    So which of my straight brethren are going to go see the Sex and the City movie? I am not gonna lie... I will go see it. I used to watch the show and I liked it, so I want to see the movie.

    So, who's gonna go?

    I saw the show because my grilfriend liked it, and then watched it more because it was quite funny, and gave an interesting insight into urban American culture. I probably won't go to see the movie, because however funny it was, it was very self-indulgent towards the end, became more about the character's navel gazing than comment-on-wider-society-through-the-prism-of-story-telling, and the main characters (less-Samantha), are ANNOYING AS TITS! Ahem, sorry for shouting there, got a bit animated.

    There's no category for the unstraight so I didn't vote.

    I have a thing for Samantha and I think other gay/bi men do too. She can have her way with me and she's the only one out of the 4 to classify as, "sexy." There are no movie theaters near me except the drive-in so I won't see it in a theater, but I will make a point to see it elsewhere.

    I have come to enjoy watching the show on DVD since the broadcasts came to an end -- I am now in the midst of season six, so not quite to the end -- but I am not eager to see the movie. I will certainly watch it eventually when it comes out on DVD, but, yeah, I guess the idea of going to see it in a cinema when not dragged there by a girlfriend does seem to me rather girlie.

    Are people who are fans of the Samantha character unable to see that Kim Cattrall is an utterly incompetent and amateurish actresses even by the standards of television, or does that just not matter because the character is so campy?

    I loved the show. I loved Kristin Davis' character of Charlotte (usually my type that I have dated). I absolutely will go to see the movie - with a couple of my straight guy friends. So much that happened in the show actually happened to us in our real dating lives. It's very relatable.

    Will not go see Sex and the City because it doesn't contain enough Kim Cattrall nudity. :frown:

    Where's the "Will not go see Sex in the City because I have seen the show and thus think it is cheap and cliche" option?

    nah, I'm gonna pass on this one. First off, it's way too pricy to go to see a movie these days, I'm a cheap bastard I guess - to me it's just not worth the price of admission. Secondly, I've only seen the show once... it had its moments, although that was the only time I watched it. Wasn't my cup of tea.

    Funniest thing I ever heard from a fan of the show, "it's a show about real life". I fell out of my chair, if I want real life, I'll go do it, not live vicariously thru a tv show ?

    Haha! YES!!

    The distortions of New York in the show are infamous in these here parts. Carrie's apartment alone is a joke unto itself. One bedroom pre-war walk-up off Madison Avenue? Hello??? That's $2,500 a month and she manages this, and all those shoes, on the salary of a part-time columnist?!?!?! Did she have rent-control? When did she get this apartment? As a baby?

    Miranda can afford her place. We have to assume Samantha can afford hers (which is likely to cost more than Carrie's and Miranda's). That's OK. The real kicker is Charlotte's place. That pre-war palace on Park Avenue would have monthly maintenance charges in excess of $3,000 a month and she manages this by doing nothing? Oh wait. She worked in an art gallery... likely earning less than Carrie.... oh OK.

    Real estate in New York is a spectator sport. Really! The NY Times has an entire Sunday section devoted to real estate. Who buys what and where or, more salaciously, who screws whom out of what where, is gossip column fodder. Websites like Curbed.com and those of the major realtors actually make money tracking NYC real estate gossip. It's a circus.

    Jason, you're overlooking one possibility here, could it be the Sex & the City women are fucking Eliot Spitzer and he's paying their rent ? :wink:

    I'm sure Samantha has had Spitzer as she seems to serve more cock than Lucky Chang's, but the others...... I doubt it.

    I think you missed an option in the survey.

    "Will go and see Sex and the City because I will learn something"

    There's a reason most women like this series (although the movie was not as good as it could have been), perhaps more guys should pay some interest and learn. It might even spark some conversation with your wifes/GFs and who knows... Perhaps more...

    Yeah, it's an okay show. I watched it a little with my girlfriend. Kind of funny, kind of annoying, kind of clever. I'll see it if my gf really wants to go see it, or if I can get in for free (which I can sometimes).

    Oh Good Lord! More tour buses more sex starved bitches, more henpecked husbands more pussy whipped boyfriends cluttering the streets.

    Each day you see them-they come in droves like unwanted cattle stampeding up Bleecker to Perry as they work their way up Perry Street to the Carrie Bradshaw home. They stand outside and stare at it wistfully and with weird sounds exiting their portholes (mouths).

    Until about a month or so ago, they would gallop up the steps of the townhouse and have their picture taken. Many would go up and touch the door and often the doorknob and have their picture taken thusly. Some stood on the steps, some sat on them while having pictures taken. Finally they were stopped. The owner of the place now has a chain across the bottom of the steps with a sign notifying people that they will be charged with trespassing if they set foot on the steps. The sign also mentions that there is a surveilance camera watching every move. Now the tourists stand across the street in front of the building labeled "The McKinley" (most likely built and named at about the time that President William "Billy The Bulge" McKinley was assassinated back in 1901-he was called The Bulge, due to his rather large scarf [he felt chilled easily and kept a scarf wrapped around his genitals]). At any rate...they now snap pictures of the Bradshaw place. Some even stand in front of the now chained off steps.

    Comedy moments come in when an uninformed tourist-not part of the groups-stops in front of #84 Perry, convinced that it is the right place. People, please, was there a 5 story apartment house next to Bradshaw's home? No. Did Bradshaw reside in a townhouse with a wide bannister outside? No. Please note she was in a place with a much narrower bannister.

    And who can forget the evening, when as twilight came upon us, a confused woman stared at the windows and moaned to the guide that it looked different inside than she remembered it from the show. She began weeping as the guide explained that the program had outside shots of the building and never was actually filmed inside of it.


    Then there is group 2 of tourists- they come traipsing down 4th street along with a couple of filmers. Yes, there are two men, filming this insanity. They then move down Perry towards Bleecker, stopping of course in front of the Bradshaw home.

    The ones who come up from Bleecker usually start out in Bleecker Street Park and receive a throat scraping from an overly sweet, undercooked cupcake from Magnolia Bakery (at Bleecker and 11th). Please note, Magnolia was for some 20 years Bird Jungle and had birds flying around inside and crapping their guts out (makes the thought of a cupcake sickening doesn't it?).

    A couple of times as I have approached Bleecker, I've heard their guide tells them that they have 20 minutes to do some shopping along Bleecker n the overpriced stores-Olive & Bettes, Marc Jacobs (there are 3 to choose from) Cynthia Rowley, Coach, Ralph Lauren (2 or 3 to choose from), Brunello Cucinelli-where for a mere 800.00 you can purchase a pair of Cargo Pants, or a 3,200.00 weekend bag (with leather of course), after which they are to be back and ready to reboard the bus. Where they go after that, I neither know nor care.

    Regarding Sarah Jessica Parker-I wish her well. She's a very nice woman (she and Matthew were living in the area as recently as a year ago-not sure if they still dwell there). Polite and well mannered I do not hold the antics of the tourists as being her fault. No, those (antics) come from and are encouraged by greed frenzied tour organizers

    (as one can tell from the above review, I have no intention of seeing Sex In The City. Hell, I didn't even care for the television program-perhaps due to its incredible inaccuracies.)
