It’s time to be carried away once again as we celebrate the release of Sex and the City 2
It’s that time again – Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha are heading back to the big screen for more fun, more fashion and the of course friendship. To mark the occasion, we take a look at ten of our favourite episodes from the six seasoned show:
(1) Models and Mortals
Sex, fashion, puns- the show’s second episode has it all and was a sign of things to come; Miranda makes the mistake of going out with a “modelizer” (someone who’s obsessed with models)and Samantha chooses to go out with a modelizer who secretly videotapes his sexual encounters (much to her excitement).
(2) Ex and The City
The end of season two, Mr Big is marrying the 25-year old Natasha and Carrie decides its time to befriend her once great love. In a pivotal scene, the girls commiserated over cocktails, and Carrie realized that she was like the Barbra Streisand character Ka-Ka-Ka-Katie from ‘The Way We Were’. In the final scene, Carrie and Mr Big repeat that famous moment between Katie and Hubbell in ‘The Way We Were’. “Your girl is lovely, Hubbell,” Carrie says. “I don’t get it,” Big replies. Carrie looked at him sadly and said, “And you never did.” A hark back to another girly classic, even Miranda would be in tears…
(3) Boy Girl, Boy Girl
Taking a break from the Big escapades, Carrie dates a 20-something bisexual. The result – a rather uncomfortable lesbian kissing scene between SJP and Alanis Morissette. Well wouldn’t you be uncomfortable kissing Morissette?
(4) Sex and Another City
New York may be the show’s 5th character, but in this two parter the girls are off to L.A., where we meet Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Gellar, a manic Matthew Mcconaughey and, of course, no visit to L.A. would be complete without a trip to the playboy mansion and its infamous grotto. Still our favourite bit: Charlotte learns what a ‘brazilian’ is (and she learns it the hard way!)
(5) The Real Me
Carrie models for Dolce and Gabbana in a New York fashion show. This is Sex and the City at its best. Great music, great fashion and puns galore as Carrie falls flat on the runway, Best line: “Oh my god she’s fashion roadkill!’ as Heidi Klum steps over the fallen writer- classic.
