I Dont Know How She Does It
In this comedy of a working mother trying desperately to juggle marriage, children, and a high-stress job, Greg Kinnear will play Sarah Jessica Parker’s husband and Jane Curtin will be Kinnear’s mother, Parker’s mother-in-law
This is another one of those films in which a woman, in this case Sarah Jessica Parker as Kate Reddy, juggles her home life, children and a stressful job. She plays a Boston investment manager who has to do extensive traveling. To her credit, she makes the comment that her out-of-work architect husband Richard (Greg Kinnear) and her children mean the most to her, but due to her conversations with her friends about a lot of domestic issues, and the fact Pierce Brosnan is featured as a NY City client who presents a bit of temptation to Kate, this is mainly one for the ladies.
The rest of the cast features the well-known Jane Curtin as Kate’s mother and Kelsey Grammar as her demanding boss. The film features a few comedic moments and the plot thickens when hubby Richard lands a new contract, making working out the family details interesting. But, unfortunately, the movie’s humor focuses a lot on sexual comments and in addition features strong language, preventing us from awarding our Dove Seal to this one. We wish it was a family-friendly film, but it is what it is, and it isn’t family friendly!
