"I don't see 'Sex and the City 3' happening," Chris Noth recently told Parade magazine when asked about a third installment of the big-screen series based on the TV series based on the book. "I'm not disappointed if they don't. I miss the early days before it became sort of a circus of attention, when it hadn't become this iconic thing." Meanwhile, Miranda herself, Cynthia Nixon, is happy to move on, telling THR, "I think we had a wonderful ride. I think it's fine to let it go."

All with an extra dose of Daddy issues. 

To be fair, it's about as "good" as we figured, but in the era of "Girls," this feels particularly musty and outdated. Watch below. [The Telegraph]
