Sex and the City
I saw the Sex and the City movie opening weekend. I wasn't very excited about seeing it but a friend of mine really wanted to go so I gave in and I have to say that it was awful. I was going to write a long post about it but Samhita at feministing beat me to it. Check out her post Sex and the City: A Trainwreck. She had me nodding in agreement the entire time.
The only redeeming part of the movie was Samantha's character, which for me was usually the only reason that I watched the show in the first place. Her character isn't without flaws and personally I'd like to see her a little less sexualized sometimes but for the most part she is the one woman that over and over presents herself as a strong woman that is in control of her life.
For those of you that have seen it I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Note: If you plan on seeing the movie wait to read the post, but after you see it check it out.
