Presented Without Comment: Sex and the City 2 Reviews

"'Sex and the City 2' is about someone else's boredom, someone else's vacation and ultimately someone else's desire to exploit that vicarious pleasure for profit. Which isn't much fun at all."–A.O. Scott, New York Times

"The only thing memorable about 'Sex and the City 2' is the number two part, which describes it totally, if you get my drift. Everything else in this deadly, brainless exercise in pointless tedium is dedicated to the screeching audacity of delusional self-importance that convinces these people the whole world is waiting desperately to watch two hours and 25 minutes of platform heels, fake orgasms and preposterous clothes. It is to movies what fried dough is to nutrition." -Rex Reed, New York Observer

"The experience of listening to the girls complain about their fairy-tale lives from the comfort of an all-expenses-paid luxury vacation in the Arabian desert may leave a viewer feeling by turns nostalgic, disoriented, and impatient." -Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

"Fans of the HBO series would be wise to pivot on their Manolo Blahniks and steer clear of the mortifying mess that is Sex and the City 2" -Claudia Puig, USA Today

"The characters of Sex and the City 2 are flyweight bubbleheads living in a world which rarely requires three sentences in a row." -Roger Ebert

"In this second screen incarnation of the fabulous HBO series, the satire is sagging, the irony's atrophied and the funny is flabby." ~Los Angeles Times
