly supports such a supposition.
I loved the show. I thought the writers and players did a marvelous job of portraying growth in the characters over the six seasons, while keeping them the same people. Also, it was wickedly funny. Miranda was/is my favorite—mostly for her cynical wit, but also because she was so genuine and vulnerable whenever she finally did allow herself emotion. Plus, what a cutie.
I’ve not yet read any reviews, but I suspect the film will hew fairly closely to the show’s format. Its rhythm was remarkably consistent, and as well as it worked, I doubt they’ll get squirrelly with it. Plus, it’s not like the big screen opens any content avenues that weren’t available on HBO.
I’ll probably wait for the DVD. I don’t usually go to the cinema unless I’m pretty sure the big picture and sound will add considerably to the experience, and I just don’t see that here. The show wasn’t dripping with car chases and explosions, after all.
