Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
Ooo, sparkly! Is this gonna the Summer of Sparkle, what with Edward the Sparkly Vampire and the Sex and the City gals with their bedazzled lifestyles?
Wait, what? Dubai? They’re going to Dubai?! The country with “decency” laws so strict that having sex with your spouse can get you into trouble, where kissing in public and drinking alcohol will get you arrested, where extramarital sex is illegal and they’re so not kidding about that?
Oops, my bad: It’s Abu Dhabi they’re going to. Which is exactly as bad:
Women should dress modestly when in public areas, such as shopping malls. Clothes should cover the tops of the arms and legs, and underwear should not be visible.
Public displays of affection are frowned upon, and there have been several arrests for kissing in public. Sex outside of marriage is illegal and if any unmarried couples are brought to the attention of the UAE authorities they run the risk of prosecution, imprisonment and/or a fine and deportation. … Cohabitation, including in hotels, adultery, cross-dressing and homosexual behaviour are also illegal.
So that rules out most of what Sex and the City 2 could possibly want to work with.
Sex and the City 2 opens in the U.S. and Canada on May 27, and in the U.K. on May 28.
