I went to see the Sex and the City movie last night - It did not disappoint.  I was a huge fan, am a huge fan, of the series, have most of it on DVD and still talk about it with the girls.  It was amazing to see how the characters are doing now, and to catch up with their lives... like meeting old friends.  

For me Sex and the City has a wonderful genuineness to it, having been single for 8 years before I met Bill, I recognise the storylines and believe me it really is like they tell it! Sex and the City has told modern heartbreak better than anything I've ever seen.  The reality of it.  The acting is fantastic, the writing brilliant, but prudes beware - the movie version takes its 18 cert and runs with it!!! 

I have never found anything on tv to replace SATC, and I would doubt I ever will.  I watched a bit of Desperate Housewives but I hated the way the women were pitted against each other, competing with each other.  I hate competitive women, and steer well clear once I spot the signs... and I love the comradery in SATC, the support and protection that I feel from my own close girl friends! 

Anyway, if you liked the series you'll LOVE the movie! It has a thumbs up from me!! As any SATC fan will know the cosmopolitan cocktail is practically another character in the series, here is a little twist on that old favorite!

for four

2 shot of vodka
1 shot of limoncello
4 slice of lemon
2 glasses of cranberry juice
crushed ice

Shake vigorously together and serve in a martini glass!

I'm a huge Sex and the City fan too. I'm a second generation fan who truly discovered the series through reruns because I wasn't old enough to watch it when it first came out. I have been dying to see the movie but because it is exam season I just haven't had time. My friends and I have vowed to all go and see it on Friday though. I'm glad it will not be a disappointment.

I went last week with my friend Shanna. It was great--we cried and laughed (and cried some more) our way through it.

it was the scene with charlotte roaring "NO!" at Big that lifted me out of my chair with emotion... it was very well done.
