More Info:
  • Mick LaSalle

    The best American movie about women so far this year, and probably the best that will be made this year.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    In its cinematic incarnation, Sex and the City has lost none of its bawdiness yet gained a more profound sense of soberness. Parker, especially, who in the last season of the show bordered on insufferable in her affected squeaks and shrieks, is allowed to go to very dark places – to be, in fact, quite unfabulous.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jessica Reaves

    Michael Patrick King's screenplay hits all the right notes, building on the warmth and familiarity of the series (which King also wrote).

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A movie that taps directly back into the show's primal appeal, which is the sweet, sad, saucy delight of sharing these women's company.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    The movie's beating heart is the friendship between the women, who had found some sort of happiness by the show's 2004 finale. Now they're all at a personal crossroads and need one another more than ever.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    Can't rightly be called a romantic comedy in the dismal, contemporary sense, though it is at times romantic and is consistently very funny. It's also emotionally realistic, even brutal.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    The four women couldn't be better - or better matched. As always, Parker is the standout, cracking your heart and cracking you up with equal ease.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Amid the style, sass and sexiness is plenty of sentimentality, especially at the satisfying conclusion.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Emily Rems

    It gives you everything you ever loved about the series, and blows it out into super-size cinematic proportions.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Athima Chansanchai

    In this film, the clothes and the city are characters as vital as the four leads, and they don't disappoint. But don't expect any trend-setting in the manner of the series. This is a runway that begins and ends with the movie.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Sex and the City: The Motion Picture is a joyful wallow. And it's more: In this summer of do-overs (The Incredible Hulk, a new Batman versus a new Joker), it's what the series finale should have been.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    It's less a movie than a delivery system for sensory pleasures, sunny romance and designer-label stuff that in real life would result in diabetic shock (or at least a ruined credit rating).

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Genevieve Koski

    Ultimately, Sex And The City serves as a glitter-laced love letter to its fans, which is really all it needs to be.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    At times, the movie resembled nothing so much as Kabuki with Cosmos.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Writer-director Michael Patrick King, the creative force behind the show's later seasons, can't disguise the fact that the movie is basically five TV episodes strung together (only three hit the mark). But his script is more honest about aging than anything in "Indy 4."

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    For the moment, King has restored women to their rightful place in a genre that is nothing without them. But, sadly, that genre isn't romantic comedy. It's the chick flick.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Unfortunately, where episodes of the series used to take their cue from a question posed by one of Carrie's columns, writer-director Michael Patrick King never finds that focus, and Sex and the City loses its tart edge in the process.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • William Thomas

    If you are immune to the charms of Carrie and co., this will do little to convert you. Still, it has more than enough sass, style and sentiment to keep the faithful satisfied. Add a star if you're a fan.

    Empire Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    It more or less plays like a five-episode arc of the series, which is a strength and a weakness.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    If this fabulously decked-out foursome is self-absorbed enough to be inadvertently cruel on occasion, they also suffer lots of guilt -- though their angst is rendered somewhat less angsty for viewers by the zingers, the designers, and the cheerfully objectified men on display.

    NPR Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Here is a 145-minute movie containing one (1) line of truly witty dialogue: "Her 40s is the last age at which a bride can be photographed without the unintended Diane Arbus subtext."

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Turns out to be a more disappointment than joyful reunion, a tedious and desperately drawn-out affair that tests your patience even as it brazenly courts (and often earns) your contempt.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    It's a mainstreamed, big-screen version of the bowdlerized, endlessly syndicated version of the show, not the raunchy original.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    For those who do not consider themselves to be among the Sex and the City faithful, this is a painful experience, perhaps the longest 148 minutes likely to be spent in a movie theater this year. Watching grass grow is more dramatically satisfying.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Though Sex and the City is every bit as busy as its HBO progenitor was, it's virtually plotless, not to mention pointless.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    I have the anachronistic notion that romantic comedies needn't be exclusively partial to one gender; they should be critical and loving and true to both. So I'll soldier on with my mixed, distant, defiantly ignorant review of this 142-minute trifle -- which comes close to being the longest non-musical romantic comedy in Hollywood history.

    Time Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Best in its small moments, the movie should find receptive gal pals congregating for the mother of all viewing parties.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    So much has been written about the show's emotional importance to single women that I can't possibly add anything, except to say that, in both its TV and movie incarnations, the empty materialism and sincere longing for love always manage to cancel each other out, leaving behind nothing but what this started out as--a sitcom.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Sex and the City, as a film, is a testament to bad faith. It wants its characters to eat their wedding cake and have it, too.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    The real problem is that Sex and the City is, except for a few laughs, mostly just irritating.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Parker IS to blame for the self-consciousness of her performance. She spends much of the movie swanning, not acting: Nearly every movement, every gesture, seems conceived for the benefit of the camera, as opposed to the truth of the character. Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    And an attempt to address the series' endemic whiteness by adding a subaltern black character--Jennifer Hudson as Carrie's designer-bag-toting Girl Friday--is a major misfire that only underscores our heroine's oblivious entitlement

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    In contrast to the series, which was quick-witted, fast-paced and self-ironic -- oh, and sexy -- the movie is earnest, often aimless (couldn't anyone cook up a plot?), visually bland (except for the fashion shows) and, at two minutes short of 2½ hours, a decreasingly amiable meander.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Feels like it was written and directed by an audience focus group in Omaha?

    New York Post Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    As a film, it's flabby and utterly predictable.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    I wish Ms. Parker had let that bee in her bonnet go silent, because the movie that she and Mr. King have come up with is the pits, a vulgar, shrill, deeply shallow -- and, at 2 hours and 22 turgid minutes, overlong -- addendum to a show that had, over the years, evolved and expanded in surprising ways.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Made me laugh precisely once, as a magazine editor let fly with a Diane Arbus gag. It is no coincidence that she is played by Candice Bergen, who gets just the one scene, but who is nonetheless the only bona-fide movie star on show.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Bad summer films, full of furious hype and signifying nothing, are hardly exceptional these days, nor is the sound they typically make: the dull scrape of a culture hitting rock bottom. Yet this one seems uniquely bad; this one is a threshold-breaker with a different sound, the crack of rock-bottom giving way to a whole deeper layer of magma.
