Movies: Sex and the City's "Terrible Twos"

YOUR FEATURE PRESENTATION
Sometimes we're our own worst enemies. Sex & The City, the ginormously popular HBO sitcom understood this. Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), the heroine of the whole enterprise, was the worst offender. She bought shoes when she needed to pay rent. She cheated on her boyfriends. She broadcast her business to the world when she would have been better off keeping her mouth sh -- oh, uh, yes, job hazard as a sex and relationship columnist. Mr. Big (Chris Noth) was also skilled in the art of self sabotage, continually pushing his perfect girl (Carrie, duh!) away when she needed to be pulled close. He perfected this dynamic in the first movie's act one climax by leaving her at the altar. Ouch. Two year old spoiler alert: They got back together and married in the end.

Now the Fab Four (Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte) are back. They've mostly settled down so SEX AND THE CITY 2 will pick up the baton and practice the fine art of self sabotage on itself.

The Big Gay Wedding prologue is surely meant as a tribute to the devoted gay fanbase but as such it's a strangely tone deaf affair and a misfire. The familiar term "The Terrible Twos" is first deployed the next morning to describe Charlotte's continually screaming toddler. Soon Carrie has hijacked it for an article on the bed death of her young marriage. This neatly lays down the plot conflict. You can't help but wonder if Carrie and Big will regain their sparkle. But really?!? The Terrible Twos? Oh Sex & the City 2, you foolish, foolish lady. You're making it too easy for the haters! The pans will all but write themselves.

So, what are Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) drinking to?

The 'Sex and the City 2' Interview That Turns Suddenly Serious

Sjp  

Our Towleroad correspondents Josh Helmin (interviewer) and Josh Koll (editor) put together a brief clip for us with the Sex and the City 2 women.

Helmin asks Sarah Jessica Parker about her first gay friend, who she says is no longer with us.

Says Parker: "There seems to be, of concern to me, young men that are now sick again, or are HIV positive, and I think that because they were too young to see what happened 20 years ago, to know the devastation and the absolute heartbreak that accompanied that time."

Helmin asks the four stars of the film about marriage equality, given that there's a gay wedding in the film. Kristin Davis is extremely excited that Laura Bush is on board.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

And coming up shortly, Nathaniel Rogers' review of the film.
