I Don't Know How She Does It Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: 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.

Review: The gender roles are finally reversed as Sarah Jessica Parker plays the mother/wife that is working too hard and neglecting her family.   This film includes a stellar cast in her, Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan and Christina Hendricks!  Also, relative newcomer Olivia Munn does a nice job.  The comedy/drama centers around the complications of modern family life, complete with neglect of the kids and husband and the temptations of infidelity.  This ends up being a nice reality check, but with a good Hollywood ending.  A charming film, albeit predictable.
