Let there be no mistake. A gay man alone could never begin to replicate the inner workings of the female mind.
'Sex and The City' was made to correct the myth that if you were single at a certain age, you were a leper. Its four characters are heroes to a lot of women; they run around New York, or Gotham - but they have fancy shoes instead of capes.
The jokes I used to do on 'Sex and the City' were always comic character things, and they were rarely hard jokes. As soon as you go up in front of people, it demands laughter.
It seems a lot of straight men need a word coach or a lawyer when it comes to discussing 'Sex and the City.'
'Sex and the City' is about outsiders. Single girls as lepers, should have been married by now. It's the reason the whole thing took off.
There's no reason to do 'ex and the City' if it's not going to be everything 'Sex and the City' is, which is vibrant emotions, comedy, drama... and also, style.
People wince when something is in bad taste. They laugh when it's funny. If it's too dirty or wrong, they won't laugh. But if it's a big, dirty, smart, funny laugh, they love it.
