I could be all po-faced about the Sex & The City movie, pointing out that there isn’t a lot to admire in a series that posited that a woman’s main obsessions in life are shoes and finding a husband, that a woman must be judged solely on her fashion sense regardless of the arena she inhabits, that neuroticism is obligatory and anal-obsessed naval gazing is the norm.
But that would be to imply that I didn’t enjoy the series, which I did, enormously. What annoys me is that SATC has become another stick with which to beat thirty-something women. In an ideal world, men would never be allowed to watch it, to avoid them taking it seriously (why do men seem to treat it as a documentary?)
Anyway, preamble over: here is the full-length trailer that was released on Friday. The movie is released May 30 in the USA.
