There are some movie goers, I assume mostly women, who are checking off their calendars until the day the film version of the HBO series “Sex and the City” hits the theaters. In anticipation of this event Fancast.com conducted a Facebook poll about the upcoming film and its cast and characters.
Fancast.com offers fans entertainment on demand including clips and full episode of their favorite programs. It appears there are enough fans of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte to answer the big questions:
Question #1: Do you think Sex and the City will be THE chick flick of the summer?
50% said the film will suck. Now, it’s being assumed that those responses came from men who are experiencing a bout of nausea at the prospect of being dragged by their girlfriends to see the big screen adventures of Carrie and Mr. Big. No one asked why Mr. Big is called Mr. Big, though it’s always been assumed it’s related to his BIG job. But could there be some kind of Freudian undercurrent? Honestly, I hope we never know. Okay, I go too far. Here’s more of the poll. 31% said it will be the chick flick of the summer, while 6% said it will be the chick flick of the Century! Wow!
Question #2: Should this movie be the final chapter to the Sex and the City legacy?
Can “Sex and the City” really have a legacy? Isn’t a legacy more in line with the first two Godfather movies that still have people asking “Where’s Luca Brazi?” *
57% said this should be the end for the four gals from the city. They said this should be it, the big wrap up. But we know that if this does big business those four will be back. It should be added that the 57% that said the four should fade into the Manhattan sunset were males. Are we seeing a trend here? 26% said bring on more “Sex and the City” while 8% are hoping for more sequels and 9% want the series back on HBO.
But how long can it really continue? Will it be “Sons and Daughters of Sex and the City”? Will the Fab four be seen instructing their teens on the correct use of a condom? Will it go even further? Is there a role for Daniel Day-Lewis as Carrie’s son? Will there be a touching airport scene where his loving mother dabs a hankie to her tear stained face as he leaves to become a Cobbler? The proud shoe loving Mom weeping with joy at the knowledge she’ll get custom made shoes for the rest of her life.
Question #3: Who is the hottest Sex and the City character?
I guess it had to be asked and therefore had to be answered. 40% picked Samantha the man eating predator. There was no indication if these were male or female respondents. 23% said Mr. Big and the star of the show pulled a paltry 17% and might want to demand a recount.
Question #4: Do you think there’s a little bit of Samantha in everyone?
I know this is a question that’s been on my mind quite a bit lately, keeping me up at night, making me pace in front of the computer and then sit down and write: “Is there any reason anyone would want to be part Samantha?”
69% of females responded and maybe there’s more Samantha in me than I want to admit since the above number struck me as funny, considering it’s a “Sex and the City” poll. 45% said it was possible. 38% hoped that there was a little bit of Samantha in us all. 10% doubted it was a reality which is a good sign since Samantha is a fictional character. And 7% don’t believe Samantha is in anyone. I bet they don’t believe in the tooth fairy either.
Finally, the last, the final, the truly important question is:
Question #5: If you could swap closets with any Sex and the City character, who would it be?
It’s Carrie with 38%! Respondents covet her shoes. Forget the future of bunions, hammertoes, back problems and arthritic knees. They want Carrie’s Manolos with their pointy toes and sky high heels. Miranda came in a respectable 27%. Perhaps the professionals among those polled want her lawyer garb. Charlotte tied with Carrie’s new assistant played by Jennifer Hudson with 15%. This was interesting does anyone know what Carrie’s assistant is wearing? Last was Samantha at 5% which I guess proves someone prefers her out of her clothes rather than in them.
There you have it. You can get a good night’s sleep knowing the answers to these “Sex and the City” questions. You now know what the denizens of Facebook think, feel and what they want to wear on their feet. I just hope it was the women who want to wear the Manolos.
*For anyone who doesn’t know. Luca Brazi is sleeping with the fishes.
