Sex and the City "Chick-Flick"

This week in seminar we will explore any connections between our course themes--including postfeminism--and the film release of the television series entitled "Sex and the City": concentrating on aspects which are vulnerable to the vector of satiric attack that author Helen Fielding takes in Bridget Jones's Diary.
With Friday's opening of "Sex and the City" shaping up as a big girls-night-out event at U.S. movie theaters, industry analysts say the film seems poised to set a new box office standard for "chick flicks"....An online survey of more than 10,000 moviegoers buying tickets from Fandango found that 94 percent were women, and that 67 percent planned to attend the movie this weekend with a group of female friends.
