Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Sarah Jessica Parker slips back into those designer heels to play columnist Carrie Bradshaw in this second spin-off from the iconic TV series. After settling down with Mr Big (Chris Noth) in a plush Manhattan apartment, she ponders the vagaries of marriage, but writer/director Michael Patrick King (who produced the show) is just as hazy as her on the subject. His answer is to create a distraction with a holiday to a first-class resort in Abu Dhabi, where the "girls" totter over sand dunes in fabulous but unsuitable clothes, sip cocktails and giggle at crude jokes. As usual, it's Samantha (Kim Cattrall) doing the trash talk, but it feels lazy and patronising in this context when she comes up against strict religious conservatism. Lacking any kind of insight and missing the familiar New York backdrop, a plot that's as scanty as Samantha's wardrobe will leave even fans feeling short-changed.
