Happily, I was wrong! Some reviewers said it was too long. No, for me it was not long enough. From the moment the four friends walked down the streets of New York City to the last second of the movie I was captivated.
The movie, like the series, is a modern day fairy tale with the main characters playing multiple parts. The four girls are, at times Cinderella, at other times the wicked stepsisters. Some of the men are Prince Charming, but more often you will find them in the part of the Big Bad Wolf.
The series left us with all four girls headed for “happily ever after.” But the movie soon lets us know that only Charlotte and Harry can live the fairy tale. The other three must deal with dragons of one kind or another. And eventually Charlotte must deal with a little reality, ever so brief, uncomfortable and embarrassing.
Sarah Jessica Parker never disappoints me. As Carrie she completely lets the fairy tale die, on screen with no makeup. There she is, just reality staring in the mirror at us. What guts! Then she allows the magic to slowly return. I, for one, love her all the more!
