If it were ‘sex and a city’, or ‘sex in the cities’, that would make more sense. Having just watched the trailer for the Sex in the City 2, due out next month, I am completely confused as to why this movie was made. If you are like me, you fell in love with the fifth character in the series, Manhattan. And it was like seeing a long-lost friend in the first movie. But the sequel takes place in the much more obvious Abu Dhabi. Of course! Why didn’t I see that coming?
I am pretty sure the writers were sitting around talking about the weirdest cities that they could send these self obsessed, over primped characters. Brainstorming sessions might have included Bollywood, Ho Chi Minh, or Outer Mongolia, but then finally it’s decided, Desert-Sheik! The fashionistas show up on sand dunes with camels.
The whole premise is that the ‘girls’ are going on vacation. This was believable when they went to Mexico for Carrie’s un-honeymoon. However it’s going to take a couple more margaritas for me to allow for Sex in the Abu Dhabi.
