I couldn't help but wonder...

So... Sex and the City 2.  There's not a lot I can say about it that hasn't been said.  However, here's the thing that bothers me. It's not the fact that they went on this extravagant trip, because I can understand that.  I wish I could take an extravagant trip to a beautiful hotel with my own personal butler and spa treatments and lovely things.  It's not the ridiculous plot lines, though I find some to be worse than others.  It's this.

I've felt that SATC the series always teetered on the edge of women power vs. man hating.  Sometimes, it would drift one way or the other, but mostly I thought it kept a good balance of not being man-hating while still being in the power of the woman.  THIS MOVIE, especially Carrie's story, is very... man hating!

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like marriage is a lot of give and take, but it's all worth it.  Sometimes, I get my way and sometimes, Hubs gets his.  It sucks when I don't get my way, but I'd like for him to win too (though... not as much as I win, of course!).  In all seriousness, I revel in my husband's happiness because, well, I love him the most.  He deserves to be happy!  He deserves to get what he wants out of life.  He deserves to do what he wants, within reason :)  For most of this movie, Carrie seemed to want Big to do whatever she wanted and just... accept that what SHE wanted is what THEY wanted.  That's just not right, at least to me.

I'm probably reading way too much into this, but that's what I'm feeling about this.  I read this in a review somewhere, but I truly feel that certain Season One girls would really despise the Second Movie ladies they have become.  I always thought the point of growing older is to actually... grow.
