Of course, whenever a half-hour show gets extrapolated into a full length movie, the central issue the creators must struggle with is almost always the same: what works very well in half an hour minus commercial breaks rarely works out so well in a full length movie. The writers must choose between sticking with the tried and tested formula, and so almost inevitably producing mediocrity, or alternatively, taking some very real creative risks with the way they approach and structure the entire piece.
In this case...
Let's just say they chose not to take those risks.
When watching this movie there were times where I really felt as if I were watching a scene from the TV series played out in slow motion. In a typical episode the TV show communicated more in one minute than the film would in ten. There were other times when the film simply dragged, even to the point where it was just plain boring. To be fair, it wasn't all like this. There were times in the film, mainly around the middle, where I genuinely got caught up in the characters, the world they inhabited, and what they were doing. It's just that there were also plenty of times when I didn't. Given that this film came in at over two and a quarter hours, I can't help but feel that it would've benefited from some more proactive editing. It's almost as if, having lived so long under the tyranny of the 22 minute half hour, the writers and editors never developed the ability to impose discipline from within.Read more ›
This movie starts with a recap, so even those who never watched the show can somewhat follow along. Some of the "inside" jokes later in the movie maybe lost on them, but no big deal. The writers really hit the ball out of the park on this one.
I gave the movie 4 stars instead of 5 due to the sparseness of the extra features. It is probably worth buying the special edition if you are a true SATC fan.
The problem is the DVD extras are sadly lacking. All we get is a director's commentary. You'd think with the fashions-a-go-go and the whole "will/won't they do a movie" controversy that there could have been more extras on here.
