Rabid women storm Manhattan movie theaters, Barneys-sample-sale style, as the rough beast that is the Sex and the City movie slouches into town, and an entire generation of New York single gals in tunic dresses and gladiator sandals stare up at the screen and collectively realize, Holy sh*t, I’ve blown it, what was I thinking? Tonight’s Radio City premiere—Will Sarah Jessica Parker wear a dazzling giant dead parrot on her head, as she did at the London premiere?—and the after-party at MoMA offer many opportunities for engrossing conversation about the fact that there’s a scene with a penis—yes, a penis!—in the movie. Unfortunately, it doesn’t belong to Samantha—we were so expecting a deft Crying Game plot twist, weren’t you?

[Sex and the City premiere, Radio City Music Hall, 1260 Avenue of the Americas; after-party at MoMA, 11 West 53rd Street; 13 Vestry Street, 6:30 p.m., invite only]
