Impossible though it may be to believe, Sex and the City 2 is actually worse than Sex and the City. It’s sloppier, more empty-headed and even more in love with its own conspicuous consumption — and it manages to make Carrie Bradshaw into more of a solipsistic nightmare than she was, which is no small accomplishment. (Here she puts forth the idea that the entire history of Manhattan was merely a build-up for her arrival.) The movie wants to think it’s edgy, so it opens with a gay wedding. We know it’s a gay wedding because no one ever fails to tell us. In case we somehow missed this, there’s a gay chorus in white dinner suits and top hats singing show tunes and Liza Minnelli performing the wedding. No condescending cliche is left untouched, but that’s not the plot anyway. It’s more romantic and fashion woes — with Kim Cattrall’s menopause thrown in — that lead to a trip to Abu Dhabi so the four gal pals can shock the locals with cleavage and thereby enlighten the locals. What happens is pure sitcom — with all the laughs removed. The filmmakers really should have realized that when your leading men are Chris Noth and John Corbett, it’s probably unwise to include film clips of Cary Grant and Clark Gable, but there’s so much they haven’t realized.
