Star Sarah Jessica Parker says she feels indebted to all the women -- and some men-- who've been so supportive of this endeavor.
"I don't know of any job in the world that is dictated by an audience and that is dictated by people I will never meet," said Parker. "It just doesn't happen much in a person's life. I feel really lucky."
Writer-director Michael Patrick King shares Parker's enthusiasm and gratitude. King says he looked to Hollywood's past in creating this latest adventure in the desert.
"The whole first part of the movie is basically Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, old New York, MGM musical and Liza Minnelli," said King. "The second part is, you know, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, David Lean in a big blender."
"It's a great fun movie, but it's not a Bible for, you know, table manners for men or women, I don't think," said actor Chris Noth.
"What is so terrific is that the women have left the men and the children behind and have gone to this foreign land," said actress Kim Cattrall. "It's the best I think of what the series was of spending time with the girls."
"Sex and the City 2" is rated-R. Pre-sales have been strong on this one so it should do very well this holiday weekend.
