    Re: Sexism and the City: Newsweek

    Yeah, there have been a lot of sexist comments surrounding this movie all over the place. Lots of morons on the Deadline Hollywood site.

    I'm disappointed but not really shocked. I knew there was plenty of latent & not so latent resentment of women floating around. This SATC situation just exposed a little of the ugly underbelly of our culture.

    Here's an article from Women & Hollywood calling people out on the sexism.

      The only thing I have to add is that SITC made half as much its opening weekend as Iron Man did.

          There was a great Anthony Lane review in the New Yorker. He took the movie and even better the audience to task.

          My favorite critic by far.

            I never thought of it as a strictly chick show. Back when it was on, seems like it was always couples who watched it and they totally inhaled it. I only know a few people (who were single) who'd get together the gals type thing to watch it.
            I think a lot of guys were fascinated to find out all the little tidbits about what we think. Kind of like how guys love reading Glamour or Cosmo when they have a chance. It's like spying.

                She's hot. She's so hot.

                I wanna tell her she's hot, but she'll think I'm sexist.

                She's so hot she's making me sexist.

                    You could be a part-time model, but you'd probably still have to keep your normal job.
