Overwhelming 86 percent of reviewers panned sequel
So it appears bad reviews aren’t going to stop women from seeing “Sex and the City 2.”
That’s a good thing for Warner Bros. and New Line, because the reviews are ridiculously, breathtakingly, historically bad.
That score puts it just above the “Nightmare on Elm Street” reboot (13%), Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler's irresponsibly bad “The Bounty Hunter” (8%) and Brendan Fraser’s latest, “Furry Vengeance” (6%) among wide releases still in theaters.
By comparison, here are Tomatometer ratings for other recent movies:
How to Train Your Dragon: 98%
Iron Man 2: 74%
Date Night: 68%
Hot Tub Time Machine: 63%
Alice in Wonderland: 51%
Just scanning the “Sex And The City 2” reviews I feel like I need an EMT’s license.
“The most insulting and dangerous film for women since Pretty Woman. But with less charm.”
The Tomatoes’ “Sex” consensus: “Straining under a thin plot stretched to its limit by a bloated running time, Sex and the City 2 adds an unfortunate coda to the long-running HBO series.”
Compared to most of ‘em, that's downright glowing.
