Guilty Pleasure

OK, I’ll admit it.  I’ve seen all 94 episodes of Sex and the City.  Call it a guilty pleasure — It was a fun show with smart writing.

Tonight, Megan and I saw the movie.  It’s received universally bad reviews and scores a dismal 54% on the Tomatometer.  But it was panned for the precisely the reason that most fans will love it — the movie is essentially another season of the show packed into two and a half hours.  It certainly didn’t break any new ground, but it was worth our $14 (plus $45 for the babysitter).

Film Critic Ethan Alter sums it up best:

Neither a classic for all time nor a [disaster], Sex and the City is the very definition of a decent summer blockbuster–entertaining and entirely disposable.

  1. $45.00 for a babysitter! Wow! You can tell I’m old. I used to get 35 cents an hour when I first started babysitting, and ended up getting 50 cents an hour by high school age!
