Not as good as the book but nevertheless, better than your critic would have us believe. Whose daft idea was it to send a bloke to review this film? It's all about maternal guilt and blokes cannot know much about that!
I Don’t Know How She Does It (12A)

Time Out says
Tue Sep 13 2011Multitasking Boston mother Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica Parker, still doing her insufferable sage routine from ‘Sex and the City’) has a devoted husband (Greg Kinnear), two beautiful children and a job she loves – in finance, no less. To those around her, Kate’s a miracle worker who somehow juggles the pressures of bake sales and number crunching. But it doesn’t take long before Douglas McGrath’s painfully unfunny comedy reveals the awful truth: this woman is stressed out. If Stan Brakhage can create a movie literally out of dead moths, then humour can surely be extracted from the first-world problems of an investment strategist. The situations are third-rate sitcom at best, while a bevy of television stars past and present orbit SJP to constantly affirm her character’s rightness in all things
