The world premiere took place at Leicester Square in London on May 15, 2008, and premiered on May 28, 2008, in the United Kingdom and on May 30, 2008, in the United States. Despite mixed reviews from critics, calling the film an extended episode of the series, it was a commercial success, grossing over $415 million worldwide from a $65 million budget.
A sequel to the film, titled Sex and the City 2, was released in 2010 to similar commercial success but even larger critical failure. A third film was announced in December 2016, but in September 2017, Parker confirmed that it was not going to happen.
Carrie walks through the streets of New York City thinking about events that have happened to her and her friends during Sex and the City. Charlotte is now happily married to Harry Goldenblatt, but since she had a hard time getting pregnant, they adopted a Chinese girl named Lily; Miranda has settled down in Brooklyn with Steve to raise their son Brady together; and Samantha has relocated her business to Los Angeles to be close to Smith, who is now a superstar, although she misses her old life and takes every opportunity to fly East to be with Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte.
Carrie herself is now in a relationship with Big, and they are viewing apartments with plans to move in together. Carrie falls in love with a penthouse far from their price range. Big immediately agrees to pay for it. The girls (including Samantha who has flown in from Los Angeles) attend an auction of jewelry belonging to a woman who had been dumped by her longtime boyfriend, prompting Carrie to worry about her situation with Big. Samantha bids on a flowered ring as a reward for herself, but is outbid by a buyer on the phone.
In talking with Big about the impending move, Carrie offers to sell her own apartment to pay for the penthouse. She also voices her fear that if they were to separate, she would have no legal rights to their home, as they are not married. To quell her fears, Big suggests that they marry. Carrie announces the news to her friends. Charlotte and Miranda are happy at the news, but Samantha sounded more excited at the thought of Carrie "finally getting Botox." Charlotte hires her longtime gay friend, Anthony Marantino, as the pushy wedding planner. Carrie shows Anthony and Charlotte the vintage suit she plans to marry Big in, no one except Carrie loves it.
Carrie is asked by her Vogue editor Enid to do a spread for Vogue called "The Last Single Girl." She gets to dress up in fancy couture gowns and is gifted a gown from Vivienne Westwood, which she decides to wear instead of her suit. The ensuing publicity of her engagement blows up her small wedding to a big affair, which makes Big uncomfortable.
Miranda, clearly stressed from work, confesses to her friends that she has been so busy she has not had sex with Steve in six months. When Steve confesses he has cheated on her, Miranda is devastated and immediately separates from him and gets her own place. At Carrie and Big's rehearsal dinner, Steve tries to reconcile with Miranda, but she rejects him. Still upset with Steve, she tells Big bluntly that marriage ruins everything.
Big, under the guise of needing Carrie's help for his marriage vows, calls Carrie for reassurance that night while she's at Charlotte's. Carrie can tell something's wrong, but chalks it up to jitters.
On the wedding day, Big, still wigged out by Miranda's words at the rehearsal dinner, tries to call Carrie again, but Lily answers the phone and then hides it. Big drives to the wedding, but upon seeing Carrie (but not her face), he has the driver take him away. Carrie, realizing no one has heard from Big, finally reaches him on someone else's phone. He tells her he just left. Devastated, Carrie flees the wedding. Samantha stays behind to clear the guests. Big quickly realizes he made a mistake and catches up with Carrie in an attempt to reconcile in the middle of a one-way street. Carrie furiously attacks him with her bouquet while he earns scathing looks from Miranda and Charlotte, as well as from the crowds of New Yorkers watching the scene unfold.
Carrie goes to Charlotte's after the aborted wedding. Miranda tells Charlotte that she may have said something to upset Big, and she wants to tell Carrie. Charlotte tells her not to, that "Big has been weird about marriage for years." To console Carrie, the four women take her on the honeymoon to Mexico that Carrie had booked and paid for as a gift to Big. Samantha and Miranda work to buy Carrie's apartment back. Carrie eventually comes out of her shell and wants to return to New York.
Upon returning to New York, Carrie hires an assistant, Louise, to help her manage her life. She gets all her possessions back, and Louise helps her put up her website. Carrie dyes her hair dark for some reason. Samantha goes back to Los Angeles. Her life with Smith is shown to be all work and no play, with Smith constantly shooting films from morning until night. She watches her sexy neighbor Dante have the kind of free sexual flings she used to have, and is jealous. She stays faithful to Smith, but buys a dog, overeats and shops a lot to distract herself.
Charlotte learns she is pregnant, and for most of her pregnancy is fearful that something might happen to her baby, so she stops her regular running around Central Park. Carrie puts her fear to rest by telling her that, since she already soiled herself in Mexico, her bad luck is finished.
