NO SPOILERS, I PROMISE!
Although I’d love to tell you about Carrie’s…oh nevermind!
Let me preface this post with a disclaimer. I am not a movie critic. However, I am a HUGE SATC fan. One of my best memories back in Illinois was gathering in my basement to watch the series finale with all my girlfriends and a lot of Cosmos. We all screamed outloud when Mr. Big’s real name was displayed on her cell phone!
I caught the 12:35 showing at the Regal in Escondido this afternoon. I met my future sister in law, Melissa there. When the opening song came on, she admitted to goosebumps, while I had tears in my eyes. Yes, we were that excited. So were the 60 other women (and 2 men) in the theatre.
My excitement lasted about 30 minutes in to the movie. Then I realized that I am used to the show being 30 minutes! I was ready for everything to be resolved and Carrie to type something profound on her Mac. But I got over that feeling fast. The movie continued to enthrall me the entire 2.5 hours (or something close to that).
I cried 5 times. Two of those times actual crocodile sized tears ran down my cheek. These are characters that I have grown to know and love over the last 10 years. I didn’t realize it had been 10 years until the last scene of the movie (if you are a hardcore fan, you will know what I mean when you see it).
And to those of you that were only occasional watchers, you will enjoy this too! They do a mini recap of the entire 6 seasons and the 4 main characters in the opening credits.
There was one little glitch with the projector at the theatre. At a touching scene between Carrie and Big right in the begining, you could completely see the boom mic’s over their head the entire time! Not sure what happened, but someone complained and by the next scene it was back to normal.
So bottom line is, leave your man at home, grab your closest girlfriends and get to the movies…tonight!
ps You might see me there…I will be going to see it again!
