Attention Sex and the City fans! Lucky and I have the doggy dish on the long-awaited film that has everyone talking. This week Lucky and I attended a very private screening of the Sex and the City movie at New Line Cinema’s private screening room. After watching the movie I was reminded by a quote about me in The Seattle Times that said, “If Wendy Diamond were a character on Sex and the City, she’d have Carrie’s wit, Samantha’s black book and Charlotte’s affection for a pampered pooch.” It makes me laugh, but I guess it’s true. Although all my Manhattan characteristics didn’t get me a part in the movie, Lucky and I are still out in Hollywood ready for our ten week series to debut on CBS.
A new addition to the SATC cast is Gidget Gormley a “New Yorkie” who plays Samantha Jones’ (aka Kim Cattrell’s) dog, Baby. Gidget’s real-life owner is Mary Gormley one of our Entertainment Editors here at Animal Fair. Gormley has been with us since 1999… before Gidget became an overnight sensation. Gidget told Lucky she loved working with Cattrell and the two got along famously because their relationship is so believable… not to mention they had so much in common. Cattrell was quoted saying “[Gidget] was very sweet and incredibly over-prepared for her role. I particularly loved it when we had matching outfits… She did get her close-up before mine continuously, which really got in my craw but besides that, I loved working with her. It’s tough working with animals because sometimes they’ll do it and sometimes they won’t. But she was very well-trained.” It seems Gidget was so well trained that some early reviewers say Cattrell steals all the laughs with the help of her “humping dog”.
We were glad to see Kristen Davis’s character Charlotte York still has her dogs (and some kids this time around). Both Davis and Cattrell have been on the cover of Animal Fair and it’s good to know the movie is packed with so many animal lovers.
Seeing Sex and the City for the first time in years reminded us of two things: first, we miss New York… Lucky especially misses the sidewalks, she gets so confused around too much green, but she is quickly adapting to the Hollywood lifestyle (if you know what I mean). Secondly, we realized that Sex and the City and Animal Fair have had a long-standing partnership when it comes to the dogs and the new film promises to cater to Sex and the City fans and animal lovers alike! I’ll also say, however, if the women in the movie were dogs there would be a lot of dog fights and even more… humping.
We were surprised the film made a big deal about Samantha Jones turning 50. Lucky told me that that would be like announcing to the world she’s 350 in dog years. No one needs to know that, no dog nor woman! I’m not sure if the movie kept Lucky’s attention though. She did love all the humping and that dog Jason Lewis aka “Smith” Jerrod (Samantha’s boyfriend)! Lucky’s never good at keeping quiet in long movies and after two hours of the two hour, twenty minute film, she started barking and I had to keep her quiet in front of all the execs at the private screening. It’s a good thing the dogs didn’t get as many outfit changes as Sarah Jessica Parker, or the movie would have been a full three hours long!
lol that quote about you seems like it is so true! loved the movie too!
I was wondering who that cute little Yorkie was in the Sex and the City movie! Little Gidget is adorable! She is quite the curious trouble maker with her visit to Samantha’s next door neighbor! I wonder if Gidget and Charlotte’s little King Charles, Elizabeth Taylor, hit it off behind the scenes!
Lucky is so lucky to have gotten to meet all the big stars! My Beagle Lacey and I are so jealous of Lucky’s socialite status in Hollywood!
Hey – It was great to see lucky & you in cali – hope to see more of you, had so much fun. Mellow neds to make a gust apperance on your new show -I cant wait to see you both. I need you to send that bracelet back (unless you want it?) it is going to Theodores and has already been ordered by them. My address : 8921 burton way, la 90048 – thank you
Great to see you & keep in touch – also think about the boyfriend thing – I will keep my eyes wide open for you
At long last, I finally saw Sex and the City! Loved the movie, but I have to disagree with your opinion on Gidget. While she sounds great in real life, she definitely wasn’t a highlight for me in the film. Not a huge fan of really cutesy animals in films, but still, great film.
Ack, Sex in the City? It’s definitely not one of my favorite shows, so I didn’t get into all that hype when the movie came out. I think I’d rather sit through a J. Lo film.
On the other hand, I’m jealous you guys went to a private screening!!
Sex in the City’s def not on the top of my favorites list too, but you would really rather sit through a J.Lo film? You’re far braver than me then. And yea, the hype around that film was freaking ridiculous and like most pre-movie release hype, unwarranted.
First of all, I don’t know how the ladies above could not love Sex and the City. But to each their own, I suppose. Secondly, I am so glad that Samantha got her little dog. I always thought she was a secret little-dog kind of person. I envision Carrie getting a dog in the next movie–a rescue dog perhaps?–that would be a great trend to start!
Hi! Very nice blog, back to reading, bye!
