Dave Bow! I liked your Sex and the City 2 review (especially since it inspired an Oregonian telemarketer to get incensed enough to impersonate a reporter)! However, I must bring to our readers' attention another review of the film written by Lindy West at our sister paper The Stranger which is so incredibly scathing/wonderful, it has been named NUMBER ONE on the list of The 9 Most Scathing Critical Responses to Sex and the City 2 as decided upon by Movie|Line. Here's a delicious selection:
SATC2 takes everything that I hold dear as a woman and as a human—working hard, contributing to society, not being an entitled cunt like it's my job—and rapes it to death with a stiletto that costs more than my car. It is 146 minutes long, which means that I entered the theater in the bloom of youth and emerged with a family of field mice living in my long, white mustache. This is an entirely inappropriate length for what is essentially a home video of gay men playing with giant Barbie dolls.
