Will “Sex and the City: The Movie” be as witty, fun, and savvy as the long-running TV series was

They sexy quartet is back, right where they belong, on the big screen. Its time to hit the streets of Manhattan again with Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotteand, of course, their Louis Vuitton handbags and Manolo Blahnik shoes.

For six seasons, HBO brought to life Candace Bushnell's provocative bestselling book, Sex and the City, turning the show into an upscale, trend-setting phenomenon, popular all over the world. It was the cabler's most popular and critically acclaimed prime time show.

For the few out there, who need a reminder: Sarah Jessica Parker stars as Carrie Bradshaw, a “sexual anthropologist,” who writes “Sex and the City,” a newspaper column that chronicles the sexual affairs of fellow New Yorkers. Carries ideas are often inspired by her three best friends, nice girl Charlotte (Kristin Davis), hard-edged Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and party girl Samantha (Kim Cattrall), not to mention Carries own turbulent love life.

This highly anticipated film adaptation opens with the girls entering new stages in their lives. Carrie is with Mr. Big (Chris Noth), living and writing in Manhattan. Miranda is married to Steve (David Eigenberg), still working as a lawyer and raising their five-year-old son in Brooklyn. Charlotte is married to Harry (Evan Handler), raising their newly adopted Chinese baby. Samantha has taken her publicist talents to L.A., where her boyfriend Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis) has become a movie star.

“Sex and the City” follows the fab four as they deal with sex, love and relationships in the city that never sleeps. It also reunites many of the people behind the camera who made the show the How to Guide for urban sophisticates, including series creator and writer Michael Patrick King and fashion designer Patricia Field. Patricia Fields career skyrocketed, when her hip signature creations became as well known as the characters wearing them.

Starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristen Davis, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, and Chris Noth. Written and directed by the series creator, Emmy award winner Michael Patrick King. Costumes by Oscar Award nominee and Emmy Award winning designer Patricia Field, who also did “The Devil Wears Prada.”

Should be a lot of fun!
