Sex and the City

Last night I went to see "Sex and the City" the movie with two of my galfriends. We went to the theater on 13th and 3rd at 8:30 and there must have been 4 or 5 additional screens in the theater playing the movie besides the showing we went to. We got there at 8 and we had to wait in line in the coordidor. When we finally got in and sat down the seat filled up in 2.0 seconds. Luckily we were at the beginning of the line and got seat right away.

Waiting for the movie to start was interesting. Margot and I were saving a seat for Meredith and we had to fight a crazy, drunk bag lady so that she wouldn't sit in Mere's seat. She kept telling us "I'll get up when she gets here."

We saw a couple awesome chick flick previews - "Mama Mia" and "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants II" and "He's Just Not Into You". And then the movie started. Hello! I loved it! The people that gave the movie horrible reviews obviously don't understand the SATC is supposed to be ridiculous and stupid and unbelievable. Hello, that's why it is so awesome. They're cartoons in fancy clothes. Anyway, I couldn't have asked for more and I highly reccommend seeing it (and sneaking in some beer or wine).

In other SATC news...everyone in NYC should pick up a copy of the Daily News today. There is an awesome spread by Piper Weiss (an extraordinarily talented writer, editor and cultural observer). With photos she cleverly points out that the Golden Girls may have more influence over Hollywood than anyone suspected.
