Sex and the Seriously Lame

Carrie on? Really?

Are you Tim Gunn?

This is quite possibly the most ridiculous teaser poster I've ever come across. I mean... CARRIE ON? Is this "Taglines 101" or something?

I tolerated it when the first movie used "Get Carried Away."

Alright, I thought to myself, it's okay... Carrie is a fan of puns. They're trying to be cute. I get it. Carrie kinda looks like she's about to get carried away...the look on her face, the grin, it's all working for me. The dress was fab, the windblown hair was fun, the black and pink theme was hot...

But Carrie On? I just... I don't approve.

And, I have a few questions.

Why does Carrie look surprised? Why does her neck look as if it has sprouted two or three extra inches since the last time we saw her? Why does it look like Manhattan is exploding in a sea of white light behind her? Why do her sunglasses have a weird gold reflection of the sky? If she's walking down the street in the city, shouldn't the reflection be other people? Or buildings? Anything besides the sky, considering she's in the middle of a skyscraper-filled city?

Why is she wearing a dress from Forever 21? Not that there is anything wrong with Forever 21 because there absolutely is not. I shop there all the time, but for a Sex and the City poster? They could have done better. Much, much better. The whole damn point of the show is the fashion. I have no problem with mixing and matching high and low end items, but not on a poster that is supposed to make me want to see this movie. Not on a poster that is supposed to represent the next installment of a series that made Manolo Blahnik a household name.

And what the hell is she carrying on? Life? Marriage? Babies? Snarky columns about about being single in the city? Oh, wait, NONE OF THEM ARE ACTUALLY STILL SINGLE!

So, what then? Do you have any idea? Cause I sure don't...

No? I didn't think so.

I KNEW that was a forever 21 dress - then thought - no way they would put Carrie Bradshaw "fashion guru" in Forever 21.... Seems strange.

YES! Very strange! I couldn't understand it... I know we're in a recession and all, but come on! This is supposed to be an escape. Soooo annoying.
