As part of my personal campaign to pump up the box office ratings for more female driven films, a friend and I went to see Sex and the City: The Movie on opening night. Naturally, this was a mistake. I remember pretty clothes and romantic sets, but it was hard to hear over the squealing, cosmo-soaked crowd in attendance.
Anyhoo, Tuesday brings the chance to see it again with the release of SATC: The Movie DVD. Fanciful frocks and friendships may be just the thing to distract from all the doom and gloom in the financial sector these days. I am also looking forward to Michael Patrick King's usually insightful director commentary.
In other Sex and the City news, it looks like Candace Bushnell is taking a cue from Gossip Girl and cashing in on the teen book market. Carrie is going back to high school. Coterie Books has more juicy details.
