Storyline

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 J. Spurlin

Alternate Versions

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 »

Really? This is the best they could come up with??
4 June 2008 | by aimeevd-1See all my reviews

***Contains Spoilers**** I was happy to see in the comment section that I was not the only one disappointed in the Sex and the City movie. I went out to see it with my girlfriends...and I was the only one who had anything negative to say.

Steve having an affair was completely out of character for him. Miranda knows better than to scare BIG away from marriage even if she was that upset. Charolette's role in the film was pointless--all we saw was how wonderful her life is going (which is nice but doesn't lead to a good movie). Samantha only cares about herself, which really bothered me. Should we applaud such behavior? ANd Carrie made me hate her. Carrie was never my favorite to begin with--she is always overreacting to everything and watching her I always hope other women are not really like this (and makes me wonder why guys put up with it). All Big wanted to do was talk...he kept saying "I need to talk to you" and then when he gets out of the car to say hes ready she FLIPS out like a crazy person. SHe put it all on herself when she bitched for months without ever talking to the "Love of her life" about what happened--"because its too painful". Womp Womp.

I also noticed that my favorite part of the show--the funny banter--was completely absent in the film. Womp womp.

I did like how Steve and Miranda got back together--it was done in a really good SATC manner. I loved how Big proposed (with the shoe), and sent her the love letters. There were okay parts of the movie, I didn't hate watching it. It could have been better. Much better.
