I Don't Know How She Does It DVD|
The archetypal single gal from Sex and the City dives into family life in I Don't Know How She Does It. Kate Reddy, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, could easily be Carrie Bradshaw's alternate life: a rising finance analyst, Kate feels guilty for short-changing her husband (Greg Kinnear) and two children. When she gets the opportunity to work with a high-powered exec (Pierce Brosnan), the already tense family relationship gets stretched to the breaking point and Kate has to make some hard choices. I Don't Know How She Does It is pure formula, but executed well. The entire cast (also including Christina Hendricks as a single-mum best friend, Kelsey Grammer as an overbearing boss, Seth Meyers as a sniping rival, and a scene-stealing Olivia Munn as Kate's assistant) play their parts with skill, while Parker's rapport with Kinnear is particularly warm and persuasive. Moreover, you have to admire the sheer chutzpah of hammering home political points about double standards in the workplace and then delivering a fairy-tale ending. Men have realised the importance of family over work in dozens upon dozens of cookie-cutter heartwarming flicks; apparently it's time that women got the opportunity to do the same. No doubt this signifies some important cultural shift; college theses are waiting to be written about it. --Bret Fetzerfrom£2.76 | RRP:

Comedy starring Sarah Jessica Parker as a careerist mother struggling to balance her work-life commitments. Kate Reddy (Parker) is a high-powered finance executive whose day job is almost as demanding as her two small children and her husband, Richard (Greg Kinnear), who she largely supports. Her duties as both mother and breadwinner are matched by those of her caustic friend, Allison (Christina Hendricks), and feared by her brilliant subordinate, Momo (Olivia Munn), who prefers to focus on her career and leave aside thoughts of marriage and children. As if Kate's life wasn't complicated enough, she finds herself handling a New York account that brings her into contact with Jack (Pierce Brosnan), a charmer who threatens to lead her astray...
