New film Sex and the City 2 can hurt Islamic sentiments, according to reviewers.

The Hollywood Reporter reviewer has branded the film, based on hit television drama about four American women, as “anti-Muslim”, after watching the premiere.

"(Carrie) and her friends run up against the puritanical and misogynistic culture of the Middle East," the Herald Sun quoted the reviewer as stating, referring to an episode in the movie.

The critic added: "The rather scathing portrayal of Muslim society no doubt will stir controversy, especially in a frothy summer entertainment, but there's something bracing about the film's saucy political incorrectness.”

The reviewer pointed out a scene in which "a bunch of Muslim women who strip off their black robes to reveal the stylish Western outfits they are concealing beneath their discreet garb.”

The reviewer described it as "tasteless humor”.
