  • Short, sweet, frantic, and to the point. "I Don't Know How She Does It" is a pretty typical chick flick. It's about a woman named Kate(Sarah Jessica Parker) juggling marriage, kids, and a high stress job. Parker does a good job, as does the rest of the cast. The problem I had with the movie wasn't the acting, it was the way it was presented. First each character is constantly giving a testimony about Kate. Almost like the movie is a documentary. While it works sometimes, other times it is kind of annoying and ruins the flow of the movie. At an hour and ninety minutes it flies by pretty quick, and comes off just like Kate's life. All over the place, disorganized, and very frantic. By the end you'll say to yourself "I don't know how she did it". I'm not huge on chick flicks, so really this movie isn't for me. But up until she passed out, I think my wife enjoyed it. So as long as women enjoy it, then it accomplishes it's goal.

    A serviceable comedy about women who want to 'have it all,' 'I Don't Know How She Does It' takes a look at a working mother who faces the challenge of balancing her career and her family.

  • While the future of the HBO franchise hangs in the air after a less-than-successful film sequel, star Sarah Jessica Parker is now starring in an upcoming film that seems to serve as an unofficial preview of what a third SATC movie might look like. "I Don't Know How She Does It" features Parker as a working Manhattan woman narrating the action to the audience as she moves through professional and social dilemmas. Same title, same conceit.

    I Don't Know How She Does It purports to be about the difficult choices of modern motherhood, but it's too prim and cautious a movie to dip a pedicured toe into the murky waters of real choice.
