Review: I Don't Know How She Does It


I sent this movie back to netflix so I am flying solo on this review.

Sarah Jessica Parker plays an overworked career woman, wife and mother. her husband picks up the slack and us understanding but he now is becoming a major player in his career so the juggling act begins. Family and friends do not know how she does it but she does it.

Okay so there are the other mothers who might be a tad cynical of her and the family vacations cut short because work calls and she must attend a meeting. There is always the air travel, and she falls asleep before she can actually do the art of lovemakin.

Still she tries and finally one day she realizes that her life must change starting with her and in order to make this happen she cannot tell people what they want to hear but instead she has to say "NO" and do it with dignity and kindness and I mean who cares if she buys an apple pie and puts it in a pie dish to pass off as her own baked good for her child's school bake sale?

LOL this is a really fun feel good movie. It has been a long time since I have been this kind of a mother but I see it in my daughters. I also can relate to some of the incidents so this is a movies that crosses all age groups, generations and boundries.

Peirce Brosnan is in this movie as is Jane Curtain and other top actress/actors. if you are looking for a weekend move you could do worse than I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT.

I give it 8 out of 10 stars.




  1. I do want to see this movie. Thanks for letting me know it'll be worth it.

  2. Thanks for the review. Now I'll add it to my netflix queue.
