This film runs kinda long at about 145 minutes, almost like they crammed half a season's worth of episodes into a film. Charlotte's bits cracked me up. Carrie's issues almost sank some of the film, but thankfully a minor role by Jennifer Hudson brought in some energy and levity to her funk at the mid-way point of the film. Miranda's subplot felt a little forced, while Sam's arc ended up just right, given her character traits and inner persona. Fans of the show will probably eat it up, but it does have some pacing issues, and the way the film was directed and shot wasn't all that removed from its television roots, which made for a not-so-cinematic viewing, but I guess it stays true to its TV roots and didn't stray too far to bring something new to the table, i.e., they played it safe in terms of cinematic stylings. I give it 2.75 stars, or a grade of B-.
