I Don’t Know How She Does It is dull and unfunny 

Sarah Jessica Parker returns with TV movie masquerading as cinema

Sarah Jessica Parker’s new movie, I Don’t Know How She Does It, is a comedy that fails to deliver any laughs. Parker plays Kate Reddy, a mother of two who works during the day as a financial analyst. As a project emerges involving the creation of a new retirement savings plan, Parker must decide between spending time with her family or furthering her career. The film’s efforts to provide a relatable storyline of a wife and husband trying to juggle their careers and family life offers nothing new for viewers and feels more like a made-for-TV movie than a theatrical release. The plot lacks tension, glazing over any dramatic points in favour of cheap jokes about stay-at-home-moms and asshole co-workers. It’s not as terrible as Sex and the City 2, but equally as boring.
