Editorial Reviews

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.

I Don't Know How She Does It starring Sarah Jessica Parker is a cute movie but apparently from the other reviews, I'm the only one who thinks that! Yes, there are some stereotypes of mothers and businessman but overall...I thought this movie was funny, sweet, and had a lot of entertainment quality. Parker is such a talented actress, she is so down-to-earth but slightly neurotic as Kate, a mother of two who has a very demanding job. I thought Greg Kinnear was underused but I would definitely see this movie again, it has a lot of funny, real-to-life moments. Enjoy!

I have been such a huge fan of Sarah Jessica Parker since before it was fashionable (yes, I'm old enough to have watched Square Pegs in its original airing), but I wonder why she can't seem to pick a movie script lately that has half of the wit and intelligence of HBO's "Sex and the City." Even the "Sex and the City" movies (especially the second one) lacked the energy and humor of the TV series. "I Don't Know How She Does It" is just the latest unfortunate misfire. The well worn premise is so dated and tired, I don't even know where to begin. If you think that women working in the professional arena is a new or novel phenomenon, this movie might be for you with its antiquated ideas and expected punchlines. It has all the modernity of a Doris Day film with its insulting and old-fashioned notions. From the get-go, the movie lets us know that Parker is both a terrific mother and a fantastic career woman. Problem is--the screenplay really never makes the case that either of these points is true. Oh how can a woman possibly juggle a career and family? Apparently a lot of lying is the key--whether to the bake sale committee or to your boss, it's all the same and absolutely adorable!

Parker has a seemingly idyllic life with her husband (an underutilized Greg Kinnear) and two kids. She manages to be wildly successful at work even though she embodies every negative cliche about working mothers that you can possibly imagine. She shows up late, always has food stains on her clothes, is in perpetual disarray, and generally just bumbles about. That's okay, she's a mother (with a full time child care worker no less) so it's expected that she would be a harried mess.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By A kids review on February 1, 2012
Format: DVD
Writer/director Douglas McGrath has got a couple of good ones on his resume, but his first film in five years was not a welcome return for him. Banking on the star power of Sarah Jessica Parker, coming off the second Sex and the City movie, I Don't Know How She Does It purports itself to be a comedy about a working mother named Kate Reddy who has it all, but must learn how to balance her career, her marriage, and her children. Unfortunately, I didn't really seem to care much about how Kate did it, as the film teetered hesitantly between comedy and drama and relied on hopelessly outdated viewpoints on gender to deliver its message. Despite a supporting cast that included the likes of Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan, and Christina Hendricks, I Don't Know How She Does It is probably best suited as entertainment for those who are looking for just a small taste, just one more fix, of Sarah Jessica Parker in full-on, Sex and the City Carrie mode.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy on January 30, 2012
Format: DVD
The movie irritated me with the over abundance of first person narration and asides. It appears this was written as a play and no knew how to adapt it to the screen. Character is not built for you, but is read to you. It is easy to figure out "how she does it:"

1) Super mom has better organizing skills than most people.
2) SJP has no trouble lying.
3) She takes short cuts.
4) SJP totes half of the world's possessions in her bag.
5) She has both an educated nanny and husband who support her.

That is how she does it.

Everyone in the movie will look into the camera and say "I don't know how she does it." SJP's character's name is "Kate REDDY." Get it? Her arch rival among the other mommies is Wendy BEST. These authors could write porno with imaginative names like that. We could name the husband "Richard Reddy" wink wink nudge nudge. Oh, they did!

Sarah is struggling to keep up with everything when her job requires her to travel from a Hollywood version of Boston (one where no one has an accent) to NYC even though they have wide screen teleconferencing. Her idea is to develop a retirement account for seniors built upon foreign high dividend paying stocks.

I wasn't able to laugh at this comedy. I found out that if a woman signs her e-mail "XO" that means "I want you to enter me" or for a guy, just the reverse. There are also the typical family disappoints due to work.

This is a "chick flick" for a married woman...the one that doesn't cheat on her husband with James Bond when she has the opportunity. Perhaps high octane working moms might enjoy this film as they are shown as incredible super heroes who strive for the heart warming ending.

Format: DVD
This a movie about a woman who overextends herself with her job and family life. She's got two little kids around ages 2 and 6. Her job isn't just any job, but a high powered money making position. I know women like this who somehow manage to balance it all running from place to place. I wonder how they get any sleep at night. They're certainly too busy to see this movie that seems to be about them. I don't have a fault with the plot or the actors. It was a watchable movie. The problem is that it was made as if it were a two hour long draining sitcom. Sarah Jessica Parker holds her own as the lead, but she seems to be playing a very famous character she's played before in the "Sex and the City" franchise. Only difference is, this is Carrie with kids, a high powered job, but the same Carrie voice over that wraps around the scenes through the film. The other issue is that I think this is a topic that's been covered a long time ago and better in films like "Baby Boom". I assumed that this topic has been do dated that you can't really spin the idea of women having a career and children. As far as I'm aware, most women now who are in it for their careers aren't interested in having children. At least the ones around me anyway. Wise choice. Unless you want two careers and no sympathy.
