Lots of talk this weekend about how guys don't like Sex and the City (see, e.g., link) Actually, I kinda liked Sex and the City (the TV show; I haven't seen the movie). It's not that my wife pushed me into it; I'm not sure she has ever seen it. And it is not just about all those hot babes making the boinky boinky. Well, okay it is about that, but there is more. The thing is that for all their dazzle and glamor, the girls were winningly human—vulnerable and bewildered, and unable to avoid making small or big mistakes. That opened up lots of opportunities for interesting, surprising, funny plots.
But I have to admit one thing: until the current hype over the movie, I never realized that it was all about the clothes.
