Gray told The Washington Post that he's a big "Sex and the City" fan:

"I like the relationships between the ladies," Gray said. "I really enjoy the friendships that they enjoy between each other. . . . The symbolism for me is their ability to support one another."

But Friday, former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry (D), who represents Ward 8 on the D.C. Council, let his Twitter followers know about the movie he took in.

Barry, by the way, is a big fan of "The Wire" ...
