Billy Eichner passionately defends “Sex in the City 2″ in new episode of “Billy on the Street” with Sarah Jessica Parker
Okay, Billy Eichner and I are on the same page on this one.
Sex and the City 2 was so unfairly trashed and even though it made close to $100 million at the domestic box office, the drubbing it took but the brakes on my beloved franchise.
I hope not forever.
Anyway, in this week’s episode of Billy on the Street, Billy has as his guest Carrie Bradshaw herself Sarah Jessica Parker.
He asks her what she thought of the second film’s reception.
‘I think what was surprising was the sort of level of vitriol that I understood was leveled at it,’ was all Parker could say before Billy interjected and gave his own take on things.
“Here’s what I think: I think that that show had dealt so well, in such a smart, sharp way in dissecting guys that I think bros, all the bros out there really liked the chance to jump on it finally to a certain degree. And people said, ‘I don’t believe them going to the Middle East,’” Eichner begins. “I have one guy, a friend of mine who’s into sci-fi, he’s like, ‘It’s not believable they go to the Middle East.’ I said, ‘Oh you can’t believe they go to the Middle East, but you believe in f–king Chewbacca, you f–king turd? You’ll believe anything that happens on some planet George Lucas made up, but you can’t believe that Kim Cattrall would film for a few weeks in Morocco?’ I’m serious. I’m so glad to finally be getting this off my chest.”
SJP’s response? “You’re saying things I never would have the courage to say.”
