As for the movie itself? I knew the ENTIRE plot just by watching the trailer. It's not a bad movie, it was quite entertaining, although 30 minutes too long for my taste; but really, Samantha is the only interesting character in the movie. This sequel reeks of desperation: the writers crammed every joke, quip, pun they could come up with in this 2 hour+ movie. The girls' outfits are fabulous, it's definitely Patricia Field's best work by far. But that's just the problem here: everything is so perfect and over the top. Perfect houses, perfect husbands, perfect wardrobes, male servants, hot athletes lounging by the hotel pool...it may be soft porn for women but it doesn't make for a particularly interesting movie.
I sincerely hope this is the last installment. Really. It's time to retire, Carrie.
