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
The world premiere was held in London, and not in New York City, which was heavily criticized by fans of the New York-set show. The explanation for this was the producers wanted the American premiere to be as close to the release date as possible, which would heighten hype and allow for the cast to promote the film in the U.S. See more »

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 »

Difficult to pull off TV move to big screen, but translation handled well by SATC.
Being a fan of the series for years, I had pretty high expectations for this film. I was not disappointed by what I saw, and most other SATC fans I've talked to agree with me.
The film jumps ahead 3 years in the characters' lives, and then intertwines the stories of the four women throughout the course of a year, as they each come to terms with the ending they found at the series' completion. I liked this approach, because it demonstrated the longevity (or lack thereof) of the happy endings the characters attained.
The girls are translated well into film--I didn't feel like any of the 4 was rewritten or misrepresented from her role on the show. The male counterparts were all present--Big, Steve, Harry, Smith, Stanford, etc. The movie doesn't spend as much time on them as they do the trials of the female characters, naturally, and no relationship is depicted as closely as Carrie and Big's.
I found the plot to be compelling and heartfelt and the female characters just as flawed and human and funny as they'd always been. And, of course, it wouldn't be SATC without the staples of designer bags and shoes, classic cocktails, and of course, a splash of nudity.
