Sex And The City: The Movie or How To Destroy 6 Seasons in 148 Minutes.

Marriage makes you do things you never thought you’d do. Like watching TV series such as Sex And The City or Desperate Housewives. But, as it is normal in a relationship, you compromise. My wife watches testosterone filled action movies with me every once in a while and I watch female movies that make me want to rip my eyes and ears out in return. But I’d be lying if I’d say that I didn’t enjoy Sex And The City. 10 minutes or so into the first episode of the very first season, I was tempted to stand up and throw myself out of the window. But as we continued with the second and third episode, I slowly started to like it and to got rid of my hate.

It’s simply unwatchable. I had a couple of other unwatched movies who all started screaming “watch me!” after just three minutes. Audio: Stereo english, clearly recorded in a cinema. Video: Okay… Subtitles: Horrible messy english subtitles and chinese. Female view: I had to talk my wife out of divorcing me after this debacle… Best moment: Pushing the eject button on the remote. Conclusion: It’s more fun […]
