Story


Sarah Jessica Parker, Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Munn and Christina Hendricks star in "I Don't Know How She Does It", a comedy from director Douglas McGrath ("Emma", "Infamous") and producer Donna Gigliotti ("The Reader", "Let Me In"). Based on the critically acclaimed bestseller by Allison Pearson, "I Don't Know How She Does It" follows a Boston-based working mother trying desperately to juggle marriage, children, and a high-stress job.

Kate Reddy (Parker) devotes her days to her job with a Boston-based financial management firm. At night she goes home to her adoring, recently-downsized architect husband Richard (Kinnear) and their two young children. It's a non-stop balancing act, the same one that Kate's acerbic best friend and fellow working mother Allison (Christina Hendricks) performs on a daily basis, and that Kate's super-brainy, child-phobic young junior associate Momo (Olivia Munn) fully intends to avoid. When Kate gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, Richard also wins the new job he's been hoping for-and both will be spreading themselves even thinner. Complicating matters is Kate's charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer (Brosnan), who begins to prove an unexpected source of temptation.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it doesn't help that the characters announce their platitudes directly to the camera in faux interview segments, as if they were fresh revelations rather than overly familiar statements..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
“..there is none. I don't know why she does it...”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..it looks like a really cheesy horror movie, fueled by manufactured hysteria and terror, featuring a horse-faced, psychotic Mother hiding behind long stringy hair..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
