Wouldn't it be nice.
The new movie has been so widely and thoroughly panned that I don't need to describe, here, why I don't plan on seeing it. But during this little chat I did think of something that would have made a 2nd Sex and the City movie watchable, justifiable, and interesting. What if it had been a movie where those 4 well-heeled, materialistic girls...were poor? What if some of them suffered a lot during the economic downturn, but others didn't...would the friendship endure, and how? What if Big didn't work for a year and a half - would Carrie still find him so utterly hot?
It would have been nice to see a movie about a friendship that lasts through disasters and disparities of that magnitude. And I bet it could have been fun and inspiring as well.
It was suggested to me that there were probably a lot of other potential plots that could have resulted in a better movie than the one we got. No doubt. Any other ideas?