On New Year's eve, Carrie and Miranda have each decided to spend the evening alone. Before Steve leaves with Brady for the night, he and Miranda almost have a moment. It's clear there's still something between them. Miranda calls Carrie, wanting to be connected with someone, but upon realizing she's woken Carrie up, she tells her goodbye. Carrie dresses and rushes on the subway down to Miranda, and tells her, "You're not alone."
Carrie finally reads the Vogue article about her and Big's engagement. On Valentine's Day, Carrie and Miranda have dinner, where she tells Miranda that the article made her realize that she had become so consumed with the wedding that it was not about her and Big anymore, it was all about her. Miranda then confesses to Carrie about what happened at the rehearsal dinner. Carrie is furious that she'd kept a secret from her, and that she ruined her marriage. Out in Los Angeles, Samantha prepares a special naked sushi party for her and Smith, but she gets mad when he doesn't arrive home until very late.
After a few days of badgering, Miranda gets Carrie to talk to her, and begs for her forgiveness. Carrie asks that she doe the same for Steve. After reflecting on the argument she had with Carrie, Miranda agrees to attend couples counseling with Steve. They agree to a scenario where they will meet on the Brooklyn Bridge. If they both show up, it is like the past never existed, and they will move forward. If one or both do not show up, it is the end of the relationship. Steve and Miranda both show up, and they happily reconcile.
Samantha finally admits she misses her old sexual life, even though she loves Smith. She eventually decides to say farewell to Smith and moves back to New York. Around the same time, Louise quits her job as Carrie's assistant to move back to St. Louis and get married.
Later, Charlotte has a surprise encounter with Big that leaves her so outraged that her water breaks. Big takes her to the hospital and waits until baby Rose is born, hoping to see Carrie. Harry passes on the message that Big would like her to call him, and that he has written to her frequently, but never received a reply. Carrie searches her correspondence and finds in Louise's personal assistant file that he has sent her dozens of emails, letters copied from the book she read him before their wedding, culminating with one of his own where he apologizes for screwing up and promises to love her forever.
Carrie goes to the exquisite penthouse Big had bought for them to collect a pair of brand new Manolo Blahnik shoes that she had left there. She finds Big in the walk-in closet he had built for her, and the moment she sees him, she runs to him, and they share a passionate kiss. They admit to each other that they were perfectly happy before all the talk of marriage, and apologize to each other. Big proposes to Carrie properly, using one of her crystal-encrusted shoes in place of a ring.
They later marry alone, in a simple wedding in New York City Hall, with Carrie wearing the simple vintage suit. Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte turn up to surprise Carrie, having been called by Big. The film ends with the four women sipping cosmopolitans, celebrating Samantha's fiftieth birthday, with Carrie making a toast to the next fifty.

At the end of Sex and the City's run in February 2004, there were indications of a film being considered following the series. HBO announced that Michael Patrick King was working on a possible script for the film which he would direct. Later that year, Kim Cattrall declined to work on the project citing reasons that the script and the start date were overly prolonged and she decided to take other offers at hand. As a result, the immediate follow-up ideas for the film were dropped.
It was in mid-2007 that the plans for making the film were announced again. This reportedly resulted after Cattrall's conditions being accepted along with a future HBO series. In May 2007 the project was halted after HBO decided it was no longer in a position to finance the film on its own. The project was pitched within the Time Warner family (owners of HBO) and was picked by sister concern New Line Cinema.
In February 2009 it was officially announced that a sequel would be made including all four actresses and writer-director Michael Patrick King.
The film was prominently shot in New York between September–December 2007. The locations included a number of places around Manhattan and a certain portion was shot in Steiner Studios and Silvercup Studios. The shooting was continually interrupted by paparazzi and onlookers with the security and police authorities employed in order to control the crowd. Efforts were taken to keep the film's plot secret, including the shooting of multiple endings. As a defense strategy, scenes shot in public or in presence of number of extras were termed by Ryan Jonathan Healy and the main cast as "dream sequences".
As in the TV series, fashion played a significant role in plot and production of the film. Over 300 ensembles were used over the course of entire film.Patricia Field, who created costume designs for the series, also undertook the job in the film. Field has stated that she initially was ambivalent to do the film, for monetary and creative reasons. Field rose to fame particularly after designing for the series from 1998 to 2004, wherein she popularized the concept of using designer clothes with day-to-day fashion.
While dressing the characters for the film, Field decided to stay clear from the latest fashion trends defining the characters and instead focused on the evolution of individual character and the actor portraying it, over the last four years. While Samantha's dressing was influenced by American TV soap opera Dynasty (see Nolan Miller), Jackie Kennedy was the inspiration for Charlotte's clothes. Miranda, according to Field, has evolved the most from the series in terms of fashion. This was influenced significantly by development in actress Cynthia Nixon in past years.
- The wedding dress was made by Vivienne Westwood.
