Sex And The City

Ever feel like you need a little company or are you just generally bored while your friends are out living their lives to the full? 'Yes' I hear you say? Well, I found the answer to be Sex and The City!
Whether it is a trip to the cinema to watch the movie or a night infront of the television with the entire box set, Sex and The City is sure to rid you of those lonely nights!

I hadn't seen a single episode before I went to see the movie yet the day after seeing the movie I just had to order the box set! I knew that it was good riddance to lonely nights and hello to hours of entertainment, inspiration and pretty much every emotion you can think of!

Sex and The City The Movie is a female orientated cultural success, based on 4 iconic women living the life of the Big Apple. Carrie Bradshaw aka Sarah Jessica Parker is the narrator, capturing us with her stories of sex, fashion and love through the eyes of a single women trying to balance her exhausting life in New York with her job as a weekly column writer. We are also embraced with the presence of her three best friends, Samantha (Kim Catrall), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis).

Together the four girls are utterly crazy; drinking Cosmopolitans at unearthly hours, partying wildly, discussing men and living for fashion. Separately, they face compelling challenges in their lives, be it motherhood, illnesses, heartache or general struggles in their everyday relationships. Yet the idea and an obvious theme throughout the movie is that aslong as you have your friends, then you can be reassured that everything will be fine in the end.

Surprisingly enough, the cinema wasn't free from male viewers either. Proving that the most recent iconic female based movie can be enjoyed by all, even if it does stereotype the gay population of New York! The entire audience was provided with over two hours of entertainment ranging from laughter to tears and memories. I even witnessed the woman behind me burst into tears when Carrie was given her dream walk-in closet by Mr Big, the second love of her life to her evergrowing collection of expensive designer shoes.

So, overall I thought that the movie was the perfect introduction to my passion for Sex and The City and an evergrowing obsession with watching reruns. Some love stories aren't epic novels, some are short stories and reassure you that unlike Manolo Blahniks, friendship will never go out of style!
