“Men, babies. It doesn’t matter. We’re soul mates.” That about sums up the trailer for Sex and the City 2, another trashy, frivolous romp through a lot of shit most of us can’t afford and wouldn’t bother with, if we could. The ladies are restless — marriage, kids, and menopause have got them down, so they decide to take a trip to Abu Dhabi, because of course they do. There, they ride camels, drink champagne, and maybe Kristen Davis will get violent diarrhea again, cause that was so much fun in the last film.
It looks terrible. BUT. Sad as it is to say, for those of us who actually remember when the television series was decent, years and years ago, there’s a moment in the trailer that features John Corbett that will give you a fleeting reminder of that. Strangely, he’s not listed in the iMDB credits. Perhaps it was supposed to be a surprise, but lack of interest in the sequel forced them to show their hand? Whatever. John Corbett is always fantastic.
Who the hell wouldn’t choose Corbett over Chris Noth?
