The Sex And The City Plot Hole No One Mentions

I'm glad Carrie & Big ended up back together, but there's one major detail that should have kept them apart.

Posted on

Sex & The City The Movie is about the most idolized woman ever, Carrie Bradshaw.

She lives in NYC, has a closet full of designer clothes and never has to go to a job. Her life is perfect.

She meets Mr. Big & they have the cutest relationship (minus all the breakups and the whole affair thing)

He's also practically a millionaire....did I mention her life is perfect?

Carrie & Big decide it's time for a new apartment (but like what was wrong with the old one anyway?)

Big casually buys every girls' fantasy apartment because he's a millionaire (did I mention that?)

Cue Miranda - everyone's least favorite character who reminds Carrie that Big can kick her out onto the streets since they aren't married.

Go back to Brooklyn Miranda.

So after 10 years Carrie's like "Let's get married, I'm not being forced out of Heaven on 5th NO WAY."

She was also asked to do an entire wedding spread in Vogue despite having no actual celebrity credit.

PLOT TWIST: they don't get married (remember this, this is where the whole plot hole starts)

Honestly would you marry a woman who had a bird on her head?

Everyone's lives go on UNTIL Charlotte sees Big and goes into labor.

GET EM CHARLOTTE!

Cue Harry (Charlotte's Hubby) who tells Carrie that Big couldn't get in touch with her because he didn't have her phone number.

And didn't know her address even though she's lived the same place for 10 years....

Carrie's all like UH WHAT? okay maybe I do love him...

Jennifer Hudson's all like BTW you left Manolo Blahniks in that dream apartment and you have till 5 PM before the new owners change the locks

Must be nice surviving on a writer's salary and being able to carelessly leave your $600 shoes somewhere for months.

Carrie hurries over to the apartment, where Big happened to be and he proposes with a shoe.

It's all every romantic

They get married (for real this time) in her no name vintage dress.

So what's the plot hole you ask?

THEY WERE NEVER MARRIED, SHE WOULDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE APARTMENT SELLING!

Carrie blatantly tells Big in the beginning of the movie that she wants to sell her apartment because she has to be smart, they aren't married, she'd have no legal rights to their home if something were to happen. HELLO FORESHADOWING Well, they didn't get married so it's still technically Big's apartment, so since she's not an owner she wouldn't know it sold or when the new owners were changing the locks.

Which means she wouldn't have known to hurry over there for her shoes.

IF she didn't know she HAD to get her shoes asap she wouldn't have hurried over there, would never have seen Big, they STILL wouldn't be speaking because apparently he didn't have her number or the address of his girlfriend for the past 10 years and Carrie would be single and alone.

And we wouldn't have had Sex And The City 2. I know, mind blown.
