Sex and the City 2 which is partly based in Abu Dhabi will be banned in the Emirate’s leading city. Abu Dhabi has long been the more conservative city when compared to Dubai and just can’t bring itself to allow a film with the word “sex” in the title to be shown in cinemas.

Clearly, were it to be shown riots of women running around stripping off their clothes and having rampant, frequent causal sex would break out. But, by banning the film authorities have cleverly avoided such an eventuality.

The film has also been banned as in parts of the film the local dress code is mocked – the horror! – as well as for references to – deep breaths – homosexuality.

“The film has also been banned as in parts of the film the local dress code is mocked – the horror! – as well as for references to – deep breaths – homosexuality.”

So what you’re saying is the movie runs all of 30 minutes? 🙂 Thank Bob!!

Find it kinda weird that they set the movie in Abu Dhabi anyway. Surely Dubai would have been “better” (quotation marks used deliberately)? I mean, the move wasn’t even shot in Abu Dhabi.

I think it showed the true self centered Abu Dhabi male… That in itself would definatly be means for banning the film.. Personally I thought the movie was far better than the first. The woman in the film with the birkas (don’t get it)
