Sex and the City Movie Decadence

How Do You Prefer Our SATC Girls — Vacay or Real Way?

I'm not about to argue that Sex and the City, even before the movie, didn't allow some unrealistic indulgences. But as a whole, the series that lived on HBO, pre-Hollywood makeover, represented a pretty real-life view of relationships, work, and life in New York for the single 30-something girl. We saw Carrie in t-shirts, pajamas, jeans, and sneakers, right along with the rest of the gals — and it reminded us of our friends and people we know.

Now, in the wake of Hollywood theatrics, a mega-movie budget, and an Abu Dhabi vacation, the girls are living far beyond the means they once had in their Manhattan days, about a decade ago. Instead of a picnic in the park or grabbing a New York slice of pizza, Carrie, Sam, Charlotte, and Miranda have literally landed in the lap of luxury, complete with a $10 million budget for wardrobe alone. In one scene, Carrie dons a pair of jeans that cost $4,000, making $500 Jimmy Choos seem like chump change. Obviously, with marriage and career successes, these women have more cash to spend, but the decadence in this film rivals royalty, and while it's certainly entertaining and pretty to look at it, these girls are far from where we last saw them. So, tell me, which do you prefer — is the luxurious lifestyle more fun to watch or did you like it best when the gang was a little more relatable?

I hated the first movie and don't plan on seeing the sequel... I don't care about the decadence, the diarrhea jokes and giant muff were what really ruined it for me.
