I’d say the the first one was better, probably because the Abu Dhabi locale didn’t do anything for me (I much prefer the NYC setting), and the Carrie/Big wedding drama was so intense in the original, but the sequel was still enjoyable.

Guess what I did on Victoria Day? Organized closets! Fun, eh? It all started when we realized that we were running out of room in our kitchen.
