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!
2 shot of vodka
1 shot of limoncello
4 slice of lemon
2 glasses of cranberry juice
Shake vigorously together and serve in a martini glass!
