Oprah told Sarah Jessica Parker that she had done some of her best acting in the movie. I agree. I also loved the emergence of Charlotte's character as someone to be reckoned with but not at the expense of her essential Charlotte-ness. During the Oprah interview, SJP said they had trouble securing financing for the movie because it was produced by a women and starred four women. Apparently, women aren't a good risk in Hollywood. We can only hope that this weekend served as a big wake-up call to the powers that be in the movie business: if you build it for us, we will come—in droves, to the tune of nearly $56 million—enough to knock Indiana Jones out of first place.
My favorite part? The writing, of course! Witty, sentimental, sexy, sweet, ironic... Something for every taste. Worth the four-year wait? You bet. Carrie, Mr. Big, a closet... Sigh. Who could ask for anything more? What did you think?
