I doubt I’ll ever get around to confirming this personally, but I’ve been assured by people in a position to know that Sex and the City 2 does not fairly represent the HBO series whence it was spun off, the latter apparently having either gobs of humanity and wit to it or at least some redeeming modicum of those virtues, depending on who you talk to. I certainly hope this is the case, since the TV series has been such a huge and enduring cultural touchstone, and the public health is not well served when these come swimming in liquid pigshit.
