sex and the city

we felt like we were the only ones left who hadn't seen "sex and the city," so last night, before it ends its run, we caught the 7:35pm showing at power plant mall. although the movie felt more like a two-and-a-half hour extended finale episode of the HBO series, we enjoyed it and really liked it. we liked carrie, the girls, the fashion, the witty one-liners... now we would've LOVED it if it were not for those damn CUTS!!! who's responsible for this? who decides that the filipino audience is not ready or mature enough to see some nudity on the big screen or, jeez, a couple of men kissing?? just because a movie has the word SEX in it doesn't mean it's all about SEX. if they watched it, paid attention, and understood it, then they would know that the movie is all about LOVE. carrie said so. IN THE BEGINNING. AND ALL THROUGHOUT THE MOVIE. now if they were going to splice and dice a film, they could at least do it seamlessly, and not cut up bits of dialogue that make you go, whaaa?? right from the opening scene, as the four girls walked down the street and samantha spots this cute guy who goes straight to another cute guy and are about to kiss then cut! we knew this was going to be bad... so we also missed seeing scenes of a husband and wife making love, women's breasts, and a man's well-chiseled butt. watching the news, MTV, anything on TV really, and hello youtube all show way more than this. we knew we should've waited for the deebeedee... or for its run on HBO by next year...

I totally agree. It was a watered down version of the uncut one. The SATC Movie they showed in the States was THE "sh*t"! The MTRCB people are overly KJ now. They also cut out gorey bits in suspense thrillers.

Sex and the City seems to have a polarizing effect on both men and women... people either love the movie or they hate it
