I Don’t Know How She Does It
Sarah Jessica Parker, Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan
SJP plays Kate Reddy, a finance banker with a husband and two small children. She has a very busy life – juggling career and family. When she has the opportunity to launch a new product with work, she struggles to fit everything in and keep everyone happy.
Not too many people reviewed this film positively, some saying it’s a “feminist rant” and some getting very upset at the idea that women are being portrayed as marvellous and able to do many things at once! Not too many men liked it (something threatening here?) and although it didn’t get great reviews by women, many didn’t mind it either.
It’s light, it has funny moments (like when she gets head lice), it doesn’t have to be true, and there is romance. But it’s also rather simplistic and US cheezy. Maybe wait until it’s on TV rather than hiring it unless you love SJP.
