Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) is still a sexaholic slut.
Sex-loving Samantha may be a painfully simplified character, but I doubt that a life-long bachelor with an active sex life would be treated with the same disrespect. In fact, in his 2004 review of Alfie, Ebert describes the playboy character as a "lover to a parade of women," a "hedonist," and "compulsively promiscuous." If you ask me, none of these characterizations bite as hard as "sexaholic slut."
Does the word slut bother you as much as it bothers me?
