Sex And The Scalper

Are you desperate to get into the Sex and the City: The Movie premiere in NYC on May 27? Yeah, neither are we, but apparently there are some people willing to drop thousands on a chance to see a not-so-great movie about pretty ladies living economically-unfeasable lifestyles. Thanks to Craigslist, scalpers can now reach a larger audience of women who worship the Manolo'd feet of these four women (as well as a few guys looking to buy tickets for their "girlfriends") and the scalpers are charging astronomical prices. Of course, for an audience that views spending $400+ on strappy sandals as "realistic," bidding four figures for a chance to be ignored by Sarah Jessica Parker at a movie premiere probably seems like money well spent.
