“..this movie is like once-brilliant Champagne, carelessly left out overnight. And gone flat..”
by Amy Diluna [NY Daily News]

“..this is a sequel that doesn't come close to justifying its existence..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]

“..this film - the Sexless and the Self-Pitying - is as unfunny and shapeless as another famed desert epic. Just think of it as "Bitchtar"..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2.5 of 5

“..the satire is sagging, the irony's atrophied and the funny is flabby..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
2.5 of 4

“..Sex and the City 2 is a champagne cocktail on a runaway train - fizzy, sparkly, giddy-making, and splashing all over the place..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]

“..SATC2 is best when it's about the women, not the wardrobe..”
by Connie Ogle [Miami Herald]

“..Now, while fans struggle to break even, Sex and the City 2 rubs their noses in the fantasy, at eight bucks a pop..”
by Steve Persall [St. Petersburg Times]

“..Maybe, though, that next installment could be a little shorter..”
by Sara Maria Vizcarrondo [Boxoffice Magazine]

“..It's worse than Sex and the City 1, and that alone is a remarkable achievement..”
by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail]
2 of 4

“..It's slower and more of an eye-roller than the first film, but also a lot more about the women..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
1.5 of 4

“..If Sex and the City 2 is even less significant than its predecessor, it's because it runs on one less interesting storyline..”
by Ed Gonzalez [Slant Magazine]

“..Film franchises usually don't flatline this quickly. This Sex feels more like a tired fourth go than a triumphant second..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]

“..As Carrie might type on her laptop while giving one of her girly little shrugs, When did Sex and the City become so long and mean so little?..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]

“..an affront to Muslims..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“.."Sex and the City 2" will never be compared to "The Godfather, Part II." But it's everything a fan could want in a sequel..”
by Gail Pennington [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

“.."Sex and the City 2" isn't a feature film as much as it is consumer porn..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“.."Sex and the City 2" is about someone else's boredom, someone else's vacation and ultimately someone else's desire to exploit that vicarious pleasure for profit. Which isn't much fun at all..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]


“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]


“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]


“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]


“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]


“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]


“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]


“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]


“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]


“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
