I really enjoyed the HBO series Sex and the City, but for some reason the movie lacked the same spark. Sex and the City is a follow up of where the TV series left off. We get to see what has happened to Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha. But the characters seemed a little different to me; like the 5 years (or however many) gap from TV series to film caused them to forget their character. For example, Carrie seemed so much whinier and Miranda was incredibly more irritable, for lack of a better word. Samantha and Charlotte didn’t seem to change much, and I also didn’t like the wedding between Carrie and Mr. Big. Let’s just say if he were to do that to me after as many chances as I gave him, there never would have been another ceremony. Now this could just be my pregnancy hormones not enjoying this movie, but I highly doubt it. I guess the main thing this movie teaches, which is more than I can say for some movies, is the better the communication - the better the relationship. 2 ½ paws!
The Zohan plays more like a Saturday Night Live skit gone way over on time, but if you like goofy Adam Sandler movies then it hits home. This is definitely not a serious movie, but that’s also what makes it funny. An Israeli counter terrorist comes to America to leave behind the turmoils of war and follow his dream to style hair. Only it’s his servicing of his clients that has nothing to do with their hair that turns this little salon into a gigolo cut and curl. His enemies finally catch up with him and we get a cheesy let’s all get along scene and all turns out well between the Palestinians and Israeli’s; if it were only that easy. I got a little insight to this movie since I’m married to a Salon owner but ya’ll will laugh at its off the wall humor too. 2 ½ paws.
