I laughed, I cried, I ate half a family sized bag of M&Ms. It was great.
I do have one small criticism. Some of Carrie's clothes made me cringe. Mainly these four:
- The cream coloured dress in the first scene. There is a flower on her shoulder so large it looks as though it will jump out and eat the first tasty person it sees.
- Her wedding outfit. The dress was gorgeous. It was the poor bird that flew into the side of her head on her way out the door I found distracting.
- One jacket she is wearing that looks as though she pulled a "Von Trap" and made it out of some old lady's curtains. Rod and hooks in all.
- The ensemble she wore running from her apartment to Miranda's on New Years Eve. Pajama pants and long shirt. Ballerina slip chemise with spaghetti straps over the long sleeved shirt. A full length fur jacket. Dinner gloves. 80's style ankle boots. And... a metallic silver toque. All in all, she looked like a homeless woman with mental health issues who was wearing a tinfoil hat to keep the aliens from reading her mind.
Even with that, I am buying the movie the second it hits the shelves. And I will be going to see it again. Probably alone in the afternoon so I can cry with abandon.
