With 145 minutes duration, the film version of Sex and The City / Sex and the City: The Movie once a detailed meeting with the four crazy New Yorkers. And although all – more or less – (already at the end of the last television season was aired in 2004) have found new love and happiness, is, of course, increases in these two hours as primarily one thing – to love.

And it still represents a lot of fun – even on the big cinema screen.
