I love Sarah Jessica Parker, and I enjoy the character of Mr. Big as played by Chris Noth. The Carrie and Mr. Big elements of this film are definitely fun, but at 2 1/2 hours, this big-screen adaptation of the popular TV show cannot maintain a consistent level of entertainment. Everybodys back, and unfortunately, that means we have to listen to Kim Cattrall speak in her Samantha voice. Kristin Davis is cute as Charlotte (even as her character craps her pants), and Cynthia Nixon does OK work as Miranda, but a subplot involving Samantha in Los Angeles drags down the film. Fans of the show will be happy, and nonfans will be in hell. Michael Patrick King should have cut out a half-hour, so why not just lose Samantha? I think that wouldve helped. That, and some Maalox for Charlotte.
