(Newser) Sex and the City: The Movie will probably delight die-hard fans but disappoint others, critics say. “I am not the person to review this movie,” admits Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times—not a fanwho writes that he counted only “one line of truly witty dialogue.” Nevertheless, “this is probably the exact Sex and the City film that fans of the TV series are lusting for.”

Claudia Puig of USA Today calls the much-hyped flick “an unabashed guilty pleasure that goes down as smoothly as a chilled cosmo.” With the leading ladies now in their 40s, the movie is honest about aging, but “basically five TV episodes strung together,” Peter Travers writes in Rolling Stone.
