According to this marketing fantasia, New York has had its real women surgically removed.

    Mark, if you want any extra ammo against this piece of crap, just point out to your critics that the red-head in 'Sex and the City' is a lesbian in real-life who plays a heterosexual. If that doesn't sum up the show, I don't know what does: empty, transparent, vaccuous, shallow, false, fraudulent, flatulent, excremental, diabolical....

    Yes Mark go on: I'm female and I also think this movie was not only dreadful schlock and just a bad, storyless, pointless movie, but true to the vacuous, consumerist, anorexia and faked-stupidity inducing drivel that characterised the series and probably the enwhy?see culture that spawned it. I am ashamed to say that I was induced by a misguided and desperate female friend to attend and therefore minutely bumped up those depressingly high box office figures - I take it back! Count my vote out!

    Praise Gucci.
    Thank Blanik a critic who tells it how it is. I'm a bloke, I loved the series (I'm not gay) but gave the film a wide berth as I just knew it was exploitation... Hoo ya Mark.

    At last, someone who talks sense. Mark you are my hero!

    I'm a woman, a real woman not a cardboard cutout who talks about shoes all the time. Neither do any of my female friends. It makes me despair to think that 100 years from now, people may view this film and believe that it was a real and fair representation of women.

    Sadly, I bet that if the franchise had just been called 'In The City' it would not have been half as popular.

    Consumerism is rampant and the world is suffering for it. The credit crunch is looming. Hollywood is no longer run by creative forces (was it ever?) but the advertising industry and corporate finance. No wonder they choose a time like now to put this movie out.

    I absolutely LOATHED the TV series and I will not be wasting either my time or money on watching this at the cinema or on DVD. I would rather fry up my own gizzards for dinner.

    I am astonished by the number of male critics who have written cowardly quasi-positive reviews of this vile tripe. "Oh it's not my sort of thing, but blah, blah, blah." Meanwhile, ironically, female critics such as Manhola Dargis in The New York Times have been happy to identify it as the bilge it is. Well done, Mark. If anybody else calls you a sexist tell them where shove it.

    Hi all

    As unfortunately I am a bit short for time I was wondering if the BBC are going do a written version of the latest film reviews. While Mark is no doubt a good resource and enjoying his video blogs it might be good for those of us in a rush to be able to quickly scan a few lines see if we like the sound of it then go to the cinema.

    Both the videos and written formats would be good. I am no doubt going to be pointed to where this written format is but I will be jiggered (technical term) if I can find it.

    Cheers

    Ps sex and the city reason for celibacy?

    Couldn't agree more. I remember seeing a preview in a newspaper that proclaimed SATC as "The film all women are waiting for". That sort of sweeping statement makes me grind my teeth.

    Just because I'm a 30-something woman doesn't mean that I only think about shoes and relationships. I do like buying shoes, but that takes up about 0.00002% of my brain.

    I'm perfectly willing to believe that lots of people enjoyed this film, but lots of people enjoy Big Brother and I can't stomach that either.

    Thank you Mark. I applaud your bravery, your courage, and your commitment to your craft. You watch, and we laugh at your pain!

    Imagine the love child of Rambo 4 and Sex and the City.

    Imagine Big Brother.

    Urgh!

    Yes Kermode, and you know what, my girlfriend agrees with you totally. You have joined the heroes list she made and stuck on the inside of one of my door cupboards-you sit amongst such luminaries as Bill Hicks, Wayne Shorter and Arsene Wenger. Aren't you lucky.
