I Don't Know How She Does It

Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

Multitasking 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.
