This isn’t gonna be easy, guys. Above is the trailer for Sarah Jessica Parker‘s I Don’t Know How She Does It. Watching this trailer requires you to subject yourself to the following: a Parker-style voice-over, a story about the difficulties of being a mom, a mammogram joke that involves Kelsey Grammer, and pretty much all the things that make movies targeted to women terrible. The question is: how far can you make it through the trailer before getting frustrated, bored or both?
Directed by Douglas McGrath, and based on a book by female British author (natch) Allison Pearson, the film is about a business woman who must attain balance between work and home life. “Is such a thing possible,” all you middle aged female Screen Junkies readers are surely wondering to yourselves. You’ll want to be first in line to see I Don’t Know How She Does It
on September 16, 2011 to find out.
Also starring Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear, Christina Hendricks Olivia Munn and Seth Meyers, so if Parker wasn’t the lead, at least the cast would have interested me.
