Coming Attraction: Sex and the Silicon Valley


USA/Samantha gives a whole new meaning to the personal computer in one outrageous scene in the movie that opens on Thursday.

The bold PR exec Samantha, portrayed by actress Kim Cattrall, is shown multitasking in ther Times Square office — on the phone with a client and working on her Hewlett-Packard computer with one hand, and applying a hormonal cream to her menopausal self with the other.

Judging from the audience’s laughter at the world premiere in Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall, this will be one of the sequel’s most memorable scenes, especially for “Sex and the City” fans of a certain demographic.

 Another HP product, designer Vivienne Tam’s “Butterfly Lovers” laptop, gets a nanosecond of screen time with Samantha in another scene. Blink — and you might miss it.
Cast members in the Radio City audience on premiere night included Chris Noth (Mr. Big), John Corbett (Aidan) and Liza Minnelli (herself).
