DVD: Sex and the City 2, For retail & rental (Warner)
Sunday 28 November 2010
For the first half-hour, SATC2 is quite enjoyable – self-congratulatory, but bubbling with escapism and spiced with some smart quipping between the self-labelled "girls".
But as the film drags on – and on – the puns get more laboured, the characters get more shrill, and their outfits get more hideous, until you never want to see these solipsistic, money-drenched Marie Antoinettes again. Not so much a sequel as a course of aversion therapy.
