Why is the Sex & the City Movie a Mega-Blockbuster?
Date:6/5/2008

Dr. Diana Kirschner Explains the Psychology Behind It

NEW YORK, June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- "Sex and the City grossed an estimated $55.7 million for its opening weekend, beating out the new Indiana Jones movie, much to Hollywood's surprise. No other romantic comedy has ever opened with such a lucrative box office. There are clear reasons why this phenomenon is occurring," says Dr. Diana Kirschner, psychologist and recurring relationship expert on the Today show. Each of the Sex & the City characters, Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, struggles with a specific dating pattern that many women face or have overcome. "Because so many women identify with these four dating patterns," adds Dr. Diana, "They have made the TV series and now the movie, an institution." The Four Sex & the City patterns are:

The Crumbs Dating Pattern (like Carrie)

1. Accepting seductive & wonderful treatment from a guy who is ultimately

out of reach & afraid of commitment (Mr. Big)

2. Fantasizing about & falling for men who put her second, behind work or

other women (the Russian)

3. Cheating on a man who really loved her (Aidan) and pushing him away

The Chase Me Dating Pattern (like Samantha)

1. Endlessly claiming she did not really want to have a relationship

2. Leaving lovers & moving on for no apparent reason

3. Fearing intimacy (Smith holding her hand in public!) and commitment

The Not Perfect -- I'll Pass Dating Pattern (like Charlotte)

1. Fussy and a perfectionist

2. Almost passed on Harry Goldenblatt, a man who was good husband material

but balding & unpolished. (refused to go to beach party with him unless

he had his back waxed)

3. Judgmental and constricted about sexuality

The Safety Net Dating Pattern (like Miranda)

1. Afraid of being alone & pessimistic about her odds of meeting a great

guy

2. Dating guys she feels
