Set two years after the last movie and after Carrie’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) wedding, things are not so good. Carrie’s a party girl and her husband is a guy who would much rather eat at home and watch old black and white movies on TV. Carrie misses the party girl days. Charlotte (Kristin Davis) has a husband and two kids and a new nanny who’s cute and Irish and has an aversion to wearing underwear. Charlotte is a bit worried her husband likes the nanny as much or more than the kids do. Samantha (Kim Cattrall) is the same, but swings a deal that will take all the girls to Abu Dhabi for a week, all expenses paid. Off and a private airline with individual suites to a desert paradise where most of the movie takes place. Ironically, half way round the world Carrie meets an old boyfriend, Aiden (John Corbett) which complicates things.

I’ve never been a fan of Sex and the City. My first exposure to it was one time years and years ago when Netflix sent me a DVD of the first season by mistake which I did not order. I decided to try to watch it before sending it back. I did not get into it, nor did I have HBO at the time. Then when it moved to regular TV in reruns I still never watched the show. So when I watched the first movie, I did not enjoy it very much. I just didn’t get into the characters. Perhaps because this is a girls series, and girls are the only ones who get it. This second movie was a lot better for me. The subject matter was a lot more interesting. Ironically, many of the fans of the show were disappointed with this movie. So perhaps what I enjoyed from this go round is what the fans of the show disliked. Anyway, the scenery in Abu Dhabi is very nice, and there is a lot of the culture there. That part is interesting as well. Things wrap up rather quickly and it’s a bit chaotic, but I suppose that’s how the show is as well. Each of the girls has their own problems and they are dealing with them in their own ways. If you’re a fan of the show, then you may be disappointed in how this one was done, but I feel like it must be nice to find out how the characters are doing and how things are progressing.
