One of the more, dare I say, uplifting bits from the last season of Sex and the City came when Samantha, giving a speech while under chemo for breast cancer, whipped off her wig in the middle --- revealing her real, nearly-bald head, and prompting other cancer patients in the crowd to do the same. And to stop trying to hide what they are, and take some pride in it.

Not everyone involved with the show has gotten the message. The movie sequel, shot last fall, is going to be the year's least noticed digital special effects extravaganza, because the point of the effects in this case is to keep things off the screen --- most notably, all signs of aging from the faces and bodies of the main characters in closeups.

(Believe it or not, this comes via the movie's own official blog.)
