Film Critic Quote of the week

Ella Taylor of the Voice, on the "Sex and the City" movie:

For one thing, Sarah Jessica Parker dressed like somebody's eight-year-old daughter; when she had sex, I felt as though I was watching child molestation.
Yes, now that "Sex" is back, all America can resume its mass delusion that Parker is an attractive woman.

I saw the movie the other night at the Philly premiere- one of them, anyway- and let's just say it's exactly like the TV show, only (literally) five times longer. If you liked the show, you'll like the movie, and if you hated it, likewise. As someone who enjoyed the show at times and was infuriated with it at others- mostly because of its celebration of unabashed materialism, and the effect it had on New York women who felt like they needed to live that life and EXACTLY that life or else their lives were empty. I felt much the same way about the movie.

Even more entertaining, though, was the atmosphere at the screening which, as more than one critic has pointed out, was like the female version of the first "Phantom Menace" midnight showings. I especially loved the radio station contests before the movie, where they gave out designer bags and dresses to whichever woman could fake the best orgasm.

I'd love to take credit for this exchange, but I can't.

Dude: I hate Sex in the City
Completely dysfunctional female moonbat: Oh, so you have a problem with independent women asserting themselves?
Dude: Um....I do now.

Jordan that should have been you in that conversation.

That, or you could have replied to her ... "First of all, T, she was a WHOEH!"

Will be interesting to see what the premise is for the next movie which I allready heard is a done deal.
