Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Ten years after meeting "Mr Big", New York "sexpert" Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) finally gets closure on her dating dilemmas in this big-screen spin-off from the iconic TV show. As ever, Parker brims with infectious whimsy - doubly so when Big (Chris Noth) pops the question. There's rather too much cooing over dresses and shoes for half-an-hour afterwards, but then Carrie and her gal pals are forced to reassess life's priorities beyond bagging the latest Manolo Blahniks. It's the ups and downs between friends that resonate more than the love story, and although some gags veer into American Pie territory, there is plenty of dry humour, too - Kim Cattrall is especially wicked as saucy Samantha. Fans will relish all the urbanite introspection and colourful girl talk, even if the ending doesn't really add much to the 2004 series finale.
