"Sex" Crazed City: Film Premieres To Chaos In New York City

After years of forced abstinence, Carrie and company returned to Manhattan last night and hit the pink carpet for the star-studded premiere of "Sex and the City: The Movie."

Its stars got a thunderous reception outside Radio City Music Hall from adoring fans - many of whom were dressed to the nines while screaming and jumping at the sight of Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis).

"The best part about making the movie was being back with the women on the set all day every day, and the best part about tonight is being here with you and being with the fans," Parker said.

As she spoke, she lifted her arms toward the crowd on the sidewalk - getting grown women to scream like teenage girls.

The "Sex" quartet outshone other formidable star power at the event, including Jerry Seinfeld, Matthew Broderick (SJP's hubby), Edie Falco and Ashley Olsen, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, designer Donna Karan and singers Lil' Kim, Mary J. Blige and Fergie.
