Sex and the Lazy
So, after dragging my loving fiance to Sex and the City 2 this weekend, I left feeling tired, unsatisfied and just a little bit dumber.
The biggest issue I had with the movie was the fact that it represented four woman celebrating laziness. The girls and their families were being waited on hand and foot, by servants, drivers nannies and even flight attendants. I used to be able to relate to this show and these characters. But not anymore, I can't just quit my job on a whim like Miranda, or hire help like Charlotte, or buy expensive age-defying vitamins to make me look like I'm twenty-three like Samantha.
Is this what women in the year 2010 have become? Self-obsessed, self-indulgent spoiled brats. Not only have we seen Carrie cry about her inability to find happiness with Big time and time again, but now we have to watch as she complains about him against one of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. I feel so bad for you Carrie, you are on an all expenses paid trip to Abu Dabi wearing thousands of dollars on your body! Please.
And don't even get me started on the lovely toast that Miranda and Charlotte make to "all the women that don't have help". A lot of women don't have help. A lot of women work and raise children by themselves. Are you stupid Micheal Patrick King? I mean, are children just accessories to complete the new New York Gal. I will take a baby boy to go with my baby blue Dior blouse. Please.
When did women become so annoying? Now, I know that people need babysitters to help raise their kids but not because you need a "break" when motherhood gets hard. Guess what, there are no breaks, you have children. If you want to wear nice clothes, go out every night and shop. Don't have children.
The Sex and the City franchise has become a joke. Women fell in love with this great show because it at one time represented the real life adventures of the single woman in New York City. Now, it' s just bunch of women complaining about their privileged lives. Maybe the next movie they make (cause you know there's gonna be a third) we watch as Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte go to the Louisiana Coast or Haiti and do some charity work. I mean, they can still wear their Manolo's and drink Cosmos!
