‘Sex and the City’ movie may lack wide appeal


Hollywood worships so-called four-quadrant films: movies that draw males and females both young and old. "Sex and the City" might appeal to only a single audience slice, but its following among older women already is so robust that the film could soon prove its doubters wrong.

Few films have polarized audiences more than May 30's long-awaited cinematic adaptation of the influential HBO show. It's easier to find $2-a-gallon gas than a straight man eager to see the movie. Older women (in Hollywood's youth-obsessed view of the world, this means older than 30) hold a dramatically different view: When they are not posting online about their love of the series -- "addicted" pops up with frightening frequency -- they are organizing ladies' night viewing parties around the film's opening.
