I Don't Know How She Does It
Available at Video Ezy now!
Sarah Jessica Parker stars in this romantic comedy as Kate, a Boston-based working mum juggling marriage, her kids and a high-stress job as a finance executive. Based on Allison Pearson's best selling 'chick lit' novel of the same name.
The perfect storm hits when Kate gets a big promotion that will require frequent trips to New York and her architect husband (Greg Kinnear) also wins the job he'd been hoping for. Both are spread even thinner and priorities become blurred. Further complications arise when Kate's charming new business associate Jack (Pierce Brosnan) begins to prove an unexpected source of temptation.

Add your two cents...
Not good at all. Does not reflect that a woman can be strong and capable, instead showing that they weakly submit instead.Reviewed by Gavin

The film is embarrassingly unfunny, its social observations coarse and dated.Click to read full review.

The humour has become broader and the central character softer, but, in Parker’s nimbly comic performance, she retains her essence.Click to read full review.
The movie reflects an idealised version of someone failing.Click to read full review.
Though it aims to be a sharply humorous look at the mommy wars, it has nothing remotely new or comical in its arsenal.Click to read full review.
Feels out of step with contemporary reality and humorless in its adaptation of a comic bestseller.Click to read full review.
