Sex and the City


Sarah Jessica Parker and her gal pals have not lost their sex appeal. The big-screen "Sex and the City" — reuniting Parker and TV co-stars Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon — strutted to a $55.7 million opening weekend, far exceeding Hollywood's box office expectations.

That was nearly twice the forecast by distributor Warner Bros., whose head of distribution, Dan Fellman, said he had hoped the movie might deliver a $30 million debut.
"Sex and the City" put up numbers never before seen for a movie aimed mainly at women, who do not tend to rush out in huge numbers for opening weekends the way males do.

"Sex and the City," released under Warner's New Line Cinema banner, had the best debut ever for an R-rated comedy, topping the $45.1 million opening of "American Pie 2."

    I contributed to the opening $$ and what surprised me, my hubby, who as I recall, watched the series with me, expressed interest and he's going to see it today!

    It's interesting how big of an impact the movie has all ready had on fashion and it just came out!

    By the way, I've tagged you for a meme, hope you enjoy it.

    I'm glad I read your review, because this morning I read one that wasn't as encouraging and it depressed me.

    Thanks Chilly. Now I can look forward to seeing the film with as much gusto as I had before I read Mr. or Misses negative review.

    Cheers~ Ann
