Becky and I went to see the new movie I Don’t Know How She Does It a couple of weeks ago at the AMC Theater in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Fandango website at I Don’t Know How She Does It, which is a good site to check for show times, describes the movie as follows:
“As an employee at a Boston-based financial firm, Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica Parker) struggles daily to balance the demands of her high-powered career with the needs of her husband (Greg Kinnear) and children. When she gets an account that requires fre quent trips to New York and her husband gets a new job, Kate finds herself spread even thinner. Complicating Kate’s life even more is new business associate Jack Abelhammer (Pierce Brosnan), who throws temptation into the mix.”
I Don’t Know How She Does It is a cute movie about a modern working woman who has way too much on her plate, while trying to raise her family. The story is good, it’s definitely a “Chick Flick”, but it shows how crazy it is for many working woman today to manage children, manage a career, and keep her marriage.
There are opportunities for the family to call it quits increases as the stress becomes great for both of the parents try to juggle their careers and family responsibilities. There are also a temptation for the main character to leave her husband and run off with a millionaire that she has been working close without throughout the film.
I liked this movie and so did Becky, but it’s not a fantastic and memorable movie. It has a good message about family and juggling work, while not getting so carried away in a career that it destroys your family in the process. I think it’s fitting for today where careers can be lost quickly and it’s getting more and more difficult for people to “just say No.” to their bosses for fear of losing their jobs. I think the critics didn’t like it because we’re in an Economy where many people don’t have a job. Becky and I would both rent this movie as a good Rental.
