Yesterday I posted a review of the new movie Sex and the City 2 (which is set in Abu Dhabi) that complained that it was “anti-Muslim.” But this new review, “Sucks in the city” by Kyle Smith in the New York Post, May 26, makes the film sound as if it treats Islamic issues with Hollywood’s usual reliable dhimmitude:
[…] She soothes everyone with a free trip to an Abu Dhabi resort where the rooms are worth $22 grand a night. Carrie actually delivers the line, “Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore!” and writer-director Michael Patrick King’s pun dependence becomes as unbearable as the gilt dÃ©cor. “I’m going to turn this inter-friend-tion into an inter-fun-tion!” . . . “Bedouin, bath and beyond” . . . Blah, Blah, Blahnik.
The girls aren’t interested in anything except shopping, drinking and strutting through the desert in slo-mo, but what’s most appalling is that they vamp to “I Am Woman” in this land of sand Nazis. A veil “cuts back on the Botox bill!” chirps Samantha. Har. In Abu Dhabi husbands can legally beat their wives — and Carrie thinks this place is Oz, a cure for her boredom with a zillionaire husband who, she complains, eats too much takeout. (She won’t cook because she’s more “Coco Chanel than Coq au vin.” Waiter: one divorce, please)….
Once again Western feminists throw Muslim women under the bus. It’s their culture, doncha know.
