Actress Sarah Jessica Parker stars as Kate Reddy, a woman who adores her job but also loves the thought of her young children and a happy marriage. Though she favors her job, she knows in her heart family comes first. Kate seems to be bringing home the bacon this time with her out of work husband Richard (played by Greg Kinnear), who hopes to be an architect. Kate is certainly the kind of working mom who has more than ten things on her plate at once and makes the mandatory “list” every night.
Kate has an important position at a Boston financial firm but when an incredible opportunity comes her way, things turn for the worst at the homestead. She has to bear the consequences of being away from family while traveling throughout the country to meet up with her experienced new partner Jack (portrayed by Pierce Brosnan). Though having the support of good friend and co-worker Allison (Christina Hendricks), Kate still hits some rough patches along the way.
Along this chapter for Kate, she must learn what is really important and what matters most to her life.
I personally loved the movie. It really captures its female viewers and can easily relate to mothers today. I found it funny, romantic, and definitely entertaining! If someone asked me what to see, I wouldn’t hesitate to respond with “I Don’t Know How She Does It”, worth every penny!
