SEX AND THE CITY 2 or should it be Souks and the City?
By Miv Evans
Every TV episode of Sex and the City was character driven and strictly about relationships, as was Sex and the City, the film. So with this winning formula why would the sequel minimize emotional interaction, go heavy on plot, crazy on set design and, while wardrobe always played big in the background, have so many outfit changes that the characters become mannequins? It’s a fairly enjoyable watch, but this film has got way, way too much sizzle and definitely not enough sausage.
It is two years since Carrie married Mr Big and all is not well. They attend the wedding of Stanford, Carrie’s best friend, and Anthony, Charlotte’s best friend. Smith, Samantha’s ex, reappears and introduces her to a Middle Eastern businessman who wants Samantha to do his PR and offers to fly her and her friends on an all expenses trip to Abu Dhabi. The four leave on a private jet for their fabulous trip and SATC is back in business.

Life is everything the ladies ever wished it to be, but it wouldn't be "Sex and the City" if life didn't hold a few more surprises.
This time in the form of a glamorous, sun-drenched adventure that whisks the women away from New York to one of the most luxurious, exotic and vivid places on earth, where the party never ends and there's something mysterious around every corner.
