It's usually great to see the four ladies together, but this second movie sequel to the HBO series simply doesn't spend enough time in "the city," proving just how pivotal a character New York also is in this franchise.
The foursome heads off to Abu Dhabi when Samantha's ( Kim Cattrall) business dealings prompt her to bring along Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte ( Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis). Somewhat incredibly, the now-married Carrie runs into former flame Aidan ( John Corbett) while abroad; Chris Noth, David Eigenberg, Evan Handler and Jason Lewis also return. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; soundtrack featurette. ** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
