Porn for single women

Saw Sex and the City last night. Same theatre as the Iron Man preview but a far different audience. For one, there were no comic book guys there. Well, except for me. The couple I sat next to got their tickets to the premiere when they bought a new Mercedes Benz (product placement is big in the movie). I brought my friend Gina, who loves the show and was thrilled to bits to be there. Seemed like most of the predominantly female audience was thrilled–many had dressed up for the occasion. Again, I can’t really say that about the audience for Iron Man.

As for the movie–well, with its fetishistic lingering over the clothes and even the boxes with designers’ names, plus the way it hit on every romantic comedy cliche, it was pure porn for single women. I can get behind that, though. What I didn’t like were the sappier scenes. When director/writer Michael Patrick King took a scene that looked like it was going in a typical romantic comedy direction and gave it the Sex and the City twist, the movie worked, but quite a few scenes lacked that zing. Also, Jennifer Hudson as Carrie’s assistant was purely awful. To be fair, it’s an underwritten, unfunny role.

Anyway, the general consensus, talking to people after the movie, was that it was fun and entertaining, but no one was blown away. Oh, and that there wasn’t enough sex. And yes, I was a fan of the show–as I remarked to someone before the movie, it got me through three relationships. Another fan I talked to after the movie said she that her boyfriend didn’t watch the show, and she’s relieved about that, because it reveals too much of what really goes on in women’s heads. I don’t know how true that is, but that was one reason I watched. That, and the outfits, of course.
