Sex and The City *** (For The Crawley Observer)

Yes, this is the most feminine focused film known to man but that's a given!

Leading from the ever popular Sex and The City series, the film gives you the same roller coaster ride you would expect from the characters and situations. And even if you didn't get into the TV shows like me, it's still a brilliant film (speaking from a female perspective, of course).

Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon are 4 actresses playing their character's effortlessly, making it not only enjoyable to watch but also believable. They're in your face, sensitive, funny, caring and bitchy - Every girl imaginable could relate to this film. And with fabulous designer shoes, bags, dresses, this is a life any girl would want to be part of.

However, this film could also appeal to men too. It has a compelling storyline focused around relationships and conceivably men might just learn a few tricks of the trade in how to handle relationship issues. But ultimately, and without a doubt, it's a chick-flick.

The anticipation of this film isn't an anti-climax by any means. Michael Patrick King who has written for Sex and The City previously has packed everything into this film that you would expect from the TV series. There isn't one point in this that you are let down by the narrative. It relates to the shows as well as making a storyline for itself in the film.

Basically, it's a whole other series in one film. Of course it glamorises the lives of the women living in L.A. and New York, but it works well as it feeds into the ultimate female fantasy of leading such a lifestyle. It has the most perfect ending to crown this fabulous, glorious film meaning you leave the cinema on a high.

So girls, get a group of you and get ready to laugh, cry and have a great time!
