Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), and Charlotte (Kristen Davis) certainly lived up to their reputations and kept their characters alive in “Sex and the City 2” as the powerful, gorgeous, fun women they have become known as.

In SATC2, even though the girls are taken out of the city and years have passed, they still share this unbreakable bond. No matter what problem comes their way, they always handle it in style and together.

As if the girls don’t get themselves in enough trouble in Abu Dhabi – a place they used to escape the harsh realities of their not-always-so-glamorous NYC lives – the second movie is filled with a few surprises when some of their past resurfaces.

Fashion! Dressing Abu Dhabi style does not disappoint. Stepping off the plane into the Middle East the girls bring style to the foreign land with their colorful and sparkly filled outfits. Their trendsetting personalities end up getting them into some not so pretty situations. Parts of the movie may seem unrealistic, but the extravagant personalities of the characters justify the over-the-top nature of movie.

Having seen all of the seasons and the first “Sex and the City” movie, I would still recommend seeing “Sex and the City 2.” SATC2, if anything, exceeds its expectations. Unlike most sequels SATC2 remained hilarious, filled with fabulous fashion and relevant to the previous story lines of the TV-show and first movie. Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte are as funny and stylish as ever.

“Sex and the City 2” has the perfect mix of comic scenes and the more dramatic moments. The four actresses do a ‘fabulous’ job, thus making this movie a success. Dedicated or new fans will not be dissatisfied.
