didn't love it...
I don't think this idea is anything new. Unless you make a few changes of realistic apartments/wardrobe/and looks from SATC, it's the same premise, same conversations, you have two characters who basically have the same job paths, writers and an art gallery, and a third friend who's sleeping around...
Maybe it's good for girls who weren't born when SATC was on, and they need a way to make sense of things they themselves are going through, but seriously, same show with less glitz.
Let's not pretend this is some kind of new approach to reaching 20 something girls. At least the sex scenes in SATC were easier to watch with great looking talent- guys and girls.
The Help (2011)
I went with my Mother who hasn't read the book, and she thought it was great. I thought it was great as far as casting and acting. Love those women, can't go wrong with any of them, and they nailed it as far as portraying women from the South. Some of the characters hit a little too close to home, having grown up there.
Unfortunately for me, and always the case, the book for me is infinitely better. I found myself crying and laughing so much more when reading. I just felt the film didn't build the characters as well, and the few changes made for the film, I didn't understand the purpose.
So anyone who has read the book, may be a little let down, but over all pleased, however if you haven't read, I'm sure you'll enjoy immensely, thank goodness a film that isn't another remake!
