For too long, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) had been looking for love in all the wrong places…but in all the right shoes. In this much anticipated movie event, Carrie, Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) are back, four years after the hit TV series ended. As they continue to juggle career, relationships, motherhood and life in Manhattan, the girls realize that more than ever, true friendship never goes out of style.

The film itself is LONG, surprisingly long, and with this extended edition we're talking about an extra 10-15 minutes of unseen footage. The additional footage makes perfect sense for hardcore fans, these additional scenes are not only at times funny but they extend an offering of extra "hope" and sometimes "explanation" of scenes that were previously concluded.
The TWO disc special edition is a perfect trade in for anyone who rushed out to purchase the film when it released in stores. On your second disc you will find an amazing conversation between show Creator Michael Patrick King and Executive producer / Star, Sarah Jessica Parker. Together they discuss everything from the process of character development - to fashion decisions with Pat Field. You will also find three additional scenes that did NOT make it into the extended cut of the film which are alternate takes on what you DID see make the final cut.
Overall I rated this product ***** stars because it is a collector's DREAM to carry this film as a personal memento of appreciation, fandom and hope. Without plot give away - I will simply say this .... Once you find love, and once you think you've settled your dreams, does the "dream" always amount to reality? and when challenges arise in our personal lives, are we truly willing to accept what has been handed to us through circumstance, choice and history?.
Great movie - follows the same great story line as the HBO show, but they cleaned the language up a LOT. That's okay, times change, people change and if you do have little kids listening in on mommy and her friends conversations it is only appropriate that you clean your conversation up somewhat. The same wry humor is there and you can still feel the same close friendship between the "girls" that has developed over their 20 relationship.
As far as Mr. Big - I knew him and Carrie were always meant to be. I actually feel sorry for Samantha and how her relationship ends (watch the movie for that one). But Carrie and Big, yep - 2 peas in a pod....only thing I couldn't understand about him is he is such an Alpha male, so sure of himself that only a little needling can cause him to fold like a house of crepe paper cards. He is a man that knows what he wants and goes after it - so why does he run from Carrie all the time.
My last note is just a personal note that I've noticed as a trend over the last 10 years or more regarding dating and the social scene - - - using electronics as your only form of communication between each other. It freaking drives me crazy. Big didn't have Carrie's phone number because she threw her old, ancient phone into the Pacific - so he sent her emails......WTF???!!! If you really love some you don't send emails or text - you freaking go and find them and talk to them face to face. It is not that hard. I had a FWB relationship that lasted on and off for about a year and the guy never called, he only texted. It drove me nuts. In my book if you want to ask someone out you don't text them, you call! We are becoming a faceless society by texting and emailing each other when we are in the same freaking town. And this feeling isn't because I'm an old person. I'm only 48 and I love tech - - but tech has it's place and it's not appropriate to use it as the only form of communication when you are in a relationship.
Miranda should not say ruined marriage to Big right after she talked to Steve outside the night before Carrie's big wedding. Miranda seemed very upset. Quoted "ruined marriage" by Miranda scared out Big. He ran away and was jilted. She's wrong. She didn't understand about love.
I was excited to see where Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte were in their lives and I think they did a great job picking back up. There was plenty of drama and relationship mayhem that kept it interesting. One of the things that I loved about the series was that the show was not just about sex/romantic relationships but also about friendship. Female friendship to be exact and the special bond that women have and the trials they go through. I loved that the movie also dealt with that. Miranda and Carrie's friendship was tested and I loved the way Charlotte in her typical "Charlotte way" showed her loyalty and the way they all rallied around Carrie like true friends do. I laughed, I cried, I got angry at the characters.
I think this is a must for all SATC fans (some may not enjoy as I've seen on other reviews)to catch up on their lives. Also a must for those that like love stories or movies about friendships.
I am still a Carrie Bradshaw fan and will continue to watch this over and over.

THE BLU RAY IS OF BETTER QUALITY THAN THE DVD.
Now I give this a five star rating because as being a massive fan of the series I was excited to see the movie again. This was shipped and arrived very quickly so the first thing I did was stick it in my PS3 and watch. It's a very long film, around three hours in total so it's not for a quick watch you need to sit down at it it's a long story.
The story follows Carrie Bradshaw in New York during the build up to her wedding with John James Preston (Big) she originally chooses what would be the right wedding but vogue asks her to do '40' and cover it as the last single girl, she is given a Vivienne Westwood dress for free and instead of her suit chooses to wear this one. Miranda (still married to Steve) hits a rocky patch and they end up separated, she tells Big he would be crazy to get married causing him to leave the wedding. Carrie and her friends continue to Mexico where Charlotte gets travellers diarrhea after swallowing the water even after trying to avoid it with pudding. When they return Carrie goes back to her old life, I was slightly surprised that she actually went back the way she was so depressed and miserable all the time, Carrie Bradshaw in this state over a man?! shocking. But she gets a PA and in time still does not get over big, eventually they get back together along with Miranda and Steve after Charlotte finds out she's pregnant with baby Rose. In the end as predicted, Carrie does marry Big in a very simple ceremony in her suit.
All in all an excellent watch, very fun and one of my favourites. Definitely worth the money.
This film, given the extra time to explore the main characters feelings was very good. It follows a familiar format to that of the series but you didnt need to have seen the series to understand the relationship between the girls. Many women will be able to understand the feeling and frustrations higlighted in this film and although the storyline was a bit predictable I still enjoyed the film and would recommend it to anyone with a little romance in their soul.
I did feel that this film rounded up the whole Sex and The City experience and Im suprised they even bothered with a second film. Im not so sure about seeing the second film as I was before viewing the first. It just seems a bit unnecessary. On the whole, this film was very entertaining.
I accidentally purchased the regular cut edition so on this one you don't see the full wardrobe scene or a few other key funny moments, but that's okay.
It is not a film for men as the story is definately about and for women but OK for a girl's night in.
I bought the DVD for my daughter and she has enjoyed it a few times although, having seen it once, I wouldn't want to watch it again.
