User reviews on I Don't Know How She Does It
I do not know why I keep going to see films like this one, i guess I keep expecting something good and interesting but unfortunately it almost never happens. This film could have been so good, it could have shown the choices and sacrifices that modern women have to make every day, instead it was full of silly scenes filled with even sillier dialogue and overbearing character of Sarah Jessica Parker. I do not understand why the filmmakers made her character so annoying, it was hard for me to watch and not want to punch her every time she was on the screen. I wish the filmmakers expanded on the stories of other women in the film instead of focusing all of the attention to Parker’s character which was not likable at all.
I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was not funny, not interesting and worst of all it was absolutely not realistic even though the whole point of the film was to show how a modern day women can realisticly cope with all the responsibilities that are presented to her. The characters in the film are not developed at all and most of the supporting cast is just there to deliver silly lines that are supposed to explain how she really does it, it is ridiculous. I think a women who is actually balancing motherhood and career should be offended by this film because it makes it look way too easy. Overall, I do not recommend seeing this film in the theaters.
This movie was quite a disappointment. It has such a strong comedic cast with Sarah Jessica Parker, Kelsey Grammar and Greg Kinnear but material that just isn't funny. The 'real' issues (was it a drama?) the movie addressed were all wrapped-up neat and tidy at the end which, of course, is a farce. Truthfully, I had trouble staying awake through the first half but didn't find the last half much more interesting. I didn't laugh at all so I wouldn't consider this a comedy... maybe a pseudo-dramedy?!?
It's hard not compare this film with Sex & The City, Sarah Jessica Parker's much more famous series. In fact, her character here also does a lot of voice over, so the filmmakers practically beg us to compare the two. Too bad for them, because where Sex & The City (the show, not the movies) actually had something fresh and interesting to say about working women, I Don't Know How She Does It doesn't.
This film includes every cliche you can think of: Parker, the working women trying to juggle kids, husband and career; the sweet husband; the manager with a crush on our heroine; her best friend; the back-stabbing coworker. They're all here, and just as boring and predictable as you would imagine.
The script is the major culprit here. It's just not funny, which doesn't help when you're trying to make a comedy. It also has nothing new to say, which, considering the times we live in and the opportunity to make a statement about it, is pretty disheartening. I guess that's what I get for seeing a chick-flick.
I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was not funny and not realistic at all, it is kind of disappointing because this film could have been really good, but it tried to hard and failed. first of all, the issues that the main character is having do not feel real or genuine and in the end of the film the issues kind of disappear very conveniently. The film has a great cast but it fails to take advantage of that and mostly the supporting cast is just there to blurb out dialogue. The whole film feels forced and the comedy is not funny at all. Overall, it is a big disappointment.
This is a comedy about Kate Reddy who is a finance executive and supports her husband and two children, the film is directed by Douglas McGrath and stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Pierce Brosnan and Kelsey Grammer. I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. All the issues in the film do not look real or bad enough and in the end they are resolved way to easily. The real life is way more complicated and hard and also more interesting than this film, I am sad to say that because this movie has a very strong cast. The film is also not funny at all, I mean I did not laugh once and it was supposed to be a comedy. I am sad to say this, but the film is a failure.
