It's enjoyable, and its intentions are beautiful, but if the show wants to depict the reality of life as a gay person in today's world, it is far off the mark

Sex and the City girls fly back and think of England

They've done several television series, they've done the film and now they've done the sequel. And last night, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon were all glammed up for the UK premiere of Sex and the City 2 at the Odeon Leicester Square in London.

'Sex and the City' film coup

The movie version of Sex and the City has become the fastest-selling DVD of 2008. Shoppers bought 920,000 copies of the film in the first week of its release, according to the Official Chart Company.

DVD: Sex and the City: the Movie

Entertainment in Video Well, it's called 'Sex and the City: the Movie', but let's be honest, it was never a movie at all, just an extra-extra-long episode of the TV series, and a pointless one at that: the characters' storylines had all been wrapped up perfectly snugly on television. Still, if you want one more girls' night in with Carrie and co, it has all the hugging, cocktails, quips, hugging, catwalk montages and hugging you could possibly desire. Think of it as a reunion party. Fans of the series will wallow to their hearts' content. Anyone who isn't a fan already will feel like a gate-crasher.

Paperback: Girls of Riyadh, by Rajaa Alsanea

Banned in Saudi Arabia when it was published in 2005, Rajaa Alsanea's bold and funny portrait of four young women is now a global best-seller and has become known, for good or ill, as a Saudi Sex and the City. A witty and humane novel, set in a world where love fol-lows the laws of Islam and the rules of email etiquette, it shows the great sorrows and the petty irritations of women's lives and explains how marriage is like a watermelon on a knife.

There's a new genre in Tinseltown, and it's all about female friendship

Blockbusters are Hollywood's favourite films, right? Wrong. There's a new genre in town that has turned conventional wisdom about cinema-goers on its head. While male teenagers still make up the biggest audience in US cinemas (hence the endless array of superhero/cop/ disaster themes), women are demanding films that they want to see – and they are starting to get them.

'Sex and the City' hoping to whip Indiana Jones

This weekend's box-office battle between the year's top two films is firmly divided along gender lines. But can Carrie and co win the day?
