Watch this if you liked: “Sex And The City”, “Confessions Of A Shopaholic”

"Sex And The City" series is a VERY acquired taste. Either you love the ladies from New York City, or you don't. When the first movie came out, everyone was anticipating for it. True enough, it tied up the perfect wish for every SATC fans out there: Carrie finally gets hitched to Mr. Big. But what else holds for the four ladies? Here comes "Sex And The City 2", where the ladies are whisked to the magical Middle East, Abu Dhabi to be exact.

The story opens with Carrie leading a seemingly normal married life with John Preston (aka Mr. Big), having published her latest book about marriage, with Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha busy with their own endeavours. Even her best friend Stanford is getting married to Anthony! Talk about a great start to the movie! But as the movie progresses, Carrie is thrown into a 'mid-wife crisis', having to live a mundane life unlike her old glamorous self. In swoops Samantha with her top-notch PR skills and the girls are going to Abu Dhabi for a week of fun and leisure.

It seems that all the girls do in Abu Dhabi are shop, eat, relax and gossip (Samantha's raging 52-year-old hormones are the highlight of the whole trip). Unfortunately, the whole plot feels stretched too thin to the fact that even Sarah Jessica Parker's facelift couldn't save the whole storyline that was crumbling down by every minute. Every fan would love to see some sizzling love scenes by Aidan and Carrie, but then it all fizzles out in the end, making the whole movie a tad bit anti-climax. The most memorable scene would be during the part where sexually liberated Samantha Jones was confronted with an angry mob of Muslims when her Birkin bag fell to the ground, spilling all sorts of stuff, including condoms! Her reactions were absolutely hilarious to the point where you can't help but applaud her.

Kudos should be given to supporting casts namely Alice Eve as the Irish nanny who doesn't feel the urge to cover her boobies with brassieres, and Max Ryan as the dashing Rikard Spirit, the man-version of Samantha Jones. Of course, how can you leave out Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, the women we have grown to love since 1998? The fashion, the hairdo, the makeup, the food, the glorious scenery all make up for the poor storyline that is presented in this movie. Patricia Fields (SATC costume designer since 1998) should be proud of the ladies right now.

Do go if you love those Manolo Blahniks that Carrie adores, or skip the whole thing if you're a man that loves footie too much to care about fashion. Or sex.
