I Don’t Know How She Does It Review
17 January 2012
Excerpt: If Conan is the ultimate male fantasy, I Don’t Care How She Does It is the ultimate female fantasy. No, Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t running around chopping off the heads of her fellow tribeswomen (but that would be awesome ), but it’s a mother struggling while raising two kids, putting together that big proposal, and dealing with her husband. How grand.
Conclusion: All these characters are trying to do is create more time for themselves. More time to be with their families, but also more time to get their work done. If time is so important to them, why are they wasting everyone else's? There's nothing to like about 'I Don't Know How She Does It.' It's tedious and dull. The characters are sitcom stereotypes instead of full-fledged characters. There isn't anyone to care for here.
Excerpt: I Don’t Know How She Does It is an incredibly jaded, often biased and consistently judgmental film with no concept of how it or its characters are coming across. One gets the sense it seeks to operate as a manifesto for overly criticized and underappreciated working mothers. Unfortunately, it’s too one sided to ever address any of the negatives with honesty or depth.
Excerpt: In the wake of Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel The Devil Wears Prada , the publishing world saw a dramatic boom in an already-extant subgenre of chick-lit: The swoony romance between a young, awkward New York ingénue and the bland Perfect Man who falls for her in spite of her copious faults, mostly because he doesn’t have enough personality or agency to engage with them.
Conclusion: I Don't Know How She Does It is an unimaginative, go-nowhere movie that offers no insight other than to show its audience that, yes, busy people do exist (who knew?). Flat characters, no direction, and a repetitive structure all add up to one of the worst movies of 2011, and maybe the year's most purposeless, which begs the question, just who is this movie's target audience?
Excerpt: This film aims to reflect on the trials of being a working mother in today's post-feminist society. What it does instead is present a hideously outdated view of the clichéd gender roles and insult the intelligence of anyone with two brain cells to rub together, especially working mothers themselves. This is a tedious, unfunny, and poorly made film. The dialogue is so cringe-worthy, and the overall tone so depressing, that it will leave you wondering not how they do it...
Excerpt: Vad är det Kate (Parker) ska klara av? Jo, att vara både framgångsrik karriärkvinna och omtänksam mamma. Frågan ställs till hennes omgivning som om vi befunne oss i en allvarlig dokumentär med medspelare som svarar direkt in i kameran och är sååå imponerade. Och då ska vi betänka att Kate förutom ett välbetalt jobb har en barnflicka som tar hand om sonen, en förskola som tar hand om dottern, en snäll och uppställig man och icke minst en effektiv sekreterare på jobbet.
Excerpt: Synopsis: I I Don't Know How She Does It möter vi finanskvinnan Kate Reddy som har total kontroll över sin hedge-fond men ett smärre kaos på hemmafronten med en man och två barn. Hennes mest saknade tillgång är tid. Att jonglera karriär, familj, mansgrisar på jobbet, föräldramöten, skolbasarer och få dagen att räcka till, är allt annat än enkelt.
