I attended the Sex and the City screening at the Woodruff Arts Center sponsored by Moet Chandon. If you could imagine "The Color Purple" without the mailbox--you would have Sex and the City 2. The mailbox was Celie's connection, her lifeline to her roots, her sister Netty as New York was Carrie's inspiration for her column, the backdrop to their friendship and the backbone of the show. New York City was missing. The majority of the movie was set in Abu Dhabi (Middle East).
There was no thread throughout the movie that connected the story. What we loved about the series was the truth, honesty and wit found in the writing. It was stellar, unmatched. There were no "lines" in this movie. Aside from the glitz, glam, and fashion it was flat.
No sex, no city...
