Sarah Jessica Parker and her thirty-something Sex and the City pals may have made it cool to be a Cougar, but they weren't the first to challenge society's unwritten rules regarding dating and sexuality. Check out our new feature, Big Screen Cougars: A Tribute, in which we salute those bold actresses -- from Anne Bancroft (the original Mrs. Robinson) to Demi Moore -- who've redefined the meaning of "aging gracefully."

It's just 3 days until Sex and the City hits movie theaters and my ovaries have me in full-blown estrogen overdrive.
In celebration of the girls' too long-awaited trip to the silver screen, and in recognition of what really makes them tick (of course), may I invite you to check out our little tour of some of our favorite Men of Sex and the City? It's one hot trip down memory lane indeed. Posted 05.27.08 by reelz
Next weekend millions of men across America will be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice when their wives and girlfriends drag them to the Cineplex to see Sex and the City: The Movie. And news from early screenings is that the big screen estrogen-fest clocks in at a mammoth 148 minutes. Add commercials and previews to the running time and you're looking at a total commitment of almost three hours -- a length unheard of for a romantic comedy, even one featuring the beloved cougar quartet of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.
But don't abandon all hope yet, fellas. Stop by Reelz.com next week for our Sex and the City: The Movie Survival Guide for Guys. It'll be chock full of tips to help make the experience as painless as possible for the more testosterone-oriented viewer. With a little preparation and a lot of luck, we can avoid a repeat of 1999's horrific Lilith Fair Massacre. Stay tuned. Posted 05.22.08 by reelz
Guys, you might want to consider moving to Israel. The Associated Press is reporting that two Israeli cities have banned posters and billboards for the upcoming Sex and the City movie. A spokesman for the film's Israeli distributor stated that officials in Jerusalem and Petah Tikva blocked the ads based on their usage of the word "sex" in the title, fearing that it might offend the cities' largely religious populations.
There has also been some speculation that cities' residents, many of whom lack access to cable television and have never heard of the HBO series, might be frightened at the sight of four giant cougars staring down at them. I know I am.

When Sex & the City was on TV -- back in those heady days before Tivo -- my friends and I used to get together in groups to watch it. I even made my husband watch it with me on one of our first dates.
So it should come as no surprise that now as the movie is coming out, ladies everywhere are planning on recapturing that old magic. According to an article in The New York Times, women nationwide are making plans to see Sex and The City in groups when it comes out next week. From Vail to Manhattan, ladies are scheduling cosmo dinner parties and then an outing to the nearest theater to catch the next installment of Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha in all their glory.
In fact, as of last Friday there were more online ticket sales for S&TC, which opens in two weeks, than there were for Indy 4, which opens this weekend.
Sounds perfectly rational to us. We wouldn't dream of seeing S&TC with anything but our best girlfriends. But if the Times is to be heeded, perhaps you want to buy your tickets now lest you and the girls wind up drinking away your sorrows at a nearby Outback Steakhouse while other savvy pre-planners get to revel in all the shoe-tastic, sexified glory.

If you're anything like me, driving around town past those looming Sex and the City billboards proclaiming May 30th as the official doomsday for testosterone, believe me, I feel your pain. Guys have been getting away with nodding off on the couch while watching the hapless adventures of Sarah Jessica and co. on HBO for years, we simply won't get out of this one that easily.
You've got 11 days.
Have you made her take you to Iron Man yet? How about a second viewing? Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull starts Thursday. Heck, maybe you're a nerd who'd like to let your freak flag fly at The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. She owes you that much, right?
It's best to accept that there's simply no getting out of this one. It's going to be awful but at least it's rated-R so, unlike the TBS reruns, there is at least a strong chance of topless action. And let's hope someone besides Kim Cattrall, right? Been there, done that.
Just remember, the time is now. 11 days to force your significant other to sit through every piece of machismo mindless testosterone-flaring, explosion-laden, muscle-flexing, tire-screeching, stuff-blowing-up piece of cinematic fare you can cram in. Just remember I warned you. Posted 05.19.08 by reelz
Getting tired of the choices lately at the movie theater? We are too. This period between the end of the year Oscar fare and the start of summer is always a bit slow, but early 2008 has felt particularly lacking. Last weekend offered a bit of fresh air, but this weekend's offerings are looking pretty stale once again.
But never fear... Next weekend the onslaught begins and our Fan*Tastic Summer Movie Guide takes you through all the biggest releases of summer 2008. If you've been living in a cave, you might not have heard about a little superhero movie called Iron Man. It's out next week and we will have a review to let you know the scoop early next week. For the ladies, hearthrob Patrick Dempsey stars in Made of Honor, which also releases alongside Iron Man on May 2.
And after that? Well, May alone should offer at least a few intriguing titles for just about any movie fan. There's the wild action of the Wachowski's Speed Racer, the battle of the sexes What Happens in Vegas, Prince Caspian, Sex and the City and, of course, we can't forget the return of Indiana Jones!
We'll have tons of great coverage to lead you through the summer movie season including our Fan*Tastic Summer Movie Guide, exclusive material, early reviews and clips from the movies. But trust us, don't distress, because moviegoing is about to get fun again! Posted 04.24.08 by reelz
