Sarah Jessica Parker returns to theaters in September of 2011 and she’s leaving Carrie Bradshaw behind, for now. Her newest effort is the romance I Don’t Know How She Does It and while the title likely won’t fit on a marquee, the premise is at least relatively simple.
Parker portrays Kate, a financial analyst and mother of two living in Boston and trying to balance work and home life. Things get extra complicated when Kate’s husband, played by Greg Kinnear, loses his job and Kate picks up a very important new client played by Pierce Brosnan.
Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks co-stars as Parker’s assistant while Kelsey Grammer plays her boss and Seth Meyers from Saturday Night Live takes on the role of her sycophantic work rival. The trailer has a couple of rather humorous moments, Parker’s unglamorous first encounter with Brosnan stands out as does Seth Meyer‘s joke about his character’s children. It looks generic but still innocent enough to be somewhat enjoyable. Plus I’m sure the female audiences won’t have a problem flocking to this one.
Check out the trailer for I Don’t Know How She Does It, courtesy of Yahoo Movies:
Kate Reddy devotes her days to her job with a Boston-based financial management firm. At night she goes home to her adoring, recently-downsized architect husband Richard and their two young children. It’s a non-stop balancing act, the same one that Kate’s acerbic best friend and fellow working mother Allison performs on a daily basis, and that Kate’s super-brainy, child-phobic young junior associate Momo fully intends to avoid. When Kate gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, Richard also wins the new job he’s been hoping for — and both will be spreading themselves even thinner. Complicating matters is Kate’s charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer, who begins to prove an unexpected source of temptation.
