Since it clocks in at almost 2 1/2 hours, you may think, sight unseen, that the movie version of the HBO smash Sex and the City is guilty of wretched excess. Pathetic excess is more like it. This time out, we get a lot of moping, whining and weeping - despondency in the city and inertia everywhere else. Even when the heroines log major screen time at a five-star Mexican resort, it's so Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) can lick her psychic wounds. Fans who came on board for the series' frisky take on sorority, female eroticism and the adventures of singlehood - be forewarned.

''Fresh and clean" hardly seems a likely description for a room full of sweaty dancers, but that's exactly how Allen Mrachek of Havre de Grace describes his DJ Cologne, which he says is inspired by the DJ / dance-club vibe. We expected something more funky and foul, but as it turns out, it actually smells pretty good -- fresh and clean, even. Passing it around the office added these descriptors: spring-breeze-like, refreshing and ocean-inspired. The cologne came into being after Mrachek's Elkton-based nightclub, the Underground Pub, was closed in 1998 because of noise complaints.

WHEN MICHELLE RISDON SLID INTO THE FLOWERY, FLOUNCY skirt she purchased last spring, she experienced a surge of fashion moxie. "I looked at myself in the mirror and thought -- 'I look like Carrie,' " said the 26-year-old teacher, referring to Carrie Bradshaw, the character played by Sarah Jessica Parker on the hit HBO series Sex and the City. "Carrie made getting dressed look like fun," Risdon added. "She made me look in my closet and instead of saying 'Ugh, what am I going to wear today?

New babies can generate weeping and wailing at decibel levels you thought were only possible at airport runways and Aerosmith concerts. And your child might do some crying, too. You say this isn't what you expected when you were expecting? Welcome to the sisterhood. It seems even the stylish women of HBO's Sex and the City aren't exempt from the sticker shock new moms often experience. On an episode, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) lamented about her constantly crying newborn: "He's not sick, he's not hungry, he's not teething; he just wants to scream.

It's Fleet Week in New York, and Carrie Bradshaw and her girlfriends are trolling a Navy party for studly morsels in tight, white packages. Predictably, it isn't long before Carrie gets her first nibble. She looks out onto the sea of starched white and quips, "This is like the Bermuda triangle for women." "You're funny," a young, handsome sailor says. "You remind me of my mom." The scene is a painful but telling moment that crystallizes the feel of the start of Sex and the City's fifth season.

Fans of HBO's "Sex and the City" may find that starting the new season with back-to-back episodes after months of watching reruns might inspire something akin to an unfortunate reaction one character has in a scene tomorrow night. Here's a clue: The scene involves a man who hasn't seen his wife for some time. And it offers an important reminder to pace yourself. So take a deep breath, grab a Cosmopolitan before the show starts and slowly savor the enjoyment. For the two episodes of "Sex and the City" tomorrow night provide a tantalizing hour of Carrie dithering, Charlotte soul-searching, Miranda whining and oodles of vintage Samantha wit. Sarah Jessica Parker returns for the fourth season as Carrie Bradshaw, one of America's highest-paid newspaper writers - as evidenced by her ability to splurge on Manolo Blahnik shoes whenever she feels vaguely depressed (or about once per episode)

HOLLYWOOD-- --Michael Angarano falls into the "he looks familiar" category of actor. The 18-year-old may not be a household name, but his face is recognizable and his performances are often memorable. He was the young Red Pollard in Seabiscuit, the young William in Almost Famous, Meryl Streep's son in Music of the Heart, the teenage son of superheroes in Sky High, Jack's son Elliot on Will & Grace and a champion skateboarder dying of a brain tumor in Lords of Dogtown. It was Angarano's eclectic resume that impressed Alex Steyermark, the director of his newest film, One Last Thing ..., which opened theatrically last week in select cities and debuts on DVD on May 23. "One of the things that impressed me the most were his choices in terms of his films," Steyermark said.

You know what you want. So stop shortchanging yourself with TV shows that can't give it to you, that don't know how to give it to you. You deserve to spend your time with a show that can hit your intellectual, emotional and other assorted buttons -- and all in 22 commercial-free minutes. So dump that "Jesse" chick already and tune in and turn on to HBO's eroti-comedy "Sex and the City." The third season premieres tonight at 9. Look for your shallow, sleazy one-night television stands elsewhere.
