After moving in together in an impossibly beautiful New York apartment, Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big make a rather arbitrary decision to get married. The wedding itself proves to be anything but a hasty affair--the guest list quickly blooms from 75 to 200 guests, and Carrie's simple, label-less wedding gown gives way to an enormous creation that makes her look like a gigantic cream puff. An upcoming photo spread in Vogue puts the event--which will take place at the New York Public Library--squarely in the public eye. Meanwhile, Carrie's girlfriends--Samantha, the sexpot; Charlotte, the sweet naïf; and Miranda, the rigid perfectionist--could not be happier. At least, they couldn't be happier for Carrie. Charlotte still has the unrealized hope of getting pregnant. Samantha is finding a loving, committed relationship more grueling than she could have imagined. Miranda unwittingly lets her own unhappiness--created when Steve admits to cheating on her just once--spoil Carrie's. After a ... Written by

I was a fan of the series, so I was looking forward to seeing my favorite characters on scream again.
I enjoyed the movie a lot, with its wonderful posh and luxury settings, awesome fashion, those modern female characters, steamy sex scenes, awesome male nude shots, and that wonderful bond that links the girls despite any trouble. However, I found that the spark of the series had gone, and there were more dresses and less depth. I think the movie it is a bit too long, but there are still glimpses of the old brilliant scripts.
Regarding the acting, the girls are still believable in their respective roles. However, Chris North (Mr Big), is just terrible. I mean, he has never been a good actor, but he's specially uninspired and inexpressive in this movie; he wasn't even on shape!
This is, definitely, a chick flick. Not only that, this is a movie for chicks who loved the series, because, if you did, you have a background of several years to understand the characters, how they act and what drives them. So you don't need anything to be explained further, or the characters to have more of this or less than that. If you have never watched the series, the movie will not interest you, as it will look as a too superficial and poorly drawn story.
To put it in a another words. This is not a movie, but an extra-length episode of the series. So, watch it if you loved the series. Otherwise, ignore it, as the movie was made for the devotees of the TV show, not for the movie lover.
