While wrestling with the pressures of life, love, and work in Manhattan, Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte join Samantha for a trip to Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), where Samantha's ex is filming a new movie.

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

An extended version version exists. While it shortens a few shots, collectively, by about 2 seconds, it adds about 5 minutes.
The major additions are - 1. When Carrie tries on her outfits before she leaves her apartment, the rest of the girls, including Lily, try on her outfits as well. 2. Right before Carrie leaves the apartment, she disconnects the computer. 3. Carrie walks through the Mexican house alone for a bit. 4. When Miranda find her new apartment, she goes in, looks around and tell some guy that she is interested in it. 5. Following the scene where Samantha and Smith have sex and talk about Samantha feeling distanced, she and Carrie talk on the phone - Carrie is using a public phone - and Samantha tells her she will be coming much less to New York in order to take care of her relationship with Smith and Carrie is surprised. 6. Following the scene where Carrie buys the Vogue issue, she meets with Charlotte and they go trick-and-treating together with Harry and Lily and a neighbor shows her condolences, which makes Carrie wear a mask for the next door. 7. Following the scene where she types "Love..." on her laptop, Stanford calls and invites her to a party where he is bored and she declines. See more »
OK, I did have some idea of what to expect before seeing this. Yes there was going to be a lot of shoes, dresses and Sarah J-P narrating the blindingly obvious. But the SATC TV series rose above this and certainly in the last season bought about some very intelligent, touching and emotional story lines.
And then they came up with this. Two and a half hours of will Carrie and Big get married or not? This would be OK if it wasn't for the fact that pretty much everyone else got stuck on the sidelines except for Miranda. Samantha is now a nymphomaniac, Charlotte is basically there for comedy value and between them, Big, Smith, Harry and Stanford get about 8 seconds of speaking time. Miranda and Steve's storyline was the only one actually worth watching and credit is due to Cynthia Nixon and David Eigenberg for pulling something decent out this.
Overall it just doesn't live up to the standard of the series and at times you just want to slap Carrie Bradshaw with her Manolo and tell her to get over herself (that quote came from a female friend of mine who used to idolise all the SATC girls)
