When "Sex and the City" aired its last episode in 2004, I was one of those lamenting ladies who felt like she lost four of her best friends. (Did I just write that? Get a life, Edler.)
I completely admit that Carrie Bradshaw, the main character in the show -- played by Sarah Jessica Parker -- led my "path not taken" life. I chose motherhood and Brew City, whereas she picked Manolos and the Big Apple. Not to say I could have made it in New York City, but I certainly never tried, either.
In any case, I am super psyched to be reacquainted with the Cosmo-swilling ladies: Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda and Carrie.
When the series ended, Charlotte and her husband were about to adopt a baby from China -- a plotline I am particularly excited about since I, too, have an internationally adopted kid. Also, I am curious about the finally rolling relationship between Carrie and Mr. Big -- whom we found out in the final moments of the finale is actually named "John."
I'm less curious about the whereabouts of Miranda, since in the final episodes she was settled and content (which in TV land translates as boring) with her baby daddy, Steve, and son, Brady.
I am interested to see more of Ann Meara in the film. Meara played the Alzheimer's-stricken mother-in-law. One of the most moving scenes in the final season was when Miranda, who was always annoyed by her mother-in-law, lovingly bathes her after finding Meara's character confused and eating food from a garbage can on the street.
Also, supposedly one of the characters dies in the 2 1/2 hour film. I'm wondering if it's Samantha (she had breast cancer), Mr. Big (he had a heart attack) or the most obvious choice, Steve's mom. I'm hoping Big gets offed, since I was always more of an Aidan gal myself.
Of course, I am prepared to be disappointed by the film after all of the hype. However, despite early, lukewarm reviews, I cannot wait to sneak peek it on May 27 (three days prior to the film's re…Read more...
