I LOVE YOU, BUT I LOVE ME MORE…

FINALLY saw the sex and the city movie. stop reading now if you don’t want to be spoiled…

ok. so let’s start with miranda & steve…

i’m less than inclined to like her character. she’s cynical, takes the little things for granted (which are most certainly bigger than she would like to imagine), and just plain crabby. steve, on the other hand, always loved him, until now. to allow him to cheat on her and then allow us to believe it’s OK… NOT ok. a cheater is a cheater, no matter the reason. when you love someone in a manner required to make a marriage and family, you resist temptation to stray ALWAYS. i hate they let him cheat and i hate even more that they let miranda take him back. that aside, both, miranda & steve looked awful – exhausted, old, beaten. their storyline was slightly interesting, but definitely heart wrenching (and hit a little too close for home).

on to samantha and smith…

samantha has always been the comical genius of satc. she’s uninhibited, loud and just plain fun. in this movie, she wasn’t THAT samantha, not the samantha i’ve always loved. granted, she was funny, just not samantha funny… enough. her relationship with smith was, to say the least, strained and she changed WAY too much for him. she IS new york, not LA. above all, she should know that changing for a man is as possible as a man changing for a woman – not possible. all said, she is a WONDERFUL friend. i would LOVE to have a samantha in my life. in my opinion, leaving smith brought her back to life. and in my opinion, she had the BEST line in the movie – “i love you, but i love ME more”.

and then there was charlotte and harry and lily, and then rose…

charlotte was the saving grace of this movie. her emotionality is what i love about her. always the optimist, she plays the part well. also, her scenes were the funniest and the most fun. i want her life. i want to meet a man who loves me and wants the things i want. harry is that man. he supports her, loves her, cherishes her and most of all, he lets her be neurotic charlotte b/c that is who she is. i was excited that she was pregnant, i was excited that she was carrie’s rock, i was excited that her happiness was completed without tragedy – aside from pooing herself.

speaking of tragedy…

carrie and big (john james preston)…

i’ve always loved them together. LOVED them. something about big has captured me since he was introduced on the show. i enjoy how carrie & big play off of each other – something about them being polar opposites really struck me. and while their relationship was volatile on the show and continued in the movie, i wanted to root for them.

when big essentially left carrie at the alter, i cried like a baby. not b/c he didn’t show up get out of the car, but b/c all of the excitement that culminated in the wedding was shattered by doubt. but not doubt as a result of not wanting to share his life with carrie, but as a result of the excitement (and a little comment by miranda). their scene in the road, their encounter after carrie left the library, was more than heartbreaking. and carrie’s descent into depression was even more so. thank goodness for her girls.

in the end, they made it permanent (or as permanent as possible), in the way he imagined it – just the two of them. it really was romantic.

all in all, i was extremely happy with the movie. it was true to sex and the city fashion and was certainly, sex and the city at it’s best. all tears were definitely worth it.
