No "Sex and the City" movie

Movie a no go


While I would have liked to see the further adventures of the four women, I am glad this won't happen as it would cheapen the effect and impact of the last episode. They were all happy, and to make a movie would necessitate them losing it in some way or another.

I'm surprised. I would have thought this would have a huge box office if it made it into release.

It would have been a likely commercial success, but an artistic catastrophe. What more could you say after that final episode? I don't even like that crap show, but I was moved to catch the final story arcs, which I think were incredibly well-done. Anywhere you would have taken the actresses in a sequel would have been a HUGE let down.

But there are movie possiblities, because I think it might be fun to take the CHARACTERS and set them in the 80's and see what happens. Now I'll concede that the actresses were so intregal to building those characters out of some initally staid writing, but it'd be interesting to see them in cocaine party 80's.

Thank goodness. This was a horrible idea to begin with.

Any chance that the actresses other than Sarah Jessica will have some career opportunities after this show? History seems to hint otherwise, and them being older doesn't help them.

Maybe they'll find work on the stage or something.

Kim Catrall had an active career before the show started, and I think it will only become more active now that it's over.

Thank GOD. The finale was very good, I am more than happy to leave it at that. No reason to muck it up with a movie.

While it would make no sense in terms of plot, I was thinking HBO could kill two birds with one stone by combining a Sopranos movie with one of Sex. They both take place around New York, so why not?
We could have "Big" get whacked by Christopher while Adrianna discusses her problems with Carrie.

...and the body can be shipped to Fisher & Sons for burial.... and Christopher can be caught and sent to Oz ...

Cynthia Nixon IS a stage actress. She was recently Mary Haines in "The Women" when it was revived on Broadway. Interestingly, she REPLACED SJP in "The Heidi Chronicles". Read her bio.

Darren Starr has used Kristin Davis before on "Melrose Place". Wouldn't be surprised if we see more of her as well.

If you provide a link, please make sure it's one that won't take me to a page with about five hundred pop-ups all over the place. After closing them out, I had an eclipse ad get burned through the page in the middle of my reading!

I knew Cattral would continue to work, if nothing else in TV ads. Davis has a very cute quality about her and a youthful look despite her age. I think she would be great in children's movies playing the aunt or mom, not that I would view them.

The movie was a bad idea. The last two seasons sucked. That show just stopped being funny.

Hmmm... went to the link on two different PCs (one with IE, one with Netscape) and did not have any of these pop-up issues you mentioned. How else would you suggest I check? I certainly can't control YOUR browser to prevent pop-ups.... jimminy christmas!

I was being sarcastic, sorry if you took it the wrong way.
