"An Amazing Box-Set!",
This review is from: Sex & The City: The Complete Collection (Deluxe Edition) (DVD)
If your a fan of "Sex and the City" this is the ultimate collector's item. Here you get the entire series in its entirety, everything from the series' episodes (all 94 shows) to the two feature-length films, plus a great bonus DVD that contain an array of extras that you will enjoy over and over.
Very few cable shows have ever experienced the kind of success that "Sex and the City" had. Viewers were entranced every week as Carrie and her three best friends, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda, led very busy lives in New York City. All four ladies had great jobs and active sex lives, something the women were not ashamed of. These characters epitomized what life was like for single women in America in the late '90's and early 2000's, and what made the show so appealing was the fact that these women loved each other and were always there for one another. Their family was a "family of choice" and no one could break that bond.
In 2008 "Sex and the City" hit the big screen for the first time in "Sex and the City-The Movie" where it became an instant boxoffice smash. It was no surprise that there was an immediate sequel called "Sex and the City 2", but unfortunately due to a mediocre script and the girls not being situated in New York, the film was a commercial flop. Still, it's nice to see both films offered in this new box-set that collector's will enjoy for posterity.
The bonuses that accompany this set includes interviews with the cast, audio commentaries, deleted scenes, "next-episode" previews, and more. The subtitles are in English, French, and Spanish and the episodes are presented in the original full-screen format, the way they were orignally broadcast.

how was it a commercial "flop"? It made $290 mil globally on a $100 mil budget. I'd say it was a success--albeit a less critically acclaimed success.

At least we proudly display our "movie collection" on the shelf, as apposed to under the bed or wherever you men put it.
P.S. Women who enjoy 'Sex and the City' aren't all psycho social workers looking to nail deadbeat men, and I know that not all men have porn collections stashed under their beds, but your closed-minded, ANTI-FEM comment deserved it...

Are the discs remastered with a play all feature? (Or are they just the same discs repackaged?)

The discs are beautifully remastered! They have a new title screen/intro to the title screen and yes, a play all feature.

Any idea why Amazon shows this as rating G?? Is that a mistake or is this a version that is cleaned up?

I second, I first started this series with my girl friend, her and I started this series together years ago when I was curious. I was taken aback, and shocked by the incredible acting and the phenomenal dialogue. I've ordered this now and I can't wait to surprise her with this for her upcoming birthday. It's a great television show, well written and directed that analyzes, in an honest, yet heart-felt way the relationship of women and society. It's actually really good. I think any adult would be able to enjoy it if they are open minded enough.
