In the weeks (and months) leading up to today - the theatrical release of the Sex and the City movie - everyone has been weighing in on what the show's real significance is, whether these wealthy, sexed-up characters are even feminists, and whether Carrie Bradshaw was even a friggin' sex writer. (In my opinion, she wasn't. She was more invested in dating dicks, not sucking them.) But finally, all the talk and the analyzing and searching for deeper meaning in this shallow show can stop for about 2.5 hours today, because I'm liveblogging the movie. I'm going to a regular old movie theater in Manhattan (the city is the 5th character, didn't ya know?). I'm dying to see who exactly is going to be there at 10:15 AM…and what kind of shoes they'll be wearing. Don't worry. I'll be taking pictures.
10:17am: I am stuck in traffic behind a broken down bus! This cabbie is an asshole. I might have to get out and run. [Ed note: The movie is supposed to start at 10:15]
10:37: Two cabs and one subway trip later. I'm finally here! It took me an hour to travel maybe three miles. I already hate this movie.
10:40: These are the shoes I chose to wear. Thank friggin god I didn't wear heels as a joke.
10:41: Big just proposed to Carrie. Kinda.
10:45: This theater is packed and everyone is laughing at the stupid jokes. Although Samantha told Carrie she should get Botox.
10:48: Carrie still has that stupid pink crystal-y phone. Except it's taped together which is a nice touch. She just asked Samantha to be her maid of honor.
10:49: All Charlotte does is scream.
10:50: LOL! Carrie's boss talked her into doing the bride at 40 piece by saying "Vogue airbrushing".
10:52: The wedding photo shoot scene. The Dior dress looks like frothy diarrhea. Vivienne Westwood personally sent Carrie a dress for free.
10:55: Haha. Carrie is becoming far-sighted but won't get glasses. Also Chris Noth: Fake tan much?
10:56: Carrie does research for her new book (about love) at the library.
10:59: Carrie won't tell her friends how often she and Big fuck!
11:02: Also, she calls him "John" now.
11:03: OMG, Big built Carrie a closet just like Mariah Carey's. It looks like a store.
11:04: Charlotte just screamed again. And again.
11:05: I'm cringing. They are trying on outfits to "Walk This Way".
11:07: The Miranda/Steve storyline is actually really good. He just admitted to cheating on her and the old lady in the wheelchair behind me just yelled "Hit him! Hit him!" I'm gonna try to get a picture of her.
11:14: Miranda is like a total bitch.
11:24: Big just jilted her! Because she wouldn't answer the phone in the morning. Seriously, all these people are such babies! who wants to put up with this bullshit? Now Charlotte is screaming at Big. Kristin Davis' throat must've been so sore.
11:28: "Okay so he didn't really jilt her. He freaked for a second, then turned around and went back but Carrie was already embarrassed and then she hit him. The whole thing could've been avoided. Kind of like this movie!
11:31: The reason why the honeymoon was in Mexico is because Carrie paid for it as a surprise.
11:32: Carrie is now in a deep depression in Mexico She's been sleeping and not eating. Speaking of, I'm gonna step out to the concession stand for some breakfast.
11:34: Hahahaha! They actually showed Miranda's thick bush.
11:44: Somehow Carrie got her apartment back. I missed that when I was buying my breakfast.
11:47: I guess I also missed the part about how Carrie can afford Jennifer Hudson.
11:50: It really pisses me off that Carrie isn't computer literate. Her assistant does her email for her while she flips through magazines on her couch.
11:55: Carrie died her hair dark brown and changed her phone number and is complaining about having a different area code. [The Lifestyles Of The Rich And First World! -Ed.]
11:57: Samantha adopted a dog because its a girl who loves to hump and she felt a connection.
11:58: Jennifer Hudson deserves a Razzie for this. She sucks.
12:00 Oh! I forgot to mention that Charlotte shit her pants in Mexico. Literally.
12:02: Carrie bought her assistant a Louis Vuitton bag for Christmas. Carrie is a retard.
12:08: Okay, finally a Carrie outfit I like. Pajamas, boots, fur coat, stupid hat. That's what I call "walking the dog" attire.
12:10: This sad people on New Year's Eve montage is way too long.
12:16: Carrie finally realized that she is a self-obsessed narcissist! And that she uses "I" too much.
12:29: One therapy session and Miranda and Steve are back together. Also, Miranda is the only one to show her tits.
12:32: Samantha has gained like 5 lbs and everyone noticed. What bitches.
12:33: Samantha and Smith just had the most civilized breakup after 5 years.
12:35: I just checked carriebradshaw.com and she wrote a book called MENhattan? Barf.
12:37: Also, Charlotte's little girls are named Lily and Rose. Barf x2.
12:41: Interesting. Carrie always wears a bra to bed, but in this frantic city scene she is running through the streets without one.
12:46: People are actually crying in this theater because Big proposed a second time with a Manolo!
12:51: Last line: "And there they were, four friends who had met as girls and were now women ready to enter the next phase of their lives, dressed head to toe in love. And that's one label that never goes out of style." LOL.
This is the violent wheelchair lady.
This is the next showing lining up. So many mothers and daughters.
Yeah, I'm sure they share their sexual liberation together.
12:59: As I was walking out of the theater a middle aged woman working there asked me if the movie was any good and I made the "so-so" sign with my hand and then she goes, "Yeah, I figured. I never liked that show. I'm a Will & Grace fan myself."
