Sex & the City in the City

Just to be clear – I haven’t seen the Sex & the City movie and probably won’t anytime soon. I’ve watched one entire episode of the TV show and it didn’t grab me – didn’t seem like the worst thing on TV; not even close, but didn’t seem notably worth watching either. A couple of women have assured me that it’s because I’m a guy, but I can’t buy into that either – one of my best female friends regards the show as utter garbage, so I can’t view this along gender lines. I think it comes down to individual taste, especially as I often enjoy films that have been labeled as “chick flicks.”

I bring this up because of something I overheard the other night while waiting at a bus stop in the Loop. Two well-dressed 20-something couples came along, waiting for the bus as well. Their topic of discussion was the Sex & the City movie.

“I really liked the movie,” said one of the men. The other three seemed genuinely surprised, though I couldn’t be sure whether their surprise was because of their feelings about the movie or their feelings about their friend. Still, their reactions prompted him to justify his statement, so he continued. “I think it made some good points about relationships. It was one of the most intelligent movies I’ve seen in a long time.”

Like I said, I haven’t seen the movie so I can’t say much, but it did make me wonder – just what kind of movies has this guy been going to?

So I put it to you – have you seen the movie? The TV show? Are they intelligent commentaries on contemporary relationships? Entertaining fluff? Or what?
