I Don't Know How She Does It product reviews

Based on Allison Pearson's best-selling debut novel and written by Aline Brosh McKenna, this follows the day-to-day life of Kate Reddy, a successful investment banker who struggles to balance her high-powered career with an equally demanding role as a mum.

Kate Reedy devotes her days to a career with a Boston-based financial management firm. At night she goes home to her adoring, recently down-sized architect husband Richard and their two children. It's a non-stop balancing act, the same one that Kate's acerbic best friend and fellow working mother Alison performs on a daily basis and that Kate's super-brainy, child-phobic 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, who begins to prove to be an unexpected source of temptation.

When I put my name for to review "I Don't Know How She Does It" all I knew was it was a chick-flick. When it arrived and I looked at the cover I didn't think I was going to enjoy it because it starred Sarah Jessica Parker and Pierce Brosnan as well as Kelsey Grammar. These actors tend to irritate me. I couldn't have been more wrong. I loved the movie.

I could really relate to the lead character. I think every working mother can. It is essentially about the struggle to be everything: a great mum, a successful career woman, wife, friend and organise a household. As you can imagine things go wrong and upset the fine balance.

There were a few laughs but not as many as I would have thought. It did have me scratching (all the mums know what one topic will start that). Mainly I felt an empathy for Alison and grateful that my life isn't as hectic as hers and hopefully never will be.

Now that I own the DVD I will probably watch it again and will lend it to other mums. It is certainly a movie for mums. I don't think those without children or dads would enjoy it as much.

It is only 86 minutes long and is a relaxing movie. No real thought is involved. The ending isn't what I predicted. It is actually a better result for Alison.

Product reviews for listing 1951: Bee Movie
Director: Steve Hickner and Simon J. Smith

Product image for Bee MovieEveryone is buzzing for BEE MOVIE, the hit comedy from creator and comic icon Jerry Seinfeld. Ambitious young worker bee Barry B. Benson soars out into the world with the high-flying pollen jocks in search of nectar and adventure. But when he breaks one of the cardinal rules of beedom and speaks to humans, Barry sets off an un-bee-lievable chain of events that proves that even a little bee can make a big difference!