- The tutu outfit that Carrie models for the other girls is the same outfit she wears on the show's credits.
- Carrie's assistant, Louise, rents her designer handbags from Bag Borrow or Steal.
- Hats for Vivienne Westwood in the film are made by Prudence Millinery.
- H. Stern lent more than 300 pieces of jewelry to the film.
- Costumes were also selected from collections by haute couture designer Gilles Montezin.
The film's soundtrack debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, the highest debut for a multi-artist theatrical film soundtrack since 2005's Get Rich or Die Tryin', and debuting at number six on the UK Albums Chart, selling to date more than 55,000 copies.
A second soundtrack, Sex and the City: Volume 2, was released on September 23, 2008, coinciding with the film's DVD release, featuring the British singers Estelle, Craig David, Mutya Buena and Amy Winehouse. It also featured Janet Jackson, Ciara, and Elijah Kelley.
In December 2008, the orchestral score for the film was released, Sex And The City - The Score, containing 18 tracks of original score composed, co-orchestrated, and conducted by Aaron Zigman. While the order of the tracks does not correspond directly to the order that the score is heard in the film, the score soundtrack contains almost every single piece of score that is present in the film.
The film's international premiere took place on May 12, 2008, at Odeon West End in London's Leicester Square to an audience of 1700. It was next premiered at Sony Center at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on May 15. The film had its New York City premiere at Radio City Music Hall on May 27, 2008.
The film was a commercial success. Opening in 3,285 theaters, the film made $26.93 million in the US and Canada on its first day. The three-day opening weekend total was $57,038,404, aggregating $17,363 per theater. The film recorded the biggest opening ever for an R-rated comedy and for a romantic comedy, and also for a film starring all women. As of March 2010, the film had grossed $152,647,258 at the US and Canadian box office, and $262,605,528 in other markets, bringing the worldwide total gross revenue to $415,252,786, making it the highest-grossing romantic comedy of 2008.
Sex and the City received mixed reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a rating of 49%, based on 176 reviews, with the site's critical consensus reading, "Sex and the City loses steam in the transition to the big screen, but will still thrill fans of the show." Metacritic gave the film a normalized average score of 53 out of 100, based on 38 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".
Brian Lowry of Variety said the film "...feels a trifle half-hearted", while Carina Chocano of the Los Angeles Times stated "the film tackles weighty issues with grace but is still very funny". She praised Michael Patrick King's work saying very few films "are willing to go to such dark places while remaining a comedy in the Shakespearean sense". Colin Bertram of the New York Daily News dubbed the film a "great reunion", and was happy with the return of "The 'Oh, my God, they did not just do that!' moments, the nudity, the swearing, the unabashed love of human frailty and downright wackiness". The Chicago Tribune's Jessica Reeves described it as "Witty, effervescent and unexpectedly thoughtful." Michael Rechtshaffen at The Hollywood Reporter praised the performances of the four leading ladies and said the film kept the essence of the series, but resembled a super-sized episode.
Manohla Dargis of The New York Times found the film "a vulgar, shrill, deeply shallow — and, at 2 hours and 22 turgid minutes, overlong — addendum to a show", while The Daily Telegraph's Sukhdev Sandhu panned the film saying "the ladies have become frozen, Spice Girls-style types - angsty, neurotic, predatory, princess - rather than individuals who might evolve or surprise us". Rick Groen of The Globe and Mail slammed the film commenting on lack of script and adding that the characters "don't perform so much as parade, fixed in their roles as semi-animated clothes hangers on a cinematic runway". He gave the film zero stars out of four. Anthony Lane, a film critic for The New Yorker, called the film a "superannuated fantasy posing as a slice of modern life"; he noted that "almost sixty years after All About Eve, which also featured four major female roles, there is a deep sadness in the sight of Carrie and friends defining themselves not as Bette Davis, Anne Baxter, Celeste Holm, and Thelma Ritter did—by their talents, their hats, and the swordplay of their wits—but purely by their ability to snare and keep a man....All the film lacks is a subtitle: "The Lying, the Bitch, and the Wardrobe."
Ramin Setoodeh of Newsweek speculated that some of the criticism for the film is derived possibly from sexism: "when you listen to men talk about it (and this is coming from the perspective of a male writer), a strange thing happens. The talk turns hateful. Angry. Vengeful. Annoyed...Is this just poor sportsmanship? I can't help but wonder—cue the Carrie Bradshaw voiceover here—if it's not a case of 'Sexism in the City.' Men hated the movie before it even opened...Movie critics, an overwhelmingly male demographic, gave it such a nasty tongue lashing you would have thought they were talking about an ex-girlfriend...The movie might not be Citizen Kane—which, for the record, is a dude flick—but it's incredibly sweet and touching."
