Twelve years, one beloved HBO series, and two characteristic movies on, the “Sex and the City’’ gals have been diminished to Bratz dolls for grown girls. Even the sneakers appear snap-on, and don’t ask in regards to the feelings. What was as soon as a playful, pretend-shallow cleaning soap opera with pockets of feeling is now shallow for retains — a dunderheaded comedian melodrama with garments to die for and dialogue to shrink from. It’s downright miserable.

Dolls belong within the playroom, and Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Charlotte (Kristin Davis), and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) belong in New York City, or, fairly, that fairy-tale Manhattan envisioned by author Candace Bushnell and sequence producer Darren Star. It’s a spot the place couture clothes are all the time one paycheck inside attain, the place lengthy city automobiles with eligible businessmen purr exterior, the place the intercourse is nice, and the lunches by no means finish. As fantasies go, it was irresistible; perhaps it’s much more so in a recession.

The good mistake of “Sex and the City 2,’’ then, is to ship its characters out of New York and into the United Arab Emirates for a weeklong, all-expenses-paid trip at a swank Abu Dhabi lodge. Simply so we’re clear on this: 4 fun-loving American fashionistas descend upon a rustic the place their life-style and clothes decisions would get them whipped in the event that they had been residents, the place earlier this month a lady who reported being raped by six males was charged with unlawful intercourse and faces life in jail. However what does that matter when you may experience a camel throughout the desert in your Christian Louboutins?

For the primary 60 minutes of its punishing 2 1\/2-hour operating time, whereas the charac ters are nonetheless in New York, “SATC2’’ is appropriate and even entertaining. The film opens with the marriage of the group’s pet homosexuals (actually, each woman ought to have one), Anthony (Mario Santone) and Stanford (Willie Garson), and the ceremony is so enthusiastically excessive that you just gladly give in. To see Liza Minnelli — what’s left of her — jazzhand her manner by a rendition of Beyoncé’s “Single Women’’ is to entry a aircraft of excessive camp recognized solely to the finer feminine impersonators.

Quickly, although, we’re slowed down within the issues of actual life as skilled by pampered city girls. Really, the stresses confronted by Charlotte and Miranda as they take care of colicky toddlers, chauvinistic bosses, braless nannies, and weary spouses are lifelike and amusing sufficient to attain a couple of factors, and Samantha’s battles with menopause — she packs sufficient hormones in her purse to begin a bio-engineering lab — are broadly humorous.

However what are we to do with Carrie, the once-smart creator who the characteristic movies have changed into a ninny? Now married to Mr. Huge (Chris Noth, affected person because the tides), Carrie can’t abdomen staying in two nights operating, and her refusal to permit her husband even to look at TV in mattress is annoying fairly than cute. Her doubts are mirrored within the title of her newest e-book, “I Do, Do I?’’ however what may make for an insightful look into marital ambivalence in one other movie (or on the TV present) sounds solely like whining right here. When Huge suggests two nights off per week, you hardly blame him.

And when our heroine will get to Abu Dhabi and encounters previous flame Aidan (John Corbett, the tasteless go-to stud of chick flicks), the stage is about for extra of the compelled emotional dilemmas that made the primary movie appear so strained. (Bear in mind when Carrie’s marriage ceremony to Huge was canceled as a result of they couldn’t attain one another on the telephone?)

That’s the least of the film’s issues. Stomach-dancers and all, “SATC2’’ parlays a gaga tourista imaginative and prescient of the Center East that hasn’t modified because the days of Rudolph Valentino, and the insertion of 4 Ugly Individuals right into a Muslim capital makes for bizarre dissonances fairly than gentle comedy. How are we imagined to learn the scene during which Samantha incurs the wrath of a crowd of Arab males by disrobing in a market after a sizzling flash?

Or how in regards to the nightclub sequence the place the characters carry out a karaoke rendition of Helen Reddy’s “I Am Girl’’? There are such a lot of ranges of unintended irony there — glitzy Western narcissists singing a feminist anthem in a rustic with a notably awful report on girls’s rights — that the thoughts boggles. That scene was shot on a Brooklyn set, by the way in which, and the remainder of the Center East scenes in Morocco. It appears Abu Dhabi couldn’t deal with even the script for this film.

Oh, proper, it’s all meant to be in enjoyable. Effectively, good luck with that. The primary “Sex and the City’’ movie was such a girls-night-out pop occasion that it was straightforward for followers to miss the truth that the film itself was terrible. They’ll should work lots tougher this time. All motion pictures require suspension of disbelief, however “Sex and the City 2’’ drives a crueler cut price. It asks that we be as brainless as everybody onscreen.
