Sex and The City

Yes, I admit I am a huge fan of this show and now movie. Yes, I preordered movie tickets, organized a girl’s night out, and even bought an outfit for the movie. I couldn’t help myself. This is the ULTIMATE chick flick; it truly doesn’t get any better. The purpose of this post isn’t to discuss the show nor the movie, but rather my experience during the opening weekend.

So on Friday afternoon I went to the mall and spent $300 on my outfit (don’t judge me, lol). I used the movie as justification to buy the dress and shoes that I will enjoy on many occasions to follow. So we ended up getting tickets to the 10:45pm show (the only time left) at a studio and movie grill. There was a huge crowd in the theater’s main lobby (not trying to purchase tickets) waiting to be seated. It was like a concert or waiting in line at an amusement park. There were so many women dressed to kill (including me) all to see a movie-not the premier. There were also a large number of gay men as well (not surprisingly).

This movie is fantastic and it was exciting to be a part of moment that goes down in movie history. When will people ever again go out of their way to see a movie, organize group activities to see the damn movie, and on top of all of that get all dressed up to sit on your ass a little over two hours, lol.

I've never been a big fan of the show; however, my long standing crush on Chris Noth is what got me interested in watching it from time to time.

While I doubt I'll go all out (it would be passe now anyway) to see the movie, I think I'll go on Friday night just to see my crush on the big screen. *smile*

Post a pic of you in your hot outfit/shoes.

I got jazzed up for the movie while my friend was stressed looking for an outfit. I really enjoyed it though. There was group of like 15 wives that hopped out a stretch limo all jazzed up to see the movie. It was crazy.

I must see this $300 outfit!

My office was privy to a private screening in which all of my co-workers were dressed to the nines. I didn't plan on going because I had a hair appointment, but I ended up taking off the next day and rescheduling my hair appointment. LOL. It was that serious. It was a great movie.

I love that you dressed up that is so hot! What did you wear?

TwentyTwo said...

My friends and I did the same thing. The movie was great! Definitely one for the fans and a great movie/girlfriend experience.

t.c.:Exactly, I love the unity. That show/movie is colorless, gender friendly, and appeals to all walks of life.

Blu- Yes, Chris is so nice looking and I love his character. Me and my crew suck ass, we didn’t even take pictures (lol). However, I will be rocking that bad boy a few more times. ☺

Torrance- thanks for the drive by. It’s not too late to catch on the SATC madness ☺

Younblackbeauty- Was it not fun to see people go all out? I’ll take a picture the next I rock my fit.

j.a.c-I am not mad at you! Lol. Yes, by far the BEST movie in a while. The bar has been risen for 2008’s films. Its not always about killing people and superheroes ☺

preciousgem- I got you covered on the outfit, lol.

Twentytwo- the questions are: What female didn’t see this movie? Followed by: If not, what the hell is wrong with you? ☺

That sound so cute. I didn't go see the movie yet..I want to see it DVD form. I will do a big event when I get it in my hot little hands. I don't have friend who are fans of the show ( I know I have so boring folks). SATC was my guilty pleasure when I was married. I glad to see someone who experience the frenzy!!
