Carried by the TV Series, I watched the movie “Sex and the City 2” today. The regular characters make the movie watchable, the plot around the visit to Abu Dhabi was initially exciting and then turned boring. I would have liked to see more of Abu Dhabi outdoors and the girls mixing with people of the city, rather it turned out to be inside the hotel only and the one market scene they had was clearly shot inside Hollywood studios with a bad recreation of the Middle East city. The movie was too long too, which made me wonder how some stories are fit only for 20 Minutes TV Series format and not suited for 90-120 Minutes full-length film.
