Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha. Those four girls. Their individual style. Yes, the second Sex and the City film is here!
The movie, which premiered in Adelaide last Friday, will see women of all ages unite for a feast of fun, fashion and friendship. It doesn’t matter about the story line, gee, all most women care about is the outfits the girls wear. It’s really just about escapism, and two hours worth of it.
But as for the storyline? Well, it’s nothing groundbreaking. In fact, you could take a snooze and upon waking still get the gist of what’s going on. The film picks up two years on from the first Sex and the City film. Carrie and Big are falling into a rut, Charlotte’s daughter is experiencing the ‘terrible twos’, Miranda is struggling with her job and Samantha is beginning to experience the effects of menopause. The four girls need to get away and, by way of coincidence, Samantha snares the girls an all expenses trip to Abu Dhabi. It is in Abu Dhabi that the majority of the film is based.
Of course costume designer and stylist Patricia Field brings the goods with the fashion. Outfits are changed in seemingly every scene reminding us just how fun fashion should be. And truthfully, it really is the fashion that is the highlight of the film.
Let’s be honest, most girls are going to see the film regardless of the reviews. I just hope they don’t make a Sex and the City 3.
So the lead singer of Axis of Awesome looks like Jack Black. You know it and he knows it. Yeah, it’s funny but it’s not the only funny thing the band has to offer. These guys are witty and talented to boot! The keyboard player, who looks like Chicken Little, has a music degree under his belt.
Covering the Kings of Leon’s Sex on Fire but changing the lyrics to form a ‘surprise’ song was a highlight as was a song about a superhero titled ‘Skeleton Man’. Not ones to shy away from a shameless plug, the guys promoted and preformed songs from their fictional CDs.
Upon entry to the venue you will be given 3D glasses. To ensure you don’t look like a dork, hold off on wearing the glasses until you are prompted and you will see an exclusive song in 3D. It’s just like Avatar! However, the real climax of the show came towards the end when the band performed their wonderful ‘Four Chords’ song. These guys are very funny. Jack Black, eat your heart out.

The Servant of Two Masters presented by the Adelaide University Fringe Club is a slightly confusing but nevertheless entertaining story. Showing at the Armoury Lawns behind the Adelaide Museum, the talented cast rely on voice projection to enable the audience to hear. It was at times difficult to hear what each character was saying, therefore, making it a little hard to follow what was happening in the plot. With entertaining pauses, audience acknowledgments and a great enthusiastic cast, the play had the audience laughing the majority of the way through. Shown in a beautiful location, the cast made use of the Museum’s stairs and balcony to add an element of surprise. Although a little long, the soap opera come comedy had me laughing and smiling.

Sam Simmons is an oddball.
Original, nostalgic and random are words that describe his fringe show Fail. The show jumps around with Sam dancing one minute and reading a story from a Heinmann Atlas the next.
The show is slightly autobiographical and fans of Simmons will be able to recognise his ‘where did that come from?!’ humour. However, those not familiar with Sam’s work on Triple J and ABC may become a little confused.
The show features one very attractive cabbage, vintage slides and lists of things Sam has failed at. Audiences are even able to leave the show with ideas on how to cure boredom, such as inner mind quiz shows and one very special game titled ‘carpet or floor.’ If you find Sam Simmons’ other work hilarious, then you’ll love this hour long show.
