Culture Critics: Some 'Sex and the City' alums are defending the sequel against critics who call it disrespectful of the Islamic culture. I haven't seen the movie yet, so I don't know exactly what happens that critics are so upset about, but it seems like a lot of it centers around Kim Cattrall's character, Samantha. One part of the storyline has her kissing a man in public, which is frowned upon in some parts of the Middle East. Cynthia Nixon, who plays Miranda, admits Samantha behaves badly, but says it keeps with her character's personality. "Samantha is disrespectful, but Samantha is disrespectful in New York and she is disrespectful in the Middle East and she just really doesn't care, " Nixon tells the Hollywood Reporter. The movie's director, Michael Patrick King, adds that Samantha Jones is simply an unapologetic individual.
