The Hollywood Reporter

By Stephen Farber
So even if Sex and the City 2 consisted of nothing but a two-hour fashion show, it would draw crowds. But it also has the returning cast members in fine comic form, and it has more cutting-edge humor than the first movie.

Sex and the City 2 is a champagne cocktail on a runaway train -- fizzy, sparkly, giddy-making, and splashing all over the place.

A long sit in the shallows, the equivalent of five half-hour episodes strung together.

New York Daily News

It's over the top, and over the rainbow. But just like Carrie's worries about the "sparkle" leaving her marriage, this movie is like once-brilliant Champagne, carelessly left out overnight. And gone flat.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
A dunderheaded comic melodrama with clothes to die for and dialogue to shrink from. It’s downright depressing.

An insult to the memory of the cleverly written show and its celebration of friendship, it's a slap in the face for the four gal pals (often photographed at unflattering angles) and an affront to Muslims.

Twenty minutes in, the movie is already operating at a deficit, and it never recovers.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Real feelings lurk just below the surface--Samantha's terror of growing old, Carrie's fear of eventual tedium in a childless marriage. Yet the surface is where the movie stays, like an old submarine with dead batteries.
