Storyline

Two years have passed since Carrie Bradshaw finally bagged John "Mr. Big" Preston, the man she was always meant to be with. Just as her friend Charlotte must deal with her young daughter's "terrible two's", Carrie must deal with her relationship taking a turn for the worse - Big likes to watch old black-and-white movies on TV and eat take-out food, which prevents Carrie from feeling like the free-wheeling party girl she used to be. Meanwhile, Miranda copes with a new boss that can't handle an intelligent, powerful woman, and Samantha works a public relations angle that gets the fashionable foursome an all-expense-paid trip to Abu Dhabi. Written by The Massie Twins

Trivia

It was erroneously reported that due to a product placement deal with the studio, Carrie Bradshaw would own a Hewlett-Packard laptop, instead of an Apple Macintosh laptop. Bradshaw owned a PowerBook G3 in the series, and a PowerBook G4 in the first film. Bradshaw's laptop is the same PowerBook G4 seen in the previous film. Samantha uses a Hewlett-Packard desktop.

Quotes

Mr. Big: [At Carrie's bewildered response to his putting a television in their bedroom] Don't you remember how great it was watching 'It Happened One Night' at the hotel?
Carrie Bradshaw: Yes, that's because it's only happened one night, at a hotel.

Embarrassing and Botoxy at Best...
31 October 2011 | by edwieSee all my reviews

I was a fan of the show. The first movie, not as good as the show. Not as funny as the show. But it was entertaining.

The 2nd film was made with the sole purpose of cashing in some money and I wonder if they actually did... Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda are... how do I put it... too OLD.

I could not concentrate on the movie because I kept looking at those bad bad BAAAD botox injections trying to be hidden by lavish hairstyles, lots of make-up and flashy clothes. These women are well past their prime. The show as on top about 12, 13 years ago!! It is no longer fun to still portray Samantha as a whore when she is over 50, the arghile scene was let's say, humiliating at best. Charlotte complaining while her face couldn't move and Miranda looking 200... They looked like a complete parody of their former selves.

There is a reason this show was a hit... Sexy, professional adult women in the big city.

This Abu Dhabi film made it looked like retired, desperate women looking to have sex or complaining about their husbands and flashing clothes and their lifestyle and etc.. Sort of like "Real Housewives of UAE".

BTW.. it hurts like hell to say this.. but the guys in the film -in real life- would never ever hit on a woman like Samantha.. not like the one in the film. She looked 70.
