So I Finally Watched the Sex & The City Movie...

I am such the happy-go-late comer. I don't understand why most folks call me fashion forward. If the truth be told, I am no innovator. Oh I can hook up an outfit, a Christmas tree.. and even left overs. I just don't have to be the 1st one to do so...

When my husband asked if I wanted to watch the movie on Direct TV, I had to chuckle. "Isn't it a chick-flick?" I thought. Well I have to say that I loved the movie.. it was sort of like watching a book on tv (instead of tape). By that I mean, it was long, with toss & turns, ins & outs.. but I enjoyed the trip.

It was nice to see Jennifer Hudson in the movie. Correct me if I am wrong, I thought I read somewhere that when she struck fame.. her part was written into the movie. She actually comes in where Big leaves.. and then vice versa at the end. So I can see how that 'could' have been done. Anywho, she did well. I am truly happy for her success. It's the perfect example of opportunity meeting preparation! Yeah, right place & right time.. but she sincerely has the talent to boot!

I am SO glad that I didn't watch it in the movies as it was much too long to be couped up with strangers. Some of the scenes were so... well...out there, that I wouldn't have been comfortable watching out of the privacy of my own home. I mean there was SO much SEX in the movie.. I joked that it was soft porn. I mean there was sex everywhere. Well besides the married couples, it was mainly between the the neighbor and all of his..... hmmmm... women. (No I will not demean his very friendly female visitors). Geesh, that nearly full frontal of Samantha's neighbor, made me blush. I'm black - we don't blush! LOL

Anywho, don't get me wrong... There is no one in this movie who 'did it' for me.. I thankfully have my husband for that! I was just shocked at the openness of the movie. Everybody used the F word like it was going out of style. I must admit with 3 kiddos, I rarely watch anything higher than a PG-13 rating. But I guess this is were the grown-ups hang.

Then too.. I never saw Sex in the City on HBO. I've only seen it on TBS & the WB. I am sure I always got a really watered down version of it... SURPRISE - Welcome to reality... so it seems! Hmmmm... perhaps I should read the book & get the tv series uncut box set. I am sure there is lots more to see! LOL

Hey, I'm liking the new blog :-)
As for the movie? It was the first movie I had seen outside my home since Shaft! Well, ok, it hasn't been THAT long since I had been to a movie.

I liked it as well. And also like you, I hadn't watched the series when it was on, I caught it on TBS or whatever other station it might have been on here. Just so I would know what the heck the movie was going to be about. Ha!

I went by myself (I always do), so I wasn't embarassed about anything. Heck, I think when I went there were only 5 of us in the theatre! I went toward the end of the run of the movie.

You're right about the "F" word. You can hardly see a movie without it. Sad isn't it?

Dang, this is turning into a daggone E-MAIL! LOL I'm out

I forgot to mention... I said "Oh that's a cute outfit" My husband replied... "There's going to be a lot of cute outfits in this movie!"

Good ~ then there should be no problem when I get that lovely pair of patent leather leggings from express! LOL
