Sex and the City 2

Worst. Movie. Ever.

Sex and the City 2 is getting universally bad reviews. It’s hard to believe it could be worse than the first movie.  But sweet Jesus, it’s REALLY BAD. Even die hard SJP fans are complaining that it’s awful and they’re sorry they wasted their time. Here’s just a small sample what the critics are saying:

“Dragging its deplorable carcass into infinity, Sex and the City 2 is so bad you can’t even watch the trailer. The only thing memorable about Sex and the City 2 is the number two part, which describes it totally, if you get my drift. It is to movies what fried dough is to nutrition…and since the four women dress like drag queens, it’s not always easy to tell the difference!

Sucks and the City. As tasteless as an Arabian cathouse, as worn-out as your 1998 flip-flops and as hideous as the mom jeans Carrie wears with a belly-baring gingham top, “Sex and the City 2” is the worst movie of the year. It’s as unfunny and shapeless as another famed desert epic. Just think of it as “Bitchtar.”

“The ugly smell of unexamined privilege hangs over this film like the smoke from cheap incense. Over cosmos in their private bar, Charlotte and Miranda commiserate about the hardships of motherhood and then raise their glasses to moms who “don’t have help,” by which they mean paid servants. It all seem less wonderful now, it isn’t because of slackened effort or diminished charm on the part of the actresses who play them…has lost interest and can’t figure out what to do as they tiptoe toward middle age. Sex and the City 2 is about someone else’s boredom, someone else’s vacation and ultimately someone else’s desire to exploit that vicarious pleasure for profit. Which isn’t much fun at all.”

– A.O. Scott, The New York Times
