SATC or DITS?

Yes, we know it’s not Sex and The Shore, but we’re sure somewhere in Baristaville, ladies are making plans to see Sex and The City tonight en masse. In fact, I was invited to join one group of ladies who bought 10 tickets in advance to see the show tonight in Wayne.
I had to pass, because if you’re reading this, that means I’m watching it right now in Paramus, with one of my dearest friends who’s more than a wee bit obsessed with the show (we’ll find out how popcorn at 10 in the morning tastes). Today’s screenings are sold out, packed with Jimmy Choo-shod gal-pals.
Besides being a big movie night, it’s also the night of DITS (Dancin’ In The Streets), the MFEE 15-year anniversary bash at Montclair’s Lackawanna Plaza with special guest David Tyree. Tell us what you’re up to, and while you’re at it, answer this question, too…

  1. 2:30 of SATC??
    Ugh.
    Loved the 23 min. episodes.
    But 2 hours and 30 mins.?
    And what bad reviews.
    So sad.
    I’ll get in on Nexflix in August.

  3. I’ll probably check out this movie once the brouhaha has died down. Reviews are mixed. I am a fan of the show but it remains to be seen how it’ll translate to the big screen.
    I will most likely run a race this Sunday. Undecided whether I’ll do the Montclair 10K or a 5K in West Orange. Will probably decide that morning.

  4. Can you say “straight to video?” I predict this is going to be a big bomb at the box office.

  5. Dahling, straight to video means no theatrical release. This baby has full throttle release. Whether it will recoup it’s costs is another matter entirely. Never was a fan. I think that Robert Smigel’s Fun with Audio had a scathing satire of the TV show. Cain’t find the video online though.

  6. Love how this crap is somehow empowering of women. A bunch of shallow people running around yapping about their $700 shoes and scarves, all the meaningless sex they are having, and how no guy in the world can live up to their lofty standards. And let’s throw in a sassy black chick, even though the NYC we have been living in for the last decade on TV is curiously devoid of blacks, and other minorities, or people living in apartments less than 2000 square feet. I guess this appeals to a certain kind of woman and tons of gay guys. For reasons I’ll never understand.

  7. Poor mets2008, he was forced to watch this….
    Why can’t folks just say they don’t like something, rather than calling it the end of the world because some do?
    And it’s empowering to women because some women find it empowering. See how that works?
    But it’s a girl thing, you wouldn’t understand.
    (And wasn’t this the same rant thrown at Woody Allen?)

  8. You’ll never understand, mets, and neither will I, and neither will our wives and the women rushing to see SITC understand how we can sit and watch baseball for hours on end, even when it’s your beloved Mets giving the Dodgers a shellacking (two two-run homers in a row!).

  9. Love how all this baseball crap is somehow empowering of men. A bunch of shallow mimbos running around yapping about balls, strikes, outs, and extra innings, all the meaningless beer they are drinking, and how no manager in the world can live up to their lofty standards. I guess this appeals to a certain kind of man and tons of butch women. For reasons I’ll never understand.

  10. For me, SITC and Baseball pretty much suck. Seriously, I find that most of the guys I’ve known who are really into watching sports on TV are the same cats that couldn’t catch a football or excel in any other sport, for that matter, if their lives depended on it – bunch of ‘scrubs’ if you ask me.

  11. “Seriously, I find that most of the guys I’ve known who are really into watching sports on TV are the same cats that couldn’t catch a football or excel in any other sport…”
    I don’t know I’d go that far. My fiance is athletic and loves to watch baseball and football. I like football actually but baseball? I’d rather watch paint dry or grass grow. Long, slow and boring. And much too long a season.
    And my God, they take it SOOO seriously! If someone misses a catch or strikes out, you’d think the house caught on fire. The words that come out of that man’s mouth!
    Another thing that irks me: Newspapers (like the Post) that put sports news on the front page. Sports belongs in the sports pages, period. Unless, of course, it’s the World Series or the Superbowl. There’s more important news in the world that who missed a fly ball.

  12. Now, now, MM.
    Just cause you don’t like America’s pastime, doesn’t mean you have to be so cruel to those of us who do.
    I think you’re just mad that there is no running channel.

  13. I never heard a person in my life make the silly argument that watching baseball is “empowering” for men. Must have missed that. But somehow listening to a bunch of airheads yakking away about high heel shoes and orgasms over pink cosmos is empowering. Gee, maybe we should work it into the education system somehow if it’s so friggin’ important.

  14. “But somehow listening to a bunch of airheads yakking away about high heel shoes and orgasms over pink cosmos is empowering. Gee, maybe we should work it into the education system somehow if it’s so friggin’ important.”
    Who said that SITC is empowering? Not me. I will say that they have one helluva publicist, though. You can’t pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV or radio without being bombarded with it.

  15. Miss M, if you must discuss a sport which appeals to “butch women,” then it’s more likely the WNBA. Which I don’t think has ever quite caught on with guys whatever their sexual preference.

  16. “Dahling, straight to video means no theatrical release.”
    I know… I meant it should have been straight to video. This sucker has made-for-tv movie all over it.
    As for men and baseball, I’m one man that has never understood that “love affair.” Booooooring. That and football and golf are snorefests. Gimme Britcom night any night.

  17. It earned 26.9 million in one day. It was not good, but it was still fun to laugh and hoot at the antics. I’m all for seeing and appreciating rich, complicated cinema, but sometimes it’s fun to just be silly with your girlfriends and drool over closets and hot guys and over the top fashion.

  18. Ah, apparently no love for DITS.
    Regarding first weekend numbers for SATC, keep in mind, like Miss M, a lot of people will wait for the noise to die down before seeing the flick. I think the first two/three weeks will be much more telling.
